WOYWW - Cheating Again!!!

Well, that week went by  like the clappers which means I only have another and two days before mum is whisked off in a puff of smoke and lands here in her new home!!! HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! For those who are in the dark, please see my previous post. Yep, mum is coming to live with us... eeekkk, frightening...!!! So what do I have for your delectation this week, chez Julia at Stamping Ground...?? well it's this...


 And the cupboard was bare!!! We have stored the stuff in the boxes and the men are coming on Wednesday dinner time to take the furniture etc off to storage. The top, middle cupboard is a booze cupboard, with a dropleaf door... the booze is now relegated to the garage!!! Gulp!!

Standing in the doorway, this is the view into the room, with yet another empty cupboard... to your right, but out of shot, is the previous cupboard...  So this is my workspace this week, getting the room cleared and making room for new stuff, coming on Thursday... Those eagle eyed amongst you will spot my Misty "Fluffy" cat - the grey one of the kittens I thought would die cos of his poorly back legs... just look at him!!! Big fluffy lump!!! He thinks he is staying in here, but I am about to disabuse him!!!

Well that is it for today. Not much crafting done, I'm afraid, but I WILL get to it soon, when I have done a few more phone calls, filled in more forms and sorted more stuff!!!... please keep sending those great vibes to keep me going, I can feel them and really appreciate it...
Love and Light
Frankie

A daunting period ahead of adjustments all round I would hazard a wild guess? I just had my mum for 6 weeks visit and it did give me an idea of what it would be like to have her permanently... less said about that really!! Hope you all get sorted very soon and you can still craft!! Annette #11

Helen said...

Good luck sorting everything out for your mum, and don't forget to be you once in a while! Hope you get time to craft soon. in the meantime, much love.

jude said...

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Well done you for taking her in, cos it's going to be a tough one. I think Helen's comment is so true, don't lose sight of what you want either. Good luck with dealing with the suthorities too, that needs the guile and strength of Hercules!!
Keep smiling, sending you love and hugs,

So your garage becomes your little hideaway?
Hope everything goes well with your Mum's move and you don't forget to have some time for yourself.

Hope all goes well with you and your Mom moving in. It will be a big adjustment I'm sure but we'll help keep you sane (or should that be the opposite?) take care.

Whats this about the garage? Oh no gets too cold out there so you will need your mum's stash to deal with it. Hope your Mom adjusts well to the move. I told my daughter I am so fixed in my ways she will have her hands full moving me!! Have a great week and thanks for sharing. Vickie #64

GLENDA BROOKS said...

Good luck to you girl! Hope you guys adjust quickly! And remember the booze is in the garage!

Shoshi said...

Hope everything goes OK with moving your mum in, Frankie, and that all goes well in the future. It can be a tough adjustment. We are thinking of sharing a place with my very elderly parents when we retire... Not something I desperately relish but it is probably the best solution for all of us. Getting them to agree to move in the first place is going to be tough, I think! Anyway, if things start to get desperate for you, you can always take a quick trip out to the garage, can't you!! Lol lol. Happy WOYWW, Shoshi #70

Sam said...

I thought I was about to read about your mum in a different way when you said "whisked off in a puff of smoke"!!!! I don't envy you at all. I had to live with my MIL for 18 months until she moved out!!! Less said......!
Keep your chin up!!

P.S. I just noticed you are from Solihull - my favourite ex-boss was from there too! And it is only a short hop from mine if you need to hop!

lisa said...

Looks like you are very busy, Frankie. What an upheavel but you are doing a very special thing.
Good Luck with it all and sending you lots of love.
Hugs Lisax

Not an easy thing to do but family must come first. Hope it all goes well and that you're ok, you're still going to need an outlet for yourself, maybe take Sam up on her offer?

ScrappnBee said...

Does that mean that you will spend much time in the garage? I had SIL+2 small kids for 9 mos. *hugs* ...*more hugs and joining you in the garage!* YOu can do it!!!! Happy WOYWW- Amanda#7

Susan Flynn said...

Your mum is very lucky to have a daughter like you. I'm sure it will be a big adjustment for everyone concerned but I hope everything works out well and there's always the garage for a bit of r and r!

Angie said...

Good luck with everything ...hope you all get on ...it will take time to adjust but it will be great once your mum finds her niche. xx

Julia Dunnit said...

It is a great thing that you're doing for your Mum Frankie, and I hope that everything is settled with a minimum of trauma for you all...it's been hard, huh.

Sarah said...

Wow Frankie, that is a major shift in the universe. I hope all the prep work goes well as that you all feel settled and at home real soon. maybe you'll end up creating together!!!Thanks for sharing a little of your life and desk! Sarah at 14

Oh a big adjustment, your garage does have central heating doesnt it? never mind the upheaval and re-arranging will be done soon, and you will have some time to craft and relax,

Happy WOYWW
