No flowers from Lidl but the roses from last week are still looking good. These will be added to my dried flower vase in a couple of weeks.
An hour or two spent on the quilt. I've hand sewn the hexys but machine sewed them onto the blocks. I thought this would be harder to do than it was, but it went well. You just need to be light on the foot pedal so it doesn't run away with itself.
I've sewn together 2 sets of 4 blocks. I need to make another 3 flowers then buy some more material for the extra 4 blocks I've decided to make.I also faffed around with washi tape. Really I should do something more productive, but I couldn't think what. I did do some ironing though. It's my fail safe guilt free job. A pile of ironing always means I get to do anything I want to for the rest of the day :)
Is the day we pick up the caravan! It's also non-uniform day for Thomas and Amy's final GCSE exam - physics.
We've spent the past couple of hours loading up the car which finally arrived yesterday. All of this will stay in the van, so in future all we'll have to take will be food and clothes.
I've cooked a pile of sausages for Thomas and we've managed to find a second hand Xbox for a decent price to take with us so he should have a perfect weekend!
As much as the idea of an Enid Blyton style weekend of picnics and country walks appeals, in reality it's not going to happen and as much as I love him, I don't want to spend the next 48 hours entertaining him. So although there will definitely be a walk or two and a board game, cards and dominoes, at some point we all need to do what we enjoy and if that means turning the Xbox on for a while then so be it. I'm happy to accept it will be part of our caravan life and really it's no different than me reaching for the things I've packed that I like to do.
Have a great weekend. Will try and pop by at some point if possible.
