It's been a little busy, bizarrely since I no longer work and am a full time housewife I am even busier, how does that even work?..... Really, I should be relaxing excessively......and eating cake. A lot of cake.
Of course, it's our house, which means I don't seem to have a 'normal' or even 'regular' week. Mr F had to go into the loft to retrieve the Christmas decorations, we have been visited apparently by an army of rats. Who left a whole lot of fecal evidence. The unpacking of the decorations was met with a whack-a-mole approach and genuine terror. Edit; the exterminator came round the next day, only because it was £50 cheaper and I'm tight, he confirmed there has been an infestation of rats *clutches chest in a Scarlett O'Hara manner* he also informs us that mice can get through a hole the size of a pencil and kindly leaves lots of deadly poison.
I'm still wearing clothes though, and remembering to photograph them
(there is a slight possibility the camera is on it's last legs, of course it is haha!)
left over material created a little sister
I'm a little obsessed with skirts at the moment and have decided to make them
they are all MASSIVE and very full
I like it!
This one is fully elasticated and could fit me and a football team in it
this one (like happy's little sister) has a front waistband and elasticated back
I haven't made a waistband before
or an elasticated back
or a skirt for that matter
But then I haven't even posed with a mahoosive pom-pom before
more skirt fabric
Littlest has claimed the middle, I have already made the left
I'm still in the chazza's
a cashmere jumper for under £4!
table sale gloves and pretty earrings
mastering the art of appalling hair and fuzzy photo's whilst showing absurd amounts of dust on the almost broken record player
The unthinkable happened
Our bedroom carpet was replaced
which meant everything bar the emptied wardrobes had to be evicted from the bedroom
emptying it was truly awful
(Mr F politely informs me he did most/all of the work, I'd like to add that occasional supervising is a very difficult and exhausting task)
But on the positive side
we re-arranged the room
to make it more me-friendly
I bought a onesie
and currently like a couple of 1 Direction songs too
who am I?
Mr F does says I look like a ribena berry in it though
the kittens favourite place
Our wonky tree
Cookie loves Papa bear
Mama bear is not happy whatsoever
I'm laundering Santa's outfit
*fingers crossed, I hope he visits*
I mounted Santa on Rudolph
I still have to return my books to the library, I already owe a £6 fine! what's even worse is I haven't read the books, I realise Proust isn't my bag at all (if I have to re-read a sentence in anything I'm not a fan, it's taught me if anything that being as shallow as a puddle isn't a bad thing, my family who are all avid readers accept me for who a I am *wink*)
I'm still not smoking.
And still exercising 5 days a week. My backside is like steel! Ha!
