Well it is definitely Autumn here as the first few leaves of our big cherry tree in our garden have started to fall. It is also cool in the early morning and in the evening when the sun has gone down, so although we are due for some warm days the heat does not last long!
My dryer is now fixed, the part had to come from Germany, and yes I have another load of washing to do courtesy of DH and the Boys!!!!
I managed to get my Baby quilt finished on Sundy and the binding sewn on so I just now need to hand sew it to the back, wash it, dry it and it will be ready and waiting for when the Baby puts in an appearance. It is due on Youngest’s Birthday although we know that that does not always happen!!!
I have been busy sorting out all the Birthdays I need to buy for between now and December with presents and cards, so that in a few weeks I can concentrate on buying Christmas presents. I find that if I do it this way I don’t forget anything. In past years I have been so busy sorting out Christmas that have then forgotten Birthdays!!! Especially those in December like Youngests!!!
DH is compering an 80’s Retro Event on Saturday evening and I am going too as to make it authentic he is going to use the vinyl singles we used to play in the 80’s!!! They are all scratched and pop but they are authentic!!! It is also a gaming event with genuine 80’s arcade games so it should be good fun. As far as I am concerned the 80’s was the best decade for music since I was alive, the 70’s were good but I preferred the 80’s, and play a lot of that music today on my iPod!!! In fact Youngest is a big fan of the music and has a lot of it on his iPod too and wishes he had been alive in that decade!!!! I turned sixteen in 1980 so I suppose I hit the decade at the right time!
Of course you always look back with rose tinted spectacles but I think it was a great decade. I was at college and then got a job earning real money, I gained a lot of new friends through work and started going out on a Friday or Saturday night. Princess Diana came on the scene and influenced a lot of fashion during the 80’s and as she was only three years older than me I really related to her. The fashions were better after the weirdness of the 70’s! and, of course, I met and subsequently married DH during the 1980’s, so defintely the best decade for me!!!
I will try and get some pictures on Saturday to show you what it looks like!!!!
Today has been busy work wise again but tomorrow I am out in the morning visiting a friend whose Birthday is later in the week. I hope you are having a thrilling Tuesday.
Hugs, Susie xx
