I’m an octopus don’t you know?

Good afternoon.  I hope you are all well lovelies.  The sun is shining here in sunny Clacton although its not a powder blue sky, I’m not complaining..  I thought I would pop in and show you what, I have been up to over the weeks of absence.  I currently have an hour on my hands while I wait for the walls to finish drying in the bathroom to add the last and final coat, while I wait for the last of the washing to finish drying and while I wait for it’s time to put dinner on.  And I guess all those things are going to be all at the same time.  BWAHAHAHAHA!! I’m an octopus don’t you know?  LOL!

The Dog Hogger is not letting anyone near ‘HER’ new cushion..  Yeah right!

I was inspired to make this from a new little blog I have found and as you know I do like to silently stalk blogs.  I have had Annie’s Place on my rss feed for a while and I really love her creations.  I adore the way she writes her stuff and I enjoy reading her. 

I really can’t remember what yarn it was I purchased and how much it was, but I do know it was from ebay lol..  I love the muted colours on this and its really lovely to work with.   I have enough to do a really small project with it.  I am doing cushion covers at the moment for my living room.  I think that sometimes the cushions can look dull and need a breath of life in them.

Slightly wonky but that’s why it’s unique.  I just totally love these colours on here.

OOOOOOO Have you heard about the new pay it forward on pinterest.  Apparently pinterest has launched in the uk?  I’m a tad confused cos I have been using it for a few years lol..  Oh well I think it’s a fabulous idea. I have found so many new boards to follow..  Love it! I can find everything there and know what the heck the link is lol.  Rather than book mark it and then think what’s this or where did I put that link..  Oh where, oh where lol!! I’m a link loser.  I find something then love it and lose it.  GRRRR anyhooooooo pinterest is good for a link loser like me ha ha aha ha.

Anyhooooooo tiddly hum ho  to the bathroom I go to finish that job finally. 

Have a truly spectacular day xx

erm it’s may!

Hello loves long time no see.  I hope you are all fabby out there in your corner of the world.  I know it has been a disgustingly long time since I have been here.  He ho tiddly oh, such is life and it’s been super duper busy..  Remember I got the new job, well I have spent a lot of time fixing, mending, organising and re-organising and that’s going tickety boo for now.  (shitting hell this font is small – must change it!) Also I have been training for counselling and I have a client.  I know just the one and it’s a simple case, thankfully, I don’t think I would be ready to dabble in anything too complicated.  I am still shadowing a colleague learning the way she works and the watch and learn method is really working well.  Also I am mentoring a student at school who is a wonderfully bright child but errrrrrrrrr yup lets leave it there.  So it all does seem very busy and it is and I am kinda getting back into a little routine.    I have began my GCSE maths which I am feel like an LSD overload victim.  Yah I am totally brain dead with maths.  I did want to get lots done this week but I decided to paint the bathroom.  That's another story for another day lol.


As you have noticed I have had a make over.  Finally after forever searching for the perfect theme I found it.  My little frweend Sandra from Cherry Heart directed me to a wonderful site called Pugly Pixels very helpful site, and home of my new template.  Of course I can’t leave nothing alone so I will be changing it up and down lol!!!  I want to get some pics of my projects and on going projects..  Now don’t take this the wrong way, but I don’t think I will be putting any logo’s on here. well not yet anyway.  I just hate clutter and so I have a blog roll and will be using that to link to those I have subscribed in my rss feed.  I’m not going to promote those I don't read sorry! 


I have been crafting, and it’s a perfect amount.  I have made a few baby shower baskets and blanket, which I totally forgot to take a piccy of bahhhhh!  I have made a few cards (showcased above) and I have finished a few crochet projects, which I have yet to photograph.


I must say I am really enjoying life, even though sometimes it does throw you a lemon or two, I have a fabby backhand and bat them straight back bahahahahaha…

Happy Thursday.
