well, I have been in meltdown mode pretty much all week, and that was after starting the week skiing on Monday. So much for blowing out the cobwebs huh. This house is bursting at the seams, and I am not really coping with all this mess. I am pretty much an organised person, but not too over the top or OCD..... no no no .... not me!!
Somehow, I need to manage to put 3 houses into 1, and it does not fit too well. It is a bit of a breeze for Rowing Man, as he escapes each day to work, someone else does all the organising and sorting for him, easy peasy! As I write he has just taken off to put another coat of paint on the walls of the garage/shop - good man! Me I am sitting up in bed with a cuppa writing this post. Waaaaaaaaay to cold to get up yet!!
The first time I got up this morning it was -, YES minus, that is below zero; -9C. Now that is pretty darn cold in anyone's books. But the sun is now shining and it will warm up pretty quickly. To be honest it doesn't actually feel that cold.
yep, this is the inside of the window!!!
On Wednesday I went to visit my sister who was holidaying in Cromwell . Over the Lindis Pass, which was ever so pretty, but oh so treacherous. OOPS, can't show the photo, I have been on here so long the battery in my camera has just died, but trust me, it was pretty spectacular.
Anyway, I bought these;
good solid (summer, well definitely not winter) shoes for the Twizel stony footpaths; and when I got back to Twizel, I bought this...
I have just the spot for this, Rowing Man commented that we didn't have any lamps about, that is because in our current holiday home we have ten thousand down lights, of which any number can be on or off, ... and besides all our lamps are packed away in boxes!
So, despite all the melt-downing, these got finished (well started and finished)...
and this was loaded up, and I did quite a bit on Tuesday evening, was going along swimmingly until the top thread broke, and I put my hand underneath to cut the bobbin thread, and touched a whole mess of tangled threads, ... tension problems, so that was a lot of unpicking to do - got to bed at 2am that night!
Oh well, it is now Sunday after all and the beginning of a new week, the sun is shining, I can hear a birdie chirping, the day is well into the morn, so up I must get and off to paint!!!
Have a great week!
(this new blogger thingee is a bit of a pain in the butt ... it has taken absolutely forever to do this post, and uploading photos and moving them around... uuurghrhr!!, and then my font keeps changing... hmmm 'spect I will get used to it)
