How Long?

has it been since I last posted, I am thoroughly disgusted with myself!!! Although I have not been exactly lazy though, as I sit here typing this I am surrounded by boxes, boxes and more boxes. This moving house business is a nightmare I'll tell you! All my crafty things have had to be packed away (boo hoo) haven't managed to finish my christmas cards and no I will not be buying any either. It totally goes against my craft religion to even think of buying cards lol.

On a brighter note I must apologise to the following people

Clare -

Erin -

Carol -

Anyway, I think I have waffled enough for now, don't know when I'll next get sround to posting but hopefully it will be before I move. We now have the moving date, 19th December! so I will be offline over the festive period probably. Make sure you all have a great time and I hope you get many many crafty prezzies.

No cards from me again

Well there are no cards from me this week again :0( I have been busy making my christmas presents for this year. I have decided after recently learning to knit that all the females gifts this year are going to include a scarf hand knitted by me. So I have been ultra busy on a night sitting with the television on in the background and knitting away to my hearts content. I have managed to make 3 so far and have another on the go at the moment.

Unfortunately I don't think that there will be many cards from me from now till the new year. As some of you may already know my husband was told that he is being made redundant at the beginning of next year. Whilst we were on holiday a couple of weeks ago he attended a couple of interviews and we are happy to announce that he has been succesful in one of those jobs. Therefore we are going to be moving. This is going to be big move for a number of reasons, we are not just moving a couple of miles down the road we are moving a couple of hundred miles down the road lol. I currently live below Scotlands highest mountain(Ben Nevis) in Fort William and we are going to be moving to North Yorkshire to a small town called Ripon. This is my husbands home town and he still has friends and family living there so at least will not be all alone.

The kids are bit excited and scared at the same time as am I as it is a really big change for us all. I will keep in touch as much as I can over the coming months, however if I disappear for a long time then at least you all know why. We reckon that we will be moving around the 13th or 14th December (just before Christmas groan) so it will be a fairly quiet one for us.

I will keep in touch as much as I can but for now I am off to get ready for my MRI scan at Inverness Hospital and then home to start packing.

Speak soon
