I made breakfast, we ate it, I washed up. I went out into the garden because the sun was shining and I spotted a basket at the bottom of the pond. We cleaned the pond out last autumn and one of the baskets must have got dislodged and fallen. During the winter I hadn't seen it but because the sun was shining in the right direction I saw it today. I put my rubber gloves on, got a plastic sheet to kneel on and stretched down. Eric can't do it because of his arthritis but he watched! When I stretched and couldn't stretch any further he said "wait, I'll give it a go" and I used my superhuman strength and stretched a little bit further and got it. A frog hopped back into the pond and the plastic sheet got soaked as I upended the pot, my trousers got soaked. Ugh. I discarded the pot into the bin after putting the contents into the garden waste bin. I then paid another visit to the bathroom to get washed and changed.
That was enough excitement for the day so I decided to prepare my cards for the table top sale. I'd started yesterday but gave it up as a bad job because it seemed never ending. I stuck coloured sticky dots on individual cards and the corresponding coloured dot on to a priced notice. I was so pleased with myself because I got them all finished before lunch time. I made notices, packed crates, baskets and everything is ready to pick up and load the car.
This afternoon, after I'd made lunch, we ate it and I washed up again. There seems to be a pattern to this job. I came upstairs to do some crafting - I made one Easter card purely because I wanted to make a card using the Precious Petals CD from Joanna Sheen that I hadn't used - and I've had it for months. Since then I've cut out various small nestie shapes that I can stamp greetings on to if I need any and I've played dozens of games of Spider Solitaire. I've made so many cards lately that I think I've scared my mojo into hiding. Hope your day has been a happy one. I've enjoyed mine.
