We are in the process of applying for Secondary School places for Little Bird and the application needs to be completed on line in the next week or two. Good luck to any other parents out there going through the same process. I was also thinking about half term and hopefully our trip to France and what I need to do to make sure our pup's pet passport is valid and she is fit to travel. In addition, I had lots of ideas for quilts and other things I want to make going through my head, as well as thinking about Christmas planning, the housework that currently needs doing, what I need to do in the garden this weekend, etc. etc.
I eventually dropped off to sleep at around 3am, so woke late on Saturday feeling a bit groggy. As I was lying in bed the idea for another project popped into my head, a quilt for the dog, to put in her travel cage in the car, so I jumped out of bed to sort out the best fabric to use. I then proceeded to get started on it, as well as continuing with a quilt I'd started the day before for Little Bird, and that took care of the next couple of hours. It probably didn't endear me to the neighbours, mind you, using my sewing machine at 9.15 am. I just hope they weren't having a lie in.
By the time I'd finished what I could do on the machine, OH was back from a dog walk and made us a lovely fry up for brunch which was a reasonably rare, but very welcome treat. I feel an overwhelming sense of time flying past at the moment and I just don't seem to be keeping on top of things. It's only going to get worse as we get nearer to Christmas too, so I feel an urgent need to do as much as I can now but don't seem to be getting very far. It's very frustrating.
Anyway the rest of Saturday was spent catching up with things on line, starting on the school application, doing some household chores, a bit of work, a dog walk, watching Strictly of course, and then finally I started to watch a movie called Rent on YouTube, that this song comes from. This is the recent Glee version in memory of Cory, or Finn as he was known in the series. A beautiful song. I've posted about it in the past. I got half way through the movie before it was time for bed so will need to finish watching it some other time.
How's your weekend been so far?
