    I bet you’ll have a ball on the day even if you can’t do it, just laughing! 

    You’ve done loads in the house, sounds like it is coming on greatly. X
    We will definitely have a laugh 😀 The House is looking really good, I keep meaning to take some photos but just haven't got round to it yet 😊

    Just having my lunch break then I'm off into the loft to do an unplanned for job. I have my deckchairs in the hall and I think it might be time now to put them away 😫😫the weather today is cold grey and windy and I don't think we are going to get warm enough weather now to warrant  sitting in the garden. The flooring guys also left me a half full pack of laminate and some spare carpet so I'm putting that up there as well, I wanted to keep the carpet in case any of it gets damaged on the stairs because I could use it to replace a damaged tread or two,I'm also thinking if I buy another pack of laminate at some point I could have it in the spare room which is only a box room so wouldn't need much. I reckon I could do that myself with the help of YouTube 😀

    Another job I have for today is to clean out the 🐓🐓run and top up their supplies. I'm worming them today which involves mixing a powder into 2kgs of their food then keeping them locked in the run for 7 days until they have eaten it all. They are not allowed any other food during this time so can't come out in the garden or have any treats, they are going to hate it but it needs doing. One of them has some weird symptoms that could be caused by a parasite so I'm hoping this will get rid of whatever is wrong with her, the vets gave me antibiotics but they haven't made any difference

    Right I had better crack on 😊

    Don’t be too hasty putting your deckchairs away, apparently it’s going to warm up next week. Having said that, still waiting for that predicted heatwave that never materialised 😐

    Stashers anonymous: my name is Cherryfudge and I have a stash of yarn and UFOs! Studying yarn websites made me realise I am walking right into the trap set out for me, it's designed to appeal to the buyer though some of it is actually fabulous when made into something.

    I do have two jumpers and various embroideries on the go but at least the jumpers are making progress.

    Same here with the yarn stash but I AM knitting it up, as have promised some items to a charity stall next month.

    The 🐓🐓are not happy today because they can see I'm at home and don't know why they can't come out in the garden, I heard some angry muttering earlier so I presume they were complaining about me 😀
    The new craft shop is out on an industrial estate so I would need to make a real effort to get there, it's enough to put off the visit at the moment 😀
