Tales of the unexpected!

I thought I'd spend the weekend pottering around.
A bit of gardening, a bit of crochet ( I'm busy writing out my little sailing boat pattern)
maybe a walk by the sea.
Ahhh noooo!

You see we've decided to replace our rather ancient carpet with a lovely new floor.
Yeah that's right. 
So how come your dining room is in uproar? I hear you ask.

Well it's because of the fireplace.
We didn't want a hole in the wall anymore.
Let's block it up we said. Won't take long.

Good idea, looks good too.

Then there was the archway through to our kitchen. 
Not the most professional piece of work!

So THAT needed some work on it too.
See how the mayhem grew!
But LOOK at that picture rail.
D'you see the bit over the arch, not wood, nooooo, that my friends is plaster!
How clever is my Lovely Man. 
He made a little former and ran a new length.

Of course Howard was very helpful all weekend.
So, lots of dust, lots of mess and no hooking....... 
........At All, not even a little bit.
Hope your weekend was filled with fun!


  1. I think you overwork that cat :O)) Hope you're seeing the benefits of all the DIY and enjoying your lovely dining room again. Have a great week x

I spent quite a few months coping with fatigue and depression which meant a bit of a standstill with  pretty much everything. Glum times. Life was quiet, slow, gentle. I had to be careful and kind to myself but gradually I felt better found my energy and got back to normal ish. I found gardening and crochet two of the most therapeutic things to do. But the most restorative activity I've been enjoying is, well take a little look.

 The Right Honourable Hector Albert Schnauzer

Possibly the happiest dog in the world.

He certainly make me happy, Who knew I'm a dog person! If you want to reduce your stress levels get a Hector! I thought long and hard before getting him, found a kennel club breeder and have spent a long time socializing and training him, he's been a complete joy so responsive and eager to learn. Just the …

Five Photo Friday

Last weekend saw another trip to the woods,  more beautiful bluebells and wild flowers.  It's so wonderful spending time outside in Nature.

I've also been spinning some gorgeous merino. Nice and thin!

Topped off with a little crochet play in the sunshine. Whilst I recover from my day out in the woods!  Yeah a whole week to get over one trip, Chronic Fatigue is RUBBISH!

Still least I can sit in my beautiful garden. How's your week been, what have you all been making, doing, enjoying? Do tell! Love ♥Sue♥

Half term, it's been too short. It's been all about these gorgeous boys. Beautiful Brodie, two weeks today.

And Finlay the most fantastic two year old EVER! That's true, cos I'm his Nana. ♥
Finlay's birthday cake. Just so you all know, I'm never making a Thomas cake again, fiendishly tricky!

 We also spent some time checking out Storm Brian. Very stunning he was too.

That's it, end of another holiday. Roll on Christmas then!!!!! Love ♥Sue♥
