If it fits in the toaster......


Remember the last time I showed you the front of my house? The new bit had no roof. Now it's got one, and it's been knocked through and it's (almost) plastered!!! As are the three bedrooms upstairs (by the end of today anyway).....because we thought "why not trash the upstairs of the house to match the downstairs?", (dead co-ordinated I am), and then live like that for about 2 months. And why not take out the gas supply to the cooker while you're at it, nothing wrong with pork scratchings and beer for tea, (not joking, I only left out we had crisps for dessert, because we're posh) though the vegetarian children are struggling with the concept. Whingers. (Actually I wish I cut off the gas to the cooker years ago, but best not tell anyone that bit!) And radiators? Totally overrated in my opinion. "And is that digging in the back garden ?" I hear you ask politely, Oh yes, that would be the foundations for the rear extension (Oo-er madam!). Without the front or upstairs being finished? Paa! I laugh in the face of finished!!!!

Surprisingly enough I'm not writing this while rocking in a corner, mostly because I can't find a clean one.....

So you can see why it's been a bit quite on the bloggy/craft front, been just a bit too dusty to do much else other than think, and that's no bad thing! Because now I've got a plan. Yes, another one. I want to carry on with the bits and pieces I normally do but I want to diversify into making some skirts, printed most probably, not in any massed produced kind of way, all individual and lovely. The idea has been bubbling away for ages, waiting for it's turn to escape the "ain't got time for that you fool!" box in the back of the brain, and now it just feels like the right time to go back to the old pattern cutting roots. I say now, but you know that's the elasticated craft version of now don't you!

Just keep telling yourself that it will all get better soon :) I thought that you might find amusement from the fact that the word verification is 'dissefuc'. Made me laugh anyway!

Yay - one of the funniest blog posts I've read recently! I know it's impossible to craft in building rubble but I still can't wait to see your new skirts!

"...and it's (almost) plastered!!!" I am amazed you're not almost plastered with all that happening!!

Oh yes, Indian Standard Time version of 'now'!! I know it only too well.

The veggie kids can always eat carrots and celery... and nuts and berries foraged from er, next door's garden!!

Soooo glad you're back... and still posh as ever. Why you're a role model you are, in the posh department. Tho' crisps for dessert is possibly a little too posh for the likes of me.
