I'm beginning to wonder if the Saga of the Fridge/Mattress is ever going to draw to a close. This morning I booked the recyclers to come and pick up the mattress but that will mean getting it downstairs. To my mind, throwing it over the balcony whilst shouting 'LOOK OUT BELOW" is good enough but Resident Chef refuses to entertain that thought. So, he arrived in my sewing room doorway this afternoon wondering if I was doing anything. Ummmm....you need to ask???.....However I, being a dutiful wife, followed him into the living room where he announced that he's figured out a way to transport the thing. We will just fold it up and tie it and then it will fit on our cart. Me, being a skeptical wife, yet as above-noted, also dutiful - was commandeered to throw myself bodily over said mattress to hold it in place whilst he tied it up. Long involved story short (and under much trepidation on my part, having all sorts of mental images of said mattress uncoiling and throwing me upwards towards the ceiling) the mattress is now trussed up like a chicken, awaiting the next part of the process, that of tying it onto the cart and wrestling it into the elevator. If you don't hear from me, you'll know said mattress has thrown me down the elevator shaft....
Oh, and a further side note to the storage room/small fridge debacle? Now Resident Chef has decided that he simply doesn't want to bend over to deal with what's in that fridge and therefore it needs to be 'up on something'. Of course, that 'something' is ALSO just a half inch too big to go in without....you guessed it....moving that shelving unit again. Our 42nd wedding anniversary is today and I suspect he's leaving wading into that project until after we've gotten through the day because he's quite sure I might not be speaking to him afterwards. Wonder whatever would give him that opinion?
The final three ornaments (minus one, that's awaiting knowing what the baby's name will be) are stitched....
Santa is part of another design - as is Mrs. Santa. The owl design ended up becoming a snowy owl and I re-designed his feet because the originals were much too large.
- Have a look through the galleries of THIS artist!

Today the quote simply has
to be an anniversary wish to the love of my life!
