One huge bonus of having friends over on a Friday night is that the house is all clean and tidy for the weekend. We totally blitzed the housework when I got back from work at lunchtime so we have no chores to do all weekend - yay! Our friends were originally coming over for drinks but a wave of laziness swept over me and I asked them if they would prefer to come over earlier and we'd get a takeaway instead.
No hesitation whatsoever - I guess they didn't fancy cooking either. We are spoilt for choice with good takeaways here - we're not the only ones - one of our local restaurants is always posting Instagram pictures of when Rod Stewart goes in there. So I suppose him and Penny don't always feel like cooking on a Friday night either. Celebrities are no different from us ordinary folk!
The random quilt is taking shape
Since this photo was taken I've actually sewn the 5 squares for each row together so today I'm planning to sew the rows together and then I can decide on fabrics for the edging, backing and binding. I sense a little time spent browsing fabric websites over the next day or two.
We'll be browsing travel websites too, as last night we planned a long weekend away with our friends - after a bottle or two of wine, we've decided on Bologna in Italy. Watch this space! Time for my husband to put his Italian lessons into practice.
I need to do some meal planning for the next few days - we have no visitors at all this weekend so we can have what we want - I'm planning on trying a dessert recipe that a workmate gave me for Raspberry and Almond Torte - it was delicious when she made it, I'm hoping I can match her high standards ... remind me again, was it me who said she had to eat more healthily in the New Year?
