snow....oh no!

Well, the snow has arrived....more predicted for tomorrow....the little people think they're gonna get a day off... there better not be enough to close the schools, I am suddenly inundated with work again!
...shame I was so organised with the Christmas cards...I prefer this design...hey ho too late now...that's why I hate being early with stuff, I always change my mind!

very productive

On Thursday we painted the little man's bedroom....on Friday the bed arrived and was built by Neil ... On Saturday our lovely joiner Stuart (who only came to fix the garage) fitted the wardrobes and on Sunday I spent all day making curtains and cushions and stuff and filling the super organised wardrobes with STUFF.

Been catching up on my work tonight...sewing-with a bottle of beer in front of the telly...vowed not to watch I'm A Celebrity this year but I just can't help myself...

girls night

There are 5 of us who've been friends like for ever and always do girls night on a Wednesday - nothing thrilling, usually one of us cooks then we sit around and moan all night and leave at bang on 10 o'clock!
Now we have 10 kids between us it keeps us sane!
I was sooo glad to get out of the house and go last night....the kids had built the train set ...which covered the entire floor of the living room. They were arguing over all the bits and proper screaming at each other....then Neil decided to bring his mountain bike in "to fix" (clearly the freezing cold garage was no good for this job!)
I made a quick exit and hot footed it to Joanne's for veg chilli, chocolate and moaning!
Felt much better!
Of course this morning the train set is still there and so is the bloody bike....but peace has been restored (they're all out!)

major disappointment

I was sooo looking forward to today....finally finished the womenswear that's been hanging around like a black cloud and I was gonna do LOADS of new spring summer work for my agent.....
Until the bloody wireless router decided to die on me....
2 trips to pc world, 2 different new routers, lots of swearing and roughly 5 hours on the phone stressfully trying to get it sorted and I'm back on line!
What a crap day!
And the weather has been awful!!!!
Oh well....all sorted now....spring summer tomorrow, bed now :-)

light at the end of the tunnel

Another VERY busy week....but I've finished my accounts (which the accountant has been nagging me for since May!) nearly finished the dreaded women's wear....and finished these for Aaliyah and Alara's christening that we're going to today.....
No I didn't make the bunnies, I'm not that daft! Bought them from muji and customised them!
Gonna get that work finished tomorrow then on to some lovely lovely work for my agent next week....spring summer 2012 here we come woohoo!!
