Me on Monday ~ 6

Well hello to the first Monday of July! And I'm happy to report it's not a working Monday for me. I have a day full of catching up to do.  All those things I planned to do on Saturday and didn't get round to.  It's the day the Tour de France comes past this area so many roads are closed in nearby villages.  
So what does a blogger do on her day off?  I'll give you a clue
Well, if she's joining in with Sian's 'Pile of Postcards Exchange' she'll be off to the post office to sort out postage for those going overseas.  And if she's joining in with Fiona's Friendship Quilt, she'll be posting the next block for that too. And as it's her day off, she'll be meeting up for coffee with a friend.  The sun's shining, so the dog may be able to enjoy a nice long leisurely walk later too!
  
Did you have a good weekend?  What a Wimbledon final eh?  For me it was a:
furniture moving, spare room cleaning, paella eating, wine drinking, nursing a husband with 'man flu', tennis watching, kind of weekend. Our son is coming home after 2 years up in Edinburgh and we are desperately trying to make some space for all the 'stuff' he will have accumulated up there.  Which explains the first two things on my weekend list.  His sister seems to have used his room as an overflow wardrobe in his absence and we need to make some space - lots of it.  It's not an easy task I can assure you - I need my Monday 'off' to make up for all the hard work of the weekend! 
 
Linking up with the aforementioned Sian for her 'Me on Monday' meme.

Golly, you are going to need a weekend' s rest by the time you have squeezed all that in! You are well ahead in the creativity stakes too :). Admiring your organisational skills!

Ooh, postcards! Yes, I'm combining trips to the Post Office by parcelling up a quilt square today too. I hope the man flu doesn't last too long and the week turns out to be a good one!

Those two years seem to have flown! When the Pirate graduated in May he had been away 4 years. I kept telling him to purge and condense, he was amazed at how much "stuff" he had when it came move out day @@

Sounds like a super busy weekend - very exciting on the postcard front! I bought some of mine today so I can't wait to get posting. Enjoy spending time with your son! X

I dropped my postcards in the mail this week, too, along with my face in the world swap faces and (unfortunately) a sympathy card.
