It's coming together, slowly.

Hello. Crafty Club was busy this morning, full house, we had to get another table out. Lots of chattering going on, it's all too much for me, I sit quietly and do my thing and wait till the chatter dies down, then I can speak. It's very difficult to hear what's being said in a noisy environment, that's why I don't go out socializing very often. I need to be reasonably close to the person I am speaking to, but if there is background noise my hearing aid picks it all up and drowns out the voice of the person I want to hear. My felting picture is coming along nicely. 
I did a bit more on the Summer House this afternoon, but it is still windy, not ideal for working outside. I had a pallet with slats missing so I added wood to fill the gaps. I've screwed it to the corner opposite the other one. I stopped at this point because time was getting on, and the wind was making it quite difficult to hold the heavy door in position while I screwed it into place. That pallet doesn't look very stable but I have secured it with screws on the one side, and there is a metal pole hammered into the ground on the other side. Work will resume tomorrow if it isn't too windy. Once I have the second door on I need to find a piece of wood to go across the top of the doors to join them together, I think I have one in the garage. 
Mayze was outside with me, snoozing in the kitty shelter.

Heidi was out for a while but doesn't like wind, so she came back in. This is where I found her. There are lots of comfortable places she could get comfortable in, but no, she likes to have her back leg dangling over the edge of a windowsill, or this stool in the bathroom. I sometimes find her curled up in the bath, when there is no water in it, or in the wash basin.

I thought I might go shopping tonight as I have very little left in the fridge, and I'm running out of other things as well. A £6 off voucher arrived this morning from Tesco so that will be used, but I can't be bothered to go tonight, maybe tomorrow night.

Thanks for popping in, we'll catch up soon.

  1. I do sympathise with the hearing thing. I also find it hard when there is a lot of chatter and I'm trying to focus on one conversation. I have become quite good at lip reading and reading facial expressions, but it's a pain. Can't wait to see your finished felt picture.

  2. I also have a hearing issue on my left side plus tinnitus so it's an absolute nightmare trying to have a decent conversation with lots of background noise. I think Ive said no many times when it should have been yes and nodded when I shouldn't have. So fully understand your noise problems. Your cats look lovely and are typical of cats I will sleep where I want to so please call me for lunch when its cat slave x Rae x
