Oh Gosh, as I dust off the dust and open up the windows for an airing!!

I cant believe how long it is since I came visit this little place, and how sad I am that I got out of the habit of blogging and recording bits of my life. 
We have been in the bungalow nearly 3 years now and have finally renovated all the rooms and almost finished the garden. Obviously there are still bits we want to do, and bits that need to be done but in general they are snagging jobs or general maintenance so at long last I can finally start playing with bits of paper in my very own scrap room again.

Yes finally I have my craft room back.

Last week Martin was off and we took a day out to go hit up Ikea. I bought a set of Alex drawers so that I could get rid of the two very old bookcases full of boxes housing all my tools. 

I got a couple of Moppe chests and some more wooden magazine racks 

and then we bought a table top to play hack the Ikea furniture and turn my old expidit into a desk and get rid of my big dining room table that was taking up far too much of the space in the small bedroom. 

Finally a shelf to put all my stamps and embelishments and I have enough room to scrap and to sew.

At the moment I am working three days a week in a local school covering until they appoint a full time teacher, and looking after my youngest grandson Beckett for the other two days of the week. He is a totally different barrel of fish to Finley and is in to everything. Last week he went from refusing to letting go of the furniture or even making any attempt at steps, to walking across the whole room in one go, so now everything moves up another level out of his reach.
