I was up at 6.30am on Sunday and swept and mopped the kitchen and utility room floors whilst the tea was brewing. I brought mugs back up to bed and we lay and read until just after 8am. After replacing the plants from soaking in the utility room sink we had a mug of coffee & a slice of toast.
Back at home we rewarded ourselves with an al fresco coffee in the sunshine. I put away yesterday's laundry and swept the landing whilst Jon rummaged through the woodpile for something suitable to attach the washing line to.
After a bowl of noodles I spent the rest of the afternoon emptying pots, sweeping the patio and sorting out the borders in front of the house whilst Jon worked on Gilbert, which was interrupted by a lovely chat with friends who were passing by. I wrapped my weekend eBay sales, placed an order for some more wool as a friend had requested a hat and then had a bath to ease my aching limbs.
Tea was a veggie burger with some jacket wedges and salad. We watched The Great Pottery Throwdown and after a mug of tea retired to bed where I managed to finish These Demented Lands by Alan Warner which I'd started earlier in the day (verdict: very trippy, disjointed and odd). My next book is ready and waiting....
Monday 1st March heralded the start of meterological spring and somewhat ironically, I awoke to frost, dense fog and freezing temperatures.
After loading the washing machine I did my first Wii Fit workout of the week, hung the laundry to dry in the utility room and wrapped the ebay items I'd sold overnight. After breakfast Jon nipped round the the post office and did a grocery shop on the way back.
Liz had bought me a pot making kit for my birthday and, using some old newspaper, I set to work moulding them whilst Jon repotted some Mother of Thousands cuttings and sewed two varieties of tomato seeds, some sweet peppers and cucumber seeds which we've put on the utility room & landing windowsills.
My Wear:Sleep:Repeat challenge continued with me wearing Sunday's Breton top beneath a vintage India Imports of Rhode Island block printed maxi dress (eBay).
After a break for noodles I photographed and listed a few things on eBay although it was a bit of a challenge as it was absolutely freezing outside. A dear friend who'd been having a clearout called round and dropped a few things off that she thought I might like. This is just a sneak peak. Aren't I lucky to have vintage loving friends who share the same size and tastes as me?
As I mentioned in my last post, Kezzie, a dear blogging pal, turns 40 today and, in the midst of lockdown, parties are banned so she's invited us to a virtual celebration with a Doctor Who themed dress code. It's not too late to join in or send her a birthday message HERE.
Happy Birthday, Kezzie!!
