What I want to be doing is sewing…I have a dress pattern altered and the fabric cut and ready to go.

It’s sitting on the sewing room table singing its siren song and begging me to come make a start.

What I’m doing house stuff and one of the jobs du jour is painting shelves for The Boy’s room…they are shouting the fabric down and have waited longer to be done.

I’ve been putting them off because, whilst you can balance the shelves themselves on a couple of bean cans to facilitate painting, the wooden brackets are a bit more troublesome.

I explained this to The Husband, who gave me The Look.

Then he disappeared to the garage, returned with screwdriver, 4 long screws and 2 old bits of wood:

It would seem I have no excuses now….the shelves will be finished this week!
