So, what do I do with my time? Well nothing very much really. A good chunk of jigsaw was done, a fair bit of reading took place, I printed my 'clocks' for the craft project and several cups of tea were drunk.
I didn't even want to spend time preparing anything for lunch so I put two pieces of bread in the toaster, opened a new pot of jam (there's something lovely about opening a new pot of jam don't you think) and had jam on toast.
It all came to an end at 3pm when I had to go to Middleton to meet Amy at the opticians. Her eyes are slightly worse than last time, enough to warrant new lenses. She chose a new basic pair that she's entitled to at no cost Yippee! and she decided as the ones she's already got aren't even a year old to just have new lenses put in, at a cost of £90 Boo!
I poppped into Wilko on the way home and picked up 3 frames for my 'project'. I ordered these filigree clock hands from Ebay a couple of days ago and they arrived this morning.
For Amy and Thomas' clocks I wanted to put names and dates on the border and thought about those sticky alphabet sheets but couldn't find any so did the old greaseproof paper tracing trick.
Then I put the printed clocks in showing the times Amy and Thomas were born. They could have done with being a bit bigger but they'll be OK. I also set the pocket watch to 4.26am which is the time Matthew was born. I'm struggling with reflections at the moment which is why you can see me in the glass.
And here's Amy's and the clock hands which I also put into a frame. I want to add just a couple more things then I'll take a picture of it all.
I'm off up to see Mum now but I'll be catching up with all your blogs later on tonight. 'Speak' to you soon.
