Don't want another day like yesterday, it turned into a nightmare.
I have decided that our little 'porch', which isn't a porch any more as we knocked through to make it part of the kitchen, needs decorating. I sort of freshened it a bit last year by painting the squares on the paper below the dado and glossing the woodwork, but really it all needs re-doing including the kitchen ceiling. I've also decided to put myself through a bit of stress and make a Roman blind for the kitchen window re-placing the vertical blind, which I don't like. I say stress because I made one several years ago and they are really hard as getting everything straight isn't the easiest task especially when working space is limited and the floor no longer a possibility for 'crunching' joints. But I shall do it.
So this nightmare of a day began around 10am with a trip to the other side of Preston to buy a new tv aerial. The one we have is only about 3 years old but we have hardly used it as the only tv needing it is in the 'porch' and had a set top box with it. Hassle! so it never went on.
What should have been an easy shopping trip turned out not so because I could only get half of the velcro and blind tape I needed so after coming home, I had to set off again to this side of Blackpool to another Dunelm for the rest. Took me nearly 2 hours due to road closures and volume of traffic. Flippin heck.
I've no idea how many miles we did yesterday but we had both had enough.
Today a family member should have been going into hospital but that's been cancelled until next month and I've just had a phone call cancelling my hair appointment today until next Tuesday. Nothing seems to be going right just now. However, there was one little ray of sunshine - well actually it was a lovely sunny day yesterday in the end and today is blue skies and glorious sun again - sorry, I got carried away - these:
Not sure when I shall find the time to play but am looking forward to when I do.
I wonder what today will bring especially as DH has just started to set up the new tele.........watch this space and better get prepared and close your ears!!!!!!!!!
