Catch Up Time




Life has been hectic for awhile .. so the blog has been on the back burner for a bit.
Lots of things going on with the house reorganisation and update .. bathroom is now complete and looking good, should have done this ages ago but you know how it is one puts it off or on the to do list.
I have now decided the house is far to large for me and the cat so have decided to rent a part of the house as a studio with an on suite bathroom it will be self contained and fully furnished ... if any one has any tips to pass on on this subject I would be pleased to hear from you. 

Sewing, I have been doing lots of small items for swaps and gifts  here is a sample  of useless items that I did this last week....

My quilting MoJo is still missing, but have embroidery to fall back on .... will show what I have been doing another day

I have also been doing a fair bit of cooking for the freezer ready for the winter some casseroles,  soups and curries  I am getting so organised it is beginning to worry me ... shame I still can not get the ironing organised ...yeah ... all my good intentions of keeping up with it have flown out of the window again.

The mornings are getting cool here and the tracksuit bottoms have been on a few days already until the sun comes up, the long sleeved tops have been found from the back of the wardrobe and laundered ready, or into the Op shop bag ... why do we store away clothes and stuff we know we will not use again and will give away as soon as the season comes around again, must be the squirrel in us or the hoarding instinct.
So I will go and sort some more stuff, and catch up again soon.

Your little mice are adorable! And i love the thought of being organized. Perhaps you could come for a visit, and get my house organized? I think of cooking ahead and flling the freezer, but it never quite happens. Maybe some day. Glad you're back!!
