Talking of having time to breathe...

It's gonna be a busy week... In fact, it's BEEN a busy week, and it's just after lunch on Monday!
Yesterday I designed and printed the invitations for our Big Do this summer (Silver wedding!), then researched and made a list of B&B places for non-campers, and wrote a letter to go with it for all our friends and families... Then printed off 75 copies of the invitation! Just have to write the names in now! This was AFTER swimming yesterday morning from 9:20 to 10 am (fibro is bad, so was exhausted after 30 lengths. Not good, but better than not going at all!).
So far today I have put name tapes in two pairs of school trousers and hemmed up one for today (before 7:30 this morning!
Then I spent an hour or so copying names out of our address book on the pooter into a template for labels for envelopes. This was easier than setting up a mail merge from scratch and printing on the odd-size envelopes!
After this I drew up the pattern (Mk I) for a set of frocks for an elderly lady: she wants something loose and easy for summer, in pure cotton or linen... Garden Frocks, she said: the sort you drag on and mooch in round the garden, but are decent enough to whiz off to the newsagent across the way for ice cream for the grands of that's what takes your fancy!
I've reheated my coffee twice, and keep stumbling on the cat ramp... Hm... DH painted the doorstep frames yesterday afternoon, and set up a ramp between the conservatory and the living room to keep little furry footprints off the wed varnish. Fat flaming chance with Cornflake about! Dozy beast got his foot into the one inch gap! Dur! (Still, not as bad as when I painted the front living room windowsill in the previous house with white paint: Marmalade proceeded in a leisurely fashion down the whole 98" of the sill, and then carefully and neatly trod white footprints on as many bits of furniture as he could manage before it dried!)
Still to do: Alterations for a toile for a wedding dress to fit tomorrow, make up a toile for this frock, and try to complete DH's first shirt...
Oh, at the back end of last week, DH whinged that the shirt I made him a while back was wearing out! Well, I'm not at all surprised as this shirt was made as a thing to help me get used to the new sewing machine I bought to make my wedding dress on! Hah! So I dug 3 bits of fabric out of the loft for him to pick between, and the blasted man wants all three made up as he couldn't make up his mind! I did say that he'd have to dump a bundle of old work shirts in the charity bag to make room for them...
