Well, I ought to start by saying thank you to Daisy for writing yesterday's post. Truthfully I was so shattered yesterday that I wasn't really functioning at all! What is it about going away on holiday and coming back sooooo tired? Perhaps it just means that I am totally relaxed. One highlight - I am now dropping off to sleep really quickly so I hope that I have broken that cycle!
Today, with a tad more energy I decided to tackle some much needed tasks around the house. First up was cleaning the windows in the conservatory - I can't tell you when they were last done! Being a large conservatory, and being a warm, if a tad overcast, day I only managed half of the windows before it became too hot. Still that's progress and I can do the rest tomorrow.
Next up was mowing the lawn. It should have been done before I went away and was rather long. I have cut it once on the highest setting but am hoping to go over it tomorrow with a closer cut.
The suitcase has, at last, been unpacked, washing completed and dried - ready for ironing (and packing again for the weekend - what a jet setter I am becoming!)
I have even managed to make and attach a pin cushion to my Lynette Anderson inspired sew organised bag - ready for her workshop next Saturday (the bag was made at the sewing retreat in March and has been waiting for the pin cushion to finish it off!)
On a more positive note, I entered my mileage for last week on to my spreadsheet and have now realised that I am over halfway to my 1000 miles in a year (they call it a Proclaimers milestone!). By my calculation I now need to aim to complete 3.1 + miles each day to reach the target! Given that I have some "sit down "days ahead of me that might be more difficult than it sounds - but I am plodding on!
But, I hear you cry, surely you know that this is World Embroidery Day - what embroidery have you've been doing to mark the occasion? Well, I will admit to preparing (cutting out, backing and tracing) two blocks to take on holiday next weekend with me -and then settled down to an old film with some stitchery that I set The Textile Group for their summer holiday!
