Quite a lot going on...

...so apologies for being a slightly bad blogger - must do better!

Here's a list of random stuff:

Counting down - oh yes - to the ArtsyCrafts & Tim Holtz weekend!!! - 2 more days peeps - count them - 2 more days!! (and if you can't wait for your Tim Fix switch on QVC today and he'll be popping up and showing all manner of lovely things!)(but don't get them from QVC - they'll be in your sticky little mitts quicker when you buy at ArtsyCrafts & we've got all the good stuff - trust me - I've seen it!)

We've put our flat (the one we live in) on the market...very exciting (and slightly scary) - hit the market on Friday and had a viewer on Saturday! eeek.  We are now living in a permanent state of tidyness - and thats hard for me! (I have to keep trying to remember where i've stashed things! lol)..
So just in case you're in the market for a 2 bed flat (ahem, apartment! lol ...its what the estate agents are calling flats these days!) here's a picture of our lounge:
lots of natural light floods through (oops this pic taken at night, use your imagination) the west facing 4m wide fully double glazed bay window.. please note the high ceiling of this Edwardian Terrace property.. blah blah blah
aw come on - don't laugh - I've got to take all opportunities to advertise it! lol  its not going to sell itself is it! lol

I stopped at a zebra crossing earlier in the week and the elderly gentleman I stopped for raised his hat to me in thanks!  Made my day - it was so 'old school' and gentlemanly!  more men should do that.  The two women who crossed after him didn't even acknowldge that the traffic had stopped for them to cross safely - though in their defense they were talking on their mobile phones and pushing buggies so..... lol

Started teaching a new course at the college - lovely group of students - real beginners which is great!

I've been fighting a cold that never seems to go away - the coughing was the worst bit! I'm over the worst of it but my poor nose! Thanks goodness for Kleenex Balm tissues! Sniff... cough... Hubby says its like living with Steptoe Snr!  Charming!
I've been on two GNOs which were very different - on one I laughed so much I could quite easily have fallen off my chair but I held it together long enough to realise that one of the people sat opposite me was someone i went to college with and haven't seen for (ahem) 20 years.. very strange to be reminded of my 18 year old self - apparently she remembers that I had 'folders, dividers and nice pens'. !!  Which just backed up T's theory that I'm v organised (?!)(or just a little bit ocd.. which isn't a bad thing is it?)

I think thats enough of my random waffling - things to do, people to see, flat to make 'viewer ready'



  1. Your flat looks so gorgeous Im sure it will sell very quickly. We have our house up for sale too and its so hard to keep it tidy. Look forward to meeting you at Artsycrafts.....gonna be amazing x
