The day so far

He’s concentrating……………. the brow is furrowed, the pen is dangling from the corner of the mouth and his eye brows are almost touching behind his glasses.
But I’ll come back to that.

Into town some 17 miles away first thing today to get some stomach remedy that is assisting with the occasional bouts of reflux. The posh stuff doesn’t work, but a cheapie does, so we’re stocking up. It tastes foul he says, but it works. Reminds me of the stuff we had as kids, and the worse it tasted, the better job it did. I wonder why that is?
We had an idea where we’d park as the side roads are closed on a Friday as it’s one of the three market days. A lovely spot was available but somebody nipped in from the other direction, so we had to go through the one way system, managing to find a convenient space in the High Street.
The traffic warden checked our badge and gave us the thumbs up so we knew we were OK for three hours. Hubby got what he wanted, then we decided to have a spot of breakfast, which would actually serve as our main meal so I’ve got out of cooking today.
A couple of other things to check out, then back home. The vehicle that had ‘nicked’ our parking space was sporting a nice shiny ticket……… seems he did not have a blue badge and was parked in a disabled bay.

Hubby needed a project, so I bought him one for Christmas. The thing was he’d forgotten all about it and I’d forgotten where I’d put it, so it was a pleasant surprise to open the cupboard looking for something else and finding it. Isn’t that always the way?
So, while Hubby has been working, so have I.
I made ten cards today as I have some special birthdays and anniversaries this year. I’ve got a small problem though as I ran out of zeros, especially silver ones, so will be on the hunt over the next few days to find some to finish off an 80th birthday card for a dear boating friend.
This one’s not quite finished, but I haven’t anyone specifically in mind for it yet.
So while I’ve been working on these, Hubby has been putting his jigsaw together.
It’s one of the Woodcraft range we saw in the garden centre, and it is not as straightforward as it looks.
It says on the pack not recommended for children under 3, but I wonder if there’s an O missing from that as it is proving fiddly slotting everything together, then if you get one piece in the wrong place, well, the air was almost as blue as one of my cards.
Hubby will hopefully finish it tomorrow. This is what he’s working on:

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    As much as I love jigsaw puzzles, I think I’d rather make cards with you than the owl hubby’s tackling. Good luck to him.

  2. You’re so very talented, those cards are beautiful!

    • Thank you. Most of them today were kits but if I’m careful I can make two, possibly three cards out of each one with a few extra trimmings. It also keeps them thin ennough for standard postage!

  3. I used to have a blue badge for my mother years ago, always annoying when you can’t find a space and some bugger with no badge is parked in the space. Some small compensation when you see them get a ticket.

    I love your cards. A special personal card would make the recipients day. And the owl is awesome!

  5. A very productive day (and no cooking either!).

    Oh lively Di. Making cards. I love them when all that live has been poured into them.

  7. LoL.. children under 3 are probably far better at puzzles than me. I know my grandkids had an eye for a puzzle at an early age
