Sr P who took early retirement when the family business closed down sees to the house and does the cooking when I'm working. We've always shared the household chores as I have always worked too but now Sr P is at home full-time and I work full-time so he deals with the household.
OK I digress...returning to my grumbling......
.......where does it say in a house husband manual that corners should not be cleaned and while I'm at it under the settee, behind and under the furniture, and the beds .........yes under the beds..... for goodness sake!!!! I could plant a veg patch with the mass of fluff I found under the beds!!
Yes......I am spring cleaning!
There are parts of my spring cleaning I enjoy ..... I put on some good music and get to it. What was it this morning ..... ah yes I cleaned my house accompanied by Celine Dion,Michael Bolton,Adele and the Beatles...... it so helps having some music to sing to as I get on with the chores.
However I do not enjoy piles of ingrain dirt in blinking obvious places which have to be cleaned more often than once a year. Tch!
In all fairness ( beginning to feel a little guilty now about grumbling) having been a workaholic and now forced to be a house husband is not his idea of fun.....he hates it . However he does his best and I must say he is a super frugal shopper he knows where all the bargains are. Bless him!
I have just finished a couple of makes, a couple of little gifts other than this here ,that I showed you in a previous post, for my new niece GR .....I'll be sending them off to the UK tomorrow.
Baby's first Easter Bunny
My first attempt at fabric applique and machine sewing it. I followed the very easy to follow video tutorial here. I sewed the ear ones on by hand but the others I did on the sewing machine but they didn't come out too tidy at all and in fact puckered in some places. I'm thinking its best to hand stitch applique to crochet .
and I also made GR an Easter Beanie which I call the Fairy Garden Beanie.....no pattern,my own creation.
Do you see my new model? Pooh Bear wasn't too keen on modelling a girlies hat so my grand-daughter has lent me one of her old dolls
Lots of these processions are going on here over the next few days. Unfortunately in Andalusia where they have some very impressive processions the rain is causing havoc and many have been cancelled.
HAPPY EASTER HOLIDAYS TO YOU ALL
