Blimey the weather is very blowy today. I went for a walk this morning and it was very bracing to say the least!!
Here are some pics I took on my walk....
It is amazingly windy and the sash windows are rattling like mad. Goodness knows what it's like in Hastings at the moment - the wind there is pretty bad all year round!
Anyway - I enjoyed my somewhat bracing walk and then got the urge for a boiled egg. Alan has this fantastic gadget for doing boiled eggs exactly right. I think it's German, and must be from the 70's or early 80's because it's orange and brown ha ha ha!
You take the lid off and get the little measuring cup out. Then look round the side and you can see Soft, Medium or Hard and how many eggs you want to cook. Fill up with water to the correct level and then pour in the bottom of the cooker.
You then prick the egg with the little widget inside, place the eggs in the holder, replace the lid and switch it on. When the eggs are done the timer goes off. It's brilliant!!
Et Voila! Perfectly done soft boiled eggs with toasty soldiers - Mmmmm.
I am still trying to sort out my sewing room and the house generally. I have decided that I just have too much stuff. I have been uming and aarhing (is that how you spell it??) about these little fellers but have decided to let them go:
I've got them up on eBay at the moment - here - along with some other bits.
My next decision is whether to let my Chaise Longue go. I covered it in some fantastic GP&J Baker fabric but to be honest I just don't have the space. It'll be a wrench but I need to be practical. It's not all finished off perfectly inside and I am not a professional upholsterer but it is very beautiful.
It looked brilliant in my old house but this place is too small and the space it takes up would be better served with some drawers.
The pics below show it in the living room at my old place in Hastings. These are the Estate Agents pics. The landlord couldn't believe it was his house when he saw how nice I made it look with all my stuff - well that is a compliment I guess.
The other thing I am thinking of getting rid of is the dark carved sideboard. You can see it in the bottom picture. Again, there is just no room for it in here. I bought it with me from Castle House where I lived with Alan, so it has memories but it just doesn't fit anywhere. I can hear Alan saying to me 'It's just a bit of bloody furniture', and perhaps he is right.
Anyway, the wind is actually getting a bit scarey now and I have just noticed that my neighbours palm tree has snapped in half and the top bit has blown into my garden. What a shame - it was about 9 feet tall so must have taken an age to grow. I'd better go and see if it can be saved as a stump?
Bye Bye. Enjoy your day.
