Oh, my, what a week, and then the clocks changed! I’m normally really good at remembering about the clocks changing and usually send an email to everyone at church to remind them; not this time! I had my Easter Crafternoon on Saturday, which went well, but we ended up moving the tables ourselves and setting out the chairs for church so, by the time we’d done that, I was exhausted. I had a long soak in the bath and hubby cooked steak for dinner – yum. Hence, Sunday morning, my regular alarm clock didn’t go off as it was an hour behind. Thankfully, I have a 2nd alarm on an old mobile phone, which of course, updated automatically. But for some reason, Kevin lept out of bed like it was on fire when it went off – honestly, it’s not that loud!
Not much on my desk this week, except I now have one of these in my office/craft room:
We’ve just replaced our old phone as it wasn’t holding on to the charge and even new batteries didn’t help. Our old set up had the main handset in the hall and 2 others: one in the bedroom and one in Kevin’s office. We’ve gone for an extra handset so I can have it in my room. It’ll live on my Poundland Lazy Susan, which is very handy. I won’t have to struggle to get out of my chair to race to the phone when it rings.
The Crafternoon went very well, but I completely forgot to take any pics. I was expecting about 18 people but, for whatever reason, only 7 turned up. I’d had weird dreams the night before where I’d forgotten half the stash and the other half was still in the car but I couldn’t find the car, and then I was in a different building with lots of little rooms and corridors and I couldn’t find my way out to get to the car. Thankfully, everyone enjoyed themselves. One lady sent me pics of her decoupaged eggs and the bunny/egg garland and has given me permission to put them on here.
I’m getting ready for my first guest of the season, who’s arriving on today. An opera singer no less. He’s singing with the Welsh National Opera at Venue Cymru in The Magic Flute and, by a complete fluke, I’m going to see him tomorrow evening! I was popping some flowers over to my friend, Helen, and she asked me if I liked opera as she and her husband had tickets but her husband couldn’t go. I said yes – never been to the opera before. I shan’t tell my guest until I’ve been.
The roof is almost complete and the gutters, soffits, fascias, and downpipes should be all done by Friday – hooray! I’m getting fed up with the scaffolding and the mess now. It should have taken 3 weeks and we’re now on week 7. At least it’s not as bad as next door – their roof took 7 months!
Finally, here’s a picture of my gorgeous new bedding from Asda (£19 for the King Size, if you’re interested). I love it! I’d been looking for an extra set of bedding and this fit the bill perfectly.
I think that’s me for this week. Hwyl am y tro!
