I have found a place for everything but will have to wait for the retreat to be built for some of the items. I'm also going to buy another three 'ghost chair's for my dining room. They are beautiful and a big thank you for pullling my name out. It's certainly inspired me to do some more work on Lake View. I will try and take some more photos this week and have another go.

My next gifts were these two tables which are so different. They were made by Michaela's husband and they are really nice. I had admired their table. One table fits in the dining room in Lake View perfectly (although I now require some ultra modern chairs) and the other table I have decided is going to be used in the bathroom with two sinks (I've placed the buckets on it so you get the idea!!). Michaela has started a blog now and has some beautiful houses - go and have a look.

I'm still going in to work because we've got so much work to do and another colleague is on holiday today. Got some Nurofen, Paracetamol and cough medicine and of course a giant box of tissues!

Witchy Cottage Update
I also asked Ted from Dolls House Concepts to do an extension for me for my little Witchy Cottage and I finally started on this - first stage was the brick work and then the plaster. Hopefully later on today I will start the painting. I bought the original cottage from Ted.
Hubby cut some MDF for me as a base for the Witchy Cottage and this has been primed ready to start work. I will add the extension to the side of the cottage and want to do a small herb garden. Lots to keep me busy over the next few months.
The third and fourth are to follow soon ...................and this is after I promised no more spending due to my job review!!!

My major disappointment was not calling into the Dolls House Emporium at Carlisle as I was hoping to buy The Retreat:( I've got some great ideas for mini projects whilst up there!

This year I asked Mags for a Turkey and veggies and they arrived last week and are beautiful. I just need a dining room table which I should get next week to display the lovely Christmas lunch.

I have missed lots on blogland and need to spend some time catching up so all bear with me (there's only so much tea I can drink!). I haven't been on the Dolls House Emporium Forum which I also enjoy so maybe it's time to get my backside into gear :)

The first photo is some of the tractor tracks at Sutton Bank which were really difficult to ride over and the second photo is the spot I fell off at! It may look flat but it was on a slope and I rolled down someway! I'm pretty sure that a satellite in space captured it and I'll be on You Tube at some point!
