No I'm not talking about the USA elections.
I'm SULKING because we had to
close our caravan for the season.
I'm SMILING because we got this cosy chair from Sarah Moore
off the BBC television programme "Money For Nothing".
You know the one, where she visits council tips and blags things
off people that they are about to chuck out.
She then gets a team of experts to make them into something else.
After that she sells the item on and gives the profit
to the people who were scrapping the item initially.
You will be able to see the episode where she rescues our chair
in series three in the new year
Can you make out that its been reupholstered
using a tweed coat and a wool throw.
The sides of the chair still have the coat pockets.
Its fabulous and looks great in our kitchen.
I was LAUGHING my head off at multi talented Grayson Perry
when we saw him at The Lowry on Tuesday night.
His one man show talking about masculinity is a scream.
You may recognise his name from his other
talent as a renowned ceramicist.
I'm looking DETERMINED as I want to get on
with my winter tweedy scarf.
I'm PESTERING the pants off Philip to do this to the bonnet of my car.
Its had holes drilled into it to form a pattern then
cross stitched in different shades of blue.
Lastly I am NEARLY DOUBLED OVER LAUGHING with
my best buddy Marilyn when we had a day as guinea pigs
at a cookery school trial breadmaking class run by another friend Anna.
I told Anna if she can teach us two anything she can teach anybody.
We certainly put her through her paces and had a wonderful time.
Have a look on my last blog page to see what we made
