Testing ...

I thought I'd try a NeoCounter on this blog (I have Sitemeter on Vintage to Victorian). It'll be interesting to see if anyone visits!

Bit of a jumbly week here - the following list is the only organisation in my world at the moment! As you'll see, its contents are quite a jumble:
  • decorating the new bathroom and picking the wrong colour initially
  • emulsioning over the rather bright kitchen walls in Mum's new house and not being able to decide on the right colour(!)
  • collating wedding acceptances
  • finding someone brave enough to climb a ladder to renew the seal round the bathroom window that was letting in the rain
  • looking for a wedding outfit for Mum (unsuccessful)
  • wondering what on earth I'll find for me and everyone suggesting it's time I started looking (less than 2 months to go!)
  • trying to organise my new space at Dairy House Antiques (with difficulty - hadn't realised how much stock I had)
  • emptying nearly everything out of the garage yesterday to make space. Two tip trips later (mostly empty cardboard boxes!) nearly everything has gone back in, but I now know how much additional saleable stock I have! And most of it needs either washing, scrubbing, polishing or mending! I found P's saws buried at the far end - unseen since we moved last July. He had to buy another one last week for an urgent job and now look - 4 of them!
  • making a double trip to Clark's Village at Street for card for my business cards - bought the wrong thickness first trip and jammed the printer! Luckily it's only 6 miles away
  • painting another wall of the hall and still hoping to finish the whole house before the wedding

Apart from the above life has been relaxed, quiet and uneventful!

I was tempted to take some photos yesterday, but the jumble is far too embarrassing!

I have a tune in my head which won't go away - the Lloyds/TSB advert with the people with long noses. I love their faces, the music and the whole caboodle. I think P is getting fed up with my saying 'I love this ad' every time it comes on. But heyho, he's married to me - it goes with the job! He'll have to live with it ... until the next one!

Do you have a particular favourite? Old or current?

A New Day - A New Blog

I'm not too sure what I'll be posting here, but I think the name says it all. I have so many things going on at the moment that everything is a Fuzzy Jumble and my mind is flitting from one thing to the other and I just have to hope that I end up in the right place at the right time with the right things in the car, or wearing the right clothes! Time will tell.

I started my other blog here in September 2006 and have had tremendous fun getting to know you all. With luck I shall have a website up and running by the end of this month or the beginning of next, but it all depends on what sort of a jumble the next few weeks become. I have to make time for photographing and writing descriptions for all the vintage items I will be offering for sale, and that takes time!

I hope you'll pop by from time to time and for your sakes I hope there'll be something interesting or amusing to look at. Thanks for getting this far - and my apologies for the jumble of colours on this blog. I may change them or I may change to a different template. It will all depend on the fuzzy jumble that is my brain!
