where have i been....

It has been a few months since my last post, and i want to say thank you to everyone who sent me a message asking how i was. Well all has been fine but just hugely busy and something had to give... I have missed blogging and 'being Miss Ginger' but i am back! I have moved house. just clearing my old house ready to move was hard enough. Two children, a dog and two cats weren't much help! so we left ..........

and ended up living like like this for a while.. Not much fun but with some hard work it is getting better.

 One room - my daughters - is done.

The builders arrived today to do the bathroom and boiler and some wall changes. Me and frank the dog are hiding in the kitchen. So for the next week more turmoil and dust but at least now i can see an end. I have lots to report on what else i have been up to and crafting news. I am listening to lots of Nina Simone - feeling good cos i love my new rather dusty little house!


  1. Well done you. Moving is a right pain in the arse. We had unpacked boxes cluttering up the place for some years after we moved into our current house (I know, we're hopeless). Love the wallpaper in the first pic. It looks like the Pips Studio flower and bird combo. I have my eye on the yellow one. xx

  2. It's lovely to see you back in blogland, moving can be so stressful can't it and now you've added builders into the mix, are you mad woman!

  3. Welcome back! Moving house... what a stress! Well done on your first room 'complete' and best of luck with the build.

  4. Lovely to have you back in blogland. Looking forward to hearing more about the house and what you have been up to :) xx

  5. Yay - welcome back to the land of the blogging! Missed you.

    Glad you are all moved and making headway - catch up soon lovey xxx

  6. SO pleased you got through it all in one piece! It's a pretty dire process all right. Your daughter's room looks lovely!

  7. Welcome back to blogging. I hope the settling in continues to go well.

  8. Wondered where you were! Welcome to your new home - look forward to more posts soon.

  9. sooooooo glad your ok.

  10. Welcome back! And congrats on your new home. Our move never happened in the end, we're hoping to start again next year. Think we'll have to redecorate this place first though!
