An Unexpected Weekend

Well, last weekend started with Major Disaster ...


... but ended up FABulous!

My DH arrived home from work last Friday to find a scene of utter devastation - the ceiling over the stairwell in our little cottage had thrown itself down the stairs in a fit of pique and you wouldn't belIEVE how far plaster dust can travel and the nooks and crannies it can find its way into ...

It took us both a good couple of hours to put everything back to rights. Here's the hole it left behind ...


As John pointed out - half the work is already done :o)
Whilst clearing up, I was dusting off some of my little treasures and I remembered a time some years ago when my life was in a state of continual chaos and a very dear friend gave me a little Buddha. She told me to just create one small calm space, focus on that and let everything else fall into place. I still feel that sense of calm and wellbeing when I look at my little Buddha collection on the mantelpiece ...


Anyway, the weekend turned out to be even MORE exciting than that!
Saturday was my younger son Tom's 30th birthday (really canNOT believe it!) and he came to stay for the whole weekend - I didn't even know he was coming until the Saturday morning so it was all very exciting.



With my newfangled workroom, it's possible to slide a couple of storage units out of the way to make room for a little fold-out guest bed - Tom threatened to play havoc with my OCD by rearranging some of my drawers ... but I THINK he was joking!

So we had a lovely weekend, but all the catching up I had planned to do went straight out of the window of course - betterofferitis strikes again! You have to make hay while the sun shines don't you?! :o)xxx
