Thanks for continuing to stop by and leave me little comments as and when – it really does make my day! I’m surprised that you haven’t given up on me what with my long absence from blogland – and just as I was getting back in the swing of things too. It’s been ages since I stopped in and let you know my news – something which the 52 weeks of happy posts were doing so beautifully. I am so ridiculously far behind on them now – I think I’m beyond the point of no return.
The last few months have been a busy time here in The House of Jones. Work has been hectic – which is partly why I haven’t been blogging. After a day on the computer at work, I just couldn’t seem to face logging on again to write. We’ve also had the builders in doing jobs on the house (mainly carpentry-type things like built in shelving and new internal doors), and with that has come the daily decision-making which diverted my attention to a world of door furniture and shelving-design.
That’s not to say I haven’t managed to fit some craft in though – I’ve been working on a little something ready to give as a Christmas present. A crocheted something, but requiring the sewing machine too. I will show you once it has been given! I’m pretty pleased with how it’s turned out – especially the bit on the sewing machine as it doesn’t come easily to me.
And I’ve also been incredibly busy with another important project – probably the most complicated thing I’ve ever made. It hasn’t required too much thought on my part, it’s just sort of making itself, but it has been ever so tiring… perhaps you can guess?
Yes, I’m completely overjoyed to tell you that The Bert and I are having a baby!! We’re terribly excited and can’t wait to meet the little one in mid-February. My mind is already full of little projects that I’d like to make, I mustn’t get too carried away!
Well, I’m afraid just a fleeting visit from me today – I’m off to meet some old school friends in the pub (just a soft drink for me!), our Christmas Eve tradition to get-together. But I hope to be back again to share more news with you once the festivities have died down.
So that just leaves me to wish you all a wonderfully happy Christmas, whatever you are doing and wherever you are in the world. Enjoy the festivities and thank you for your friendship this year.
