CONGRATULATIONS AND CELEBRATIONS!
Huge congrats and big hugs must surely go to Julia today - 400 not out, what an amazing achievement! Keeping us all going week after week is a huge commitment and she handles it brilliantly - well done lovely gal, here's to the next 400 :-D
As you can tell, we have the Interwebs up and running at our new house - I can't believe we've been in for ten days already, it's gone so quickly! We are unpacking slowly, the important rooms have been sorted but this is the state of the JanCave Mk2.....
It's a good size space but I'm itching to decorate as that poopy brown wallpaper is truly horrible...I'll show you some that are worse in a minute!!
People have been so kind sending New Home cards and there have been some gorgeous ones from deskers:
From L-R, Lynda, Twiglet & Wipso, Diana (Velvet Moth) and Shaz Silverwolf (who we must all send positive vibes towards as she's undergoing more surgery today) I also got some mail art from Doone:
Completely wonderful, there is so much to look at (especially on the reverse, forgot to take a shot of that) and I adore these lyrics, so pertinent at the moment. Thanks Doone, I love it!
I stumbled across a craft group last week and so am joining them for a knit and natter session at a local cafe tomorrow, should be fun! They do a lot of stuff for charity, so that could be a useful outlet for some of my makes...when the sewing machine is back in action that is :-D
But there's so much to do in the house before then - although it's only 12 years old, the decor is very tired. Not only is that poopy brown wall in the Jan cave, there are these beauties to face too:
Gorgeous, huh? NOT! Actually the full horror doesn't really come across in the pics, the full awfulness hits you in reality. Needless to say, the industrial wallpaper steam stripper will be in frequent use. All in good time eh?!
Have a great week and enjoy this 400th anniversary desk snoop xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
