Because it's chilly out there. I've caved in and put the heating on. The joys of a warm bathroom cannot be underestimated.
And the autumn rearranging/nesting goes on: I dug out some cushion covers I made a couple of years ago from some tweedy remnants bought from an interiors shop.
They've got vintage buttons sewn on too. I'm glad I kept hold of these (they were folded up alongside fabric scraps and embroidery silks). Stock rotation. And stock retention: we were all set to donate our 1960s sideboard to charity as there was no room for it after making a little desk area under the stairs.
But at the eleventh hour we realised we couldn't let it go. So it's back in its rightful place. I now work (awkwardly) from it. I'll cope.
Speaking of work, I love volunteering at the charity shop. Organising, rearranging, doing the window and shelf displays... I'm completely in my element. Next project: planning an autumnal window. Two actually. Pinterest, here I come!
I also took down some summery prints from the living room and drew some super-quick designs using charcoal. They look a bit childish I suppose but I like the simplicity of them.
I haven't drawn with charcoal for years. It was fun but very smudgy. I did some pictures for the bedroom too (but haven't photographed them yet). Total time taken: an hour, tops. Total cost: free. Lovely!
Chalk this time instead of charcoal. Simple food for this week's menu. The 'meals out' bit refers to a few family birthday outings: curry on Friday evening (just Jay and me - we enjoyed it but were pleased to collect Joe again afterwards) and a family lunch yesterday. Three courses. Sunday afternoon drowsiness ensued...
Hope you had a lovely weekend :)
