@Puzzler have you looked at these for tiles - might not be your cup of tea but we`ve had some good ones from them and they send samples quickly

Thank you, @sewingj. The tiles available everywhere are pretty much the same. I will most likely go with something neutral so am sure to find something. At least there are tiles on this site with a reasonable price per square meter.

 :hug: @hernibs. I'm sorry you are dealing with this painful situation. Heartened to hear you have support on hand.

I know what you mean about bin day, Imi. I started to wheel my bins out yesterday before realising I was a day early.  :S

Not much planned today apart from the usual. I went hunting for wall tiles yesterday. From what I have found online and in store, gee, what a boring lot of same ole, same ole and eye-wateringly expensive. Like everything these days, I suppose.

Still, the sun is shining so grateful for that at least. Will be catching up on GBSB this evening. Fell asleep during last night’s episode. Did the same on Tuesday watching the jewellery competition. Boring shows or old lady syndrome?

You are not alone @Lemon Syllabub. Many of us have become so accustomed to our own four walls that to shift out of that safe place is daunting and, to some, extremely frightening, i.e. those who suffer from social anxiety.

I have a Zoom meeting to attend this morning for work. I am half expecting the guy who is supposed to speak to me about window options to rock up in the middle of it unannounced. He was asked to contact me first to arrange a convenient time so hoping he complies.

I might order a kitchen sink and taps later. Skip being collected today and a new one delivered. Exciting stuff.  ;)

Yesterday I joined my local GP surgery. I was registered at another one which is close to where I lived when I was in my rented property. I haven’t been too impressed with them and kept hearing/reading rave reviews of this local surgery. Even the building inspector who, as it happens, used to own a house on my road brought it up in conversation. From building regs to GP surgeries. Not exactly related but a handy tip.

In sewing news, I have been sewing up toiles in different sizes/cup sizes for the Itch to Stitch Seychelles top. Might start a thread about it in the appropriate section.

Have good days, all and hugs to those who are feeling down.  :grouphug:

Oh my, I want a banana room now!

I wonder how many patterns were bought by TSPers - enough for additional group discount? I resisted this time.

I hadn't thought about linen. Despite the discount I would need about £70 worth as it's a very wide upstairs bedroom window - more than I intended to spend. I have curtains already and wanted something sheer underneath to diffuse the afternoon sunlight in summer. The curtain fabric was only about £9 a metre.
