Early start, lots of mess, and a Bag

Good Evening!
Here I am trying to cool down after having a much too hot bath, whilst reading Easy Living (purchased due to the Free CK wash bag!) with a glass of cold Tonic Water (the only cold drink in the fridge thats non alcholic!) with a bright pink face. I have had a very nice productive day (I can't bear to just sit about) and my day started early thanks to Miss Sue Ma OWING at 6 am today for her brekki. Well I couldn't go back to sleep and Mr M mumbled that he wanted a cup of Coffee, even thought I KNEW he would fall back to sleep as soon as I made it...any way with a sleeping husband and a kitty eating what do you think I did....only got on the sewing machine at 6.45 am. I am mad.

Managed to shorten a pair of Trousers by 7.30am, and after dropping Mr M at the station for his day trip to London (to go to a book signing) off I trotted to the local Charity Shops, which were really rubbish...I did do a good deed though. With the money I planned to treat my self with in the second hand shops, I decided to give it to a sweet man dressed as a Dalmation collecting for the local Animal Sanctuary...but my appetite wasn't fulfilled, so I decided to travel to another town just down the road to see what bargins I could find there. Now I'm not going to name this place, as I really regretted going there, and I don't think its really fair of me to name and shame this town. But, what a depressing place it was, even in the sunshine, plus I couldn't find my way out of it which paniced me a bit. (For a brief moment I thought I was in some weird Twilight Zone Episode.) Any way, I won't be going there again.

So I was home by 1pm, and then decided to make a complete mess of my living room, sewing and cutting and sticking..
a knitting bag...or crafty bag thingy with some lovely Laura Ashley fabric I found. Don't look too closely though!!! it was harder than I thought!!

So now I'm shattered, and I have to go and pick Mr M up at 9....hopefully with some interesting tales of London!
Happy Saturday!!

Wow, what a busy day! I get the French version of Easy Living, called 'Avantages', because it's a good level for my French! It has a great craft section each month - is the English one the same?

I need a day like that once in a while. It makes you feel so good about yourself. Good for you :)

I'm glad to see your room looks like mine when I'm working in it. LOL! Love the bag. Have a great day.

Wow, what a productive day ... and what an early start! I often get 'persuaded' out of bed by my three cats taking it in turns to jump on me, or in Leo's case, biting my elbow until I take notice of him!

Love the bag by the way - the fabric is gorgeous! Hope you have a more restful day today .. and perhaps Mr M will bring you a cup of tea in bed?!
