Well this morning I was enjoying a quiet lady's morning. The boys are away tramping. I woke up at 8.15am and while breakfast was baking I pinned out a quilt, then I took my gorgeous croissants and coffee back to bed and read the latest issue of The Simple Things.

At 10.30 I thought "righto" get going for the day. I went to have a shower and the bottom of the shower had a bit coming off that jams the shower door. Now this is a common occurance and about every 4 months I give it a bang to secure it back on and we are right as rain. This is NOT a hard bang - I used a the bottom of my coffee cup. And the shower door disintegrated on top of me. Tiny tiny bits of glass everywhere. All over the bath, handbasin, shower, the floor was covered in shards of glass. Not to forget all through my hair, my nighty and down my back.

So I clean up the glass but all the surfaces in the bathroom had what looked like glass dust. Very gritty. It was really hard to get rid of. The top of the door fell onto the floor and looks like it bounced as I have three holes in the vinyl. Ah well, here goes a bathroom redo.

An hour later I finally had my shower and then had to go shopping for a shower curtain temporarily. Took Morris for a walk and only now at 4.45pm I am finally getting to sew again!!

  5. Visiting you back from Sew Darn Crafty, I couldn't answer you to your comment on my refashioned skirt that Slims because you look like a "noreply blogger". It would be really helpful if you fix it, so we can answer to your comments ;)
    If you don't know how to do that, please ask me, I'll be glad to help you!!!
    PS: I love your quilt, but Morris... rocks ;)

    1. Thanks for that. There is a long story behind the no reply blogger - my husband and I both run blogs off the same system and all replies would go to his email address so they would not be seen by me. It is just one of the things that I have to live with. Sorry if it frustrated you.

  6. I'm reading your posts and thinking...when were these posted and then it dawns on me....we live on opposite end of this giant orb. Haha!! I feel so silly sometimes. I was noticing your canning and think that you are using store bought jars and lids. I had no idea you could can in those. Is there a trick or tip? And now I'm going to wish I didn't deposit all those salsa jars of mine in the recycling. ;)

    1. Hi Diane, thanks for visiting. I always use recycled jars. As long as the seal is good. So no dents in the side of the lid. They will reseal continually and cost you nothing!!
