Summer's over..

I had planned to post more Birmingham pics, but after the holidays, life quickly passed that by.
Meanwhile, like I already said in the previous post, the house got empty when Baking DD moved out to do a 6 month internship at a posh hotel in Oxford, UK.
It's an old prison built somewhere between 1000 and 1100 (if I recall correctly) and according to DD it's amazing.
We app, we Skype, we call, but I truly miss her, since she was home most of the summerholidays.
But most important thing is, that she's doing fine!

Haven't quilted or sewn in weeks, I thought it time to start doing something. I had the intention of finishing those wallhangings that are laying around, made to try a technique/pattern or just because I felt like making it.
  One more is done, scrappy/dotty circles, inspired by Freddy Moran is quilted, bound and is even allready on my quiltroom wall as a last bright leftover from summer


 One more down, a few left to go...

Since today was my day off, I had time to do some (delayed) chores, like vacuuming, cleaning the kitchen, dust, and more nasty stuff. It's pouring outside and temps dropped consideratly; a sure sign the long summer is really over and autumn is at the doorstep.
Time to put up some autumn decor!

Technology

A friend is on a trip and made a whatsapp group to keep others informed of her where-abouts and added me. Someone else is turning 50 soon and made a whatsapp group to keep everyone updated on the planning of the festivities. I.m part of that group.
Baking DD left the country last saturday for her internship in Oxford UK. She'll be gone for 6 months and made a whatsapp group to keep us informed. Group 3.
( and being in such a group means you get every message of every groupmember..)

Then there's Google play. Yes, I downloaded a game and presently I'm at level 97 which is undoable. Oh wait, just got extra time for this level. (because I suck and I need it or I'm doing great and I get a reward?? No ofcourse it is so I can waste one more minute of my life playing)

Ah, another friend found out I have a new Phone with whatsapp and decides to chitchat.
 Wait! I get a message that I need to update all my updates.

What's that bleep? Ah, my alarm will go off, 16 hours from now. (sooooo, 17 hours from now, I'm expected at work....)
 
I think I need a nap. Alone.
