Never rains ...

but it pours. Now one of my precious furbies is feeling a bit under the weather and in need of some surgery. Hopefully it will be routine and he'll bounce back all fine and dandy but both my babies are getting on in years and I do worry about them.

Otherwise I'm hanging on, trying to keep occupied (understatement!) and focus on DOING stuff, any stuff.

Anyone know of a warm desert island going cheap?

Shiney and new ....

Yep, my furniture that is (well not very shiney but heck I wouldn't want it that way!). All lovely and in place now after much sweat and huffing and puffing - it's deceptively solid and heavy!

This is the sideboard (Doh!)

The coffee table, lots of storage you'll notice, and here is my CD storage - took all of them with half of it empty - so I can buy more music lol!!!!

And finally, La Boudoir!! I know it is over the top but it was just exactly what I wanted for my Louis the whatever look.

House is still a bit upside down, my bedroom still has to be painted and I currently have a bath sitting in the spare bedroom. The bathroom is the next project on the hit list! It will be Le Spa (sometimes I just crack myself up I'm soooo silly!!).

I have been taking proper pictures too though, not ones that involve me, the house or cats lol. Maybe I'll dare to share tomorrow.

Tired, tired, tired ...........

I've be hard at it since Friday 1pm. All my new furniture arrived - AT THE SAME TIME! - so I ended up with boxes the size of coffins and bigger in the hall and bedroom with little space to move.

All new furniture now in situ. (much sweat and pushing/shoving, and moving out of all old furntiure) - thanks T and M for picking up surplus stuff!!, boxes broken up and a few journeys to the tip (oh and did you know - and not a lot of people know this!!! I managed to lift old dishwasher in to the back of me Freelander and take it to dump!! Big strong girl I am!!)

Gardens front and back mowed, edges strimmed, bathroom tiles collected and stored ( jez they were heavy little bugg3rs), house kind of cleaned and tidied sooooo phew I'm one tired bunny!

Hopefully will have some pics of new stuff soon. Off to bed for me, it's late and I need my sleep!
