At the weekend I picked up an old metal mop bucket, which had seen better days, but I liked the colour and thought I could put it to good use by planting a cheery Margarita plant in it. My original plan was to plant some strawberries in it, but mop bucket and food didn't sit too comfortably with me!
I had no plans either to make a blind, but you know when you get a sudden urge.....and my blind was it. I had all the supplies including 2 rings to thread the ribbon through - it's not often a plan comes together when you don't have to trot to the shops to pick up what you need.
Hubby thinks it's completely useless (from a functional point of view) as it's a faff rolling it up and doing the bows before it goes wonky - but it looks good!
There's lots of stuff I have to do this week, but it's also SAT's week for the Year 6's so I feel it may not be that productive. Yesterday went well but I feel as the week goes on, we may well have to walk on egg shells. This is just a warm up I guess, as tests and exams next year will become the norm, which won't be good for my stress levels, never mind Toby's! I'm glad I have one chilled out son though.
Right, onwards and upwards.
