I'm not getting it back...

..until next Wednesday... my stuff... that is. My living room carpet has to come out of storage and be fitted first and that isn't happening until Monday for delivery and Tuesday for fitting. I was hoping to get some crafting done this weekend but that plan has gone out of the window. I've got some ATC's I want to do for 2 swaps and I'm not sure that I'll be able to get them done in time. I know what I want to do, so if I can get organized as soon as my crafting stuff arrives I just might be able to make the deadlines. Wanted to do some gardening as well, but as all the tools are in storage no chance..except that I had to go to the library to pick up a book that I'd reserved and as I was in the area I popped into a little hardware store and picked up a hand fork for a pound. Cheap ..but it has done the job for now. I've spent a couple of hours in the gardening tidying up a little. Going to know about it tomorrow though..I'm already aching and it's the big shopping day as well. Will be totally wrecked for the rest of the week....feels good at the moment though..I've been itching to get out there.

At last it's finished...

..and I should have my stuff out of storage by the weekend.  just a couple of things that need to be done(telephone socket to be attached to wall and back security light being wired in). I promised myself that I would take it easy over Easter..but I ended up cleaning the outside. The white upvc windows and doors are once again white and the paths swept. I can see my garden again...and it's looking beautiful despite being neglected. I have an abundance of flowering bulbs which makes me temporary blind to the weeds that I'm sure must be there somewhere. There is decorating to be done but I'm in no hurry with that. Son is going to emulsion everywhere for now. The kitchen and bathroom are decorated and have new flooring...and all the doors have been glossed.  It's lovely being able to have hot water on tap without having to wait for it to heat up.....and the best thing?..not having to get out of bed on a cold morning and make my way downstairs to use the loo!  I have 2 now....1 upstairs ..1 downstairs.
I have a lot of catching up to do on the computer, but I will be able to spend a little more time as I won't be so k********ed after getting up at 6.30 for the last 9 weeks!  (I can lay in now till 8 o' Still too early for me though)
