    The Good Morning Thread

    Hi All Hope you are all having a good day. The weather is still awful, it has been raining all day and is so windy. Had the lights on all day it is so dark. The plumber eventually arrived and has sorted my leaky bath. Now just have to wait for a joiner to come and put the bath panels back on but I guess that will not be until next week now! At least I can now have a nice bath might make me feel a bit better too! Have posted my cards in the "latest makes" section if anyone wants a peek. Fish and chips tonight and a night in front of the telly relaxing with Dave. Have a good evening everyone! Steph x

    Good Morning All What a wild and windy day here! Its blowing a hooly! At home today waiting on a plumber to fix my leaky bath. He did say AM but so far no sign. Not been up to much as I have had a kidney infection and have been on antibiotics for a week and in so much pain and discomfort. However I did manage to finish off some cards I started a while ago, will post them in a moment. Well I hope today is a good day for all of you. Will no doubt catch up with a few of you on fb anyway. Take care all Steph x

    Hi All Yes, its me the wanderer returns. Have been away in London visiting my parents, quite traumatic but I won't bore you with all the details. Came back to some lovely presents and look forward to getting back in to my crafting. Still need to sort out my spare room and get it organised since moving in to my new flat. Started sorting out some of my baskets of fabric as I have way to much so some going up for sale on a certain auction website. My new philosophy is out with the old and in with the new! So peoples give me a few days to settle back in to the usual routine and I will hopefully be back on the scene a bit more. I hope you are all keeping well, have missed you all. I know I have caught a few of you on FB but those that are not there I say a big hello. Take care all and enjoy your weekend. Love Steph xx

    Hi All Hope you are all very well. I am sorry for my absence over recent weeks but have been so busy with one thing or another, no excuse really I know. The weeks seem to be flying past at a rate of knots. Havent done any crafting for a while and really need to get back into things. My mojo that went walkies a while back still hasn't really found its way home yet. Well its a cold and miserable day here today, the wind is howling too and I was meant to take David out and about for a little bit of sightseeing. I think at this rate it might be a lazy Sunday indoors with roast dinner and playing on the Wii. Enjoy your day all. Love Steph x

    Morning Saturday Just read through all your posts to try and catch up on what is going on. Sounds like some of you are gonna be having a good old get together, hope you have a fab time girls. Barbara, I hope you feel better soon how horrid for you and such a shame about the pole cat. Laverne, the early bird catches the worm, hi hun. Glad to hear you are feeling better after your change of diet. I bet the hair looks lovely and I am sure it will be the same when you do it, have faith lol. We had another nice day yesterday. I had to stay in for part of it as I was waiting on a workman to insulate the loft. Felt really sorry for him it was so hot yesterday and having to work with that fluffy stuff must have been awful. I the afternoon I took David to look at a house that a friend of mine needs some work done on which he is quite happy to do and then we went to Dunnet beach a beautiful sandy beach near Duncansby Head the most notherly part of the UK. What a lovely afternoon and the sun shone for us too. Catch you later girls, work for me today. Steph x

    Wow another beautiful sunny day here in Caithness, it looks like summer has really finally arrived with us at last. Picked up my car with its new exhaust yesterday, wow how different she sounds, lol. I don't think the boy racers will let me play with them anymore! Drove up to John o'Groats with David and had a wander around and a coffee, home for dinner and then took a stroll along the beach yesterday evening, a lovely day. No plans as such for today, we will just see how it pans out and what we feel like doing. I hope you are all ok and well. Sarah - Pleased to ear you are feeling better. Kaz - Shame poor you with the broken sleep, its amazing how it can knock the stuffing out of you. I do hope thinhgs settle down soon. Barbara, Natalie, Pips and anyone else I have missed - I hope thing are ok with you all. Natalie - Where are the winners of the glass challenge hun, I cant find them. Take care and have a lovely day all, Steph xx

    Morning all Quickie from me as i have lots to do today all with a banging headache following my birthday celebrations yesterday! Ouch.....lol. Had a lovely day with good food and very good wine and champagne, but a bit too much, oops! Never mind its only once a year that i may go OTT just a bit. Well got my friend from the airport no problem but the exhaust went on my car on the way back so all the neighbours knew I had arrived home, lol. Hopefully the car will be ready this afternoon but the part had to come up from Aberdeen so keeping my fingers crossed. Take care all Steph xxx

    Hi all Been mega busy today trying to get sorted. Had a phone call from my best friend to say he is arriving on Monday to stay for a few weeks. It has been an on and off plan because of work but now it is definitely happening. That means that my spare room where I have dumped all my stuff that still needs sorting now needs to be made into a makeshift bedroom. Well I have been on a roll since this morning and have even been through my wardrobe and bagged up all the clothes I can't fit into anymore ready for the charity shop. I am just so sick of seeing them hanging around and not being able to wear them. Now planning on a quiet time relaxing before bed. Got my cup of tea and a good book. Hope you are all ok, Steph x

    Morning ladies I trust you are all well and enoying the more pleasant weather we seem to be having lately. Unfortunately I had to make a mad dash down to London to see my parents, hence my absence the last few days. Dad has been diagnosed with early dementia and Mum is not coping very well at all. I am still trying to persuade them to move up to Scotland before things get any worse so that I can be on hand more but I think this falls on deaf ears most of the time. Well I am hoping to sort out more of my craft room today and I may even put my knitting maching back together again, maybe that will ignite the fire again I just dont seem to have the enthusiasm for anything just now, so if anyone finds my mojo mooching around can you put it in a box and send it back please, lol! Enjoy your day all, catch up in a bit. Message for Barbara - Realy sorry, I havent a clue where Margaret came from, apologies! x Steph xx
