Bear Chose!

Bear is getting too big for his trainers.  We had a trip out today to get him new ones.  We couldn't find any that were reasonably priced until we went to H&M and bear chose these.

As you can tell, they didn't stay in the box very long.  Bear also managed to persuade DH that he needed some mirrored sunglasses.  I can really understand that.

I have been lazy today, and I have been tearing up a duvet cover.  I bought this

It's a reversible duvet cover, two metres square, which cost £10 and I wanted the navy side of the fabric for the first attempt to cover the arms of the sofa (project pending).  Today I ripped the pale blue side into strips around an inch or so wide to use on the lucet.  I am now coughing and the laptop I was sitting at is covered with a layer of fluff.  Next time I shall rip it outside.  However I have luceted (if that's the right word) almost half of it already and I'll post a picture when I've finished.

Bear was allowed (somewhat against my better judgement) to watch A Study in Pink, a Sherlock episode with Benedict Cumberbatch.  Now he has gone to bed with some of the original Sherlock Holmes stories.  I don't expect him to be able to read them, but I do expect him to be incredibly annoying about it for some time.

justjill - both DH and I laughed out loud at your comment!  Did you see the post where I thought it was a good idea to buy 90 ties (yes, ninety)?  One day I shall learn my lesson!


  1. If you are looking for a project to use up your 90 ties, do a search for "Dresden plate quilt using ties". I think it will be a fun project.

  2. I shall be looking at duvet covers in an entirely different way from now on....even...probably to use as curtain material-x-

  3. Good luck with the project! Love the Sherlock episodes. Middle son 'made' me watch them and I'm glad he did.
