Lots of small jobs were completed this weekend because my grandson and his girl friend were here. A new curtain rail to keep out the draughts from the back door, a new front door bell, a new smoke alarm in the kitchen, light bulbs replaced. You might think I could do some of these myself but the problem is the high ceiling in this house and I do not like standing on the top step of a step ladder while alone in the house.
The other thing he sorted out was the TV!! And he did not even know there was a problem. I walked into the sitting room to find him watching the Grand Prix in Italy. 'I see you`ve got High Definition here` he said. Apparently the change-over has been happening here for the last 2 weeks!! He showed me what to do and how to tell. Amazing. A grandson is a good thing with electronic equipment. Apart from that, I spent a lot of time cooking. And there are hardly any left-overs!!
In between all this drilling of holes, I have finished the 2/30 cotton warping onto the sectional warp beam. I will put the lease sticks in and then put on the 2/6 warp today and start threading tomorrow. I have to visit the lawyer today. At last all the work is done and I have to sign everything off for probate. At which point I can deal with all Michael's musical things. But I will not start that until I am back from Japan and possibly not until after the Weaving Exhibition is over in mid-November. Which reminds me - see below.
