Later this month my son and dil and Oz along with my daughter are all off to France for three weeks. Peace you might think - not a chance Mum & Dad are being left in charge of Jules.
This is Jules and this weekend we had her to stay for a couple of nights - a sort of trial run as she has never stayed overnight with us before. She came Friday and we took her for a good long walk before bedtime. Saturday we were up early and following breakfast we went for another long walk. Home, some shopping and some lunch and then off for another long walk. Home tea and another long walk. Today and a little longer in bed (well it is Sunday) and a more leasurely breakfast and then off out - yes you guessed a long long walk - finally home again for a quick cuppa, pack her things up, take her home and collect Oz. Its years since I last did that much walking - probably since Jules did that much walking too - i think she was relieved to go home for a rest lol. I have come to the conclusion that when she comes for three weeks we will all be a stone lighter at the end of it. She looks a real old lady but she is only about four years old. The grey face is what does it but she has been like that since they got her when the RSPCA thought she was about 10 months old. She is the loveliest nature you could wish for and though not quite as obedient for us as she is for her master she is still reasonably well behaved and polite.
I have been stitching on ISD this week, with not a lot of stitching time it seems better to just stick to one thing at a time at the moment.
I got my DHs initials done and finished the long motif that runs across the centre at the top. I am quite pleased with the progress this time round.
Not sure what to do next. I have Gigi to stitch and there are two parts this month but neither is very big. I also have to finish stitching this months section of EMS Rose. And there is also The Quiltmaker which is the next thing in my rota. I also have several small things to stitch, two for charity and two for gifts but I really do not feel in the mood for stitching little fiddley bits at the moment. Will just have to see how the mood takes me when I next get to the stage of having five minutes to stitch - which I am hoping might be tomorrow evening.
Hope you have all had a wonderful weekend. I am slowly trying to keep up with blogs and to a degree managing this by leaving one big reply which covers several posts. Please forgive me if I have not got to you but I will get there eventually - promise.
Thank you for continuing to visit and leave such lovely comments, they really keep me going.
