Last I wrote I was anticipating the return of my man. He called on the Friday night to say he'd gotten safely off the ship and was awaiting flights, "what have you been up to?" he asked.
"Well, I've done 2 loads of laundry, some ironing, done the shopping, cleaned the oven, the grill, the fridge, the microwave..."
"Why?" He says, "Its not like I'll be going anywhere near any of them!"
I know I probably shouldn't encourage him but he doesn't half make me laugh. He did then say that as long as there was beer in the fridge and the living room looked tidy he'd be more than happy. Phew! Cos after all that on Thursday and Friday the Crash came big on Saturday... Eventually managed to stay awake for a wee while in the evening so I thought I'd make a start on the Welcome Home dinner, and do a cheesecake.
Got the base made, and thought I'd tidy as I go and get everything washed, wiped and put away before I started on the creamy filling bit, you know, proper housewife that I am...
Next thing I know, I'm standing over by the bin. The base tray is in my hands. It is empty. The base is all over the top of the closed bin, and all over the floor beside it, and even in Elliecats food dish. Around me, the dishes are done, the counter is wiped, the crumbs and empty digestive packet are in the freezer, and I binned the cheesecake base. '*$"&!^%*@!!! Unbelievable. Elliecat seemed quite pleased with it though!
I don't know, when I was working I had been known to answer the phone and apparently be quite helpful in my sleep - at home I blank out for 2 minutes and things go POO. Snot fair!!!
Anyway... Been a little distracted so not a huge amount of sewing done ;-) Did have a few minutes here and there, so I used up some scraps and did some practice.
this idea which I have to admit was great fun...
