First Blog

Hey All,

So being new to all this stuff, it has taken about 1/2 an hour to sort it all out and I am still not sure whether the format is great but watch this space for changes!

Thought having got a couple of friends who blog and how much I love reading all about their new purchases or what they have made etc. and with all the exciting transitions in my life at the moment a blog would be ideal to log it all! New house, new job etc.

Today was the day to start as my partner went to work today and has locked the front door...only problem with that is... my keys are in his car, thus I am unable to leave the house! DOH!!!

So it should be a day of cleaning and sorting ready for the return of my wonderful partner. But at present it is a day of lounging around in my pyjamas and passing the time online.

I'll quickly tell you about a bargain I have found over the weekend, courtesy of a lovely lady on freecycle! My partner and I have just collected a wonderful pine coffee table ready for when we move into our new house! yay!!! It was not quite what we were expecting but is 100 times better! Cute and square perfect for feet and glasses! (in our current place empty glasses sit on the floor and then get knocked over)

I am looking forward to practicing my sanding and staining
on this to get it to match our other pine bargains!!
I guess for now  I have run out of things to say and thus that is the end of my first blog. Might spend a bit of time working out how to neaten things up and then see if I can set up my folksy shop, if you haven't seen that website you should check it out!!!! Loads of craft things to buy.

Thanks for reading
