If you caught Sunday’s post then you’ll know that I’ve gone all old school this week and am blogging daily to share with you what I’ve been up to that day seeing as I have a week off work with LOTS of things on the t0-do list!
Today’s day four and it’s been so grey and miserable outside that I haven’t even minded being stuck in the house today! 😂
Despite the grey skies outside, our day started well as Master Frugal cooked us some waffles for breakfast as his first live lesson was cancelled. We have the simplest recipe ever for waffles so they’re pretty basic as far as waffles go but it works for us and it’s easy enough that he managed to make them without any help from me – other than the cleaning obviously! 😇
My plan was then to make some of our homemade bird feeders with some birdseed that I dug out of the garage yesterday but I only had half a pack of suet left which meant it was a toss-up between the birds getting bird feeders and us getting dumplings to go with our tea tomorrow and the dumplings won out I’m afraid.
Next time I get to the shop, I’ll stock up on Suet for all of our sakes. 😂
Instead, I painted my dining room chairs in a gloss white instead of the shabby chic look that they had before. The seat pads are now happily recovered in grey fabric (I used tea towels as I like to change them up quite often so cheap is better and they’re ready to assemble again tomorrow when the paint is dry.
I’m not going to lie, it was one of those jobs that I really wished I hadn’t started when I was just one chair in but I powered through and got all four done.
And aside from a bath and a date with my book, that’s pretty much all I have for today!
See you tomorrow. 😇
