Doing what we fancy

It's been very much a day of doing what we all want here at Number 38.

Mark has a new boat that he's been tinkering with and took out to sail on the lake this evening.
I have new books and have spent the day reading and crocheting.
Amy is teaching herself to play the ukulele. 
Thomas has been reading a minecraft book and gadgeting as he does.
So, nothing exciting here today, but 4 happy Number 38-ers.

  1. I love days like that. In fact, the week has been very much in that style so far. Violet is in her room playing with dolls, Bill is at work, and I am cleaning! ha ha.

    Just have to love a ukulele. Marilyn Monroe made them the ultimate fabulous instrument to play, when she was Sugar in Some Like it Hot. Made it so amazingly glamorous!

    Nope. Still not emailed you. Had planned to, but then spent about 9 hours cleaning the kitchen (not true, I procrastinated for around 8 but got it done eventually).

    1. Yes, they are good days but sometimes when I've done what I want I feel guilty that I should have been doing something more productive. To make up for it today I'm ironing, taking Thomas for a haircut and then going to buy him a coat for school. There, feel better about yesterdays non-productive day already!

      Amy's ukulele playing sounds very similar whatever song she's strumming, so she has a long way to go yet haha.

      Ah, no worries about the e-mail, you enjoy whatever it is you're doing. We'll catch up at some point :) Enjoy your day. xx

    1. Glad you've had a good day Sheila. I feel like that. If I've done loads I can happily give myself a day off but if I have the day off first I end up feeling guilty that I should have done something more productive. I think guilt was made for women. xx

  3. I have read the top two books in the pile and liked both. My daughter and I did a craft workshop at some local sheltered housing today-she was shattered! Some of them are in the early stages of dementia and some are just rude old biddies who feel free to say anything! One wee lady kept saying she had no chocolates for the box we were making but ebery time Leanne gave her two, she promptly unwrapped and ate them. It's good to give something back to our community and Leanne still misses her Gran-she died in 2000. I am getting out the big sewing machine tomorrow and finishing up some WIPs before I start anything else-I promise. Glad you are having a chilled holiday with the offspring and hope you enjoy Ireland. Catriona

    1. What a lovely thing for you to do together. Had to laugh at the chocolates. Old people can be really funny, especially the ladies and yes, they can definitely be really rude as well. We gave a lady one of Joan's sweets because she asked for one but it had a nut in the middle and she didn't like it so she just spat it on the floor! I'm guilty of having too many things on the go as well. I really need to pack some bits up and send them off so I can clear the decks. Happy sewing. I shall expect a progress report of what you've managed to get done :) xx

    1. We did enjoy our day doing what we wanted, although the only person who really had a different day was me. The others just do what they want anyway. But there lies the story of every woman/mother/wife. xx

  5. As you know, I'm in agreement with you. Those days are THE best days!

    1. Oh they definitely are Rachel. But then I feel I have to make up for it the day after and that feeling I don't like at all. By the time I've done my pile of ironing though I'll have definitely redeemed myself! xx

  6. Breast Actives

    One of the most known trainers in today's fitness and weight loss industry is Craig Ballantyne, the author of the Turbulence Training fat loss program. In recent years this has become one of the most popular diet and fitness programs online. But does this program really work or is Craig Ballantyne a scam?http://cruisecontroldietbookreview.com/nerve-renew-review/

    1. Yes, whether Craig Ballantyne is a scam or not has been something I've been pondering over for a while. I've no idea to be honest, but I'll put finding out on my 'to do' list and will let you know. xx

  7. It's not often everyone gets to do just as they please, how nice!

    I'm having a quiet day today, I've made some soup to warm me up, and I'm making flowers for the charity shop, lovely.

    1. It is nice when everybody is quite happily keeping themselves entertained doing what they want. It's definitely been soup weather here, cold, dull and raining. The flower making sounds interesting. What are you making them out of and is it for a special event? xx

    2. The flowers are from some fabric I was given a little while ago. They're not for anything special, just to liven up the window displays a bit.

    3. They're lovely. I'm sure they'll look great dotted around the displays. xx
