Cupcake delivery & Miss Marple
This morning a welcome postal delivery arrived. A parcel from Victoria (Florence and Mary). This delivery has given me an appetite! Such beautiful photography capturing these mouth watering cakes... Thank you Victoria, a lovely giveaway which I am so pleased to have won.
Four pretty cards and a notebook
I have spent the weekend de-cluttering and decorating... This is not how we want to spend all our weekends but there is so much that needs doing that we have to accept that some weekends will have to be spent here working. In time, we will be able to sit back and enjoy the fruits of our labour! I do look forward to that time.
The lounge is not quite ready yet. Alan's desk/office has been under the stairs in the lounge for the past few years.
The removal has begun
At the weekend we moved the desk up in to my work room. We wanted a more spacious lounge and reclaim the area under the stairs. However, this means that the contents of his desk/office etc..are to be transferred to my workroom!
This will become a shared workroom. There are 7 large boxes worth of Alan's stuff that I have to make room for....Somehow it all has to fit in.....This is the boring bit, I much prefer the decorating of the finishing touches bit but it has to be done.
Have you seen the new Miss Marple? We have recorded it but I haven't seen it yet . It is maybe unfair to say anything now as I have not watched the New Miss Marple but I think it will be hard to beat Joan Hickson, my absolute favourite. I really cannot imagine anyone being as good or better. Agatha Christie told Joan Hickson that she hoped one day she could be her Miss Marple. Agatha Christie's wish became true.
I think I might have to bake some cupcakes this afternoon...
