Why is it that,
you only realise that there is one little sheet of loo paper on the holder when your bladder is screaming and you are just about to sit.
the packet of biscuits that has been sealed with knife resistant plastic bursts open the minute you turn away from the work top and the contents shower gracefully onto the floor, and into the dog who's extra sensory perception has brought him there at the optimum second.
the bag of sugar will not open at the top, even after breaking your longest finger nail, but leaks impressively from the bottom. All over the kitchen.
the milk always runs out before the shops are open.
the toaster only burns the last slice in the house, and it was yours.
the last ball of yarn, in the colour that you need, runs out 10 stitches away from the end of the bind off.
when you eventually find the glue, someone has left the cap off.
if you run to answer the phone, it is a wrong number.
if you leave it to ring on it is not only for you but is time sensitive.
you have a power failure in the middle of a recording program that has reached it's last day on catch up and is then gone forever.
bleach only splashes on dark coloured clothing.
over browning turns onions sweet and caramelised but renders garlic too disgusting for words.
you use self raising flour, by mistake, for the Yorkshire Pudding when the mother in law has come for dinner.
you are sewing up a storm, 2 skirts almost ready for the zip insertion when you suddenly notice that one seam in the lining is the wrong way round.
Yep, that last one was me earlier. luckily I spotted it before it had come to the point of hair pulling and rending of clothes. A few moments with the trusty stitch ripper, a quick swoosh of steam from the iron and a swipe through the sewing machine and all was put to rights.
A few weeks ago I washed several pieces of fabric from the stash, just like the yarn it is considerable. During the past week I have made 3 pairs of PJ bottoms, they just need hemming, and yesterday I cut out 2 Hollyburn skirts and the linings. This pattern does not have linings but it saves faffing with petticoats and makes the fabric hang so much better.
They are well on the way and will be finished sometime this week. I have the new knit and natter tomorrow, Llandeilo on Tuesday, then there is a crafting session in the local library on Wednesday. Add to that the things that I want to do in the garden and I have a busy week full of fun in front of me.
Dinner tonight was amazing if I say so myself, I cooked a mixture of rice and quinoa and stirred roasted veg through it. The veg had been cooked with lots of fresh herbs and the flavour was great. That on it's own was delicious but I also cooked some pulled pork and the mixture of texture and flavour were superb.
I did manage to enjoy a fruit tart with a splosh of cream for pudding and as soon as there is room I will make a cuppa.
Now I am off to pick up my knitting and watch a bit of telly.
Oh yes, the title, My mother always said that if you drop toast and jam it always lands jam side down,and all of my list come under that umbrella.
