Craziness continutes

I started out my day sitting on jelly donut. I should have gone back to bed....

We were bringing a carload of "stuff" to the charity shop and my DH thought he would surprise me and picked up donuts when he went to the local shop for a newspaper. He assumed I would see it on the drivers seat before sitting down. Doesn't everyone check the seat for donuts before sitting? If I remember correctly it was on the driving test....

Even with clean-up duty we got to the shop early. I waited while DH went for a walk. The women working at the shop helped me unload the car. DH arrived just as the last box was dropped on the floor...he was carrying a two bags of books and rugby shirts. I don't think he has got this we are moving and need to cut back plan...so I didn't feel bad at all when I added to my little sewing machine collection.

Next was the trip to the vet with Brownie. Her lip was acting up and I needed to check out shipping requirements. This little 7 pound cat managed to stink up my car almost beyond bearing. While I was in with the vet DH cleaned the cage. I dropped DH off at work then the cat managed to come up with more ammunition. I almost drove off the road! When I got home DH had left me a message...maybe I should drive Brownie around everyday to get her used to the cage again. I wish he was joking!Anyway, the photo above is of a firescreen I bought a year or so ago. I caught my DH trying to slip it into the pile to go to the charity shop. You have to keep an eye on him...

I promise to have some quilting photos tomorrow...I plan to start packing them before my DH can get his hands on any of it!!!!

What a beautiful screen. Is that crewel work on the front? Poor kitty, but even poorer you! Love the new little machine.

Oh, I'm so sorry about your bad day and even sorrier at how heartily I laughed at your expense. The jelly doughnut imagery was tooo much! The toy sewing machine was a charming find. How big is your collection?

I guess the question should be asked...were there any donuts left for breakfast that weren't jelly pancakes? Yikes! Love that little sewing machine - that would be a difficult beauty to pass up!

Oh poor you - not such much the doughnut and the cat as your DH! They never get it right.

I love that sewing machine.

Men always come up with good ideas for us women to do don't they?

I love London in small doses, I couldn't live there.
