It's me again...

I've been a very bad blogger haven't I...although I can't believe where the time has gone!

Went to the GP this morning...still off work...and off for another 2 physio yet. Feel miserable most of the time with it. I bought an exercise bike yesterday, which hopefully we can put together this evening, although with the amount of nuts and bolts, it looks like a degree in engineering is required!

Thank goodness for our extensive dvd/video collection and my HUGE stash of wool...which keeps growing despite all that I've made whilst I've been off.

I've almost finished my 2nd big parcel of goodies for Loving Hands...gonna try and cram a few more bits and bobs in. I must remember to take a photo of what I'm sending this time....don't hold your breath that I'll remember though!!!

We've been (or rather I've been) having a clear out. Our house is full of clutter, about 99% of it seems to be mine. It's hard to be brutal about your own stuff but our house looks too cluttered and it's more stuff to dust (not my strongest housework task!!) So we have 6 bags for charity waiting to be collected...thank goodness we had a bag delivered on Fri saying they were collecting tomorrow, saves us a job of trailing into town. I just hope they come and that I don't have to wait til the weekend for it all to go to a shop (they've been sat in our dining room for about 3 weeks now and more bags just get added!)

It's such a pain cos I could do lots of sorting and tidying away but then my back kills and I suffer for the next day or so even worse than normal...little steps with it all...but it's so tempting cos it's such a mess on top of our wardrobes...

Oh and our sofas are here and so is our dinin room set!!! You wouldn't believe the trouble I had trying to find a good home for our old sofa and 2 charities would take them!! Unbelievable how you can't give some stuff the 2 chairs are waiting for the council to collect them and we're keeping the sofa (it's a 2 seater)...for Lady and Charlie, who despite our best efforts kept going on our new ones...having one for them has stopped them going on our new ones! I've just put a cream throw over it and it looks fine. I can't believe we have 3 sofas now and one is for the pets!!

As for the tv unit...I cancelled the order...let's just say problems with the company...


  1. Its always good having a clear out, and good for the charities who benefit. I think its funny that your dogs have a sofa, my dog only has a bean bag, I'm so glad she can't read!!

  2. We had intended to get her a bean bag, she had claimed 1 of the old chairs and the cat had the other...we gave in after chasing her around the room as she chair hopped...naughty puppy!

    Anyway when the new sofas came she kept trying to get between us or even making out she needed the loo so that when we got up, she'd jump on the dog!

    So, after no success giving the sofa and chairs away we decided to keep the sofa for the animals...also more seating for guests...we're so soft!


Thank you very much for visiting and taking the time to leave a comment...come again soon! :)
