Storms,renovations,holidays,new pandora beads and jewellery!
Its been a while since i posted,where does the time go?I have been super busy since christmas,we are in the middle of renovations here and the house is chaos!We just had it restumped 2 weeks ago,lovely big cracks on all our walls now,so requiring a full inside house paint! Not sure whether to keep it antique white or to go a pale swedish bluey grey!! Ahh the dilemma!I have also been painting the outside,which is no mean feat considering this is a 2 storey 5 bedroom 80 year old house,needing lots of prep!!I have chosen a deep cream with white trim and black guttering and iron work,very French!!!We have a lot of black wrought iron balustrading and old garden scrolly lights,so is coming along nicely!Have also been getting stuck into the garden,will post pics of house and garden soon!
I have just returned last week from a trip overseas,had a fabulous time and bought lots of great treasures which i have listed on ebay!beautiful new pandora beads,lots of jewellery,fabulous sparkles and bling! Even some sparkling rhinestone iphone covers,which i am in love with!A girl can never have too much sparkle!
Havnt had much chance to do much sewing lately,i have a lot of customer orders,so that keep me busy working on those,so no new stuff for ebay i'm afraid,but once the house is over and done with,sewing machine here i come,i have missed you my friend!
Only 3 weeks until Ryan comes home from his overseas trip,it has gone very quickly!! He is skiing in Sweden this week with his father and grandparents,wish i was there!! I did have a brief visit from his grandparents 2 weeks ago,they flew out for a medical conference in Sydney and drove all the way down to see me,so we had 2 lovely days together before they had to head back off to Denmark.It was great to see them!Hopefully i can head off there myself in the next year.
We had a HUGE storm here in Melbourne last night,torrential rain and hailstones,my car has big dents in it and many friends lost windows and windscreens!! Our house is a bit less leaky since being restumped but we still did have some water coming in!Not as bad as usual though,thank god!The pictures i have seen on the news makes Melbourne look like a war zone!
Anyway,i have just about run out of time,i have to go to work soon! Thats my other bit of news,i have a new job!! Working at a local hospital in the emergency department,i still have my other job at the other hospital,but now doing some extra shifts a bit closer to home!
Anyway,i certainly hope to get on here a bit sooner and add lots of pics and more news!!Have a great week ladies,will try and catch up on blog reading as soon as possible!! I miss you all!! lesley : )
