Shed Blog Day 1

Well, basically, I stuffed up. The shed is actually the wrong way round, but its not a major problem. Mark, bless him, has done all the measuring etc as we need to get it insulated etc as there will be a lorra lorra paper in there! It will also be painted white on the inside to reflect light. We have a bit of an issue with electricals, more on that later, but theres lots to do before I can actually move in. Off in a mo with a shopping list for stuff, its probably going to cost an extra £1,000 to get it just right, but theres no point having something that isnt watertight, draughtproof etc etc. Need a good blind too as windows face the sun most of the day! Also a good strong lock and ....and....the list goes on!!

Hope you all have a lovely day! XX

Busy busy day!!

I have been IRONING all day, and clearing my clutter! Mark's sister and her clan are coming to stay for a weekend in 2 weeks, so I have so clear the spare room, which is full to the brim with yes you guessed it, craft stuff!! Shed is arriving tomorrow (weather permitting!) and then we have to put up shelves, cupboards workspace etc. I'm having the workbench around 3 sides with cupboards underneath and shelves on 2 of the walls, one wall with have a huge notice board that I can put cards I get, notes, piccies of David Beckham,,,oooooooooooops I mean Lots of hanging hooks too for hanging tools on. Should be good! Im just hoping I have ordered a big enough one. I will try and remember to take piccies for you. (If I can work out how to blog them!)

Mark has taken the young girl over the road for a drive in her car she has her test coming up and getting as much practise as she can. She did ask me to take her, but I don't feel confident enough!

Ok, I a going to settle down and watch House in a bit, just got to put the clothes away first. I am trying really hard to be more organised, in the hope that I will have more time to do what I want to do. Found a really good site called which is full of inspirational and handy hints.

So....fellow bloggers, what have you been doing today??

Wet and weary.....

...but thankfully not windy!! LOL Just been to the bank and it was drizzling...ghastly weather

Thanks to those of you who have commented on my blog. Its very encouraging and I shall do my best to be regular! Alas, I have not scanned any of my cards lately so cannot show, but will endeavour to do my best...note that I am no longer a brownie, so did not promise!

Well then, what have I been up to?? hmmmm not a lot to be honest. Felling pretty rough with kidney pains so I wallow in it and try and get as much rest as I can, lying down really does help better than anything else. I am due to be zapped again on 9 June. Luckily (!!??) its the left kidney this time as the right one cant take any more! I am also organising a meal for Mark, myself and 16 others for next Saturday. I am collecting orders as it will make life much simpler as we are only going to a small restaurant (its where we held our wedding reception). I am also trying to plan my craft shed WHEN AND IF it ever arrives...(note to shed shop!) Mark said he has a lot to do before I can move in though, insulation, electrical and so on and so on. THEN I can get everything out of hiding and use it!

OK, well done a lot of blog hopping today when I should have been working hard. Haven't left any comments though which is a bit remiss of me, cos I like to get em, so should leave 'em!

Now... I have to go work hard! Take care all...until next time, over n out! XX
