I delivered Fran to the train station yesterday morning and she arrived home safely a few hours later. On Saturday as well as making the little pouches and her birthday cushion I made 2 covers for her body pillow ( 60" long) and a fabric bowl to match the pouch that she claimed.
At some point I knocked the back of my left hand and now it is painful and stiff, I can use it but can not grip anything. I decided that yesterday I would do as little as possible to rest it, I snuggled down on the sofa with Ben, after his walk, and managed to doze off twice.
It was lovely but the effect was that I could not sleep last night, I have been up since stoopid o'clock and am now feeling sleepy. DUH.
Not to worry, if I need a nap then I shall have one.
The upside is that the beds are changed and the linen is washed, the ironing is done and the house has been put to rights.
Peter is out of strictly, I used to dance as a teenager but am no expert. I thought that one of the lifts in the other couples dance off routine was very clumsy and quite expected them to go. I read some of the publicity over Anton allegedly mouthing criticism at Peter's first attempt at the American Smooth. I saw the incident and I could not make out what he was saying, it matters not what he said He should have kept it closed.
I am looking forward to next week, they are all dancing wonderfully and the standard is very high, I have no favourite and no glimmer of who may be the winner.
I have stuffed myself over the weekend and there is a batch of minestrone soup in the slow cooker. That will be lunches this week, dinners will be out of the freezer so hopefully a low spend week will happen.
Now I am off to get Ben walked and fed, then a little gentle sewing is in order.
