Nothing says thank you
like a small flamingo.
You may recall I made Leon a "from vlad to bat". Well, Leon took him to work and it lives on his desk. Apparently every night he turns it to the Vampire side, and every morning he turns it back to the bat side. His boss thought the whole thing was so hilarious he made me a certificate of recognition. Since I didn't want him to feel left out, I made him a flamingo.
Why you might ask, is he surrounded by rulers? Leon's boss "built a pen for him, so he can't fly away".
So, last week Leon and I bought a house! Well, actually a perfectly sized flat. The thing about our perfectly sized flat is that it’s a bit smaller than our current rather home – where we live now is a giant flat built in the 1960s. We’ve got loads of space, a dining room, a garage and a storage room. Unfortunately, not too much maintenance has been done on the place in the last three decades. The place we’ve bought is lovely – 15 years old, with a new kitchen, views to forever and nothing is falling apart. But it’s got a carspot, and room for a dining table in the living room.

I'm destashing as if we are moving into the carspot, rather than the flat! All our CDs –GONE. All the DVDs –given away, books - bye bye...
It’s been really interesting, especially in relation to my crafting things. I’ve got quite a lot of spinning fibre, and I’m…
Last week Ginny announced that, after 6 years, she was finishing the yarnalong. . I’ve been participating since December 2013 ; over three years. It’s bittersweet – doing the Yarnalong has given me a good structure to my blogging and I’ve loved reading about what Ginny, and all the other members of the yarnalong get up to every week. But this is a time of change for me – some very exciting things have happened, which I can’t share here quite yet. It’s a time for letting go, and for new beginnings. So I leave you with one last photo of my kindle and my knitting, and I say “thank you” to Ginny, and everyone else who have brightened my Wednesdays for the last 6 years.
