It is so lovely to come home from work and get going with this little project for my Me on Monday photo
Yes, it's time to get writing my postcards for Sian's postcard exchange. I sent off for some personalised postcards and made a start. I had two overseas ones to send so I wrote a few lines and hot footed it up to the post office before coming home to wash my car. Thank you to the Land Rover who drove through a huge, deep, muddy puddle on the opposite side of the road to me on Friday, causing a tidal wave of yucky slushy snow all over my lovely clean little Mini. Memo to self, it's not a good idea to be out in minus two degrees with a bucket of water and a sponge, you will lose all sense of feeling in your fingers!
It's nice to have a relaxing afternoon here though because the weekend was action packed and non stop. Needless to say much of it involved R's new house. There was central heating to fathom, more boxes to unpack and an Ikea extendable dining room table to build. Not to mention a trip to Harlow to buy a huge mirror which we manhandled into the back of the car, I think it weighed as much as me and it was certainly nearly as tall! My husband's comment on our return "how on earth did you two get THAT in there? said it all.
We had drinks at friends who live close to us on Saturday night, thank goodness it was close because it was a freezing cold walk although the snow had pretty much turned to slush by then. Then onto round two at R's on Sunday to keep her company while she waited for a sofa to be delivered. This included an over excited dog who can't quite understand how she now has two homes to supervise. Plus we need to put into the mix our son who returned home from a trip to Ikea with a double mattress, a tv table, an armchair and a large mirror. All of which he unloaded from his car and has left on our landing along with all the stuff he's boxed up from his bedroom. "It's only for a week Mum, we'll be moving it all out on Saturday." Every time I go upstairs I swear those boxes have multiplied.
So our household is very much in a state of flux. Not long until we really do have an empty nest.
Giving a rather weary wave to Sian, who had the idea of Me on Monday. We're waving our children off, and she's welcoming one intrepid explorer back home!
