Ridiculously Happy!
Sorry to have been AWOL for so long and thank you to those people who enquired where I was and how the move went.  My life has been non-stop since we moved...and yes, it finally happened on 31st March. Almost everything went to plan with just a small hiccup...

DD3 on vocals and DS2 out of shot accompanying her on guitar. She says this was an off day but her voice still sends shivers down my spine. Very proud of my talented kids.

Decluttering and Socialising
I've been busy decluttering most of the day, I'm a natural born hoarder when it comes to books, craft magazines and crafting materials. Somehow I'm managing to cast aside about 2/3 of the stuff I've acquired over the years. There are some things, like my or...

Time Flying By
Has a whole week really passed since I last posted? And are we really in the last week of January 2017 already? With all that's happening this year I can see time flying by at an incredible speed. On the house front, we've had the contracts though for the s...
