A lovely gift !

I received a lovely gift the other day from Marlene at Poppy Patchwork - the most delightlful mini rug.   It has cheered me up no end.  The rug is gorgeous.  Thank you Marlene :)

I've put the rug into Wee Witchy Cottage and really like it and think it looks so much nicer than the previous rug I had down.  It shows off Christine's lovely mushrooms and book much better I think.    If you haven't seen Marlene's blog please have a look and also have a quick peek at her blog about her lovely dolls house Somerset House

Pulling my socks up!!!

Haven't been around for a while - not been myself !!  At my age I have allowed too much to get in the way and it stops here and now!   I have lovely friends and family (although I don't live near them) and don't see a great deal of them and a great husband so what am I moaning about!  Well work for a starter - we are all completely maxed out at work and on Thursday four of us had the pleasure of meeting our new line manager - 'ells bells - she managed to reduce four middle-aged women to tears! The best part of it is she has never done our job and has no idea what is involved!   

Anyway woke up this morning at 4.30 am and sat looking at Lake View and then reading all the blogs, etc - miniatures have always put me in a better frame of mind and I found some lovely new furniture on Elf Miniatures website so ideas are starting to form which was beginning to worry me - no inspiration :)

I have 6 weeks to my holiday and I am so looking forward to it but would like to lose some weight which has ground to a halt.  This morning I read some more weightwatcher blogs and feel inspired again.  Have increased my points on Weightwatchers as I think the new amount was too low and have already cooked some meals to go in the freezer for next week. 

I wanted to apologise to some of you out there who I haven't emailed yet (you know who you are) but I promise I will - I didn't want to do it with a bad mindset :)
