or in the words of Moannie - exoisted! oh do go see!

We are kinda sorted.
Just the old house to clean
the new to live in
and make our own.
The sun is shining
all bodes well.

Give me a duvet week and l'll be in fine fettle!


  1. Oh boy, you have to feel sorry for the mare!

    CJ xx

  2. I get the idea. Hope you get suitably pampered on Sunday. The kids have remembered, haven't they?

  3. That's exactly how I feel after this week.


  4. That grey kitty is adorable.
    Did you remember to pack the dog?!

    I am so pleased, Saz, that everything is going so well, and that you've had some decent weather that might also help, while you're decanting and airing rooms, and so on. Looking forward to hearing all about it, when you've had your duvet week - Sounds like a fine idea to moi. xxx

  5. Just think of this time next will all be over with! Glad everything is going well! Loved your pics! Hope you are exhausted in a good that mare!!!


  6. Great exhaustion shots. But in spite of them, sounds like things are looking up. I'm glad.

  7. Oh my, I can relate. Hope you feel rejuvenated soon.

  8. Great exhaustion shots. But in spite of them, sounds like things are looking up. I'm glad.

  9. ah, er, is that horse sleepin?

    Regardless, take a nap!

  10. Glad everything went well.. always exciting to move house and reestablish your home... just a bummer about the cleaning!!! Be great to have people follow behind taking are of all that!

    My "Meez" this week shows me doing exactly what you are wanting to do.... it has been a long week!

    and to Woman in Window, yes the horse is sleeping :) he feels he has worked very hard... they always look utterly knackered after it all.. but it takes about 20 seconds and no post coital chat, ciggie or hugs from stallions... as the stud master usually says - "he is here for a good time, not a long time".

  11. Ah Saz you do deserve a fortnight under the duvet for sure .. mazel tov on the new digs!

  12. I think the pictures say it all - except the horses - is life as bad as that?! Sheesh! x

  13. Hope that you can see the light at the end of the tunnel. It will be worth it!

  14. How did you manage to get that picture of me?

    Best of luck

  15. Funny! You gave me a good laugh today.

  16. okay your tired, your sleepy but one of those photos shows a little time for some hanky panky.

  17. :)
    The pictures have conveyed he message. Do take good rest!

  18. You're in, that's the main thing!

    You've got forever to unpack, relax a bit.


  19. O honey love. I love all those pictures and I can see you slumped somewhere at a cupboard perhaps, or on an exhibit. Back to normalish soon.XXX

  20. Love the photos! Hope you feel more refreshed this week.

Thanks for stopping by!

Take the weight of your feet, draw up a chair and pour yourself a cuppa. Leave your troubles at the door and together we shall ride out the storms.
I will walk a while in your shoes...

Tesco - every little helps

Last year I bought myself a new camera online from Tesco. One of those emails arrived in my inbox with a 'deal of the day'  and for me the camera was the dog bollocks, in as much as it had a large 8 mega pixel whatsit .... and a large LCD, and yes I do like things big.. say no more! Oh and it is red! which is almost as good as purple but not quite, like size colour of inanimate objects does matter. It was a great price and the bonus was that it came with a, yes you guessed it, large  memory card. Total cost £74.
It arrived quickly but not with the promised memory card, so I contacted Tesco and they apologised, told me they'd run out and would credit me for the cost of the memory card. I found to my surprise a credit of £36.99 in my bank account, so the camera was only £37! I bought the same memory card from Amazon for a few pounds only, so a  result, thank you Tesco!
A few weeks ago my girlfriend's washing machine broke down in its last month before the 12 month warranty…

What a difference....

a year makes!

It has taken me the better part of the last month, to access my blogs (and Moannie's) as I feared it had alas been removed from the ether. Playing around with passwords and email addresses...I'm in again.

My last post , just 10 months ago...burst my seams, as again I realised how so much has changed!

I'm still,  in my new wee home, with Joey (dog) and Monty (cat).

My lovely son has returned from uni in the USA, attained a First Class degree and started work in London last Autumn as a writer...the world his oyster for the taking! My hero!

My beautiful daughter is in Leeds, amid her Midwifery degree, working at a Brazilian first class restaurant, all loved up with the Spanish Chef.... a meeting is on the cards AND he is taking her to meet his Mama is Spain this summer, so must be serious methinks! So proud!

My hugely supportive brother (TOAOS) is living contently in the Garden of England with his wife and Harry the cutest dog!!

My younger and what a stunner sis…


..and here we are firmly into a new year and I am sitting up wide awake in bed, yet again... I am reflecting upon what was in 2013 and what wasn't.

The 'what wasn'ts ' are left where they are, filed and duly noted, I shall unremember them.

However for the 'what was' ' and that which I choose to bring with me into 2014, are the things that are memorable, enriching, happy and surprising, be them the tiniest fragment of joy or the biggest new thing on the block!

I didn't get off to a great start in January as we had only recently lost Mumma a few months before, the countdown to my son's second year of uni starting mud summer in the States and i was in the middle of a roller-coaster of negotiations trying to secure a business lease and plan for a potential opening. I wasn't at my best and i was running low on fuel.

However as always when faced with a challenge I was defiant and rose to several occasions, decisions with all the positivity I could mus…
