I bid on and won a remarkably inexpensive bedset that would be perfect for curtains for my bedroom. They were exactly what I had been looking for - in the photo. In reality they are yellow. I do not like yellow. It grates on me. I definitely could not manage in a bedroom with mainly yellow curtains.
I'll use the flannel sheets that came with them (though I'll consider dyeing them as I can't cope with yellow sheets) to keep the beds warm in winter. I am not sure whether to donate, re-sell or use the duvets for practice as the previous stash of scrap fabric that is only fit for practice is a lot less than it used to be.
Also, bear only got a mildly awesome report at parents' evening so we have had Words and he is having to earn his treat for a good report. He is doing well, really, though, so I am actually very proud.
On the bright side, my writer's block seems to have faded so if you are interested then I should be able to share something soon. If you feel like writing yourself you can have a look at the latest Light and Shade Challenge and see if it inspires.
