Yes, I finally made a new banner. Something nice and summery, I'm sure you'll agree! In honour of Wimbledon lol.
I took this picture
and was inspired by its summery feel.
This morning I spent some time in the garden before the weather turns on us. I spent ages grooming the cat with this special rubber brush I have that literally rips the fur from his undercoat. I tend not to do it indoors because the fluff flies everywhere, but outside, with him rolling around in the grass in appreciation, it's not a problem. In fact I'm pretty sure the birds are happy for the fluff to line their nests with. I'm telling you, I could have knitted a ginger jumper with the amount of fur I got off him today. He must be boiling hot, poor thing.
Then I thought, I know, it's such a novelty to have laundry on the line, I'll take a picture to document it...
I do love my new "soft grip" pegs - doesn't take a lot to make me happy, eh?
OOh while I've been doing this, Marion Bartoli has beaten Serena Williams! Go Frenchy!! It was a great match. She just said to the interviewer "beating Serena Williams is like a dream come true". Awww.
What else? Oh yes, here is a rather wonky picture of my new office space (I just can't get a straight one and I promise I haven't been drinking!).
Over the weekend, Claire helped me to bring my bureau down from upstairs where it was in a corner on the landing and I rejigged all the computer bits and cables to set it up. This way, I'm hoping to switch off properly when I've finished working on the PC, by putting the monitor on top and closing the desk flap. The drawers below are also very handy for putting all my bits and bobs from the various projects I have going on at the moment. It'll hopefully be much neater than it has been. I've put the modern computer desk on Freecycle and I hope someone wants it, or I'll have to dismantle it and lug it round to the Oxfam furniture shop... which is where I got the bureau a few years ago. I'd always wanted one (my mum has one) and when I saw this I snapped it up thinking I'd paint it. So far it's remained au naturel and I think I might just leave it now. I rather like my desktop picture of an m&m heart that I think I blogged ages ago. And I found the perfect place for my vision board too. It feels all cosy now!
Right, I'm off for a little rest - after I've rescued the clothes: rain is forecast in about half an hour!
