Hi ladies...well i have been very very slack/remiss re my blogging over the last week & a bit...!!

I actually went to qld to see my son...we had a lovely 3 days shopping for his place..

had a bit of a scare flying up...first time in my LIFE..I have ever actually had to turn back...get off the plane..until they found out what the problem was...a tad scarey.. BUT all good in the end.

and coming back...flight delayed by 2 hours!! never mind...nearly finished reading MARY MOODYS latest book...enjoyable...good light read..

and now I am back doing my usual CLEAN UP & ebaying!! whats NEW???!!
only joking...I love cleaning...finding goodies for ebay...etc..

BUT dont know what it is...BUT I came home...& just thought I AM KIND OF sick & tired of things??

soo have just done a little change re Christians bathroom...(i repainted it last july..but have just changed the colour of the mats...bath towels..from white to charcoal grey...)...BLENDS IN WITH WINTER!! NOT to mention the blue pearl granite~~

looking at my kitchen...kind of sick of it?? want to change it all around again..what do you think??

PLUS i just had to buy these gorgeous vintage scales from MARDYBOY on ebay...

I just love them..?? have temporarily filled the scales with some lemons and apples..
SOOO have decided to sell off my NZ house & garden mags above my stove etc...HOW MANY MAGS can ONE really KEEP???? & MOR photographed!!

anyway...have bought a GORGEOUS GAIL MCCORMACKS white CUP am thinking i shall change the kitchen around to incorporate that..

soo we shall see what happens...

take care...xx andrea...

Gail McCormack said...

I love what you're doing - stay on track, it's looking fabulous - a bit of changing if it makes you happy - but I love your style

Of course you needed a bit of a break - glad you're back though!!

The plane episode sounded a bit scarey - EHK!!

The coffee cup painting will be on its way Monday - thanks Andrea!

Welcome back.
Hey change is as good as aa holiday and often means the opportunity to shop alittle more...
So why not?

The scales are great!
I too love cleaning...
I know we should have therapy for it.
But I do genuinely like clean and tidy!
I will post again when I can think of something to write bout!
Have writers block and my life is less then inspiring...
Can't write too much about chooks and dropping kids to school ect and cleaning all the time.
Ugh! Need inspiration!

Hi Andrea,
Glad to see you back again.

Hm, the bathroom looks very pleasant to my eyes.

As for your kitchen, well, I like it! I think you should come and have a go at mine.LOL

Oh yeah, I should clean out my magazines as well, but I just may need them one day.

Glad you had a few days away with your son to recharge the batteries Andrea.

Love your new vintage scales and I hope you will show us a photo of Gails painting when you put it up.
