It is now the last Feet up Friday of the academic year. College closed a couple of weeks ago and the children's last day is today so Charlie and I were out in the garden shortly after 7am picking flowers for the teachers. They did look so beautiful in my vase, that I was quite sad to see them go.
If I don't put my feet up before the school run, I am unlikely to get a chance until September. Last week I did attempt a feet up Friday along with a post but was ironically too busy. With my "to do" list bursting at the seams and my "wish to do" shouting with the louder voice, I think my feet are actually going to have a rather busy day. Fortunately I am unable to do any cleaning because the bathroom is no. 1 on the list and my husband is currently fixing a tap in there, so I'm tackling the sewing room instead. This room is full of distractions and unfinished projects however I intend to try a before and after picture and hope that there is some difference.
It didn't take me long to get distracted and I started working on my knitting needle case which I'm hoping to finish before the next WI knitting and stitching circle meeting. As I sat there stitching I noticed how overflowing with needles, hooks, pens, scissors and brushes my jars were so further distracted, I headed of to the charity shop to get a beautiful new jar for my accouterments and the bargain price of £1.
The house is still a complete mess but as the summer holidays are about to begin, I am just going to have to get used to it. I have finished my knitting needle case though and I am very happy with it.
