I have to share this!

seriously I'm smitten by this site
I'm not going to tell you what it is but you wont regret taking a look!! Some of you may already know it ..... isn't it great?!!
Let me know what you think :)))

Kitchen update

following a windfall a few months back we decided our top priority was a new kitchen. The timing was just right as our oven was starting to lean alarmingly to the left and we had suffered a leak behind the units (undetected for goodness knows how long)!! Also Homebase had their summer sale on AND a further 15% off the weekend we bought it :))
The pic below shows the 'dining room - but mostly Heathers craftroom & laundry' separated from the kitchen by an enormous 'breakfast bar - cum - dump area'

next is the tiny U-shape kitchen minus the tiles & wall units already. This is when we discovered the gas pipes from the boiler in the garage were hidden behind the old wall units & now they needed to be moved so we could fit our new chimney hood above the new oven & hob!!
next is Jake having a go at lifting the old floor tiles

Believe it or not the next pic is of the first of the new units & the oven in place - gas pipes moved!
(hardboard sheets on the floor ready for some lino)

and finally the extended kitchen area to make one big kitchen/diner.
LOVING the colour we chose for the walls.

Its way off finished but its already a massive improvement on the old one :)))
Thanks for looking xx

Better late than never!

Oooookay I know its November ........... but look at his little face!

Because I was such a lazy ***** last month I didn't get to share this pic. It was a date well worth noting as it was the
1oth minute of the
10th hour of the
10th day of the
10th month 0f the
10th year of the new millenium!!!
I hope to make a layout for this photo too - one for posterity :)
Thanks for looking xx

JYC 2010

its getting to look a lot like Christmas!!

I've decided to jump into another class from the lovely Shimelle. This time its her Journal Your Christmas class which I've shied away from in previous years as I get overwhelmed the nearer xmas gets especially working in a card & gift shop!! Hopefully I can learn to make notes & take lots of candid shots to help me describe our lives at this lovely time of year :))
I have already made one error though :(
I got carried away with the title on the cover....I didnt need to put all that..... why didnt I think to put just JYC 2010!!! Nevermind its done now lol. Ive made some pages & got lots of embellishments ready to use as & when I need them - I just hope that i can keep up with this one as it will be a lovely book to look at again over the years.
Im off to decide what photos to show you of my new kitchen (not quite complete but getting there!) so I'll blog again soon xx
