Beautiful weather..and a make do moment

Hello all,how are you today?
I hope that you are all enjoying the sunshine and the warmth it brings.
We had to retreat indoors today..the girls burn very easily and even with Factor 50 suncream on they were starting to go a little red and get very overheated..so we came in and had some Ice-cream to cool us all down.I covered them in After Sun Lotion and it seemed to stop the redness..i also had to give them Piriton today ..not for Hayfever but the girls always get very red and itchy blotches all over them as soon as the sun starts to make an appearance..and its not nice to be itchy and sore is it..so Piriton it is.

Every Sunday with out fail unless i am seriously ill i change the beds and do the bathroom and hoover all upstairs and down the stairs..i like to start my week all clean and tidy.
I took of all the big comforters and put them away..i also put some lightweight sheets on our bed and Sams bed..unfortunately i don't have any for the girls beds and they get hot and sweaty.
So i had a great idea..i have some old duvet covers..why don't we unpick them and make them into single sheets for the girls beds.

So we did..i had a pretty pink one that they both liked so off we went.
 It was reverseable and has a pretty pattern on both sides..


 2 lovely single sheets for the girls beds..hopefully they will be cooler for them ..the quilts are still there and will be folded at the bottom of the beds for them if they want them in the night.
The beauty of it is they didn't cost a thing..
take care
