Oh My Goodness!

The plans and organisation have paid off! We have a back yard again, and can now get someone in to fix the decking! There was four cubic meters of stuff hauled away to the tip, and a trunk load of stuff (books, clothing, board games) went to the local Vinnies.

The cull feels so good! Next to pull down all the stuff in the roof and assess!

In other news, I received the most wonderful card from the recipient of the Purple Percy Shawl, and she loved it! I’m so relieved and happy that it made it safely to her, and that she likes it!

Have some more local sites taken on the phone. The handiest camera I own!



Off to a roaring start!

It’s a new year, it’s a fresh start, and as I do most years about this time, I’m culling all the clutter in the house (Himself and I may, or may not have hoarding tendencies). With the pulling down and storing of the xmas tree for the next 11 months, I have played some furniture tetris, and rearranged the living room to give us more space. The Studio is next! (Vinnies usually do quite well out of this process)

I hope everyone’s New Year celebrations were wonderful and you’ve begun the new year with a sense of purpose and determination! *grins* Our celebrations included Raspberry and Vodka martinis!

So far this year I find myself on a health kick, and I’ve lost 6 kilos since the beginning of December! Who loses weight over the holidays?!? Who though that having an iphone would help me lose weight?

I have put myself back in school and am studying for the first time in years! This could be interesting, as being a student was never my strong point; much as I love learning. First assignment is due, and I have to keep on track!

There is a new day job which is wonderful in it’s ability to pay me. Not to mention filling my afternoons, leaving my mornings free for study.

But I won’t be abandoning you little blog and my three faithful readers! I’ll still be able to regale you with all the crafty things I’m up to, and hopefully a little more information about what’s in store for the shop in the coming year!

And so this post isn’t completely dry, here’s a local hibiscus I spotted while getting fit


And these are the socks I’m working on.


Eye bleeding! Aren’t they?! *grins*
