Time To Get Back On Board...

We are now in to the middle of January, I have signed up to a swap via Tracy at , so that I am sort of forced into the land of blogging again!! I really needed to escape for a while, get my brain into gear, sort things out (well, pretend to!!) and start here goes...this is what I call a new start!!!!.......

It's a bit chaotic here to say the least...bedroom is being re-plastered,

 so you can imagine how my house is looking at the moment!! Just for a few weeks, our bedroom is on the landing, in the spare room and the bathroom!!  At the same time, we have had the hall ceiling plastered too...

When the radiator was removed, I found this bit of vintage paper, shame it was only a scrap, but I thought it was fab, so it has joined my heap of much for a clear out!!
I have soooooo much decorating to do next week, it's scary....but I will have some help from a good friend, so it's not all bad!! 
On the garden front, my chooks had been looking a bit worse for wear before Christmas, but they now seem to be perking up a bit and getting some colour back into their combs...which makes me smile... :)

As mentioned above, I have also joined in a swap, and my swap partner is Kimbereley at  and she seems to be much more organised than me!! I could really do with some of that sunshine they are having over in New Zealand!!  Well, I'll get off here now as I'm being stared at by my two computer screen friends..
so I'm off to get this first swap of the year on the go!!


  1. Wow! What a busy time, it's amazing how much upheaval these things cause. We are starting a bit if DIY from February, just wish there were more hours in the day! I've gone swapping mad and signed up for three swaps xx

  2. ugh! i cannot imagine the mess going on inside with home improvements! :)

  3. Wow that looks like a lot of work and mess but when it is done it will be beautiful. Your chickens sure look plump and happy.

    Hugs Diane

  4. Hmm a very big job but sure it will be well worth it when done. xx

  5. Good luck with the decorating. We were in the same state last November with our bedroom being redecorated and one wall in the lounge being repaired back to bare wall after the incident with the pigeon down the chimney!. Hugs Mrs a.


Thanks for looking in, hope you have time to write a small comment.....:)
