Yes, I am still alive and my cute blog award!

Hi there everyone!

Firstly, thank you to all of you for your lovely best wishes for our move. I really appreciate you taking the time and trouble to leave your little messages, it's fab! Yes, I am still in the land of the living following our house move! It's been total chaos, but it's all slowly coming together. We are really enjoying the space here, it makes such a difference. Poor Ian hasn't stopped working since we've arrived. He's been painting, putting up shelves, building, moving boxes around etc etc. I have just been directing, I'm getting good at that now ;o) It's starting to feel like home which is lovely. Lulu absolutely LOVES the garden, she tears around it like mad. There's a lot of grass here so I think she thinks we've brought the park with us lol. Natasha's really enjoying herself too, she's been really good as well which is a big bonus.

The worst part of the move is that we still have no telephone line or broadband connection. The drama goes like this... We wanted to set up Sky TV, Broadband and Talk so I booked it well in advance with them, however to cut a VERY long story short we have a tree that interrupts the signal to the satellite dish so the TV can't be set up yet. Now this is the kind of thing that always happens to me. Life is just not simple, but I guess that's what makes it all the more fun.. I think! The 'no signal' thingy equals no broadband or phone!!!! I feel like I've lost a limb lol. I had to go out and buy a 3g card to try and get access to my blog and it just can't quite cope with it. I wanted to pop in and say hi to you all, but I'm only getting a limited service on my blogger account :o(

Emily mailed me earlier to say that she has put an award on her blog for me today. It's sooo cute, I'm really chuffed to have received it. Unfortunately, I'm not able to add it yet though :o( I will add it when I'm back on line though, it's lovely! Thank you Emily, it was ever so sweet of you to think of me :o) You should check out Emily's blog, she makes some lovely cards and comes up with lots of little ideas to make them more unique.

I promise I WILL be back, and soon hopefully. If we don't get connected I might try a Wi-Fi cafe in town next week just to upload bits and pieces.

I hope you'll hang in there with me, I'm desperate to get back on line and creating again, it's just taking a bit longer than I'd hoped. Still, the house is nearly sorted and my new studio is being built for me as I type! Woohoo! I will finally have some space to make cards instead of at my dining room table. That will just be amazing.

I'm really missing you all, I just can't wait to get back online and start 'blurfing', and I hope to be commenting on your blogs again soon ♥

  4. Hi. I'm just here visiting your site, and I have to say, I like it a lot. You have some great stuff to check out. I have a small blog that has been around for about 2 years. It's not big, I delete posts every now and then. But I invite you to come check out my site. I would love to have you over. :D


Thanks for popping by to view my blog and for taking the time to leave a message. I really appreciate your feedback. Ruby xx
