Last few days have been adding bits to my steampunk clobber for the Asylum. Have ordered a pin stripe bustle skirt from Etsy to go with my newly acquired charity shop puchased jacket. Hope it gets here ok as have never ordered from anyone on there before. Seems to be pretty nice and accomodating as she is making this as a special order for me and very reasonably priced.
Tea dyed some white lace gloves and they have come out a nice sepia shade. The only odd thing was that one of the bows obstinately refused to change colour. Strange - hard to think that the bows were made of different materials on the same pair! Just had to remove the bows in the end.
After years of washing up have now decided to get a dish washer. Have always been put off by the size - 10 - 12 place settings which meant for 2 of us having a large selection of crockery to make it effcient for just the 2 of us most of the time. However they now make compact size ones for 4 - 5 settings which makes it more sense. So one now ordered and on its way. The installation, of course, involves major upheaval of the utility room and our friendly plumber/electrician Alan is arriving tomorrow to create new electric sockets, connect to drains and water pipes and add work tops.
The weather has been a strange mix over the last few days, we've gone from sunny and warm, to muggy and very warm winds, rain over night and this afternoon sunshine, wind and thunder!
No Welsh class tonight as our tutor is at a meeting so will be doing some revision here ourselves. Shall finish the evening watching the final double bill of The Mentalist. Been a great series and will be much missed.
