My life has been busy lately!
As evidenced by the presence of the sewing machine in the playroom (although there is no explanation for the presence of the ironing board in my lounge, an inexplicable nesting mystery that!)
At the moment there isn't much happening here - I seem to own only one bobbin, which is full of dark green thread, which won't go with the rest of my list of projects....
Roll on payday...
I have been inspired by Julie Khundi and her philosophy of repurposing.
Meaning finding new uses for old stuff that no one wants.
The Clothes Swap Party leftovers have been giving me ideas, but I suppose I really need to figure a neater way of storing all the
...figure out how much of each size I now have and whether I need more...
...find a cot at some point within the next few months, Miss Piggy will be out of the bassinet (probably with The Jord and/or The Frog's 'help') only too soon!
Find a feeding chair for the baby's room, with a side table....
The list could go on and on, but I'm endeavoring to keep it as simple as possible!
No, I don't know why, but it's so cool I'm not going to question her motives too closely!
It has magazine racks on the side and the armrests open up to store all the remotes.
The Man collects them.
On saturday The Man thought I was punishing him by using the hammer just outside the window, removing the supports (which were clearly not working) in order to assess the damage - at 7:30am.
I wasn't. I just want my couch in my lounge.
(And the ironing board out!)
The garden is growing.
I didn't realise how fast runner beans grew.
That flat is for my mother. I've run out of space!
In fact I had to create a new bed last week (actually it was more a desperate attempt at distracting myself from the stress caused by Immigration NZ making a decision about our work permits and not telling us over the phone... so I double dug a new bed)
just to hold all the seeds that actually germinated for me.
The beans are planted at the back of that bed with an old pallet looming over them. I intend to fashion it into a frame for them to climb.
But the pumpkins are doing well, the peas are doing better in their new spot (NOT full sun apparently) and some more beans to climb up the windbreak/fence thingy.
I may have to wage war on them in the same way I waged war on the snails...
I'm hoping I planted them with enough space!
All thanks to Treena's cow tea...
So forgive me if I'm not posting my usual 3-6 posts a day.
I have a few projects to finish!
