… Love the life you live!
It is Monday morning. I sit at my kitchen table. The house is tidy but the table is a mess. My sewing machine is out and the table is strewn with pins, measuring tape, buttons, spools of thread. It is a happy chaos.
The kitchen door is open and the light streams in through the glass. There is a blue sky outside, a result not to be sniffed at, given the grey tendencies of the weather these past few days, or weeks. Here in London, the sunshine is a rarity and worshiped like a god.
I sip the last few mouthfuls of my now cold tea. I listen to a plane fly overhead, and I wonder where it has come from. I scratch my head and purse my lips a little. The day is upon me and I must decide my strategy.
Well this week has completely flown by and I cannot believe it’s Friday once again. I plan to post more on the weekend, but until then I thought I would pop by for an update.
The chairs were mine (ours)! Oh yes they were. The sellers replied fairly promptly – and when I went to pick the chairs up from their flat, they were the sweetest, loveliest people! They served me peppermint tea, and apologised for the faint smell of furniture polish – they had just been trying to give the chairs some lovin’ before I arrived. No need to apologise for that, I explained. As we don’t really own much furniture in London, we certainly don’t own any furniture polish, so they did us a massive favour there.
So yes, we were able to tuck the pretty chairs away into appropriate niches and nooks and I feel that they have really added to our abode. Next stop, (dainty) cushions!
In fact, I think it is the perfect reason to give my relatively new sewing machine a spin. I am not past my first project yet, which is a plastic bag holder for the kitchen. Yes, I know, that doesn’t sound very romantic at all, but I thought it was a start, and actually we really do need one, so there you go. Project number two though will need to be a cushion, or several cushions. Then perhaps I will be ready to move onto clothes.
But for now, I must prepare to enter the real world again, and get ready for work!
I will leave you with a new music discovery, The Civil Wars. They are gorgeous, I highly recommend stalking them on youTube if you have some spare time today.
