I was quite busy last week so missed my chance. You’ll get a double dose this week!
This is my desk this week; not very exciting. on the right are the cards I’ve started to prepare using the SU Gentle Waves background stamp and the new Let’s Set Sail bundle. On the left are a couple of things for posting. I’ve put a few things up for sale on Ebay and sold half a dozen so far.
So, here’s my desk from last week with the Christmas gift tags made from the cards I showed last time:
I have given them to the local Christian bookshop to sell later in the year.
Last week, Kevin was able to go swimming for the first time since his accident. We both went to the over-60’s session. He managed to do 24 lengths to my feeble 8! He had a go at backstroke, which is his favourite, but his left shoulder is where the metal bracket is and he couldn’t do it.
We’re having the roof replaced this month and the scaffolding went up last week; it took 3 days. It’s made it very dark in the house, but it will be worth it when it’s all done along with the soffits, facias, gutters, and downpipes. We emptied the loft over the weekend. I say ‘we’; I mean Kevin. There’s stuff up there from the previous owners that we’ll have to get the roofers to help with – a HUGE bag full of carpet offcuts, the old cold water tank, and something right in the back corner – we have no idea what it is. The work on the roof has started. They’ll be fitting the two Velux windows tomorrow, hopefully. We’re having the internal roof joists re-inforced as well.
Our choir rehearsals are getting more intense. We’re performing Vaughan Williams’ Sea Symphony in St Asaph Cathedral in May. It’s certainly not an easy piece but will be amazing. Of course, the most important thing at the moment was to decide what colour flower the ladies will be wearing on the day! I have volunteered for the last year or so to get hold of flower brooches for our various performances and when we have 2 or 3 choirs joining together it’s better if we all have the same one, rather than 60 different shades of whatever. We generally wear red ones, but we had yellow for Haydn’s Creation and when we sang in the last Eisteddfod before Lockdown. We’ve decided to go with blue this time. I bought 4 different shades of blue so we could decide which would be best, and we’ve gone for the Teal one (bottom left).
I think that’s me for this week.
Hwyl am y tro!
