Holidays are here!

Yippee the holiday is finally here!
I've packed, cleaned manically (I like to know it will be nice and clean to come back to, bit daft I know) and sent Morten to stay with my sister and her partner. They love him to bits and it is so good to know he is happy. I miss him though because we pretty much spend all our time together. Lovely Morten.

He was not impressed with my hoovering though. He slumped on the sofa till it was over.

I had another picture to get finished too which I fitted inbeween bed washing and gardening. I am silly but I can't help it!

Now I am just waiting for my nail varnish to dry and I'm off to bed. Early start tomorrow then it's hello sunshine!

I have just been trying to link on my blog which I have been unable to do without this new app for blogger on my iPad.

I thought I had done it then it disappeared and then I did it again and it didn't work. Then I posted once more and failed again. I will master it!

Until then I give you a symbol of the pace of progression of my I.T. skills.

A Jumble of a Week

Hello! Sorry I haven't posted for a bit, I don't seem to have had a great deal to say or to show you lately.

Inbetween being the referee for children's squabbles, trying to keep on top of the housework, running errands (new footy boots, new keys cut, doctors appointments,etc) and having a crisis of confidence work wise; there seems to have been little of interest to blog about.

Anyway, over the lady few days I have cobbled together a mish mash that includes dog walks and a yummy tea of sweet potatoes roasted with honey. I made this tonight because I feel a bit cheerier! (this week food has been dull, mostly consisting of pasta or something out of a tin!)

Sorry if it seems like I'm always moaning and feeling down. Those of you that have complicated families know how things can be sometimes. Also I think I could do with being more easy going...... :)

I can hardly believe I saw these ripening blackberries on our walk today. How fast is this year going??

I have been drifting along for too long and this approach of Autumn has made me think I better sort a few things out work wise. Still no Etsy shop and no firm direction. Does anyone else have these problems?

Also I wanted to ask for help and advice about prints. What is the best way to produce them? Home copying or go to a printer? I get so confused and unsure that I end up doing little bits but nothing much. Got to get motivated before it is possible to make blackberry and apple crumble!

Big Sigh

So nothing much has been happening here and I have been a bit down in the dumps. Tired and unable to commit to much. Oh well, I'm sure it will pass.

Here are a few pictures of the last few days, a bit dull I'm sorry!

Tales from a Bean Bag

Soren brought his bean bag downstairs and has watched Olympics aplenty!
While we were out of the room we heard the rustle of beans and found that Morten has taken quite a shine to it! He was busy launching himself at it and then wriggling to get comfy.

I have been in school this week starting a large display. I still have a lot to do but I will have a break for a few days now. I had an early start today and was at work for 7.30am and now I am pooped! Feet up with a brew and Olympic swimming :)

We have friends coming for a meal tomorrow night so another busy day cooking and cleaning. I am trying out a Delia vegetarian lasagne. Hope it is nice and easy!
