at my house......

I am struggling to work up the energy to do what seems like thousands of loads of washing that I just couldn't be bothered to do on the weekend....

I am also struggling to work up the energy to pack bags and get organised for our little getaway that we are going on on Wednesday......

I am struggling to keep up with Nate who seems to have endless amounts of energy!

Seems to be a lot of struggling happening!

At my house I am also busy making stock, packing stock, taking photos of stock and listing stock in the stores!

And right at the moment I am typing this blog post, enjoying a HOT cup of tea and watching The Bold and The Beautiful, luckily it is so easy to follow as it is the first episode I have seen in a while!

Oh and you can catch up with what is happening at everyone else's house here.

Happy Monday!

memories of melbourne - part one.....

Well it seems like it was forever ago that we spent a few days in sunny/windy/rainy/cold Melbourne!

I was just going through some photos and thought I would share a few with you.....

I am sure there were plenty of other gorgeous sights at Flinders Street Station that I could have snapped but no, I took photos of the little Flower Store at the entrance....

If I lived in Melbourne my house would be filled to the brim with gorgeous blooms, they are so, so cheap down there!

Happy Friday!

calico & co stationery swap.....

I was excited to see the Postman wandering in my front gate with an arm load of parcels yesterday morning! Amongst some very exciting things was my Calico & Co Stationery Swap parcel from the loverly Cat.

Note - Cat I had to steal your photo from the Flickr group because I was so excited I ripped the wrapping off before a photo could be taken!!

Inside the gorgeous wrapping was the cutest set of Kikki K Stamps! Now either Cat and I are on the same wave length or she did some good researching and saw that I have a bit of a thing for stamps at the moment!

Thanks Cat! I love them!

You can check out the other great Calico & Co Stationery Swap items here.

a nice surprise.......

Once again, I find myself being distracted by my loyal friend, the internet. I was checking out the comments regarding the Calico & Co Big Birthday Craft/Handmade Swap (details can be found here) this morning and snooping around my fellow swappers blogs. I came across a little blog called You, Me & Miss E.

I was so excited that in the first post I read, the lovely Ellie had included my Amy Butler Lotus Tea Box Handmade Cards in her Madeit dot com post (you can see it here)!

I then found myself trawling through the whole of Ellie's blog and also found myself becoming very envious of her crochet skills!

Thanks Ellie for including my cards in your post, you made my day!
