This week hasn’t been a terribly productive one. I’ve had a horrible cold, which has really slowed me down and then the tickly cough has kept me awake half the night. The worst bit about colds is that they are only colds and we are supposed to just get on with things! So without any further ado this is how my week has shaped up…
There’s a feature on our house remodel in Self Build & Design magazine this month. The best part is that all the photos they used were taken by me (whoop!) and amazingly the huge picture of our sitting room (on the third and fourth page of the spread) was actually taken on an iPhone. It looks great in print!
I don’t get a lot of time to watch TV during the week, but I did make time this week to watch the third part of The Missing on BBC1. It’s really quite harrowing viewing for anyone with children, but I’ve been sucked in so I have to watch it to the end. Also it was last week rather than this one, but I had to share with you my other “watch” which was the sun going down over the beautiful village of Bosham. This picture was also taken on my iPhone!
I had a very indulgent evening in my She-Shed the other night sorting out fabric and listening to Radio 4. I have been a Radio 4 listener for years, partly because you never want to listen to what you work with. I particularly love switching it on and finding something that you’d never choose to listen to, but which actually turns out to be fascinating. I’ll let you into a little secret too, my only unfulfilled radio ambition is to present Woman’s Hour… Maybe one day…
I’ve done a lot of plotting this week working out what quilt I’m going to make next (I chose this one) but Theo, his cousin Millie and I also had a chance to tye-die a t-shirt as we were sent the dye and some of the supplies by Dunelm. Millie is a bit of a tie-dye expert, but I think it’s been about 20 years since I last dyed something! Theo absolutely loves his “Millie t-shirt” which we made.
First time doing a full body selfie in the mirror (eek!) but I just had to show off my Boden cardigan which I am absolutely besotted with. It was actually sold out on the website so I stalked it like a demented woman until one came back in stock in my size, now I have to hold myself back from wearing it every day. My top is from Espirit, skirt is Dorothy Perkins, tights are Accessorise and I got the boots at a clothes swap a couple of years ago!
I attended (virtually of course) my first session at the YouTube Academy last night. I’m still blown away at how amazing it is to be able to access this kind of stuff for free in your own house. Loads learned already in the first session and there’s three more to go. I think I may be buying a few bits of equipment to help my vlogging progress…
I’m linking with Morgana and PoCoLo….
