rosedahlia Sitting at swimming lesson knitting and thinking that I want to scream at the children JUST KICK!!! I could never teach swimming, I would be banned from the pool for foul language! #spentenoughonswimminglessonstosponsoranolympicswimmeranssonno2stillcantswim!! 2d
  •   rosedahlia I must look like a pushy mum @bet567 which I'm not but the teachers are just so oblivious to the laziness of my son! He flashes them a cute smile and gets away with holding on the whole tom! 2d
  •   rosedahlia Time not tom! 2d
  •   bet567 Been there done it a few times!! It is so frustrating , wait till he's 17 and you still want to scream at the teachers coz you know they can do better !!! But hopefully not still at swimming lessons !!! 2d
  •   arabellabags lovely wool what is it @rosedahlia 2d
  •   kettleandthread I took up crochet again thanks to swimming lessons x four kids. I know exactly how you feel! 2d
  •   rosedahlia Do you get the strange stares too @kettleandthread they look at me knitting like I'm bonkers! 1d
  •   rosedahlia Thanks @arabellabags it called Christmas Tree Lights from #afinefishyarns by @andthenshemade I bought it through etsy, but I think Terri might have closed her shop as she is due/had a baby!! Really yummy yarn to knit with though and I'm loving how it is knitting up!!!!! 1d
  •   kettleandthread Yes!!! Don't worry, I'm bonkers too 😬 21h

rosedahlia For the next hour I plan on defrosting in the bath with a glass of fizz, a Christmas mag and Makka Pakka as company!! 2w
  •   heartofcharnwood Watch him, rumour has it he wees in the bath! ;-) 2w
  •   pippaspatch Ohhh I so miss a bath, I've got one in the storage but not in the house yet :( 2w
  •   rosedahlia @heartofcharnwood there's a little person who would love to jump in this bath and who would definitely would wee in it.....if I let her through the door!! 2w

rosedahlia I could also shoot them for wallpapering a ceiling TWICE!!! Oh, that's wallpapering twice and glossing over one layer!!! #notthatimbitter!!! 2w
  •   rosedahlia Ive been steaming for hours!! 2w
  •   madscouser I have been studiously ignoring the ceiling in my kitchen for years - it's wallpapered but with woodchip wallpaper! 2w
  •   rosedahlia I thought I had scraped it quickly @madscouser until I noticed the second layer! That is going to take me ages!! We had woodchip on our first house and it took hours and hours of balancing on a ladder to remove it!! 2w
  •   kitschycoo We have the worst textured wallpaper in our house, I feel your pain 2w
  •   canadianabroad Bastards! 2w
  •   rosedahlia That was definitely one of the words I used @canadianabroad why steaming away at it! 2w

rosedahlia I could cry that someone removed a fireplace of this size!! #uncoveringtreasures #underwallpaper 2w
  •   duckeggthreads That is criminal! Such a shame 2w
  •   rosedahlia I know @duckeggthreads and I don't think the husband is going to be keen to source a replacement!! 2w
  •   forestpoppy We went through lots of similar pain in our last house- so upsetting and time consuming. Now we're in a brand new box with no character and I miss the pain! 2w

  •   indiannadreams I love the cd too as I've no scanner. Looks like you will be busy! 2w
  •   rosedahlia I've got a scanner @indiannadreams but it all goes wrong when you have to enlarge the pattern and I lose all sense of what to do!!! So cd are definitely the way for books to go for me! 2w
