....I don't really have a blog for you this week. That is, I have a head cold and can't really think of anything worth writing about.
I didn't get the camera out all week so I don't have photos to upload. I was way too busy over the weekend to do my homework, although I was eager to try.
About the only exciting thing that happened was that Fluffy and I went to the Caravan and Camping, and Outdoor Show on Saturday. We knew we wanted to buy things for the new van, and we knew it was going to be expensive, so getting them at the show while on "special" made sense.
We bought a roll up flat sullage hose, roll up flat mains water hose, and caravan cover. Those were the big expensive items. Plus a couple of little gadgets, like a solar light for Dobby for the tent, and poles to replace the old awning props for our extended awning when we use it.
Yesterday Dobby was supposed to clean her room. Her bed is falling apart and needs to be tightened but of course Fluffy can't get anywhere near it. Yesterday, while she was supposed to be doing that she sat on the bed and "snap". It has broken so she can't sleep on it. And, she didn't clean her room.
I spent the day trying to get rid of the last of this stuff. Dobby has been putting clothes out all day for the laundry. Yesterday she put out three loads, today there is another two. Most of what she put out for today's was clean so I folded it and put it away, but there is still 5 loads of laundry. And I am not surprised because she hasn't put clothes in the wash for weeks. Despite my nagging...
I did manage to change the bed linen, do all that washing including my big frog blanket (although it's really too big for the machine and it won't spin it - and it weighs a ton wet!) I packed up stuff for the second hand shop, and moved stuff from the bedroom floor. sometime this morning I need now to vacuum.
And if I didn't have to go to work today I sure wouldn't. I feel like death warmed over. But, there is no one there to do my job so what choice do I have? Sometimes I hate my job...
Anyway, hopefully next week's blog will be a little more exciting. I just seem at the moment to be on an endless cycle of work, chores, sleep, work, chores, sleep. With nothing in between. So, I'll try take some pictures through the week to upload.
Oh, one I do have but haven't uploaded yet is the fabric we are getting in the new van. It's sweet. Seeing it again gave us a better idea of the decor in the van. However, the new 2011 colour for curtains and quilts leaves a bit to be desired. Last year was a lovely light cream neutral colour. This one is like a pale olive/grey colour. Not at all what I exected. I don't like it at all with our "happy fabric" but what choice to I have? Anyway, have to rethink the colour for the bed sheets etc.
Well, off to put the first load of washing in the machine. Thank God the mowers come today. Last time they cut the grass so short it almost died, now in 4 weeks it's a foot tall in places. Up near the house is so long you can't find anything in it, and down the back is crackling under foot from the heat. Stupid grass....
