I have 2 grown up children both left home now I love watching create and craft for inspiration I also make my own jewellery and bag charms and knit albeit not very well lol I am willing to give almost anything a try x even though ive been on here for a couple of years now im still not very good at the technical stuff so if things disappear dont be surprised lol x

grrrr council

well council rang me to say they couldnt come weather too bad to reseal window so have to wait. Came home weds after shopping to find bath SHEET folded up on windowsill so wet it was dripping on floor. Replaced with tupperware tub that was full in an hour!!! in 3 hrs filled 3 litre jug phoned at 4.30 to tell them and was promised someone within 3hrs ... he just made it with 5mins to spare but as it was almost 7.30pm was pitch black so he couldnt see a thing outside and was a plumber not a brickie so checked to make sure none of pipes in bathroom leaking as its right above where the leak is and they are all fine so need a brickie to check wall outside. Next morning yet another plumber arrived to say exactly same so now im still waiting for a brickie grrr.

However on a positive note I have WON my first ever blog candy and im so excited lol cant wait for it to arrive thank you so much  Michelle at Shells-crafts xxx
