I don't think I shared the flying ducks I made last month. I used off cuts of pine and cut them out on the band saw. Then at the weekend I finally got round to hanging them.
I had considered covering them in vintage paper but I think for now I like them in natural wood. If I decide to I can always cover them in the future. Since I learned how to use the tools in my hubby's workshop last year it has meant that I can make things for myself which I would normally have to either get him to make or buy and I love that.
These are my little reminder to myself to start moving and the rest will follow!
It's been a bit hectic around here
We had been waiting to hear whether my In-Laws were coming to visit us, hoping that they would but not really thinking they would. Then last week they booked some last minute flights and arrive on the 13th of this month giving us 14 days to get the house ready.
Eeeek! So we've had two rooms to prepare, an extra bed to source, new seating required and numerous other jobs that need doing for a house of 2 to become a house of 5, alongside other commitments I'd already made before I knew they were going to visit, plus it will be my father in laws 80th birthday while they are here so there have been plans to arrange. My mother is law and I are very different when it comes to the joys of housework; she being the kind of lady who irons everything including undies and me being the kind of lady who irons nothing if I can get away with it. So there is a little bit of pressure to have the house looking better than it looks on a normal clean day!
