Busy doing nothing!!!




That's what it feels like at the moment. I am rushing around, trying to keep afloat and just keeping my head above water. Went out for a while today and came back to find my kitchen covered in dust where the builders were working outside next to an air vent. Cleaned it all up and stuck a piece of card over the vent! ( how handy does white hammered card get!) I know it is just a taste of what is to come, but I wasn't prepared for it just yet. BUT as you can see from the pics, things are moving along quite nicely and today we have some floor joists!!! Welcome to my dining room!!!
Chris is at home this week and we have been playing out tin the garden for most of the day. The children seem to love their new trampoline and we were kept very busy attacking the ivy that has overtaken the trellis on one side of the garden. We are slowly cutting back, digging it out and replacing the trellis with fencing.....Amelia has this habit of using the trellis like a ladder!! HMMMM....if only I knew then what I know now!!
No crafting as such today apart from a bit of knitting but I do have to tell you where I very briefly stopped by at the weekend!!!! After dropping Jack off at a birthday party, we had about 30 minutes to kill before Amelia's party started...so I persuaded Chris to drive around the industrial estate near Rochester Airport to have a quick nosey at OYSTER STAMPS!!! How can this place be so close and me not know about it!!!! (SAD, SAD, SAD!!!) I was like a kid in a sweet shop so many lurvly goodies to see .Unfortunatley time was against me BUT I will go back very soon when the kiddies are ot with me!!! A little cuttlebug machine is calling my name!!!

Oh Adele, I sympathise over the dust - no joke! But the extension is taking shape, isn't it? which is encouraging. Good for you finding Oyster stamps - and, yes, you definitely need to re-visit.

Your extension is really coming along Dingle! That stamp shop sounds like a fab find! I have a cuttlebug machine and I love it. I bought it when my sidekick got a die jammed in it! Seemed like a good excuse to me!
