It was a busy week last week with soaring temperatures so what I needed was some chill out time over the weekend.
Saturday morning we rose early so I could pop into our local town to find a walk-in hairdresser to lessen my thatch. I am back to being short and spiky now so feeling cooler and refreshed to start my week. I already have sewing on my rail to start me off and still have to finish the alterations on a wedding dress. It's Monday so it's the day of the week I spend with Twiglet [my MUCH older sister :-) ]. She comes down to help me out on a Monday [and any other day we can slip in]. Life is for living and we are lucky enough to really enjoy each other's company. Our days are full of fun and laughter. If I have curtains to shorten/make she does the groveling on the floor to measure and cut them for me as my replacement knee doesn't allow me to kneel down. She is truly a treasure and over the years I know life wouldn't have been anywhere as good without her in it. We are truly blessed.
Sunday was our day for buying a new shiny wheelbarrow...yes, it's exciting times here in the village :-) We loaned our old one to our eldest daughter and her partner to build their new extension and they still have lots to do to tidy up the building site/garden so we have said they can keep it. It's very special watching the younger generation building a beautiful home together so that is a small price to pay.
We grabbed a quick Sunday lunch and then pulled up our chairs and put our feet up to watch the tennis. Wow! what a game. They certainly had to work for their achievements. I was exhausted just watching them.
Right, it's time to get moving now. Trousers to shorten, zips to replace and anything else that floods in through the door. Chat later x
