I am still here, but life was busy, then my laptop ran into some minor, then huge problems, the mess and dust overwhelmed me, so I took a wee holiday.
I am now using Hugh's laptop so no photos today, I will load some very soon.
The painter is almost all done, he has one room, walls and skirting boards, one last coat on skirting boards in the hall, and a lovely clean palish grey is wonderful after mustard wallpaper. White trims all through, and I need to pick some new curtains.
However!!!!! We looked at fabric and the one I really liked was so expensive, ending up over $2000 for the fabric, about $800 for the lining. So we are looking again, and maybe in March when the kitchen will be tackled, they can be finalised.
I have been reading all your news, snow, ice, cold days and nights, then here in NZ, flowers blooming, rivers flooding, and yesterday a tragedy as White Island had a massive eruption. Many there were tourists and the tour guides and operators, so far the outlook for those who survived is not good, I cannot imagine the horror as it happened so quickly.
I have some sewing to finish before Christmas, 3 bags that will be going back to Australia for a friends daughter and his 2 sons.
Thank you for all your enquiries, we are both well, I will see how long I can cope with Hugh's bigger laptop. the keyboard is larger than mine, and a MacBook Air or Pro might be a late Christmas present,
Do many of you use blogger on an iMac, or MacBook? I will need to consult the IT man in our family when he is on holiday.
