Moved and sad news....

Well just to update you all....the move did not go very well...We Keith,Jack and I had to got back to Suffolk as a few things got left behind.....good job we did as the removal men that should have disconnect the washing machine did not turn off the water....and water all over the kitchen floor...

Then a week after I moved my Beautiful cat Bailey was not looking to good....off to the Vets here in Shoeburyness....he had Congestive heart failure and at 15 is was kinder to put him to sleep....as Ive not got a garden as I'm in rented....I had him cremated and picked up him ashes the day before my birthday....he will go into the garden at my new home...

The desk I ordered on the 2 June.....quick to take my money has not come ....phoning...emailing a nightmare....DO NOT ORDER from this company as I think its in another county...odd emails?

Lucky for me I paid with my credit card so been on to my bank....also been on to Ebay and got a new desk hopefully here on Tuesday.....have to work on top of two small filling cabinets.... not good for my neck.....and I miss not crafting....

The best bit of this week I had a Birthday...with lots of card 37 from family, friends and my buddies on the web and over on DC....I want to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for the cards and messages....Hugs to you all....Joolsx

Moving Day....

Hello to all my web friends and buddies...

 My moving day has come.....at last I hear you all say.....thank you all for sticking with me though this very trying time....My hate of estate agents is a all time high.....Purple Bricks are awful.....and the others not much better....For the time being I and my Puddy Cats are going into to rented while I try and buy house number 5.....I feel so upset at all the monies I have wasted.....

No more of that....I be off line for a week or so ...but will catch up with you as soon as I can....for the time being here is a photo of Jules....the Tawny owl who is now outside....Keith got up 2am on her/him 1st night out to see if he/she was ok....no  worries....we think she is a girl as she is very bossy...and has took over one of the box's in the aviery.....cheeky owl....
I must sign off now as lots of packing to do.....Talk soon....Joolsx

Thinking of you...

Hello...I can not believe it's Friday again.......
Two lots of news to tell you ...
Went to the doctors about my hip/knee pain which is getting  me down...big time...saw a gorgeous doctor...not good when you are a old  lady!! but I can dream...and had to take off my trousers...lol....Anyway he a bone doctor at the hospital in Ipswich....so it looks like I got the right man for the job ....and I got to have a new knee...which I said I would think about it...

The 2nd news is I still waiting to move and I thinking about pulling out of the house in Shoeburyness and renting for 6 mths...It will mean moving twice...which will be a pain....but hopefully I get some where I like...and be near to Keith and the owls...and will be a lot easier journey  to see my brother in London...

Right on to the card....All the card from Hobby House...Spellbinders dies...flowers Die-namics and Sue Wilson... Sizzix flourish..and some pearls...

Thank you for lending a ear on my update and the time to leave me a comment... Keith will be here over the weekend with baby bird...so I will take some more photos and you can see how she/ he is doing...Joolsx
