Hello! I don't know if it's due to the weather cooling slightly but I suddenly felt like making a start on having a good old sort out. Many bags have been filled with assorted stuff for the charity shop and I got ruthless with all the crafty bits and bobs that I know I'll never use. Blankets and linens have been aired and tidied. You have to be in the right mood for this, I find, but it is very satisfying.
I unearthed this bag of baby clothes, but can't bear to part with them. All the other stuff went long ago, but these bring back lovely memories. I came close to cutting some of the dresses up to make a quilt a few years ago, but changed my mind. After a wash to freshen them up I've put them away for safe keeping again!
The kitchen table is starting to disappear under boxes and bags of youngest daughter's stuff as she prepares to go back to Uni next week. She's had M.E for a few years and reluctantly decided to take last year out and stay at home. She's itching to get back after being stuck here with only us wrinklys to talk to!
The garden's putting on a final show of colour as everything starts to go to seed and fade away.
The apple and plum trees are laden with ripening fruit and I'm looking forward to lots of crumbles.
I hope everyone received their poppy seeds last week. Let me know if they haven't arrived. Maryvonne, can you let me know your address if you read this thank you.
Hope you have a good long weekend
