ABOVE: Didn't Steve do a great job! I'm really happy with my display stand. Once I've got some coaster sets made, they will sit in front on the table too.
I will have a 2nd trestle table set up for the Trivets. They will just lie on the table on a slight tilt, using some small strips of wood to rest them on.
Now I need to make some Price Signs. I'm not going to put an individual price on everything, just a sign saying 'Large $25, Small $15 and so on.
I am going to make myself a name sign too... but that's a work in progress.
Right, I'm off to get the day started... Miss Muppet to kindy then some serious housework!
9.09 am: And I just ordered the coaster tiles... and they 'should' be here by Wednesday! Which means I might be able to get some sets made and ready by Monday, in time for the craft fair!
Oh I forgot to say the other day. The Council Enforcement officer talked to our neighbours about their roaming chickens being a nuisance, and she told them they would be in breach and would be prosecuted and fined if their chickens kept being a nuisance! His reply? "I will take that on board". Hmmm.
OMG... cleaning! I went and bought a LONG mop... as in, has a long mop head... and I'm cleaning the walls. If you only spot clean, you end up with patchy looking walls.
So, I'm doing all the walls of the hallways and some of the living rooms. Brylee is TRYING to clean the doors and frames. I say 'trying' cos her idea of cleaning and mine are TOTALLY different. Of course.
Teenagers. They try to do the bare minimum. Doesn't work with me sadly for them. Griffin had to vacum the family room like... 3 times! lol
AND I helped him by putting everything up off the floor so it was an easy run. Derrr.
Thankfully, we ARE getting there. I reckon in an hour or so the main cleaning will be done. Then I can actually relax. And so can the kids. Today, they have earned their pocket money.
Well... the rest of our day was quiet.
I cooked pork belly and veges for dinner.
Quiet evening spent watching a new programme, 'Our Girl'. So far, it's so-so.
