Bury Buys today were: 3 books, material, a credit card holder and a worry stone. The credit card holder is for store cards that I use to collect points. I have about 6 of them and they bulk my new purse out too much so I want to keep them separate. I don't use them very often, but if I buy something I may as well get the points.
I looked for a Mollie Makes magazine but couldn't find one so the material is from The Works again. It cost £1 and there are 40 squares. From each square I'll get 2 hexagons, so I don't think that's too bad.
The worry stone is for Thomas. He used to worry about everything and isn't as bad these days, but he really worries about forgetting his reading book and planner for school. He has a morning ritual that involves watching me put his books in his bag, then he'll ask me at least 3 times if they're in there. After he's put his coat on I have to open the bag and show him, 'just to make sure'. When he gets in the car the first thing he does is put his seatbelt on then he'll open the bag to check again. When he gets out of the car he opens it for another check. And as he's walking across the playground he checks for the final time. I've told him it's a special precious stone that takes worry away and he seems to like the idea.
I received a parcel today. Teabags from my bloggy friend Rachel. I've been sent a lovely selection which includes blackcurrant & blueberry, St Clements, Berry Burst, licorice and green tea with fudge and lemon. I started with a St Clements and it's absolutely delicious. These will definitely be on my shopping list.
I put all our housecoats in the washing machine before I went out this morning. The weather has been lovely today and they dried on the line in no time at all. I sat out for quite a while this afternoon crocheting another border on the cardigan and doing my least favourite job of sewing in loose ends.
It was quite hot so I kept popping in and playing with the hexys, trying to arrange them in some sort of pattern. I'm taking the bull by the horns and aiming for a quilt. I'm thinking a circle of flowers in the middle to start with and then I'll take it from there.
The packed lunches are made, Amy's maths tutor has gone, the pots from tea are in the dishwasher and I'm off to put my PJ's on now. I'm going to sew a few more hexys, try another flavoured tea, then it's Scott & Bailey so that's me sorted until bedtime.
