Spring Cleaning, But Its Autumn ..

Photobucket
What a gloriously sunny day today. It was certainly a reprieve from the gloomy overcast days we've had recently. So what did I do today while the weather was nice ... I swept the floor, vacuumed, did two loads of washing, finally took some washing off the line that had been stuck there for almost a week due to the rain and picked Brodie up from school because he wasn't allowed to work because he didn't take his chef's shirt with him.

For some reason the hospital kitchen staff said he was out of uniform and wasn't able to work today. I didn't read anywhere in the contract that stated he had to wear his TAFE chef's uniform to his work placement. Anyway they (work) sent him back to school and school said they didn't want him there because he had no classes to attend. So of course I had to go and pick him up. At least the weather was nice and I didn't have to drive up there in the pouring rain. But that cut into my cleaning so I made Brodie help me a bit when he got home. Surprisingly he helped without moaning about it. I'm still in shock.

I had a visitor coming this afternoon which was one of the main reasons I was cleaning/tidying up this morning ( I couldn't let my visitor see how grotty the house was). I got to meet a twitter friend for the first time, @MissMamaBear & her LittleBear. They were coming to town to visit family and popped in for a cuppa. It was nice to be able to put a face to the name.

I even managed to get some knitting done this afternoon. The little hedgehog will be finished by the end of this week hopefully. Of course there will be photos when I am done.

My only problem now is to work out what we are going to eat for dinner. I am sure if I ask the kids for suggestions they will say take-away!

A hedgehog? You are knitting a hedgehog? How cool is that?

Jo-anne "Blossy" said...

Hi Bernie, the hedgehog doesn't look realistic but it is cute. I'll be posting some more pictures when its finished :)

Just wanted to say....the 'putting things on correctly' is exactly why I got out of the stuffed animal crocheting business after I made Wuglyee Bear!!!! LOL

I don't blame you Poetess :D
I still haven't sewn the arms on. I've knitted the hair three times before I got it right *rolls eyes* Sometimes I wonder why I make toys but I am always happy when I have finished them :)
