Loose Ends

We got SUCH a lot done this weekend - you know, all those little jobs that hang around for months just waitingtill you get a Round Tuit.

On Saturday we walked along to town for lunch, then went to Argos and bought some curtain hold-backs for the room that had the recent paint job, and some wine racks to put in one of the understairs cupboards. We even found a clock we could live with. Came home then loaded the car with the bags and boxes of stuff that has been waiting to go to the Charity Shop since we moved in and got rid of that lot - lo and behold, another empty cupboard.

Up went the clock, the little cabinet in the cloakroom and the meccano set that were the wine racks were built. Now on a roll Hubby went outside and tidied up all the loose bits of wire and cable which seemed to be dangling all over the outside walls. I finally got round to taking up the curtains which we inherited with the house but were at least a foot too long, so now they are up and looking respectable and neat in their new hold-backs.
Even the photo of Gorgeous Niece which has stood by the bookcase for the last 3 months is now on the wall. Sadly we ran out of nails (picture hooks are no use in these walls....) so the barometer remains on the floor, and most of the pictures are still lurking accusingly in the cardboard box in the dining room. Maybe next week...

We moved stuff back into the spare room. it's going to be a "sewing-cum-scalextric-cum room for stuff without another place to go" sort of place. We'll move the sofabed in there once the new furniture arrives so it'll be convertible to another guestroom when required.

My Hubby says I make a mess when I do anything crafty. This weekend I got my own back. I think every hammer, screwdriver, toolbox, etc etc that he owns (and there are many) all ended up scattered around the hallways and rooms. Next time he tells me I'm messy I can remind him. I should have taken a photo.


Two cards to show you, the pink one is for my Aunt's birthday, the other was for a wedding - I saw this paper when I was out with the Bride to Be, I wonder if she remembers! I made another wedding card recently but forgot to do a photo - it's got a bit of a journey to it's destination, but hopefully when it arrives the new bride will kindly take a photo for me (wink)
