New laptop

Ok, there's hope. I have now got a laptop and found both my camera and the charger, so there is hope that this poor blog might actually be updated occasionally!!! I still have half a house to finish decorating and organising. And a whole garden to sort out!! Plus a huge veg patch to fill, so don't hold your breath!!

Just to prove I have been busy (just not with crafting), here's a few snapshots of what we've been up to in the garden.....

We put a back gate on the garden......

then built a picnic bench.......

put up a greenhouse and planted lots of seeds to fill a huge veg patch.....

and then built a brick bbq. All in the space of one day!! We celebrated the next day by having all the family round for a BBQ and going to the beach. It was lovely due to the wonderful weather at the weekend. New shed arrives Friday and new dining room cabinet on Sunday, so we'll be a bit closer to being organised!!! Fingers crossed!!
We're also boarding the loft so all the boxes of stuff can go in there instead of in my crafty room!!

Hope you've all managed more crafting than I have recently. I'm sure it will all start up again when this house is finished. We're installing a new bathroom over the easter holidays! What fun! Happy crafting peeps xx

Hmmn, should have known when I was being smug about uploading that it wouldn't last for long!! I have been RUBBISH again this year so far, but in my defence we are still trying to sort out this stupid house! We have moved onto the garden now and my veg patch is starting to take shape. I am also planning on getting some chickens soon, which will be full.

I am still crafting and have been remembering to take photos, I've just not been uploading things :-(. However, I bought a laptop last week so as soon as all the necessary thigs are uploaded to it, I will hopefully be more of a regular vistor to my own blog and also to yours. In the old house we had the computer in the lounge so it was switched on permanently and I was on it all the time. Not I have internet on my phone and the computer is upstairs so I might only come on it once  a week. Not great for keeping up to date with a blog. Now that I have my laptop I can use it from the lounge and might just be here a bit more often.

A concerted effort will be made to upload something tomorrow then I can legitimately join in the leapblog xx
