It Was Closed
I thought that "early closing" was dead and buried, but no it is alive and kicking in South Lincs.
I have to go into Kings Lynn on Friday so will buy them there.
We have the most comfy 4 seater sofa in the world, it is getting on a bit but is sturdy and sound. It has loose covers that have been washed dozens of times and of course they have faded. The arm cushions have acquired the odd pen mark and a worn place or 3. The back cushions bow nicely in the middle because the dogs scramble up and lie on them, they like to watch the world go by through the windows.
To have a set of covers and new back cushions made is almost the cost of a new sofa.The main body cover is fine, just faded .
My aim is to source material that I like at a price that I like to cover the seat and arm cushions. I will dye the main cover to coordinate. Then I am thinking of buying large scatter cushions and making covers for them to replace the 2 large squished back cushions. These covers would be a mixture of patterned and plain.
This will be a deal of work and the garden will take precedence for a while, but I have all these extra days off.
My lovely Manager has arranged my rota to my wishes so that I work Wednesday and Thursday, have Friday off, work Saturday to Tuesday and then have SEVEN days off.
I will be on holiday every other week
This was my dinner last night, roasted spiced chickpeas and mushrooms with rice , I had a salad with it and it was delish.
The other two had this
Beef in Ale Casserole from the freezer with rice, Michael had some of the chickpea and mushroom as well.
Tonight it is something fishy with salad, we have been busy today so I will open a tin of Sardines for Michael, he loves them, and I will probably have Tuna, or maybe not, there is some of the chickpea mix left and it is just as good cold as hot.
That's it for now. TTFN Pam
