Changing the bed, nursery and meet you at the abbey.

I am told by a reliable source that 3BT has been mentioned in the latest issue of Writing Magazine -- so if you've come in from there, welcome.

1. To pull the sheets off the bed, rip open the duvet poppers and drag the stout pillows from their cases.

2. People keep asking if the nursery is ready. It's certainly full of stuff, but 'ready' is pushing it a bit. I roll up my sleeves and go in -- unpacking bags and boxes, checking age labels and matching like with like. We now have a box of toys, a pile of bedding for the wash and a shelf of changing kit.

3. The last Downton Abbey. Drama! Intrigue! Dresses! Revenge! We watch it live for once -- the interminable ad breaks are perfect for catching up with the quips and commentary on Twitter.


  1. So love poppered much of it has buttons now! Where do you go for yours?

  2. I think this set came from BHS -- but it was a long time ago!

    With buttoned bedding, we always start at opposite ends and race to the middle!

  3. I hope you didn't mind me mentioning you in my Novel Ideas column in Writing Magzine. It was because of a comment you made about half an hour making a hole in the work. Since I first read that I keep reminding myself it. It's so true.

  4. Hi Lynne

    Not at all! I feel very honoured to be in Writing Magazine. I'm very glad you did mention me, and I can't wait to get my mitts on a copy.

    There does seem to be a recurring theme on this blog of me tricking myself into doing tasks!

  5. I have 2 young kids myself. Your talk about setting up the nursery brings back such good memories. Thank you. It's been a couple years since we've needed a nursery but I remember it well.
