In this case sitting down to look at what we did do (rather than the things I never got to) has helped me see we achieved plenty and I should feel much better about it than I do!
Also last weekend and Easter seem a long time ago!
Since my last Feather your Nest post we took up that old carpet and transformed the office. It looks really good now and somehow more stylish and professional.
Over Easter my present to Andy was a tray of Brownies. Since Valentine's Day he has been talking about Brownies!
Never making one of anything I made two trays. I found last time it froze well. Some will come on our trip and some will be handy in winter, probably when I have made soup for dinner and we have a desert.
Andy trimmed the hedge out the back.
I made a tuna mornay and one night served it in vol au vents and another as a casserole.
I altered two tops that I never wear as they were too long. Fixed! Now I love them.
When at the Chemist I was offered samples. Just after talking about samples too! So I said yes pleased I love samples! I think she gave me more due to my enthusiastic response as it was about ten items and included a lovely hand cream, a cleanser, a moisturiser and one was a Burts Bees face cream.
I made three more heat packs. One of these was for Lucy. She likes velvet like I do. This was a remnant from Spotlight.
We planted an apple tree last year. The first apple has appeared!
Well, it's a start!
What I didn't do was any painting and I haven't finished replying to your comments on Wednesday.
My back is heaps better so I am set to start painting again this afternoon and tomorrow. And replies are coming!
So I did get some things done. The office floor is the biggest thing and huge home improvement.
I have two new tops to wear since I fixed a fault with them. And I got ahead with a few deserts in the freezer.
Nightly "our" two Mud Larks come to visit. This one will sit on Andy's head.
But the last few weeks a Willie Wagtail has come too. You can see him in the background just past Birdies Head. He is getting quite tame too. These guys entertain us endlessly!
I hope you had a good week! And I hope April will be good for us all. I am aiming to get my front fence painted this month. If I get that done then I will go onto the front veranda and lattice work etc. This is exciting as it is going to change the look of our house so much! I think it will be really pretty.
How did you build up your home and save money this week? What are your hopes and goals for April? A new month is a good time for a review and stock take. I think we got a lot done in the first quarter of the year so I am happy with that!
