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.


  1. My gosh you have been busy, hope the fundraising goes well, what a lovel jesture for your poor friends, to pay for the headstone. Good luck to your daughters.

  2. When my very young son in law died suddenly everyone was so kind to my daughter and grandson, and very generous. If you e mail me your address I'd like to make a donation towards the headstone as I know how important it is to the family. Lucey xx

  3. Hope that you are warm and cosy again! I wish I was in a position to be able to help Phoebes' parents...Continuing to send my love..
    Warm Wishes,

  4. Hope your boiler is fixed now!! Definitely the wrong time of the year to be without heating!!
    Good luck with the fundraising!! You are very kind!!
