Christmas Wine!

Hi Everyone, a real quicky today, I am so very busy, but wanted to enter the Digistamps4joy challenge with this Super freebie we were given. I have taken ages to get this done, going back and fore when I had some spare time. Lots of things wrong, but as a Christmas card, I hope they don't notice!

This was our Acer this morning, as the rising sun was peeking over the trees, with a reflection from the conservatory glass, on the first frosty lawn of the year. It's already lost a lot of leaves.

Tools and thanks

Hi Everyone my card today is for the
This is a GREAT challenge for 
those mens card that you may find tricky,
 I hope you'll pay a visit and play with us.

Lots of ideas on this but in the end I decided to go with a thank you for the fitters here. I'll even do a few the same!!! so they have one each. I hate batch making, I rarely do more than one card the same, but I like this card and I think they may appreciate it. I have a few days to do it before they are finished, so maybe one or two a day or more, we'll see.

Kitchen update

Hi Everyone, prepare for a LOT of photos.

Well what a kerfuffle this has all been, They were originally due Monday morning, but delayed on their last job. Tuesday the first morning, they were late due to an accident on the Motorway that had them an hour and half late, to non delivery of 2 appliances and having to order them from elsewhere, then hearing the other 2 won't be delivered until after the fitters were due to leave, so cancelling those and ordering from elsewhere. Then the fitters went to get something and the van broke down, they lose half a day with it. They have done all the ripping out and the rooflight in 2 days.It's been one thing after another. What they have done and the speed they are doing it is great. Although I could with a washing machine and cooking facilities asap LOL

I thought I would show you what has been happening this week. 
JUST BEFORE they started ripping it all out, 
not too bad for a kitchen that is 25 years old. 

This is our conservatory, with our old fridge holding the little food we have to keep us going day to day.

This is as neat as possible storage in my craft room / spare bedroom

We are having a velux window for added light and spotlights.

New electrics and replacement pipes 

There is light!

The window fitted and plaster boarded.

Caffeine Junkie!

Hi Everyone, do I need the caffeine! We have just cleared the attic, and it seems that my son has more up there than we do! It's a job trying to get him to throw things! Oh well.

The kitchen has had a clear out, so much china, there's only 3 of us and I am still holding stuff for the 20 odd we used to cater for when family came to stay with their little ones. The charity shops have had a field day. I may still get rid of more after the new kitchen is fitted and I start putting it all back and realising that I really DON'T need it. LOL. Everything is being delivered on the 11th and they start fitting on the 15th, so nearly at the end, of a LONG haul. THEN it's clear and paint each room. Hopefully we will be clear and finished before Winter so we can batten down the hatches and cuddle up warm and cosy and clean LOL.

Anyhow on to my card which started me moaning.
