Exciting decorating news!

I'm very excited dancing around whooping excited to be exact. We are decorating, wait for it.................our bedroom!!!!!
Why so? I hear you ask.
Well I've lived in my house for a very, very long time (27 years) and the only decoration my bedroom has ever seen is a quick lick of paint on the walls........26 years ago.
Yeah you heard right 26 YEARS!
Children have been born raised and left home. 
Pets and an ex have come and gone and other rooms have been redone numerous times.
So this is big, really BIG.
A new bed is on it's way, there's a time limit, 3 weeks.
So the to do list looks like this.
Remove fire
Strip woodchip off the walls yuk!
Dip the doors
Get a new carpet laid
New radiator
Lots to do but it's going to be fantastic.
here's Lovely Man getting stuck in.

The eagle eyed amongst you may be wondering why there is a sock on the top of the door?
It's to stop the door rattling in the night when we have the window open!

Howrd's not sure about any of it.
The fireplace is staying but that fire has to go!

Check out that gorgeous carpet, see the tape on it that's where the hoover ate it!

Meanwhile on the crafting front I'm squealing with excitement as I knit up my first item of clothing made from my own dyed and spun yarn.
Oh my it's turning out even better than I'd hoped.
Not telling what it is yet, you'll have to wait and see.

So 2013 has started off at full speed for me, how about you have you launched into any large exciting projects, do tell would love to hear.


  1. You are certainly having an exciting start to the year! I love the fireplace in your room - it looks fabulous :) Can't wait to see the room once it's finished...however, I am really eager to see what you are knitting on those needles!

Things are looking up!

Well hello! I'm a little bit back and it feels good! So what have I been doing? Weeeeeeel alot of things have happened since we last spoke. Let's have a round up. 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 …

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