Almost done

Evening all on what has been another dry day here and what a pleasant change it's been having a few dry days where I've been able to get the washing out to dry instead of the miserable downpours of the last month. The kids have been out playing around the estate so it's especially nice it being dry this weekend as it's a the local Glasgow Fair Weekend so lots of people having a wee extra day off work tomorrow.

Anyway.. the last few days have been topsy turvy as I'm still trying to adapt to Rob being off on Fridays and working Saturdays as my schedule is interrupted having him at home when I'm not used to it but we'll get there. I was pretty busy on Friday so he entertained himself quite a bit of the day (didn't even get the shopping done) then yesterday just flew by and we had to do the weekly shop at tea time as the cupboards were a bit bare. Today started off relaxed with a lie in then Rob cleaned both cars whilst I cleaned the house. We popped out for a coffee and ended up having it with our neighbours who we bumped in to at the coffee house so was nice to sit and have a wee chat and tonight I've grouted the table that Rob's currently refurbishing. Amazing what a strip of the wood and replacement of the tiles can do to the appearance to an old tired looking table. Now come tomorrow I should get some quiet time again whilst he puts a coat or two of beeswax on it then it will be done and ready for use.

Got some more things I really should tackle tomorrow too like dying my hair seeing as the greys are starting to poke through and that beloved job of searching online for car insurance quotes seeing as my renewal notice has just came in and got a few orders that need packing ready for posting first thing Tuesday. Which when I mentioned the post.. I was shocked the last few days too.. On Thursday I posted 4 2nd class parcels.. 2 of which arrived on Friday and the other 2 were delivered yesterday.. I'm not entirely convinced any of them would have arrived quicker had I sent them 1st class so good on Royal Mail.. They have shocked me with their service and hope that it continues.

Well.. Seeing as it's now 11.30pm and I'm snuggled on the sofa in my pj's, I'm off to watch some tv for a wee hour (maybe two. Lol) then I'll be heading to bed so will bid a 'goodnight' to all and will post a pic of the finished table tomorrow. Will even take the pic in daylight so you can see it properly. Toodles for now.

Love 'n' hugs

Shortbread day

Afternoon all and sorry it's been a while but between births, deaths and marriages I've been kept pretty busy the last wee while. With normal life and work on top of that it's been rather busy around the old Robertson household.

Anyway, today I needed to take some time out as my eyelids are so heavy they feel like they've got lead weights attached so I decided to do some baking and what was on the agenda.. Shortbread. Well my mum's been waiting on a batch for a week now and my friends dad was buried yesterday and he asked for some too so thought I'd make some up today as I'm going to visit tomorrow and can take it with me. The large box is for him and his family, mum can have one of the other tubs and I'll hide one for myself too I think. Lol

Being the very good girl that I am the kitchen is all clean ready for dinner when hubby comes home then tonight I need to finish off another wedding stationery order so it can be posted tomorrow and I'm still working on samples for the fabby new Cupcakecrafting cd that will be launching soon. Hopefully I'll get a relatively early night too.. That means before 1am.. Lol as last night I slept for 9hrs solid which is so not me.. I'm normally a 6-7hr girl so batteries are defo in need of a recharge.

Right.. Time to sign off and get back to work otherwise I'll end up with a spill over to tomorrow and I can't have that seeing as I'm going to be slacking off for a few hours visiting. Will try to be a better blogger over the next few days and stop just putting updates on facebook which I seem to have been doing lately! Naughty me. Oops. Sorry.

Bye for now

Love 'n' hugs
