More decorating!

Here we go again! Why is it when you complete one room the rest of the house looks like it needs a paint job? We have been planning to do the living room for a while now. I must of had my baby brain on when we first moved to this house as I chose a very modern suite and furniture. It was lovely, but I'm a country style girl at heart so out with the old and in with the new.
We had to paint(I say we but I really mean DH)the walls white yesterday to cover the brown(baby brain!) and already it looks better. Painter coming tonight to start all the woodwork and the hopefully start the papering. I love wallpaper, I have chosen a gold stripe this time, to match my new red sofa.
This is what it looks like today. Will keep you updated on the progress!

What was I thinking!!

Went to a fantastic ball last night in aid of JDRF. My DH and best friends daughter are diabetic insulin dependent so we support this charity in the bid to find a cure. My girls have a one in twenty chance of developing type one diabetes so lets hope they can find that cure fast. The ball was a great success, lets hope they made loads of money.
The theme this year was an Indian one. The ball room was beautiful and we were all given bindi's to wear!! Didn't take my camera -doh!
However after a few drinks I decided it would be fun to have a henna tattoo!!!!

I have to go to work with this!! My class will be stunned!

Elaine's Birthday Blog Candy

Two posts in one day!! Whoo Hoo!
I forgot to mention earlier to please visit my friend Elaine's blog to enter her blog candy giveaway(see sidebar for link. Elaine is a Stampin' Up demonstrator and is celebrating a year in the job! I would have done this a lot sooner if I knew how to! Kirsti came round today to help me!(again!) Thanks Kirsti!


Hope you all had a lovely Easter. We went to our caravan in Findhorn for the school hols. Usually Findhorn has it's own little micro climate and generally the sun always shines, however, it was not to be! Last Tuesday we decided to come home as the weather was taking a turn for the worst, so we packed up and headed off. We got as far as Elgin when the road signs told us that the A96 was closed due to snow! Snow? At Easter? What is it with this country? So we headed back to ride it out. We watched endless DVD's while outside it was horizontal sleet! Also spent a fortune entertaining the girls, bowling, ice skating, play barns etc. Think it might have been cheaper to go abroad to the sun!
The second week was better and DH came to join us. Lots of long walks on the beach collecting shells and building sand castles. Went to a spring fair where the girls got to see baby lambs and rabbit and of course have their faces painted!

Not done any crafting for ages, going to try to make a bit more time for myself, that is after I have tided the garden. Oh and we have finally finished the playroom. All the furniture arrived at the weekend so we were busy at it building and tidying. What do you think? And how long do you think it will stay tidy?!
