"New Pin"...




Hi girls,  the snow's finally left us so yesterday I decided I would give the house a good clear out as it was rather messy!!! Now,  there's Mr Lucey, Me,  3 doggies and... Roger the lodger...only kidding he's not a real lodger he's our lovely 25 year old  son .  J seems like a "roger the lodger " in that he sleeps out more than he sleeps in these days, he's either out partying or he's at a girls house, not a girlfriend you understand just a girl   friend  and he's nocturnal as he seems to only go out when I'm off to bed. Anyway  getting back to the cleaning how can 2 1/2 people and 3 dogs make so much mess  we only live in a 3 bed semi not a mansion but it took me all day and there was 2 trips to the skip involved, I must admit when I'd finished the house shone like a new pin!!! So today was the "outside" part of clearing up but.... yes you've guessed ...it snowed in the night so I'm staying indoors with a cup of hot choccy...blast the calories, and I can't decide if I should  read some of the lovely books I got for christmas or... to try out the crochet, decisions... decisions.

Bye for now

love Lucey xx

Lucey,
I would love it if you were to pop in for a cup of cocoa! It would make my week! And very tough choice, reading or creating something crocheted... Both wonderful options!

I had a mad moment of housework ,yesterday,when I washed all the floors...boy did it need doing!!
Mind you, when I stood back and admired the clean and shiny look,it was worth all the effort!
;-)
P.S. I too have a 'Roger the lodger' of exactly the same age!

Well done you for getting the house so clean. I have really good intentions, make a start, then get distracted... Must try harder! xx

I'm supposed to be cleaning today, but instead I'm off out for shopping, coffee and cake!
Thanks for your comment in my blog - my wristwarmers are in stocking stitch and were very easy to knit.
