Sorry I've forgotten all about drawing the name out for my 200th post giveaway. I promise I'll do it later in the week. I've also got to get together the other bits for the giveaway. I haven't finished my Mini Spring Blooms quilt swap yet either but that should get finished and into the post later in the week too.
We were at Scout camp over the weekend so I didn't have any time then. It was worth it though, the kids had a good time. One of my Beavers thought the Bell boating they did on Saturday was 'awesome'. That sums it up really!

I've been busy today. I've done something I've not done for absolutely ages and that is clean the oven. It isn't perfect but it is a lot better than it was. Don't you just hate cleaning the oven?
The other thing I've done is recover my headboard for my bed. I bought a remmant in John Lewis for £7.50. I've only used half of it so the new cover cost the princely sum of £3.50.
We've got a visitor this week as well. SofM's girlfriend is staying until Thursday. She comes from Edinburgh and they met at uni and they are doing the same course. I hope she has a nice stay.

Sounds like you've been pretty busy. I wish someone would come clean my oven and windows.

Cleaning the oven is something that I do almost at gunpoint.
I have used all kinds of miracle oven cleaners" and none of them really work for me. I just have to grit my teeth every now and again and give it a good old scrub out.
Funnily enough I can never remember my grandmother or her generation ever cleaning out their oven - perhaps because they used it at least twice every single day and sometimes used quite high temperatures to cook certain things then the debris got burnt away.
