It’s lovely weather here today and we’re sitting in the summerhouse after a cup of tea.  We had a shorter walk this afternoon but there was barely anyone around.

This morning I cut OH’s hair.  I used to cut it all the time but it became more difficult with my shaky hand.  Needs must however so he just had to sit still.  It’s quite a good cut if I say so myself.  I used the clippers with an attachment to get the back done and then blended the top in.

I’ll carry on with the jumper I’m knitting this evening.

Long walk this morning into new territory for us  and got a bit lost. We were sweating buckets and getting a bit stressed when a taxi just appeared from nowhere - honestly we were in the middle of it. He took us home, and I just fell into the pool fully dressed. Rehydrated most of the day then.

 Made the last of the masks I've been working on and will deliver them tomorrow. Did a bit of language practice, then Face Timed DD and Sis in law.  Then I did some aerobics and fell in the pool again. I will not let this thing make me fat again!

Many congratulations @charlotte, we do love a wedding here :D

At least you can plan your dress now, even if others things are on hold.

Pretty much - although I will use my proper greenhouse for sowing seeds and bringing on seedlings, and then the polytunnel just for growing fruit and veg.  All the pots and paraphernalia will stay in the greenhouse.

Hi there.  Working on a few more masks today. It’s time to do the pleats, press & pack them for mailing.  (All but 2 will be donated.). I had an inspiration for making straps easily. (Not using elastic for a number of reasons.). I ordered a big roll of flat paracord to use for any more that I make.  A flat cord is easier to sew over and doesn’t require any extra sewing.  You just cut it to length and heat-seal the ends.

Later in the day, out for some archery.

@Acorn thanks for the explanation. Do you use it as a greenhouse?
