This is getting more and more difficult.
I have voted but wouldn't want anyone who doesn't win to feel downhearted as they are all outstanding

Husband is registering his aunt's death and it's going remarkably smoothly! The rules have been relaxed so the GP emailed the medical certificate to the registry office and husband is now having a telephone appointment with the registrar. It should then be possible to email the death certificate to the undertaker.
All much easier than usual - perhaps some of these changes will become permanent.

I seem to have slipped into total lethargy/apathy and haven't done much at all so far!

@charlotte   stunning ring.  Did he choose it on his own?  If he did he`s definitely a keeper

Come on @charlotte  we need more than that!  When did this happen, and where and how?

Can't decide whether to go for a walk or carry on sitting on the settee

Husband's aunt died in the night. Don't offer condolences - she was 95 and up until a couple of years ago had a charmed life.
Husband is her next of kin and trying to organise the formalities (we live an hour away) - which is tricky on a Saturday during a pandemic! She can't have a funeral - we will try to do something later .
Her live-in carer has been absolutely incredible

Good morning does anyone else feel perpetually tired since things have gone mad in the world, every day I intend to do things that don’t happen.

I'm much more tired than usual despite doing very little. And, bizarrely, I am sleeping better too!

Marmalade sandwiches = bliss.
Peanuts in any shape or form are the work of the devil

Today... One thread per day / April Fool!?!?!?

Has everyone decided it`s not worth getting up today?

Here`s hoping April is better than March

@Efemera I've never worked with any sort of border print. I suppose the most obvious thing would be a skirt. What would you do?

One of the reasons I was very keen to move is that our new house isn`t far from Higgs and Higgs shop.  All that is on hold for a while so I had a little wander over to their website.  They have a lot of tempting stuff and this has definitely taken my eye:-

I never thought I'd be interested in clothes for dolls until I saw your work Ann!  How on earth did you do those buttonholes?
