                       D's Design 

Good Afternoon, Have been having a busy day catching up after all our gallivanting this week.  We had someone coming to measure for new vertical blinds for the big window this morning arrived early so unusual nowadays but was good as we had other thing waiting. After a quick coffee  Stuart had a appointment for a badly needed haircut he has curly hair so it had all gone wavy and curly at the back but it has been so cold who wants to get a haircut. I went in the car and had a wee walk round the village while Stu got shorn. We then went to our local recycling and did the glass box boy was that full. Back home and the last load of washing was ready for going out.  When I got up this morning there was not a cloud in the sky so I did all the bedclothes on our bed so by now they should all be dry.  We have just come back from our walk it looks lovely but it is still cold and it is blowing a gale out there so for once we did not enjoy it at all I have a sore leg (old age I think) and Stuart had a pain in his chest with the wind I hope, he says it going away now so I will keep my fingers crossed that's the end of it. Just rambling a bit as I have nothing much news worthy to tell you today. Not expecting any visitors over Easter as Richard Lisa and Ellen are on their summer holidays in Majorca at the moment and still have another week.  They are not keen on it hot so this time of year suits them fine as you can do more. Well am off to try to plant some Dahlia seeds to bring on on the windowsill.  One thing more about my new windows sorry to go on but the frame on my kitchen window is about 2 inches less at the bottom and I can now see most of the garden out the back as I am working away before I could only see the top end as I am on just over 5 feet tall  did not think of this so it has been a bonus for me. Bye for now hope you are having a lovely day.  Love

Sara made this on for me.

Tee hee, Stuarts hair sounds just like Robbies!! When he was younger (in his youth) his nickname was hairbear cos his hair was so unruly and curly,,,,he has been barred from a couple of barbers in Corby cos his hair blunted their razors, lol!!

So glad about everything with the Windows...I found the vertical blinds expensive,
but had them fitted to the Bay window, and theylook very smart.
Hope you and Stuart are both feeling better this evening.
Sunny today...but blowing a Gale!

Hi Joan,  I had to smile when you said about Stuarts curly hair.  I cut Jim`s hair as he doesn`t have that much left now but when it does grow it goes curly.  I can just remember the days when he was blonde and curly.  Now I suppose he`s grateful for what he has!  Thanks for your comment on my journal today.  I have that problem from time to time with losing alerts.  I`ve done another entry if you`re interested. :o)

I am just under five foot five or was but I am shrinking as well!  Getting more like five feet across lolol
Glad the blinds are getting done.  Good luck with the Dahlia seeds, nice flowers.  I have not planted any seeds this year, must be getting old lol

Another busy day but at least you managed to get some time out of the house what with all the horrible weather you've been having lately :-)  Hope it continues to be nice for you
