Today I have decided to stay home. Lugging my sewing machine and paraphernalia in and out of me car/patchwork class just ain't gunna happen. My back is still sore, and gets worse as the day progresses. So, better to just stay home and try not to overdo it.
Plus I'm really tired. Probably from being in pain? And sitting on me bum too long! That is hard on me back too weirdly enough.
So I'm not too sure what I shall do with myself today.
Maybe just sew at home for a little while ... or do a few odd jobs... maybe wash that rug in hot water.
Ha ha! Forgot the 'ONWARD'!
But anyway... I've been slowly mucking around all morning, doing a little bit of housework, and just now I got that rug in the tub:
I doubt I will be strong enough to haul it out of there actually, it's really heavy on it's own, without being sopping wet.
I think the guys will have to do it when they get home.
It's now lunchtime, so I'm going to stir that rug a bit more, then have some lunch.
Lunch done. Stirred the rug some more,then decided to drain the dirty water and re-fill and rinse the rug.
ABOVE: the water coming from the rug. GROSS! Makes me want to NEVER lie on a fluffy wool rug again!
Wonder how many rinses it will take before the water runs clear?
Grrrr. Phone call from the kid's school Deputy Principal. There was an 'incident' of bullying at school today... and my immediate thought was that it was Brylee again. BUT NO!
It involved Griffin.
He was bullied twice today. Once in PE where he was pushed over and got grazes on his arm and knee, then again at lunchtime where he was grabbed around the neck!
Upshot is the boy involved and his parents will be meeting with the school on Monday to discuss the incident and any repercussions.
There were a couple of other boys indirectly involved too... so I am sure I've not heard the last of this.
No point thinking it's just the school he's at that is the problem. No matter where you go you are going to encounter bullies. Hell... we have one in our own house! lol
Though, SHE has behaved all year so far. Fingers crossed she has changed for the better and stays a nice girl.
PETA: don't worry about my back Chick. I have no intention of trying to pick that rug up myself. Stew can do it once it's drained of as much water as I can get out of it.
End of Day: well a quiet evening. Stew downstairs watching sport. Me in the lounge watching Coro Street etc. Other family in the Family room playing XBox etc. All good then!
