Sunday happenings...

This morning I woke up to the toast drama (refer to previous post) before getting ready and popping into the wonderful 'Lark's  new shop. I must say it is delightful with some wonderful things I think I will return to buy in the next few weeks.
The dollars are short this week however I was able to buy a 'Keep Calm and Carry On' Teatowel, Thaw magazine and Peppermint magazine. Mr. S was also present so our stop was short and sweet. (He has little tolerance for children's dresses and pretty things although he did spend some time looking at the blind/curtain thing and commented on how wonderful that was).

Mr S also informed me after our departure that I told Allison I did not have a blog. Idiot. I DO have a blog. I am writing in it now. Must have had two thoughts happening at once (this happens to me a lot and can be quite problematic at times)! So my apologies Allison, here I am.

After Lark we went visiting some friends down in Hepburn Springs and then onto some second hand stores. We walked away empty handed however that left us with some spare cash to spend at Beer and Breakfast. To be honest...we weren't that impressed. Mine (hot corn cakes), was cold with overly crunchy bacon and Mr. S's omlette flavours were a bit too hectic for his liking. Oh well. Maybe next weekend we will go to our old time favourite 'The Cosy Corner' in Hepburn Springs. We love it there...

Hope you have had a joyful weekend!

Grilled Cheese Diaster!

This morning I woke up to find Mr. S in the kitchen.
He turned to me with a somewhat guilty look on his face.
I then saw the toaster in one hand and a metal knife in the other.
He was making grilled cheese in our toaster....our very small, can only fit two pieces of toast in toaster.
It will be no suprise to you when I say it didn't work. We now don't have a toaster.
He tells me Jamie Oliver has done it before. I am sure he has my love, however his would have been with success.
Mr S might have the task of finding a new toaster this week after work.

P.S. Can we please appreciate that the little girl in the picture has a large element of evil in that smile? Yikes.

This is lovely...

12.12am on a Saturday night/Sunday morning and I stumble upon this beauty.
I pray that one day I am talented enough to make such goodness. Sadly at the moment I lack the crochet skills and if I want the delightful piece of warm rainbow goodness it will set me back $356.60AU. Ho hum.

I've spent my afternoon and evening creating yoyo hair clips, button charm bracelets and friendship bracelets for wee ones. I really need to take some photos so I can re stock my made it shop. It's empty at the moment. Ho hum.

Yikes! I have the spring cleaning bug...

Something has come over me. The last two days I have been sorting out spare rooms, boxes, bookcases, containers and cupboards like you wouldn't believe!

I think it has something to do with my new job. For the last five years I have worked a 7 day fortnight (12 hour shifts mind you). Now I have a new position and work 9 days a fortnight. So you see, I have to be a little more organised than before. The last few weeks every meal has been pre-planned, washing has been done most nights and I am in bed before 10pm.

Yesterday I made a banana cake, did all the washing, cleaned the kitchen from top to bottom and pottered around the house. Today I have gutted an entire room, thrown out enough junk to fill a green garbage bin and have started sorting out my craft supplies.

Tonight I have been listing a few items on Ebay. If you are in the market for cheap buttons or beads. Take a look.

Hopefully tomorrow I can have some fun and make some more button supplies.

Odds and Blobs Shop on

Yesterday, during a much needed break from cleaning, I purchased this little padded pouch from Odds and Blobs on Madeit. It's going in my handbag to store my tissues and lip balms and hand cream and other 'why can I never find you when I need you' items that swim around in handbag darkness. Check out her other items...I am loving the fabric range....she ships internationally too!

Don't know where to start...

Today I just don't know where to start. Shall I....
  • bake a banana cake?
  • do all the washing - clothes, linen and towels?
  • dust, vaccuum and mop?
  • clean out the fridge before going to fruit and veg/butcher shop shopping?
  • make buttons!?
  • clean up the study/computer room that now resembles the local tip?
  • colour my hair?
  • catch up on all my favourite TV shows recorded on Mystar?

So much to do with so little motivation. Bring on the sunshine baby!

Listening to...

These two ladies are currently bringing music love into my life. What are you listening to?
