On today’s menu

Lately I have been feeling the cold. 
Don’t know if it’s because I’m doing too much and about to crash,
Or it’s just that I’ve lost weight and fingers crossed, I’m over the worst of the menopause. 

Anyway. We have lit the fire and it’s a lovely warmth coming from it 
So hopefully the house will soon be much cosier 

So I’m planning to stay in bed and work on this
My call the midwife blanket for the new granddaughter coming any time now

With a hot coffee, and some videos
A slow, warming, good for the heart and soul day 
See ya xxx

Catch up

The weeks are flying by so quickly 
Although for my baby girl maybe not so fast. 
Here is her baby bump, she has about ten days until she is due. 
By now most of us were well and truly over being pregnant and eagerly waiting to meet the new little 
Bundle of joy
I’m such a bad granny. I have the yarn to make a new blanket but I haven’t even started! 
Just so busy lately 

And here is Melody. She loves collecting rocks and giving them to her uncle Mathew 
Even being on the phone at work won’t stop her delivering her find. 

He accepts them with grace and she’s happy about that, but as soon as she’s gone they go back outside lol 
Can’t blame him. He would have quite the collection by now if he didn’t lol 

Carpet has been chosen and we wait for an installation date 
It’s not as easy as you think, wonderson has a “mate” who can purchase the carpet and he will lay it for us 
It’s a huge savings doing it this way. Only thing is. We have to wait until he can fit us in 
So for a massive saving, we wait. 

Today is ANZAC Day. 
A day we remember those that fell during the war. 
Specifically at Gallipoli, and generally for all those that made the ultimate sacrifice 
Lest we forget 

So lots going on here. 
I’m still swimming every week morning 
Keeping the weight off, now I’ve reached my goal.
And while redecorating trying to get organised for our trip up north in a few months 

I’ll keep you all posted on all the exciting developments as they happen 
Have a good one 
See ya xxxxx

Painting cont

Painting of this half of the house is completed. 
Carpet man will be next. 
Just waiting on him to measure and then source carpet and give me a laying date 
Meanwhile. I’ll continue to give away, or get rid of the old furniture 
I’ve found some I like on the net. I just need to go and take a look at it in person 
Busy times ahead. But exciting too!

And so, it begins

The painters have arrived. 
Meet one on Friday at bunnings and purchased the paint 
Hubby and I spent the weekend moving all the heavy stuff into the middle of the rooms to make life a little easier 
On the men 
They have covered everything and and busy getting on with it 

For now. Just half the house will be painted 
Then new carpets will be installed 

And I’ve got my eye on some new furniture 
This is will be a huge change 
Most of the furniture is over twenty years old! 
So a makeover was well over due. 
Probably be the last one before we are too old to live here anymore, or die 
Either way if it lasts twenty more years I’ll be happy 
Once this half is done. The second half will begin 
Going to be a busy few months
But I’m sure it will be worth it. 
I’ll keep you posted 
See ya xxx
