Yesterday afternoon I decided to make a few more Soup Bowl Cosys for market today.

My goal was 4-5.  But I managed to make NINE!  Super happy about that.  (bet I don't sell any today now lol)

ABOVE:  My latest cosy's.  I really enjoy making them.

Also yesterday, I asked Stew to do a little job for me.
We have a long, thin window by the front door.  When we are sitting in our chairs in the family room, if someone comes to the front door, they can see directly into the family room and see us.
I don't like that at all.

So I asked Stew to get something to cover/tint the window so it would obscure us, but still let in the light.

He did it!

ABOVE: He got frosted contact and put it on... BOOM!  Problem solved.  Such a simple fix too.
Now I want it on a window in our bedroom too... one that faces our immediate neighbour's driveways. 

Once that's done I can get dressed even if the curtain is open.  Right now I leave the curtain closed all the time cos there is no privacy in our bedroom if it's open.

It has been so nice having a few days off work  I must say!  I get why people don't like Mondays now... though I'm lucky, cos I STILL get Mondays off.
Clever planning that was eh?   I also get Wednesday off this week too.  (Week 2 of my roster)

Right, it's Market day here... and we are heading off in half an hour.  Wish me luck... I'm going to need it!
It's friggin cold, and I doubt that many people will be out and about today.


 ABOVE: Wow! So lucky with the weather!   Yes.. we woke to a frost... but while its FREEZING out here, it's not raining or blowing a gale! 

No punters yet...

ABOVE: I'm ready for them though.

ABOVE: Pretty Rolls Royce for company today.

It's not looking to be a profitable day sadly. I might even go home in the red once I pay for my stall!

And also the first time I have NOT MADE A SALE at a market!  Not one thing.
And it was FREEZING... utterly freezing.  I had three layers on, UGG boots, gloves, scarf, hat, two hot water bottles and a blanket, and I was still cold.

Next month I am working on that sunday, so am not going to be doing it.  I had thought of setting up and leaving Stew to run it, but no.  We shall miss it next month for sure.

So now.. of course I am wrapped up in my electric throw trying to warm up again.  My legs are tingling... slowly thawing out!  *smiles*

Waiting for some lunch... hint hint Stew!
Stew just asked me what I wanted, and I said 'Something HOT'... AND HE SAID ... ME!!

Yeah nah... want FOOD not hanky panky.

ANON: He got it from Mitre 10, and the rolls were $20 for the narrower one, and $33 for the wider one. You can buy ones that had patterns/flowers etc on them for slightly more, but we just wanted a plain frosted look.

Well it's 10.43 pm and it's been a fantastic afternoon and evening.  Did NOTHING.  Relaxed.  Stew cooked Shephard's pie for dinner.  It was delicious.

Now... bedtime.  And I get to sleep in tomorrow!  Yusssss!


  1. Your booth looks great. It is no longer overpowered the the obnoxious signs in the window. Your table runners took care of that! Cute basket of owls!

    Your stall looks great...we have a clear window film on our kitchen window as we have the same problem our neighbours are very close...but at night you do need to close the curtains as it can be seen into then...we have a lovely clear view out..I think that would be better for your bedroom as you can still see outside in the day as we close our curtains at night anyway...


  3. Your stall looks fantastic. Fingers crossed that more people come out and about shopping once it warms up a little.
