Hi there, I'm back. Couldn't quite manage to put in an appearance last week.
I wasn't too sure I'd manage this week as we are in the middle of having our windows replaced and I felt so tired earlier but have rallied a little :-) - I haven't been sleeping and getting up to be ready for the fitters to arrive at 8 a.m. They only seem to work half a day though - maybe the heat I'm not sure. Today was difficult for them- an awkward window and difficult to get at part of it.
From the inside - the three
There is a little door to access for cleaning
Then on the other side of the wall / door is the fourth window along.
It caused a few problems as I said. I will be glad when it is all done - we were in two minds about what to do , they were metal frames in excellent wooden frames and we had looked after them. However they were not doubled glazed and we were so cold last winter. Have to admit that they do make the rooms brighter. I'm getting myself geared up to the big one tomorrow - the lounge!!
Anyway I digress- sorry Julia - my craft area/aka dining room is in a right state as we moved stuff in there - there is already a double glazed window in there, apart from having one of the sealed units replaced it is not being touched- only room that's not.
I am working on altering a wooden box. Hopefully share next time.
So much stuff around :-(
On Saturday 28th July I did my Crafternoon Tea - my friend hosted for me as I was in a bit of a muddle preparing for windows
It was a lovely afternoon, nine ladies and me! :-)
Goody bags in place ready to start!
The lady below in pink hosted for me and did the food.
We made a card, stamped on two tiles to use as coasters and made a box for the coasters.
So if you would like to see what other crafters have been up to then join in WOYWW - started by Julia
Last week we had our grandsons from Tuesday until Friday. Met our D.I.L. half way to collect the boys and then our son to hand them back. We had a super time. Spent a lot of it with our granddaughters, our other D.I.L. and our younger son. There was a trip to the local Arboretum, the golf club range, pub for tea, playing at girls home, swimming and pizza at ours. It was a great , fun filled time and lots of lovely memories made.
Playing on the Pirate 'ship'
Three of the children practising their swing etc :-)
Phoebe was practising getting out the bunker!
And now the windows - :-) no time to get bored!!!
Sorry it's so long.
