A bit of gloomy day yesterday, with lots of rain. But it didn;t stop Jan and me to walk to the DIY market not too far away from us, and we did buy a new ladder. What an exciting buy, isn't it?? LOL.
Well, this one is just a bit higher than the one we have, and will serve us well to reach ceilings and high places. And a nice thing is, that this one is much lighter of weight, so it will be a lot easier to carry it around.
We spent a bit of time in the market, hthere are always interesting things to see, specially the Christmas market, they started. Oh we saw so many lovely things, hard to resist, but we managed. LOL.
It would be a bit silly to buy new stuff, because we are already loaded with Christmas decorations.
But probably in the coming weeks I will see something, that is so nice and attractive, that there will be found an excuse to buy it, hahahah.
On the way back we passed a supermarket, we know it is there for a long time already, but in fact never visited it. I noticed they had sacs of potatoes for a good price and as we needed to have some, I quickly went in to buy that. Took a very quick look around and it looked well!
So I said to Jan, we definately would have to visit it one of these days. I think we might find some good bargains there.
We came home a bit soaked by the drizzling rain, but never mind, we dried up rather soon.
In the time we were out, I turned on the washing machine, and ome again that was ready so I could hang it out in the extension. Yes, where all the mess it at the moment, there was ust enough room left for me to be able to hang the laundry and I even managed to do some ironing. All the ready stuff is lying on the couch there now, because it was hard to get into the closet LOL! Oh, I wish there came some house fairies over night to take care of all that mess and that I wake up in the morning and see all cleared away and painted and vacuum cleaned and such. But helas, I only can dream of it!
I will have to do some grocerie shopping today, I think it is just the right day in the week for it. I see some sunshine at the moment and on the weather channel they said it would stay dry today.
Hoorray, I hope I will be lucky.
Next week Jan will have to go to hospital for his normal check up test and then the week after he will have his ppointment with the doctor. Let's hope the results will be okay, I will know that after his visit, perhaps,. He isn;t always too informative about his conversations with the doctor, and he doesn;t want me to go with him. Yeah, you know, men are difficult to handle at times ROFL.
Oh, Monday was a nice day. First I got a call from my freind Heidi, we spent some time at the phone, and then she said she would pay me a visit later that day. She didn;t see all the new paint and such yet. So in the afternoon there she was, Jan already had left for a walk and whatever( he said it was better, so we could chat together about everything we wanted LOL), and she stayed about anhour or so. Nice to see eachother again.
That's about all for this post. The only thing left is the freebie, "Take me Home". A nice kit, I think, bit vintage and grunge, soft colors, ready for some great layouts by you!
And of course a lovely add-on from Arlene, with again a beautiful quuickpage in it!
Have a wonderful day.
