Fluff

My computer is very sick ... flat battery, no charge and overheating because it's full of fluff (a bit like me!)

The cottage is full of dust and mess as we've started the last of the HUGE jobs in the cottage (bedroom, loft, stairs and living room) and I'm not coping too well with everything right now

I've over-committed to challenges in blogland but determined to meet the deadlines despite everything around me. I've not been a very good blog buddy lately but I hope to put that right when I've sorted things out ...

So I will be back as soon as I can - and I will catch up with YOU soon because I want to stay in touch and I will try to get to my emails somehow ...

Thanks always for all your lovely comments that keep me going!

Miss you already!

Do have a relaxing time de-fluffing! I can understand...our laptop is getting there. We really need a new battery. I sympathise with the house too. You should see our mess, and expecting a friend tomorrow...busy night tonight!

Good luck with all the deadlines. Enjoy yourself dear one, please do.

xo,
Jeana

Aileen Clarke Crafts said...

Oh, I hate it when my surroundings are up-in-a-heap. Really gets to me and makes everything else feel ten times worse.
Hope it all becomes calmer soon.
Love Aileen.

Sending you lots of love Carolyn xx

Cathie said...

ooooooh but just think of how nice it will be when it's all cleaned, organized and fresh. Nothing more mentally cleansing that getting your life (and all your stuff) in "order." Such a great feeling. We "spring clean" about 6x a year - really.

I can't believe I hadn't seen Thursday's beautiful post... full of colour & kisses - lovely !

Pom Pom said...

Yikes! Fluff! Take care, good one. You'll find respite soon enough, I believe. Your promises are so sound and true.

silverpebble said...

Oh no, it all sounds rather grim Carolyn. Keep heart, eat choclate, drink wine and get out to the sea often x

Cathy said...

Sorry to hear about that naughty computer Carolyn. I hope it gets sorted soon. Don't worry about your blog when you have other, more pressing matters to attend to. No-one is going anywhere.
