Tying Up All The Loose Ends

Tying Up The Loose Ends…Those Blinds!

Like the swallows that have gone on ahead of us, we are heading south. It’s been a couple of days of tying up all the loose ends. So….the three Roman blinds which have mathematically troubled me, are complete. I have left comprehensive instructions for my boy and hope that the lovebirds will figure out the mechanics of blind hanging. I rather think a very helpful and DIY savvy father in law will take them in hand. I hope my mathematics and perfect folds will be celebrated!

Meanwhile there have been presents to wrap and send. I loved the zoo animal wallpaper found in a John Lewis oddment bin. I added an alphabet Christmas decoration, an Anthropologie purchase. Meanwhile a Rocking Dog Advent calendar is winging its way up to Northumberland for a new little family. I know it’s early but there’ll be plenty of time to choose lots of lovely little trinkets to fill those pockets. No, Michael….. NO!

The Fridge needs de-fooding so there are various cunning Rocking Dog “bottom of the fridge recipes” to use up all that veg’. Soups, savoury crumbles and a large tray of roasted vegetables are favourites.

As for the packing it’s scary, and makes Andyman very tutty and grumbly! The big question is will those lanterns make the cut!
