Right tired I am ...

but had a productive day and started it off with a little bit of a lounge in bed.

Posted off some parcels that I'd meant to do early in the week, then home and started making cushions and curtains for La Boudoir. It's looking good, new furniture is ordered and hopefully will be with me in a couple of weeks so I need to get on and get the painting done too. I'll post some wee pics tomorrow of how it's going. Oh and finally got a replacement dishwasher - just need to find a handy person to fit it now.

I also got an ADS Tech Instant Music widgit. Brilliant! I've been experiementing tonight and have managed to copy some ole vinyl on to the PC, burn a CD from it and also import it in to my iPod - how cool is that!! and all for a princely sum of less that £40. Bargain I say!! It's going to take a while to copy my whole catalogue but heck it will be worth it. I can then store my vinyl out of the way and keep it until it becomes unseemingly valuable when I will sell it to the highest bidder and live the rest of my life crafting and being a lady of leisure.

Hmm so in the meantime, as I don't have any current pics to share, here's how La Boudoir was prior to it's current makeover.

A bit sad and worried

unfortunately the ole Jelly Baby weekend has had to be cancelled. Poor Tracie managed to tip a pot of boiling water over herself and is currently in hospital. So thoughts are with Tracie and Dave and the boys - sounds so darn painful too - ouuuchhhh T!!!! Hoping you are soon feeling better.

I thought I'd post a piccie of my lovely jewels, got some new ones. It's kind of an obsession as you can probably tell.

Right well off tomorrow. Lots going on with DIY and home improvement type stuff.

Missing my man madly. Just feels like we haven't had too much time together over the summer - not anyone's fault - just how it worked out. This has left me ......................... well I'm much to polite a girl to post here, but needless to say I soooo need to see him soon!

Slam dunk this Funk!

hmmm not quite sure what happened but I've been in a bit of a funk and finding it hard to get myself motivated, hence nothing new on here for quite some time.

Maybe it was hitting my 46 birthday, although I doubt it, or maybe just that I've had a few niggling and bothersome illnesses which have reared their ugly heads again and left me feeling tired. Awh well not to worry, nothing serious in the grand scheme of things.

Sooo I've been busy buying fabrics and doing stuff around the house. My guest bedroom is almost finshed, managed to recover my rocking chair and as you'll see Thai and Toyah seem to approve!!

I also bought some lovely fabrics for my bedroom and I'm about to order some furniture too. Next up was to be the patio but I think it's going to take a lot more ££££'s than I have at the moment so I might just tart up the bathroom. I'd really like it to be a little (emphasis on the little) luxurious treat - we'll see how the cash goes!

Here's a pic of me, me at 46! Don't think I'm doing too badly, well at least my face isn't. Not so convinced about the rest of me lol.
Oh and finally managed to sign up for a photography course starting in September which I'm really looking forward to. Right off to bed for me now. Hopefully I'll not leave it so long before I update this for my squillions of readers - yeah right!
