ALL ON MY OWN
I'm all on my own.
My boys have all gone to visit Nana and Grandad.
By all accounts they are having a high old time.
I have been working a lot. 
Then when I have finished working I've  been cleaning and tidying like a mad woman.
But finally after us talking about it for a very long time we have put our lovely house on the market.
The final effort to get it all done has honestly nearly finished me off.
It looks amazing here, my friends all want to come round and marvel at the fact my house is actually tidy. First and last time I suspect.
I hate to think what will happen to anyone who even breaths wrong round here!
This morning I escaped while the estate agents were doing their thing.
I did something I never do these days.
I went and sat in a cafe. 


I drank tea.
I read a magazine.
I did a little light crochet.
I at a delicious toastie.
And very slowly I felt the clam return.
I came home and wandered from one clean, tidy and uncluttered room to another and thought how happy we have been here and how sad it will be to leave.
But all things do eventually come to an end and it is time to move on.
I spent the afternoon making some cards for friends.


Really happy with the way they turned out.
When they left the boys took our 5 visitors with them.
They have changed quite a bit since 
I last showed them to you. 


I'm rather sad that I will be missing their final transformation, but I am being kept up to date on their progress. Hopefully some one will remember to take some photos.
Have wonderful and relaxing weekends people.

  1. Oh I love your cards - free motion embroidery is so addictive and those cards are fabby fab.

    Crossing fingers and toes your house sells quickly.

    Enjoy the peace and quiet while it lasts. :)

  3. I can't imagine you being all calm! I saw your 5 visitors today - apparently they had been "wriggling" so, as the song says, "A change is gonna come". Enjoy the peace and tranquility and if that leads you into a terrific urge to freestyle machine a tree for me - feel free m'darlin'. xxAxx

  6. Exciting times ahead, enjoy the tidy while it lasts, hope it all goes smoothly for you. Are you enjoying the peace and quiet with the no boys around - or is it a little eerie?
