Fresh New Look

I have had a revamp and a tidy up of my blog. I hope you all like the new look. I will invite you all to take a look at my older posts. Only one page away..but I finally fixed it up so that the tea house pictures are now able to be viewed closer up. I think its worth a look.

I want so show you all something nice that I won in a Xmas raffle, I will try to get pictures soon and also....da daah... the big kitchen redo! My daughter came home for a few days and said "ok, mum..whats a project you want done". I mentioned I needed my kitchen cupboards painted...soooo the next morning..I came home from work to find my kitchen had been literally torn apart. Layers off my walls.. paint pots..ladders... mess everywhere. She is being assisted by her dad, who... a few hours into the operation, hit his head on an arch, whilst climbing a ladder and almost brained himself!

Have a nice day all! Be back soon!
