Yo Yiddily Yo

And what have I been up to for the past few months, yes it is THAT long since I blogged. Not that I have not had good intentions, it just hasn't happened.

The winter has gone now, (although there are some days I wonder) but on the whole we are getting some brighter and some hotter days. The sun is so nice touching the skin.

I have stitched, and found quilting over the winter months, and there are an awful amount of unfinished projects in my work basket. I had been beavering along on them hoping to be in my own home for this Christmas. That is not to be, but there is a method in my madness as I am going to build. I have bought land, and my plans are now with the Council awaiting a building consent. They have promised it before Christmas, which we all know is just around the corner.

So here am I putting the sold sign on the board....
It is in a lovely new area, a cul de sac which will be quieter and of course safe for the boys. The fur boys that is! I love my plans, and had them drawn up by the chap who had done all the previous houses that had been built. I am super chuffed to say the least, and just cannot wait to get into it, around Easter - give or take at this stage.
The girls are both good, and Anna and Aimee came and had a weekend with me recently, then a few weeks later Lauren and Andy came up too for a couple of days. Yes, they are back from Australia for a good year it seems, both are going back to school, Lauren to finish her degree and Andy to do something completley new.
So just to let you know that I am around, are doing ok (most days) and are looking forward.

Congratulations Kath on your new land! I know your house will be gorgeous and you will settle in beautifully. You can choose all the colours (& we all know how good you are at that!!) and then live there FOREVER! How wonderful will that be! Are you still coming with me to the retreat???

It sounds like you found a lovely lot. It's great that the same guy is doing the plans, he did a real good job with your other houses. Keeping my fingers cross the everything will pass before Christmas!
