I AM...

... not going to be doing much sewing to-day....  because I have a LIST of things to get done!!... oh! this retirement lark is exhausting! lol x It is mostly housework ... and you KNOW how I feel about that!... why do you think I am here right now instead of getting started? (snorted my own cup of tea then xx)

I was out in the garden ... now isn't that funny .. I go out every day and brush up the dead leaves in the garden ..WAIT...


.... (sample pile ) and as I walk away there is a sssshhhhhiiiinnnggg noise and more leaves fall down ready for brushing up to-morrow ..... and it doesn't bother me ... out I go x BUT when it comes to cleaning up and ironing and washing ... which is also always there ... I moan about it! lol x

ANYWAY... I was out in the garden ... and I have to tell you I recently listened to a radio programme that was all about the hot dry summer and how the spiders have grown BIG ... for us anyway .. and how the females are all coming looking for mates!!... (I seem to going off at all angles this morning!...) and I saw THIS...


I had to put a piece of paper behind to get her to show up in the picture!!... risking life and limb I might add...


GOOD GRIEF!!... I am off to do some of the housework on my list ... and NOT look at the cobwebs in the corners xx

... just re-read that and had a thought ... do you think she could be eating the groom!! YUCK!

I feel your pain! Housework just didn't go away when we retired. What's up with that?

There are certainly plenty of the big ladies around this year.

Amazing spider photos! Quentin Crisp said that here is no need to do any housework at all because after the first four years the dirt doesn't get any worse. Worth a try:-)?
