I've just put Lily down for her morning nap which are getting less and less frequent these days, she just doesn't seem to want to sleep and as she's all over the place I daren't leave her too long out of my sight in case she falls over. My last day for the week though, her mother takes over until next Monday, so four days of catching up on what I've not done.
I did manage to get a hearty stew going in the oven before she got up, one of Tony's favourite meals, only the dumplings and shallots to add later so an easy day cooking wise. I might even make a rice pud to go with it for afters though I probably won't be able to move for hours after I've eaten it.
Rachel's three cats don't like this cold weather and they've started picking on each other and the fur is literally flying everywhere so a good hoovering is on the cards for tomorrow. I'd love to have a move round with the furniture but at the moment I can't see how it would fit in any differently, will have to get the tape measure out and work it out.
I think that it's time for a cuppa then I'd better make a start on the two piles of ironing that are waiting for me. I might manage to get a bit done before Lily wakes up. you never know...........

I've managed to finish my cross stitch for the Christmas exchange that I'm in, I never thought that I'd finish it as one thing after another seemed to go wrong. I haven't done a lot of stitching this year but I'm getting back into the swing of things so I hope that I can keep going with it.
I've still got to sew the biscornu together and as I've never done one before, I'm hoping and praying that it will come together ok. I've got to post it out next weekend so if it all goes wrong there's not much time to stitch anything else.
I've also managed to make five of the six cards that I need for the thread exchange next month, I don't have to make hand made cards but I like to make the effort. Now if only I can find the energy to do all the cleaning that's been backing up over the last week, I'd be a happy lady. I'd better go and do a bit of tidying round or it will all be waiting for me tomorrow and I don't think I could face that........

This is Lily at just a few hours old; she weighed in at 5lb 10 1/2 ounces and looked so tiny but she's certainly making up for it now.
