Weak As A Kitten!!!

The heat and the decorating have finally knobbled me and I have had to spend the last couple of days pottering about trying to finish off the big card order. Two more to make today and then it's done and dusted and I can start on my Christmas cards. I need to get everything done by the beginning of November so that my customers and the shop have everything they need and I can get on with getting ready for New York.
I promise I will get some pics on here as soon as I have some cards done.
Mr Manic is going to help me put the bedroom back tomorrow as I am having trouble lifting anything. We have to go out first to The Range to pick up a couple of things....including some new mugs as the mister has banana fingers at the moment and is breaking a mug every other day. Clumsy old so and so. I hope they have some red and white spotty ones as he has broken mine.
Oh crikey......look at the time. I'd best go and get some shuteye.
Tara for now.

Good Morning!!!

Well today is day four of the bedroom makeover and I have to say that I have just about got enough patience left to see it through.
So many niggly little problems left by the previous owners that had to be sorted out before I could start on anything.
Anyhoo.....the pink marbled wallpaper is gone at last and has been replaced by three walls of cream and one feature wall of black wallpaper which I found in the bargain bin at B&Q. Sixty pounds worth of designer wallpaper for nine pounds and it's gorgeous.
There is just one and a half pieces left to put up today and one more coat of paint on one wall. Once that is done I will shampoo the carpet and then I can get on with my favourite bit of putting the room back together....yay!!!
I should have had help in the shape of DD but she has gone on to a new job where she works and is no longer doing a week of nights and a week off so I got Mr Manic from Monday to Wednesday......and that is all I'm saying on that matter as if I went into any details I may not be able to remain ladylike in my!!! I will just say that my poor Smudge has a not very fetching cream blob and stripe on backside which Mr Manic denies responsibility for....even though he was the one wielding the paintbrush yesterday.
Missing my Doodle Bird who is down in London on holiday with her other Grandma and Grandad. She's having a lovely time but I can't wait for her to come home.
This morning I have along list of house jobs to do before I can go back upstairs so I had best get on and get it done.
Tara for now.
