Well folks I hope we can safely say that spring had arrived. Glorious blue sky, washing on the line, windows open and stinking of bleach and Zoflora doing my spring cleaning. Pillows & bed linen washed, mattresses vacuumed and turned and what seems to be a never ending amount of doors and skirting boards being washed down lol. Got to love days like this especially when the house is empty and you can just get on with it.

Well its been a busy auld week here so just trying to catch up by posting some pics to give an idea of what's been happening.
I've been abandoned by the husband and step daughter, kept busy at work and kept company of an evening by my kitty and a multitude of friends.
I've got some yummy new stamps and paints all ready and waiting to be opened so will hopefully get some crafting time this weekend. Woohoo...
For the moment though. .. time to get the head down for a few hours and sort some work out as had a late start to the day because I was watching the eclipse. The clouds provided perfect coverage allowing a better view during the odd clearance and I even managed to get a few pics.
Hope you all have a fabulous weekend planned.

Oh my.. my poor hubby's home town turned white a few days ago.. known as Surf City Huntington Beach is usually host to blue skies, warm temperatures, surfers and volleyball players.
However a few days again there was a freak hail storm which turned the yellow sands white as somewhere in the region of 1 inch of hail fell. Considering they were lucky if they had a weeks worth of rain over the whole of last year.. yeah you read right.. over a year! It's easy to understand why this white covering was not what anyone expected to see.
To say that hubby was upset would be a slight understatement lol.

G'day all.. well oh well what a day it turned out to be yesterday. Got a stinking headache in the morning that had turned to a stonking migraine by the afternoon and my vision was rough by the time I got home. Came straight in the door, changed my clothes, ate some meds and went straight to bed. Woke briefly just after 8 pm, wee bite to eat and back to bed again. Just taken some more meds and hopefully once I awaken in morning all will be back to normal.
Anyway, things were non stop in the shop today with lots of deliveries and the van getting loaded for the ICHF show starting tomorrow at the SECC. The show runs from Thurs till Sun and Donald will be there on stand G 22 so if you're going along be sure to pay him a visit.
Obviously the shop will be open as normal so if you fancy seeing our whole range then please pop along and say hi. I'll be in the shop tomorrow and Saturday as it's always a busy time for us with people visiting the show who also come along and stock up on everything they've not been able to get there.
Shop opening hours are
Mon - Sat
9.30am - 5.30pm
12 noon - 4pm
Looking forward to seeing you soon

Out shopping today and found this little beauty that stands about 16-18" high. Would never have paid £30 for it but at only £6 I couldn't resist.. now I need to find some nice material and start planning the creative makeover.. heaven forbid it remain in its current form lol
