easter break 2016: day five

Sadly, today was the last day of my lovely break. And the last day of my three action items. And what do you know? All done!

I’m totally rolling this approach out to other weekends/months. I’m amazed that I actually managed to do three of the things that I have been putting off for months! Probably


I took Corey down from the wall and rode him down to the bike shop for the first service.

I even rode all the way there and back on the road! At some point I will stop being excited by that – this is not that time.

He’s definitely a little smoother since.


Coat rack – fin!


Planter – fin!

A little crooked, but I’m pretty pleased with how it looks – certainly much better than the cardboard template that sat there for 3 months!


In non-action items, I went for a 2.2km run (slowly increasing the distance), screwed up my knitting (now repaired),

watched a bunch of Midsomer Murders, repaired Joe/Frank’s split work pants and turned that other dress into a skirt (about an hour of hand sewing to go).


Back to SML tomorrow – it is going to be completely nuts for the next couple of months.

I have a couple of small goals for the next couple of weeks – and one of them is to cut back on the snacking. We’ve made a pact that we will cease with the making of bikkies or cakes because we cannot control ourselves in the face of them! These cookies are particularly amazing, the recipe makes tons, and has been part of our downfall.
