Morning!  Wow folks, that's another month of 2012 hit the dust, where does the time go?  We had another busy day yesterday.  In the morning we ordered our new kitchen (the one we have is 20 years old!!!) which will be installed once we are back from Spain so you will no doubt hear all about it at a later date.  After that we went to Callander to pick up my car which is all sorted and thankfully didn't cost me an arm and a leg!

I'm going into town this morning to get some bits and pieces and then to the hairdresser in the afternoon so that I don't have any grey hairs showing when I'm on my holibobs.  After all that I can't see any crafting getting done today but hopefully tomorrow.
