Long summer days...........................

Where are they? It's almost midsummer's day, the longest day of the year. Where?

So far I haven't really even noticed the lighter nights. And, so far, I can almost count the t-shirt days on the fingers of 2 hands. I suppose once July and August get here the weather may pick up.

I don't like very hot weather, I'm just not built for it, but I do love the smell of washing fresh from the line. Yesterday was a good drying day, quite warm and windy, but today is miserable, and according to the weather reports things are not looking good for the weekend.

Unless I'm on a beach, splashing around, the best thing about fine weather is hanging out the washing and being able to walk places without getting wet. I'm not a sun-seeker, hate wearing dark glasses, but I do like a straw hat. I get some funny looks when I wear my straw hat, but I like it.
It has seen better days mind, it's looking a bit tatty, but I love it.

We aren't having a holiday this year, but our plan is to strip the living/dining room of the yukky paper that's been on for years, then re-line and paint the walls. It won't be easy but it has to be done. I'm hoping to persuade my other half to refresh the kitchen and bathroom too, but shhh it's a secret. I've sort of approached the subject of the kitchen, but I haven't mentioned the bathroom at all yet. I thought I'd surprise him LOL.

I made some more Smelly Cats last week but only just got around to taking photos of them.

I love the beige one with the blue trims. The colours go much better than I thought they would. Now I have to crack on with more, and bunnies too, thanks to my lovely, dear friend Angel.

So, for now, I bid you all a fond farewell, while I go off a-sewing.

Love and blessings in Christ
