A Belated Update

I'm sorry I've been quiet recently. I wish I could say it was because I'm busy with the house but, tbh, that's not really it. I've just not really felt like posting much. I still don't but I feel I should say something. I've kinda got stuff I want to write, but at the same time, not having any anonymousity, I feel I don't want to vent, stress and generally feel down. This is my blog, not a personal, private diary and I just don't feel right spilling out my entire personal life at the moment.

The house is a big stress. It's a bigger mess than I remember and there's so much to do. And I have no idea where to begin. I can't make decisions about colours, carpets, anything. And there's so much money needs spending. I'm so scared of it all going wrong.

I'm not really knitting a lot at the moment either. I keep having ideas and adding and rearranging my queue but not much gets done. I have patterns in my head, bursting to get out but I just can't justify knitting time much.

I have bought some stuff for the house though. There's the Ikea sofa, chair, table and chairs and the huge list of stuff that will get bought one day. And I grabbed some stuff off ebay from the local yarn store that just closed down. She was selling off display furniture so I got a dressing table and a wire mannequin. I'm pretty pleased, although need to pick it up.

Well, Andy is away and I don't know what to do with myself

Honey, I both know how you feel and hope it's not as overwhelming as it all sounds. Give me a shout if you need anyone to vent out loud!

Big hugs - sounds like you're going through huge stresses at the moment! Perhaps if you think of doing up the house room by room, rather than tackling it all at one time, it may help. On a practical level, have you got a copy of the Collins DIY book? http://www.amazon.co.uk/Collins-Complete-Manual-Albert-Jackson/dp/0007252609/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1237105713&sr=8-1

It's really helpful.

Also, I love looking at home design websites - the ones I've listed below may not be to your taste, but the do have great links to other websites and I've found them a great springboard for my own ideas.
