I must thank every one for the lovely birthday wishes, cards and gifts too ... some decided to go the scenic route first before they got to the mouse house ..lol Michelle sent me some lovely fabric from Sparklies which took ages to get here (mind you it didn't help that the post code was a teeny bit wrong ..) so it was a good job she posted early, as it arrived the day before my big day :) and a couple of cards from friends who have known where the mouse house is for years also had the wrong post codes on ... must be catching heheheheheh... good job my postie knows me ...lol
Jo sent me a beautiful stitched mouse card ... which is on my mantelpiece with my other cards and I haven't photographed it yet .... whoops ...
June sent me a gorgeous stitched needlebook with a wee mouse on it and a bobbin and some scissors on it as well as pink polka dot tin full of goodies and a wee notebook and cards. Chris and Wendy got me a kit of a tall pincushion holder to make and something else that hadn't arrived before my big day and Chris had also knitted me a snood and some matching finger-less gloves which has come in very handy with the weather we have been having in a lovely soft wool ... not photographed either as I wasn't doing a selfie heheheh.... Bev's is an IOU as she has not been well and it wasn't finished .... sooo my birthday is extended wooo hooo .... from the family I got some headphones to go with my boom box I got for Christmas and a lovely flake birthday cake ..... some gorgeous flowers and pennies to spend on something that takes my fancy when I see it :) Oooo I feel a browse around the internet coming on ...lol
My boss also got me some chocolate and wine for my birthday ... I can share out the chocolate if you want some but the wine is mine hahahah....
OOO the kettle has just boiled ... off to go and make a cuppa for every one ...
here you go and some cookies too ....
Well we have been doing some more to the new mouse house and tomorrow all being well my sink is going to be taken out and popped onto a new work top and re plumbed as the pipe from it is lead .... once that is done I can paint the shelves and after much consideration and consultation with the DH I have decided to paint the fireplace with the proper black paint rather than try and take the old crackled paint off as it is too much of a job to be honest .... and I want to get into my room and get it sorted ....
Apart from DD1's room and the top of the hallway .. all the paper is off the walls and they are ready to be sized before paper going back on .....any one fancy giving me a hand ..lol .. we have had to buy more masonry paint for DH's side of the basement and he has started to paint that today sooo all in all things are going almost to my schedule ...lol
Stitching wise I have been busy on Sally's RR ... its going slower than normal as I am having to stitch the opposite to the way I normally do ... that and I don't want to make any mistakes(personalize) with it not being mine ... DJ has just done her bit on mine and its up on her blog if you want to bob over and go and have a peep ... its soooo cute :)
And that my dears is all the news from the mouse house this week sooo I will bob up the photos for you :)
