This weekend has been all about my little bro. He has returned from a four day trip to Ibiza in what can only be described as a state. Thank the lord he didn't go for a week.
There has been points during the last two days where I have wondered whether he needed to be hospitalised but as I type this tale of woe (it is 4.30 am) he does seem to be improving (he is having a sleepover).
Fingers crossed, this could be a big wake up call for him and he will start to live a quieter life from now on. Let's hope his 2 black eyes have faded before he goes back to work.
Do you remember the old school desk I acquired? (you should do it was only four days ago!).
I bought it from the charity shop where I do some volunteer work.
Well, whilst out shopping for general provisions on Saturday I happened to park in the car park behind said charity shop and I could not believe what was waiting out back for the bin man.
Quicker than a flash I was in the shop asking if anyone would mind if I saved the bin man a job and took the chairs home for myself.
Chuffed is not strong enough a word to descibe how I felt as I loaded these little darlings into the back of the Land Rover and zoomed off home.
They need a bit of TLC but I am thinking that all the scrawls and scratches from over the years should be preserved. I think maybe yes.
As I have been keeping a watchful eye over my little bro this weekend, chatting with him and generally trying to keep his spirits up I have also managed to be quite productive on the kitty making.
The next stage will be the outfits, packaging and marketing (hark at me). When I say marketing I actually mean listing them and then telling you that I have done so.
I will be Folksying and Etsying this time round so let's see what happens.
Up til now I have mainly sold my kitty's at the fairs, to friends and friends of friends etc and of course to you my blog pals.
What do you think of my 'new look kitty's ?
You know what's C is coming next..
Mr Betty has been hard at it and has replaced all the damaged panelling in my little Sprite 400 caravan. He did sustain a rather nasty injury in the process but as he is such a brave soldier he just squeezed some super glue into the severed area of his hand and ploughed on.
It is now ready for the next stage and I have decided to wallpaper.
I reached this decision after purchasing the perfect paper whilst popping in to request that I be the new owner of the aforementioned chairs. Yes, my little charity shop is the best!
It is not the most amazing of vintage wallpapers by any stretch of the imagination but I think it is ideal for the job in hand. I didnt want owt too jazzy as I wanted a fairly neutral backdrop.
At a pound a roll one can always change ones mind!
Tomorrow will see the launch of my 'name the caravan' competition.
Check in for the rules ( they will be pretty basic ) and details of the prize ( it will be pretty cool ).
I am now going to attempt to sleep for a couple of hours before I have to get up with littlest for school. I have a feeling this ain't going to happen but one can but try.
Thanks for reading folks. X
