I'm home ..... and what a nice surprise!!!

Happy Wednesday,

It's a little on the wet and windy side over here today, perfect weather for spending the day in the old craft room .... if I could get in there that is!!
What with starting to pack up the stuff that's already in there, things that I'm not using, or won't be needing in the next couple of weeks (yeah! try figuring that out!!) and trying to find homes for all the new stash that somehow keeps finding it's way over to the island (funny that!) I'm not getting very far!!  As for a workdesk, well ..... finding the desk itself would be good, never mind a space large enough to work on!  Oh well, it'll all be over soon ..... hopefully!

I'm trying to get back into the swing of things after my weekend away ...... thank you for all your birthday wishes by the way, I had a fab day.  Saw the family in the morning, did the whole cards and presents thing.  Then I got on a plane and spent the next four days in the company of my bestest friends and fellow craft addicts down at the IndigoBlu Retreat in Retford, Nottinghamshire.  Check out the IndigoBlu blog to see some of what we got up to .... my DT buddy, the lovely Nikki was also on the retreat and she's blogged one of her projects already.
Unfortunately I can't show you mine just yet, as they're being shipped over for me .......more room in the suitcase for shopping .... not that I did much (and if you believe that you'll believe anything!)  Silly me didn't take any photos before I left either!!!!

So ..... it's back to normal now.  I've conquered the mountain of washing that was waiting for me, re-stocked the fridge, got the kitchen tidy, unpacked, read and answered all my emails, caught up with Facebook ...... phew!!! Now it's time to craft!!

I was so thrilled to see that while I was away my number of followers reached the 200 target (201 infact!) ..... whoo hoo!!!!
A big Hello and Welcome to the latest ones amongst you ..... thank you so much for taking the time to visit my little piece of Blogland, it manes a lot!
It also means that it's time to do the draw for the Giveaway ...... I'll make it first job on this week's 'To Do' list.  Check back later to see which one of you it is that will be receiving my little gift.

Well, as much as I'd love to stay and chat I really should get a move on ..... DT stuff to do, Blog challenges to enter ..... that 'To Do' list to make a start on!
I also went to see a Physio this morning who's given me exercises, stretches and stuff to do 3 times a day, which should be fun!  I've been suffering with my hands for a while now,  and apparently I have Carpal Tunnel ....... if it means I can enjoy my time in the old craft room I'll try anything!

Thanks for popping by ..... sorry there's nothing to look at, I am working on that.

Cheerio until next time



  1. You have been such a busy lady but glad to hear you had a great time at the retreat, I look forward to seeing your creations. Hope the physio helps! Hugs, Anne xx

  2. Congrats on reaching 201 followers! And happy belated birthday ... sounds like you celebrated in style! :) xx
