Yep, that sounds like a brilliant idea to me.
My car is loaded up with quite a lot of stuff for the Hospice Shop, and I plan on buying back NONE OF IT!
There is also a fair bit to go over to storage, but that can wait for another day.
First up for the day will be finishing all the washing, I've got about 2 loads of linen/quilts left to wash and hang out.
I also need to tidy up the linen cupboard so it will all fit in now!
That's about all I want to do before heading off to the Hospice Shop after lunch.
ABOVE: this is going to be Dante's bedroom... AND also my 'dressing room', where all my clothes are kept.
ABOVE: Brylee finally gets a bigger bed! And a bigger room too. I think she likes it!
Griffin is back in the bedroom he had originally, now I don't have to walk past his room every time I go to the bathroom or laundry! He simply cannot keep his room tidy for longer than a day!
It's a boy thing I reckon.
Right, I shall get a move on, hang out the next load of washing and do the few jobs on me list before sitting down and doing NOTHING for a while.
So, at 6.30 am I decided it was about to rain on all my fresh washing, so I raced outside and hauled it all in... and now it's all rotating through the drier to air off.
Overnight it had blown a gale and most of me washing was 80% dry! Cool.
Now I only have about 3 loads of linen and general washing to do, and that can all be put on racks under the 'morning patio' roof.
We have a grown up dog who doesn't like 'going' outside when it's wet. 99% sure it's Teddy, just wish I could catch him in the act... cos I would rub his bloody nose in it! Grrrr.
Miss Tallulah can't get outside through the dog door yet, so I have to forgive her when she has an accident.
So much for a relaxing morning. I spent a good deal of time cutting out wood panels to make door guards.
Wet dogs on beds is a no-no, and now they can't get in any bedroom at all. And I can confine them to the laundry too, without having to close the door.
ABOVE: Gotta love me jigsaw! Such a handy power tool.
NOW I'm going to relax... maybe.
Of course I didn't relax! I carried on fluffing around the house, doing odd jobs, tidying up, rotating linen through the dryer... then I went to Hospice.
We had a good afternoon too... and I scored some lovely things:
ABOVE: I couldn't resist this Lemon Melamine tray! I'ts now got lemons on it.
ABOVE: A huge pile of Knitting magazines, with some crochet patterns too. I am going to enjoy looking through them for some things to knit!
ABOVE: A funky fish to add to my fishy/nautical collection on the lounge wall.
Bex has chicken and roast veges in the oven, my mouth is watering just smell it.
Stew bought home Shrimps too... cos I have a hankering for shrimps! And I ain't even the pregnant one!
Poor Bex can't have any either. Bummer... more for me!
End of Day: well dinner was lovely, even better when ya don't have to cook it yourself.
A quiet evening was had by all, except we did let off a few fireworks... Dante thought that was pretty neat.
I needed a quiet evening I must say, it's been a busy few days.
Spring cleaning... almost over I hope.
