Friday night........

Wow....I blinked and it's Friday night already! Friday nights are definitely my favourite night of the week.......heater cranked up.....quilt over the knees (it's ok...I'm a granny...it's allowed)...footy on TV....dinner and dishes done....would love a cuppa but neither Rose or I can be bothered!! Here she is in her preferred spot....doing what she does best....sleep!



I must admit to having a few late nights this week.....have been working on my red work stitchery and reading - The Hunger Games - once I had started I couldn't put it down until it was finished ....I am pretty sure the next two books will keep me up late for a few more nights! Have the girls coming over for stitching tomorrow....will make a pot of potato and bacon soup for lunch...it's definitely soup weather! Also on the agenda for this weekend is a bit of a tidy up in the sewing room.....Time I took stock of the projects I have on the go and start working on getting some of them finished....sounds like a plan to me! Speaking of time......this is my kitchen clock.....



I have had this clock for a few years but a couple of weeks ago it started not doing the job it's designed to do.....keep time! I don't think there is anything quite as useless as a clock that doesn't keep time.....so it had to go.....got it down off the wall and threw it on the bench to take out to the bin with the rubbish.......I set it to the right time (not sure why since I had given it several chances before this!) and went on doing something else.....came back a few hours later.....and lo!! Still the correct time......so it's back on the wall and hasn't missed a beat since......must have scared it!! 'cause I can be scary LOL

I really do need to make that cuppa now!

'til next time........Lorraine

The week sure has gone fast, we went and saw The Hunger Games movie and enjoyed that, I want to read the books too but I think I'll wait a while until I've finished a couple of things.

Hope you have a great weekend! I have had late nights this week too. Haven't been doing anything though! Just not sleeping!

A fun and unusual clock!

That's funny about the clock! I read all three books of the Hunger Games and I couldn't put them down either!

Can you come over and scare my clock into submission. It’s double sided and I get so fed up with NIETHER side showing the right time.

Thursday or Friday nights are my favourite time of the week (depending on whether Im working Friday) I love the wonderful thought of having 2 or 3 days stretched out before you when you dont have to go to work and can have “ME” time.
