busy busy busy......

Hi ladies,
Wow where does the time go? My last post 3 weeks ago on my way to Sydney,havnt had a spare moment since!
Had a great time,caught up with my lovely friend Josephine and her little Miss Daisy! I have big Daisy,she has little Daisy!Will put a link to her lovely blog when i work out how to do it! She is an author and has a wonderful way with words!!!
Been busy here as usual,bought a lovely pink Moran roses 3 piece loungesuite and a French armoire which i have painted white,so that has kept me out of trouble!So much for getting rid of all the pink in my loungeroom,i have gone straight back to it!Lucky for ebay,i can sell everytime i have a change of decor!
Anyway,have to go upstairs and cook tea before a night in front of my favourite programs!!Will put up some pics of my new loungeroom and armoire,which i just filled up today with all my royal Doulton old country roses and crystal that had been hiding in teh cupboards out of sight!
Also some of my new ebay listings,i have some great French aubusson rugs and lamps!
Will do a much better post tomorrow and catch up on reading some blogs!
Have a great evening all!

On my way to Sydney!!

Hi girls,Finally a chance to catch up,i am sitting at the airport waiting for my plane!!! First bit of peace i have had in weeks!5 glorious days of ME time!!!had a busy time with kids in the holidays and also an unexpected family death,which was quite awful.The funeral was last Friday and was really sad,but it was nice to catch up with a lot of family i hadnt seen in a long time.
I had a really good clean ouit of my work room,its amazing what you find when you havnt looked ina while! I was lucky enough to find a few of my French poste sacks that i thought had long been used up!So i made a few cushions which are currently on ebay!Also had plenty of lamp orders and orders for other things,without fail i find my busiest time is just when i am about to go on holidays and think i am organised and then have to madly sew and pack parcels!! But i cant complain business is good i suppose!!
Am loving all the new shows on tv at the moment,the australian apprentice is hilarious,there are lots of dreadful annoying women to laugh at and the boss guys Mark Bouros,i love how he talks really slowly in case the people listening might have the brain span of a 5 year old and need things simple.Also loving how many times the former Miss Australia can drop her title into a conversation.Too funny!
The new show flash forward looks like a goodie and i am loving packed to the rafters and rush.And guess what,i am so proud! I have given up on home and away after 21 loyal years.I figure that as i am now in my 40's (gasp gasp) i should now watch something a little more intelligent than crap from my teenage years.So i am now addicted to spongebob.yes,really,i love him!!!! And daisy's influence had nothing to do with it!
think i am waffling on now......anyway,if anyone can give me any suggestions of good shops and places to look at in Sydney,much appreciated!!! I tend to stick to the same old places everytime,would be nice to have some new recommendations! I cant believe how crap the weather forecast is for the week,after seeing 30's and high 20's recently,how come its 17 and rain all week????? Not happy Jan! If anyone could do anything about the weather or have a word to someone,it would be muchly appreciated!

Ok,so ciao for now,plane is about to board!!
Will do lots of catching up through the week,hope everyone has a good one!
