Another enjoyable evening on Blackbird Designs Their Song was had last night :) I was desperately in need of a relaxing evening after a rather stressful day ( more about that in brief in a bit!) so this helped a bit.
Tonight has become one of my favourite nights of the week as it's my JA SAL night with Barb. I think we may both have a finish this evening and then we are going to do a small one, then start the Jane Austen Sampler Stocking on August Bank Holiday so I am really looking forward to that!
On Saturday I received an RAK from Hazel. I had sent her a chart that she had on her wish list and she had been looking at mine and had this lovely from it, which she has stitched. I have been wanting this for quite some time as I want to stitch it in memory of my Mum ( her name was Mary) so thank you so much Hazel xx
DH is back at work today and I am missing him. We did spend a long time not getting on too well in the last year or so but these past couple of months have been so much better and we are both much happier. I don't know if it was me or him or both of us but I'm glad we are back on track and he says he's got his old Sally back :) I just wish that we'd have better luck in other things too!
Yesterday, as I said in my previous post, Jess should have been moving her stuff into her student house. Well to cut a very long story short there had been a mix up with the contract. The company's paperwork said it started 22nd August, Jess and her friends paperwork said 15th and the first payment went out of their accounts last week. They were given the all clear to move in but when we arrived yesterday the house wasn't ready! My heart sank when I saw it as it hadn't been cleaned, the door didn't even lock, there were doors off the kitchen units, the beds were the ones the previous tenants had slept in and were stained and dirty. Everywhere we looked there was something. It was just dirty and unsafe. We have been assured it will be ready for next Sunday and they did start removing old beds and appliances when were talking outside to other parents. I have spoken to the lettings manager today and told her how unhappy we are and she has taken full responsibility for the mix-up and has apologised but that doesn't help the fact that a mistake was made and it was very stressful for all of us. I guess they won't be going to the same company next time!
Finally Abi wanted to dye my hair! I used to dye it regularly years ago but she decided it might make me feel better about myself ( bless her xx) so last week when we went to Meadowhall in Sheffield we snuck into Superdrug and chose a semi-permanent colour and this morning she set about dying it for me and this is the result. It hasn't quite covered all my greys ( I do have a few) but I love it and I love how she's styled it. I can't get it to go like this!
Time I was off to sort some veg and stuff for tea. Thanks for reading and for all your wonderful comments. They mean so much. Will be back tomorrow to catch up on your blogs :)
