There's been a lot of housework done today, but I've found some time to make bias binding straps - 6 in total. It's time consuming but easy enough to do and doesn't cost anything as I just use strips of dress material.
The house feels ready for another mini de-clutter so this week I'll be sorting through books, toys, clothes etc and taking them round to the local charity shop. This is my first attempt. Thinning the books on my bedside cabinet. My favourite was When in Rome. It was fiction but the story was interwoven with facts about Mario Lanza which I found really interesting.
I also popped out to Asda to buy Thomas some new PJ's but they didn't have any. While I was there I picked up a fitted sheet and this box to keep my scraps of material in. I only noticed the corner was damaged when I was taking a photo but I won't be taking it back. It would cost more in petrol and time than what I paid for it.
I have a 'need to buy' list and a 'need to do' list on the go. The main thing is to find kennels for the dogs. Matthew was going to have them but he's got a new job which means he's can't help out. I've been recommended one by my sister-in-laws friend which looks good and I've e-mailed them to see if the dates we need are available, so I'm just waiting to hear. I'm not that keen on them going in but there's not much I can do about it and at least they have each other so hopefully won't fret too much.
