WOYWW - Follow-up from Last Week!!

Hi everyone, followers and WOYWWiggers!!! It's THAT time of the week again when the crafty bloggers of the world unite to bare all... steady!!!  only in their crafty spaces/rooms/floors/desks/suites etc... all courtesy of the lovely Julia, desky-in-chief at Stamping Ground... and where has the time fled to this week, again... ???

I am fast running out of time to get mum's room ready... however, we are doing ok and are nearly there!! Here's my workspace this week, then... mum's room

 This corner is opposite the door into the room, and this lovely new screen will make personal stuff a bit more private for mum. It is very pretty and it's something I have thought of buying for my conservatory for a long while...

 This is the far corner of the room, with the new chest of drawers and mum's tele on top.  I think we shall move the drill etc before she gets into bed, LOL!!!

And here is the far corner at the other side of the window, with her easy chair from home... we went up there Sunday and it was VERY odd, to say the least...ah well!!!  I think we shall have to move the drill boxes when she wants to sit down... ok, it's wearing thin eh!!??

But I am still reeling a little from the burning of the horse box yesterday... if you are interested in the latest tale of woe, see the post below, or click here... sad. sad day, and the boys are still really upset. Jay made a list of all that was lost and took it into school to discuss with his teacher - victim support rang us today, we were referred from the police - perhaps it would do the boys good to have a chat to someone neutral about their loss...

Anyway, I have to go today, and pay for the van windscreen to be mended from Sunday's trip, as we had a stone chip it and they are making me cough up £145!!! It has made it a VERY expensive trip to get mum's stuff!!!! Oh well, bring on the next bad thing...

Please send calming, healing vibes for shattered nerves and hacking cough!! I know everything will be ok, but it's getting very difficult to trust and keep the faith... there is a purpose but I can't see it just now!!!
Love and light
Frankie

PS - I WILL do crafting soon, I promise, meanwhile don't stop coming to visit, please. xx

Stay positive about everything else and don't be waiting for anything else to happen. You've certainly already had more than your share.

You have made your mum's room lovely all it needs are some flowers, my mother used to love flowers so much. You are having a difficult time sometimes the rug is just pulled out from under us, there is no purpose it just happens, I hope things improve for you soon. Laura

Ann B said...

Very comfy looking room and such a pretty screen, I'm sure your Mum will be as snug as a bug in there. So sorry to hear about the horsebox - barstewards!

Twiglet said...

Your mum's room looks really cosy Frankie and I am sure she won't mind moving the drill around - lol. Sad news about your horse box - what possesses folk to do such a wicked thing to someone else's property. Positive vibes winging your way. x Jo

Oh Frankie! *hugs from across the ocean*! Darned hoodlums. At least it was just the lorry and not the horses that were hurt by the fire! Those boys just need to know that they will win more ribbons and bigger ribbons (I know that it does not really help)...Mum's room looks great! Hope that she appreciates what you are doing for her. The craftiness will come... We tend to joke over here that our family is Irish, and we must have stepped on a leprechaun before we got on the boat, because if it weren't for bad luck, we'd have none at all. Been to Ireland lately? -Amanda #21

The room looks so cosy. All your efforts to make it so will be rewarded. Your Mum will be delighted I am sure. So sorry to read about the fire you had. You are all going to have to get back out there to replace those rosettes! I hope you are able to recover some of your loses from the insurance. Thinking of you all.
