Let's clarify a few things....

40 - 50 boxes ALL UP... and probably not that many.  Not that I am going to pack all of them personally!

Let's remember, last time we moved I had 17 boxes of just fabric and sewing room stuff!

I have less fabric now, but I still have a heap of craft stuff.  *smiles*

I am keeping out everything I am using, or might need between now and when we move.

Anything I decided to GRO (get rid of)... will sit out for a while until I'm 100% sure I don't want it.

When I have my next market here in Cambridge (the 11th), I will have a couple of tables of the GRO stuff to try and sell off.

There will be more GRO stuff found over the next couple of months too... as I slowly go through each room/area of the house, garage and yard.

Now, back to today.  First up is my BIG private house clean.  After that I will come home for lunch, then do a laundry shift at the rest home.  So a busy day again.

And that is why TOMORROW, Stew and I are taking off for the day. Just him and me.  Somewhere where we can walk, talk, have a nice lunch together and just RELAX.

I can't wait.


OH SHIT...since I wrote all of the above I've started feeling sick as a dog. Just vomited.... might just have to cancel today's jobs.

3.03 pm:  Hi!  Feeling quite a bit better thanks.
Just got the shits now.  Obviously there was something I ate that didn't agree with me, and the only thing I can think of is a Carob coated fruit and nut bar I had late last night.

It was one I'd never had before, so maybe it was that?

I felt much better after staying in bed till almost 11 am.  Then my feet started twitching, so I got up and pottered around for a little while to see how I felt.  Not too bad (except for the bathroom visits).... so I got the paint out and did the edges in the spare bedroom.

OMG I'm so happy I didn't choose the darker shade of paint I was looking at!  The VERY LIGHT one is drying at least 3-4 shades DARKER than the little sample I got.  It's not too dark though, thankfully.

It took me 2 hours to do the edges, and now I'm done.  Probably do nothing else for the rest of the day.  *smiles*

Well... except cook dinner.  I've got some chicken thighs out to bake in the oven.  Probably put them on top of some rice.  Nice and easy.

Dinner turned out good... and now it's going to be a nice evening just watching TV and keeping warm.  It's horrible outside!  Stormy.


  1. Good you to deserve a nice (year) day alone.

  2. That's a great idea to have some of your GRO stuff at the market! Have a nice day with Stew too.
