Decorating Drudgery and Blog Candy Wins

Hello All,

I've been rather quiet on the blogging front of late. My unemployment has given me the ideal opportunity to embark on some long overdue decorating.

The kitchen/diner is in progress at the moment and then I intend to continue in the sitting room. The kitchen is in chaos and therefore meals are very much hit or miss. As you can see from the Oven Pride box I've also tackled the disgrace that was my oven and I'm pleased to report it has come up like new. It's so clean it's almost got the 'ring of confidence'.(ting) I'd not used this product before but can highly recommend it.

The ceiling and cutting in are finished now, so it's rollers away tomorrow.

Much more exciting this week was the arrival of a parcel containing some Hero Arts blog candy I recently won from Bumblebee. ( Go take a look-see at her fabulous cakes.)

I've been lucky enough to have another couple of wins in the last few months, more recently this gorgeous bag from Jane, (handles now getting a bit grubby due to high usage!)

and a box filled to the gunwales with crafty goodness from Godelieve, which included these fab stamps. How lucky am I ?

On the subject of Blog Candy, Fliss has some up for grabs over on Stampers Chef, so get yourselves over there now.

I'm off now to see if I can find the fridge under all the dust sheets and cobble a meal together.
