Home & Family TO BE FIXED

All is quiet on the homefront …

Probably because I’ve spent much of the last 48 hours sleeping my head off!  I actually fell asleep in an exhausted heap on Friday night and slept solidly for 13 hours!!  Worried that I was wasting half the day when I should be up packing things, I set my alarm clock for 8.30am this morning … but I woke up twice and went back to sleep each time, and ended up sleeping for nearly 11 hours yet again … crikey!!  As Mum said, my body obviously needed it, as it’s very unusual for me to do that!  I actually woke up really bunged up, but I think it’s partly to do with the fact that it’s like an icebox in my flat at the moment.  Mum thought I was winding her up when I told her how cold it was before she flew over … last night, though, she was bundled up in her clothes, with her dressing gown on, and then put some leggings on up over her knees – it was so funny!  My hands are like blocks of ice, and I’m very tempted to walk around with gloves on, if I didn’t need them free for packing 😉  It would be so wonderful to be able to close that darned lounge window!!

No stitching has been done over the last couple of days.  I did some more on Bordeaux a couple of nights ago, and finished all the gold stitches on band 6 … I probably won’t get much chance to stitch now until I move out, but I’ll hold out showing a progress piccie until the official SAL night this week (which might be the final progress piccie for a while).

Mum and I spent an hour this afternoon choosing photos for the upcoming three months of the Photo Scavenger Hunt – and my posts are all loaded up for that whole period seeing as I won’t have access to my computer or photo files … so if you see me posting regularly over the next couple of months, it’s not that I’m physically sitting at the PC, just that I’m being super-organised with trivial stuff 😉

Talking of which, time to go back to my packing again – I’m going through my XS charts etc and packing all my ringbinders into archive boxes and emptying the bookcases … the perfect job while catching up on TV viewing and clearing all those videos that have been piling up for ages. 

I should get loads of stitching done while I’m housesitting as I’ll have no PC, and they have Foxtel … how awful! At least it means I’ll have plenty of viewing to keep me busy, seeing as my DVD’s will all be in storage (although I have downloaded some audiobooks to my iPod as well) 😉

Rightio, no more yapping … time to move into the refrigerator lounge and do a bit more …

  1. So sorry your house is freezing…that’s terrible to be cold. I must say…I’m glad your getting out of there! I’m sure your Mum is too! Good luck organizing and packing that in and of itself is quite a job.

  2. Hi Anne. That chart you are looking for, email me with an address to send it to you, huh? My email is on my blog site if it doesn’t show up here.

  3. Hi Anne, just catching up with all your news, I haven’t had a chance to stop by in wee while. I hope your packing goes well, and what a giggle, I could just picture your Mum all dressed up, trying to keep warm. Take care of yourself over the next few weeks, and get lots of sleep, as you’re going to need it 🙂 Take care xxx

  4. I don’t envy you, Anne! Best of luck with the cold, the computer deprivation, the packing, and the lack of stitching!

  5. Ugh. I hate being cold. I’m sitting here in my icebox of a cubicle right now, so I can sympathize. At least you’ll be away from it soon and into a place with proper foundations and heat! I think you are going to feel much better and things are going to start going your way once you get away from your apartment. Just make sure we know how to get in touch with you if we want/need to, okay? 🙂

  6. Glad you had such a good sleep. Sounds like things have picked up for you. Glad to hear. Good luck with the rest of your packing.

  7. Anne, I can’t wait till you’re out of that apartment! It’s a terrible process to pack up, but once things sort themselves out and you’re settled again somewhere, you’ll be glad – and we’ll all sleep better knowing our dear Anne is warm and safe!
