New books Glasses and a present..

Hello all i hope that your all ok.
Yesterday we had an early visitor ..a neighbour had been hunting and brought us this..now i don't mind but first thing in the morning my tummy went a bit funny..but a most welcome present
 Thankfully hubby sorted it out..
We took the girls to have their eyes tested..Fern is absolutely fine..Iris however is very shortsighted..and does need Glasses..and i am going to say it..I knew it..she can read and write but i have noticed she struggles and moves the book or paper closer then away from her so she can focus..so we will pick them up next week. She gets 2 pairs..one is free and will be repaired for free..the others are free but i have to pay for repairs on them..as she doesn't attend school i am hoping they won't get broken or damaged..one pair will be kept upstairs so she can read when she goes to bed and also when she wakes up. She is so excited as i think it was the first time she could actually see clearly at the opticians when he was trying different lenses. I must say the Optician himself was lovely..very patient and clear in talking to both girls.Both girls thanked him when they were done.
We then went down stairs where a lovely lady was waiting for us..she helped Iris pick out some beautiful glasses..i was there but i like them to make their own choices..so she has 2 Blue pairs..one with flowers and one with Olaf from Frozen on them. Very nice lady and Iris is very happy with them so job done.

Whilst we were in there..hubby went to Wilko's..he got the electrics for our Pantry re-vamp.He had a wander and also got me 2 tester pots in bright colours for picture frames..i know they are bright but i have a plan.
 The tester pots are bright orange and bright green..wow its going to be good to paint my picture frames in all the bright jazzy colours..they are for my downstairs loo..its going to be bright in there when i am done.
We took the girls to Smiths to spend their Christmas Vouchers..they bought these and i added the extra money..they are great and they spent sometime playing with them after tea.



 The new books i ordered for Iris arrived..36 books levels 1-6..i think these along with her new glasses will help her tremendously..she has read 3 already today.
 I had to search for this..i finally found it on the top shelf..i need this as when we emptied the loft i found 2 of my Grans Brass wall plates..which i can remember watching them glow as she lit the fire in her little prefab..i am not parting with them ..they are going on the wall in my bedroom once cleaned..i also found a Brass Bell..that is going to be cleaned and popped on Ebay..
 I got my starch so now no pillow case,hanky or sheet and shirt is safe from me..
I did have a bit of a splurge when i saw these in B&M..lovely jars with airtight lids..they will definitely come in handy and be used quite a bit..£1.99 for the 3..after that we headed home..all worn out.
It was a quick tea of beans or spaghetti on toast tonight,bathtime and bed..i think the girls were worn out..its quite a walk into town ,around town and then home again.
Tomorrow is a school day and we will be staying home.
Until then take care all.

  1. Sounds like a successful day all round. I'm a bit of a starch fan, too. Nothing like a good starched pillow-case!

  2. Hi Sara, you sound to have had a busy and productive day.

    When Emma my younger daughter was 10 I took her for an eye test, and I was amazed at how little she could see, I had no idea and I felt very guilty. She only wore glasses for about 2 years and then her eyes seemed to change.

    I look forward to seeing how the pantry and toilet turns out. I love a project to start the new year off. I have changed the throws and cushions in the sitting room to cream and apple green, and the room looks so much brighter. I don't like the dark days of winter.

    Hugs and love to you and the girls

    1. Hi Marie..o i felt so bad when she got excited because she could see the letters properly..hopefully these glasses will help her a lot..i think all mums feel bad..thing is children don't know how to say that something is wrong..so don't feel bad at least you took her and got it sorted.
      I bet your living room loves fantastic..i have some lovely green cushion covers that are going spare if you need them..
      I can't wait to get cracking on the loo and Pantry..i need to gather all the bits first..
      love you much

      Much love

  3. I haven't starched a pillow in ages. I do think I bought some starch years ago but never gave it a thought since. I wonder if I still have the tin... I shall go and look

  4. Have fun with your spray starch. I used to have ironing days when I would spray starch all the vintage lace cloths and napkins that I sold in my little shop in Cumbria, by the end of the session all the hairs in my nose would be rock solid with breathing in the starch!!

    1. Thanks Sue i love starch..my old neighbour introduced me to many years ago and i fell in love with it..nothing like a good starched pillow or hanky..i think Jack Dog wasn't impressed with it..everytime i sprayed it he barked at it.
