Then the two empty rooms are going to become a guest bedroom (I think!) and an office although the guest bedroom doesn't really inspire me much so that might change!

Anyway quick update - got weighed on Friday and have achieved another 'mini' goal! I am presently at the lowest I have been for a few years and I now want to get to goal before my holiday in September!!!! So ..............another two stone to go (if not more!). I am so determined now - goodness knows where the determination has come from?! I just haven't had time to do any miniature work apart from starting a Pascale Garnier tulip kit (not the easiest but enjoyable). I also ordered a couple of kits from Georgie Steeds which arrived. I have not managed to recreate my Kindle in miniature but as hubs is working part of Easter I might have time to try this. I am sure I have mentioned this but hubs is addicted to Geocaching and no matter where we go (even the Doctors!) he manages to find a geocache. Because he always gets dirty doing this he now wears his really old jeans, which I hate but am grateful for at times like today when we had a lovely day. I happened to spot hubs as he slid down a bank onto a road whilst searching for a geocache near Rievaulx Abbey but didn't have time to photograph or video him but it was funny but did photograph the back of his tatty jeans!! He is worse than a big kid :)
I am thinking about sellling Lake View now!!!! It's still a shell and I have done absolutely nothing with it. I am thinking of selling that and in the meantime getting a tiny little cottage from Dolls House Concepts and making that into my little witchy house and moving the witch from the attic in Holly House, then doing a bathroom and study in the attic!!! Oh my!!! Don't know what's wrong with me :)

Work was yeuch this week!! Even worse - how on earth can it be but it is ?! I keep threatening to do a secret blog about the goings on at work - one day I might!
Anyway I have made a decision about my DSLR camera - I am going to sell it!! My joints are really bad now and and so is my back and neck but to be honest I have really enjoyed going back to a small compact camera - it does manual, etc and it is so convenient to use. I am also going to sell my tripod but not my wonderful bright red Crumpler bag which was an import into this country and I love it!!! We will still have hubby's DSLR which is a fab model and newer than mine so if I want to use that I can! That's one decision made!
Now the Kindle - I LOVE IT!!!!! Hubby bought me the red leather cover from Amazon - expensive but totally worth it! I have now decided to try and make one in miniature! Well as you know anything could happen with that project - thought I would try to keep it simple and photographed my Kindle to use for the mini version. When it's done will post a photo! Will also post a photo of my lovely red cover. I never thought in a million years that I would be so in love with an e-reader as I am mad about books!
