Look what popped through the door yesterday, my utilities bill. Looks alright to me. Figures tally up, I put the readings into Ebico web site. I think the July one must have been a bit late, they have estimated that, but no matter, I checked the figures against those I wrote on the calendar and the estimates are very close.

Mediterranean diet? Nope, Scunthorpe diet. Salad leaves, cucumber, tomato, avocado, rice, and mushrooms. Luverly lunch today. Home food is a million times better than eating out, and a lot cheaper.

There's a smashing exhibition on at 20 21 Arts Centre in Scunthorpe at the moment. Maia Weerdmeester is a previous winner of the Open exhibition, and was invited back for her own solo exhibition. Her art is stunning, who would think that thousands of fine straight lines of many colours could be turned into something quite amazing.

I fancied doing some weaving. I drilled some holes one inch apart through a piece of driftwood then threaded some twine through them. The idea was to leave the ends loose and finish off the bottom with wooden beads. But then I wondered how I was going to weave if all the warps were loose.
I came up with this idea. Luckily the piece of wood was was just the right length to wedge it between the legs of an upturned small table.

It's very windy here again today, luckily hardly any rain though. Outside is warmer than inside.
Someone in the village has given me a load of stuff she doesn't want, after a clear out of her loft and garage. The gazebo roof has gone to my friend, hers is falling apart so she is glad of this free replacement. She also had some curtain linings which will fit her patio doors. Soft toys, a quilted baby playmat and cot blanket, and a sewing box will be sold on the cat rescue stall. I had two pillow cases, curtain linings, and a bunch of artificial flowers.
This is my display which has been on the window sill for a lot of years and is now falling apart. Some of it I picked from around the fishing pond down the hill.
Its a bit too windy to do any gardening and the brown garden waste bin is full awaiting collection on Wednesday. Don't need any shopping, I did it yesterday. I'll go a walk at some point, and fill in the gaps with some sewing. Hair needs a cut but as I do it outside I'll have to wait till the wind drops.
