so much to do and so little time!!!

well, it has been such a long time since I have been on here, and just so much has been going on.

We are in the middle of renovations in our lounge area, and there is stuff everywhere, and you know it - one job leads to another to another, it just goes o and on and on, and what seemed to initially be a relatively simple process becomes quite involved. This is the work in progress... so far anyway..

before...

and now...


Still heaps to do, and we are currently waiting on the next phase which is the gib stopper and then the painter.. with stuff everywhere it has been difficult to find the time for stitching etc, this is the sewing room/study - kinda hard to move around in huh


but this




has become this!


Every year we travel an hour up the road to Oamaru and attend the Victorian Heritage Ball, where everyone dresses up in Victorian garb, and we all look lovely and do all the old waltzy dances. Such fun. There is a whole week of celebrations in Oamaru..,

and this is my man - handsome dude huh!!


well, with not too much happening today being a Saturday n all, and handsome dude has left already for a full days rowing at a local regatta, I am off to spend the day (well part of it - as much as I can) in the garden - another area looking slightly neglected,

catch ya!
