Warm and cozy

Hello everyone.

At last all warm and cozy here at home, it took nearly a week to get the new part for my boiler, British Gas are ace in my books.

On the home front I have been very very busy making curtains and blinds for a lady who has OCD, and is making it very hard work to complete things for her. She brought some Laura Ashley fabric for her front room, very lovely it is until you go to sew it together and nothing matches!!! then to top it all the first pair we hanged we found out that her floor is not level, so in places they hung lovely in other they where to long argh!!!! Then she brought a blind and it was very flimsy and she could not get it to hang properly so asked me to put in blackout linings and redo the whole thing again, why is it they they never go together the same.

We had a lovely dusting of snow the other day, it made everything look lovely for a while, I went outside to put some rubbish in the bin and ended up on my bum covered in snow and laughing my head off, I am afraid that is my sense of humour, would not be any help to anyone if it was them, too busy laughing!!!! Wicked or what.

I do not know where my time goes at the moment, what with work, looking after my granddaughter and raising funds for my friend Leah who lost the baby. On that note I would like to say we are nearing my target of £1000, one of the young lads at work is going to do the Lincoln 10km marathon and everyone has been sponsoring him, so far nearly £200 in sponsorship.

On a personal note I would like to say a HUGE BIG THANK YOU to Lucy of Lemonade Kitty for her lovely generosity love and kisses back to you.

My Internet provider has been taken over and I have been having trouble getting on line, apparently they need to upgrade the lines!!!! what that means I do not have a clue, they have said that it will take a little while to get things sorted, so if I am quiet you now know why.

Well then that's about all for now, be back soon. Love and warm wishes to everyone.

Up date

Just a quick update, the gas man could not fix the boiler, has to order new parts!!!!, this boiler has been a thorn in my side since the day it was put in. Hopefully the parts that have been ordered will be here tomorrow, in time for him to come back.

I would also like to say thank you for all your lovely wishes xxxx


Hi everyone

Well up here in sunny Lincoln at the moment, it is very very cold, and we keep having snow, and to top it all the bungalow is freezing!!!

I woke up at 5am getting ready to get out of bed at 5.30 to get ready for work, only to discover that the heating was not on, checked everything but to no avail could not get it going, so jumped back into bed for a little while.

Dave got up and tried to get it going, no chance it was saying, so Dave had to bank up the multi burner so that we had some heat. He then got in the little oil rad and had left that on all day so when I came home it was not cold, so I am sat here in the living room waiting on the gas board, hopefully not to long!!!!.

I have been busy sewing for a customer making all her curtains, Roman blinds and shortening some of the others so it has been very busy. At the weekend I also covered 6 dining chairs which looked lovely in the end. So for me it has been a busy week.

I have also been making Christmas Baubles again, I have had a few orders so it makes a welcome change.

Yippie the Gas Board is here, and it is the same fella that has been before and knows the boiler very well, cause it keeps breaking down, he is very nice about it, so I make him a coffee.

On a personal front, my friend that lost her little one is slowly getting back to normal, so at work I have be asking for help towards buying her a headstone, we are doing very well, nearly £600 collected, one one of our young lads is doing the Lincoln 10km run, and has volunteered to do it in her honour, so we are all sponsoring Adam, not many young men would do that, but it just shows that there are some lovely people in the world. My aim is to raise about £1000 for Phoebe's headstone. so it will take some of the pressure away from Leah and Leon.

Then there is my daughters Maxine and Gemma who are going to do the Race for Life here at Waddington Air base in May for me, so they have been busy collecting sponsors, it is a busy time for everyone, keeps us out of trouble ha ha.

Well my friends I shall sign of for now, until the next take care and keep safe.

Hi everyone

I would just like to say sorry for not being in contact these past few weeks, but things have not been good with me.

I did not get to see my friend Jan (Kelly's mum), as she was poorly with her knee, so we put it off, so I did not get to see Kelly, which was a shame, and did not get to celebrate my and Jan's birthday together.

On the home front I have been busy getting my business up and running and so far its going well.

Had an order for 4 Christmas Baubles, and I am pleased to say they are done, I have also been making blinds, curtains etc for a lovely lady who is about to come out of the forces, so its exciting here at the moment, so if I go quiet for a little while please bear this in mind but shall do my best to write.

Next month I am excited about as I am off to the NEC for the big stitching show, taking a couple of friends so it should be a good day out. And for the first time here in Lincoln, we are having the first bead fair at our showground, cant wait for that either.

Well my lovelies, that's is all for now, once again sorry for not writing sooner.

Keep warm and keep happy and loving thoughts to you all.
