Well this last week is a wee bit of a blur with being soooo busy with work and getting the room sorted ....I didn't go to Chris's on Tuesday as she was poorly so DH and I went down to the new mouse house to do a bit more on it .... DH painted out the storage room while I was polishing the furniture that we got moved ... luckily with it being empty * for now;) it was easy to move ....
Saturday saw me tootling round the office supply shop for a pair of matching filing cabinets for under my work top and the nice guys let me have some for a decent price ... they loaded them up in the mouse mobile for me and when I got to the house DD2's fiance (sp) was just pulling up sooo I borrowed his muscles to get them into my room ... well you just have too don't you ...lol
I pottered around for a couple of hours touching up the paint where we had done some work ... tried out my rocking chair and my new fleece blankie and thought yes I can see myself falling asleep in this .... and measuring out the gap for the work top and the other big filing cabinet .... must have done a good job as it all fitted together no problem with room to spare woooo hoooo ....
I have taken some progress photos for you as promised and hopefully with a fair wind and good sails I will get my all my craft stuff over this week ... a few boxes at a time in my boot .....then I can at least sort out at my leisure ...
I was sat stitching on Sally's RR last night doing great when I ran out of the thread for the last couple of words .... agghhhhhh .... what was a girl supposed to do except nip to hobbycraft the next morning to get a thread ....ohhh my they had lots of nice fabric on offer and other stitchy goodies ..... any hooo I digress ... I was sat stitching when I heard a rustling noise ..... I sat very still thinking I was going to see a wee head pop up out of the boxes or something when ..... a butterfly came towards me and landed on my arm .... bearing in mind this is February and it was about 11.00 pm ... well I tried to get it out as it would have killed itself going into the lights and in the process managed to actually get a couple of decent shots when it was still ... (I did manage to get it out btw) still can't believe that it was in my room and obviously been there a wee while as DD2 mentioned at least three weeks ago that one had flown in and actually I didn't believe it to be honest ... whoops .....
I was pottering round the garden today as it was a lovely day , the sun was out and the sky was a pretty blue and I took some photos of the snowdrops in my neighbour's garden and the crocus too ... while I was there my gray doves where in the tree sooo I managed to get a good photo of one of them at any rate ....heheheh
right I had better pop some photos up for you .... and then I will be off to the land of nod ....
