I won a giveaway and some recognition for the blog

Scrumptious swag.......
I won this fabulous collection of goodies which includes all my favourite things too, so thank you Sarah at Happiness is a bottomless button box The ideas have started to flow but I need to work this week, so they are put away for now. I also had some other good news but I must leave that until I have a bit more time to do it justice on here. Meanwhile, I am working on the schedule for my summer job as it were. So tomorrow is the deadline for deciding which mountains I will be climbing from April to October and then I have to post them all up on my other blog. So it was back to earth with a bang this week with more to do than I care to think about, also DH has a bit on his plate and as I am the computer guru round here I have labels to print and websites to update.  But the other thing is we have decided to extend the house again, so I am also checking prices of supplies as I tend to be project manager when we do any building. Well when you consider that the garden is in a mess too and the greenhouse needs a good sort, you start to get the picture.......But I like to be useful around the place and I have done with resting over the holidays I think so I may be busy but I don't mind.

We went to see a Planning advisor at the Town Hall this morning and he seemed to like our methods and approach to the extension so all we need now is to finalise our ideas and DH always does the drawings as he went to a really good Art College (the likes of David Hockney taught there) and was trained in drawing properly so can produce building plans and drawings which are really good. Even the planning guy said how good the previous ones were, not like the one's architects produce on Computers.......he he That's one job less for me.

What a lovely selection of goodies, congratulations.

Good luck with your extension and the Planning process. Hope being in the NP does not make things too difficult for you.
