Now that things are beginning to settle down after the Christmas and New Tear madness I've found myself with a HUGE list of things that I need to do. So much for getting back to regular blogging!
I have loads of crafty stuff to get done, quite apart from trying to get the house striaght again, which since our visitors arrived pretty much as the builders left means a lot of stuff that was rammed into cupboards and all sorts of assorted out-of-the-way places need to be rediscovered and put back where it belongs.
And there's always the Everest-sized mountain of washing and ironing.....
We now have built in cupboards in both bathrooms but I've not had a chance to actually put much in them yet.
We bought gorgeous dark red towels for the main bathroom and my Aunt and Uncle liked the colour, and liked the fluffiness of them - what they weern't so keen on was getting covered with red fluffy bits efater every shower and wash! And I'm not so keen on the fine layer of red "dust" that covers the floor, the walls, the sinks.......and the red footprints leading across the landing!
I think those towels will be washed VERY frequently in the next few months - whether they are in use or not to make them more user (and housewife) friendly!
I don't think I ever got as far as posting pics of the finished building work. We're sooooo pleased with everything now, it's made such a difference - all that time and effort has been worthwhile - you can scroll back to October if you need to check!

My gorgeous new toasty-warm fluffy lined CrocsGot my regular subscription to the US Papercrafts magazine, plus these two fab books from MIL
And just in case I ever find myself on another planet -not just what hubby calls "Planeet Kathy", at least I'll have ice-cream.....
Yes, my crazy hubby bought me some astronaut food - it's supposed to taste like reall Neapolitan icecream and an icecream wafer-sandwich - I'll let you know if that's right when I've plucked up the courage to try them!
I've been doing CJs and Design Team stuff this week, but haven't got photos to show yet, still loads more to catch up with, but I'll get there eventually
