So, all that preparation and it's over in a flash! Happy New Year, the first Wednesday of 2012 finds us all back at Julia's checking out the desks of the world again. Sorry I didn't get to many of you last week, you may have seen I was away decorating at my Mum's house - it's going to be a long job but we did quite well for 3 days hard - very hard - work!! My sister in law took some pictures but I don't have them yet. (hint hint, if you're reading this!)
So I can show you my floor today -
In the background is my Christmas pressie from Richard and Lynne (brother and sister-in-law) - some new Tim stamps - just need it to be Christmas time to use them now!!
We were down at Mum's house for 3 days and got her bedroom stripped - of furniture to start with - then the wallpaper off the walls (the whole house is covered in wood chip wallpaper, what hard work that was and will continue to be!) then we had to wash the walls & ceiling and start the painting - got one coat done so far.... there's a long way to go but not a bad start!
You may also be amazed to hear that since I got back I have done some clearing out HERE too.... need to get rid of a lot of old tat - so made a start at the weekend, took one sack of clothes to the charity shop and threw out a load of old videos that I can no longer watch and a huge pile of magazines - not crafting ones, obviously! 2012 is my de-clutter year.... and that's the closest I will get to a New Year's Resolution. Not setting a timescale either - but if it gets to a stage where you would notice the difference, I'll show you!
Anyhow, I have rambled on longer than I intended. I have to get my brother's birthday card made - he's hitting 50 on Friday!!
Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a good week.
