Cannot believe....

where the weeks are going too, it's weeks I blogged BUT feels a lot longer, lol...

Have been busy round my daughter's house, last month the damp course was done, the cowls were put in place, as was new lead flashing... well so far this month, had a double doorway knocked through from the lounge to the dining room and bi-folded doors fitted (which I bought and collected from wicks, my goodness they were heavy)...
Had the larder bricked up, (and the back was then knocked through into the conservatory) the kitchen doorway has been moved so there is a chance we can now fit in some kitchen units (remember the dilemma about that?)... on Monday we are having the loft ladder fitted, also should hear next week when the plumber can come and fit a new bathroom suite and when the double glazing will be fitted, I've been running backwards and forwards sorting them all out, so has been all go there...

Also had more meetings/appointments about Sevens transition and have a few more planned for this month to look forward to.... still no further forward than I was this time last month, in fact might have actually gone backwards thanks to some lack of funding, but I'm still on the case and fighting where I need to...

As for crafting, last month did knock up the ATC over a few evenings, (not done this months yet, sorry Bev).... also did manage a few birthday cards as when were needed and have just knocked up a Valentines card over the last few days for tomorrow, (a few minutes here and a few minutes there, lol)...

I've also managed to buy a few bits in shops sales (don't you just love the internet, where you can shop in the middle of the night, lol)...also from Make the Moment Last in their closing down sale, so yet again another shop I love, bites the dust....

My daughter had her engagement party last weekend, a little late seeing she got engagement at the end of October last year, but because of the time of year everywhere was booked, so they had to wait till now... It went well and lots of people came to help them celebrate their happy day, including family from Lacock and friends from Bournemouth, hopefully lots of photos to scrap (when I get the time, lol)...

I've also chosen Steven's new bedding (chocolate brown, beige and 2 different colour blues) and have decided on the paint and found the new units I want to buy, so as soon as Sam's house is sorted, can start on that....

This last week what with builders, have also been trying to catch up on the business books as it's half term next week and of course that all goes on hold with littlen home. We've got nothing planned, have a few ideas, but will see what mood Steven is in and what the weather is like to what we actually do each day, all I know is on Monday I've got my mum coming up to look after Steven while I go round to Sam's house to see in the loft ladder man, and I'll have to stay there till he's finish, I've got some more PECS symbols to laminate so at least it keeps me out of trouble, lol...

Right am going to try and catch up with my friends blogs while we're sitting here watching Balamory...
