Woe is Me

Morning folks and no still no crafty stuff to show...it's been an all out decorating weekend and I am now ready to start on the walls...blimey is this turning out to be the marathon of all decorating jobs. But there has been a development or maybe I should rephrase that...a lack of development and I must share before I explode with frustration...we need to get a new velux window for the en suite...now the project manager aka...hubby has known about this for weeks but has he done anything about ordering one...NO and his excuse is....he forgot...well ********** excuse me...blimey all he has to remember to do is get up in the morning and go to bed at night...so the upshot of his forgetfulness is that the tiler can't come to tile the en suite until the window is fitted and goodness knows when that will be and I am not getting the carpet laid and moving back in until the tiler is done and dusted because MESS and tiling go hand in hand so it looks like I will be dossing down in the front room for a while yet. The good news is...I am no longer living out of a suitcase...wardrobes are finished and I spent yesterday afternoon moving all my togs in...hey ho Rome wasn't built in a day and I may just be installed in my new bedroom this side of Christmas.
And I took some time out on Saturday to meet up with this sweet little missy...she slept for most of the time but just opened her eyes as it was time to leave and I'm sure she is trying to blow me a kiss


Megan and her very proud big brother
And wasn't Dancing on Ice fabulous last night...everyone was fantastic...my heart was in my mouth at the skate off because although it pains me to say...Hayley and Dan just weren't as electric as usual and I had everything crossed they wouldn't be in the skate off and poor Danny and Frankie...he is just a lovely cheeky chappie...oh I really didn't want to see anyone leave...can't wait for next week's semi final.
Well "The Budster" and I are off for our morning stroll if I can manage to put one foot past the other after my decorating weekend...the old body is doing a major protest this morning. Having a crafty day today...need to get some DT stuff done before I don the decorating hat again tomorrow...catch up with you all later
Hugs Kath xxxxx
Edited to add: and just to add to my woeful mood...it is chucking it down with the rain and you know what that means...one very wet dog who will no doubt shake himself the minute we get back in the house and do I have time to wipe down the mud splattered walls in the kitchen.

  14. We need to do some decorating but with an old blind, deaf Spaniel stotting off every wall it isn't going to happen any time soon lol! Know what you mean about wet dogs too. I managed to get out with my 2 while it was reasonably dry this morning.

    Little Megan is so sweet. What a little cutie. I posted some pics of Poppy and Oliver yesterday. I think that young man is going to be a real heart-breaker lol!

    Hope your bedroom gets sorted at the earliest.
