And another good day...except for the weather which has been truly absymal. Lashing rain and high winds and I don't think it ever managed to really get light...
We were out again so I'm beginning to suffer from tiredness now...I needn't have gone today but the Hospice shop was beckoning, so while Himself paid the car tax I found a couple of brightly coloured duvet covers...doubles as well which means twice the amount of fabric. They're so cheap...and are made from cotton, so pleasant to handle and to sew. Two duvets and three good as new thrillers cost me the princely sum of €8...
After we'd come home I tided my shed up...again. Don't mind it being messy actually but it's handy to be able to find the scissors without having to move everything 'cos they're lurking somewhere unseen. And I'd put a homemade bird pudding on the bird table so I kept an eye out for marauding Jackdaws...the little birds are no match for them and they will gobble great beakfuls.
Then I watched YouTube videos on how to insert zips and stitch round curves without ending up all over the place. There is so much information about practically anything...some are better than others, but it's much easier to understand while actually seeing how it's done than trying to read about it. I find written instructions...even if they are accompanied by diagrams, a bit difficult to follow.
The wind has died down again and the rain has finally stopped but we still have a weather warning in force...this is a new idea and hasn't been in operation for long. It isn't much use in the rural areas where people need to drive down tree lined boreens and the like...it's rather like the signs we have along some roads of leaping deer...a deer jumping out in front of your car will still frighten you half witless even if there is a sign up...but the best signs we used to see in England were the 'Beware low-flying aircraft'...never was sure how you'd avoid a Hercules should you happen upon one overhead...
