Bargain Of The Century!

Well I am sorry

No really I am

I have neglected my blog for a long time now… it is my own fault if you aren’t even reading this!

BUT OH MY GOLLY GOSH – I got the bargain of the century and that is why i have not been blogging! There was a silent auction at work to get rid of the stuff from the design studio and I saw a set of 5 bookcases and bid $250….. they turned out to be ike expedits that retail at $189 each so as you can imagine I was a very happy camper at this discovery. Since bringing my (HUGE) babies home I have been busy moving furniture around and re-organising my sewing/craft room. Mummy twohoots should be coming for a visit in October and I want it to be a fab room for her! I also want to stop crafting in front of the TV and stop leaving my shit stuff all over the living room. So each evening I have been busy with trips to Ikea, moving furniture, recovering furniture, throwing out junk etc etc. If it makes you feel any better it is not just my blog that has suffered with neglect – the rest of my house is looking somewhat dusty and in need of a good sprucing!

So I promise when I have completed the revamp and all my accessories I have ordered arrive there will be a MEGA post with LOADS of photos!!

In other news i FINALLY posted my mix tape cds. I loved making them and I was a few days late posting them because I had to re-learn how to use photoshop AND i kept forgetting to post them – they have lived in my handbag for a few days.

On a humorous note – i received my first mix tape from sweden….and it was BLANK! must email miss b about that. It gave me a bit of a giggle.

will post photos soon

There’s A Storm A Brewin!

Woke up this Sunday morning to winds howling, rain pelting and gates clattering. Yes winter is definitely here! Chef Boy pulled himself out of our flannel covered bed and get ready for work while I struggled with the thought of waking up while such a commotion was happening outside.

So I decided to stay in bed on my laptop till such a time where the hunger pangs are too strong and I am forced to get up and start my day properly. After half a bag of The Natural Confectionery Co. -“Sour Squirms” I do feel like I should probably get up….but soooooooooooo snug here!

Today I have set myself a task – to start and complete the two CD’s for Miss B’s Mixed Tape Swap. My current issue is that half of my music is on my old laptop and the other half is on my new laptop so my music collection is somewhat scattered and disorganised…… really need to sort that out.

I also need to do some drastic alterations to a new dress I got: I bought a Kimono styled dress off Asos. It was on sale at like $15 so I thought no harm if it doesn’t fit.

So it arrived (alongside my new socks and tights for the winter YAY)

Kimono??? NO – it was more like MOO MOO! It drapes very unfavourably over my body and ultimately looks like I am wearing a sheet. I tried to adapt it with button holes and ribbon but it made the back balloon out something terrible. So today I may attack it with new gusto and see what happens – eek!

Ok – starting the day now – the sugar has settled on my teeth and feels yuk!

So it was a cruisey Monday evening. Chef boy had cooked dinner and I was in a food coma on the couch. I got up to go to bed (for an early night at last) when I realised: “oh no I was supposed to bake cupcakes for the nephew’s first birthday tomorrow. Nooooooooo” Ok ok […]
