When one job leads to another job.
Yesterday was the start of the end of year sales. I had been waiting for them as I really needed some new manchester. Off I went at 8am (not that I really wanted an early start on Boxing Day!) and bought what I wanted without any hassles and no crowds. It was quite a stress-free experience! By the time I got the car at 9:15am the car park was starting to fill up and I left just in time.
Buying a doona cover that suits both a male and female can be tricky. My DH does not like girly white/pastels/pink covers. So I hunted around for something that we would both like and this is what I found and DH loved it. It is very rich in colour (not that the photo shows this) and in a heavy fabric (unlike many that are in a soft cotton). This isn't likely to show black hair from one fluffy cat!! Besides the doona, I also picked up 2 sets of sheets (1000 thread Egyptian cotton) and a memory pillow for my son. If you live near a Harris Scarf's store - it is the best place for sheets and it has the BEST sales - I saved almost 70% on the original prices.
|The new doona cover and pillows. Its hard to tell, but the colour is very rich - gold, purple, green, deep red in a heavy fabric.|
|The cow is my heat wheat pack that I use in winter and the black guerrilla "I love you" was a gift from my husband!!|
|The back of the doona is cotton is this gorgeous rich gold, so when I saw sheets also in gold I just had to buy them. It makes the bed look luxurious!|
Once DH and I made the bed (we even turned the mattress) I decided to tackle the linen cupboard and go through all the sheets and throw away anything that had become wore etc.. This led to a much bigger clean out. Our linen cupboard is full of "stuff" and it really needed a complete going through - so that is what I did. I was surprised at what I found!!!

|Ruby getting very involved in everything I was doing.|
|Doing an inspection!!!|
|Getting into things she wasn't meant to!!|
|Rubbish - all fitted in the bin, just!! and I had another pile for St Vinnies charity bin!|
|That was exhausting!!|
Once the linen cupboard was clean, I had plenty of extra space to move things from the study into the cupboard. This lead to cleaning out part of the study!!! Some hours later I had a ham sandwich and a hot chocolate.
|That was good|
PS Those tabs at the top of my blog may look good but are currently not working. I did some fancy html alterations but got stuck!! Still figuring out how to write the extensions so they work.
