Why does everything go wrong at once?

First the telephone stopped working and we are waiting for an engineer sometime next week. Then, while clearing out one of the kitchen cupboards, we discovered that it was collapsing and needed urgent repair work to stop a disaster. My husband struggled manfully, holding up the cupboard while fixing the legs and I wiped things down. Went to rinse out my microfibre cloth and discovered there was no hot water. Yep, the boiler has packed in and so we have no heating either. The earliest British Gas can get out to us is Monday. Oh joy!

Adding to the annoyance, the kettle is being temperamental and only working when it feels like it, the cooker is refusing to light and I'm having to use matches, the cancerous lump in Sophie's ear has started bleeding which is probably the beginning of the end and E's girlfriend can no longer live with her half-sister and wants to stay here 'temporarily'.

Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2012

In a bid to be more productive I've signed up for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Not sure what kind of block I'd like to make but this beautiful quilt caught my eye. I don't think I've got the fabrics to do it justice sadly. Maybe one day.

Arrgghh!!! All the pictures are huge and table breaking, even on the smallest size. Trying to sort things. And fixed. :D

My desk is a tip

I've done quite a lot of cooking and sewing in the lead up to Christmas as most of the gifts I was giving were home-made. This has left my desk a huge mess.

So my project for the next couple of days is to get it sorted out and cleaned up. Maybe get round to the filing while I'm at it! Then I can get on with some sewing.

New Year, new start!

Going to try and keep up with my blog a little better this year. I wonder how well I will do.
