So... I dyed my new white dress last night. I dipped it in the dye, then hung the top half out of the dye, so there was a bit of colour variation through the length. It didn't work that well... I should have spent more time slowly raising it up out of the dye. But it's not bad for a first attempt.
We went out yesterday to look in a furniture shop in town for a new shelving unit for Griffin.
The shop was closed, but we did look in another new furniture shop, and I spied a lovely cushion:
ABOVE: It is so bright and happy looking, I really wanted it, so Stew got it for me. I'm a bit spoilt, considering how many cushions I've bought (and made), over the years!
ABOVE: As you can see, it 'goes' in our lounge beautifully. *smiles*
ABOVE: we had a mini working bee late yesterday afternoon. Trimming the agapanthas. What a shitty job!
ABOVE: You cut them and they weep this horrible, sticky shit! It made me all itchy.
ABOVE: The lone survivour of our fig tree cull is abundant with fruit. I have no idea when they are ripe, but I picked a few...
ABOVE: The green ones are really soft, so I picked them. The birds are starting to peck at them, so they must be ready? Now to try them, somehow.
Brylee and Griffin are home today, it's a 'Teacher Only' day at their college. Keera still has kindy, so it's kinda a normal morning for me.
2.00 pm: And it's been a so-so day up to now. I went into Hamilton to look for a shelf for Griffin's room at a couple of Op Shops, no luck though.
Came home and blobbed watching a couple of tv shows I'd taped, and fell asleep!
Derrr. It's finally stopped raining, and now it's stinkin' hot. I'm feeling blah, utterly blah.
Got Weight Watcher's tonight. Might have a small loss. Seems even though I'm only having ONE bloody meal a day, the weight is not dropping off! That sucks. Can't be bothered even thinking about it right now, just *sigh*.
9.20 pm: Ok I've perked up, sorta.
WW went well. I will tell you my loss tomorrow.
I totally love my WW group now. So relieved I stuck it out.
After WW I came home and had corned beef and potato with cheese sauce for dinner. Ate too much... now have reflux. I'm a bloody idiot. I should have had it for lunch tomorrow.
After dinner, I went to my Patchwork group. That was nice, had a good chat with one of the long time members.
Now I'm home and drinking milk. It's going to be a long night. Dammit.
