I’m Back (well nearly…)

It’s been a while I know, but there have been many issues that have kept me away…

Not least the constant rain and flooding affecting my home and garden – none of which is covered by my insurance. The estimates for repair are huge and as you can imagine – happy blogging was not on my agenda. And there will be no pictures of the damage – I hate my home looking like a building site. One day it will be sorted out – if the rain keeps off!

Add that to my trusty laptop giving up the ghost which meant that I had to get a Windows 8 machine – that’s been a bit of a learning curve and I’m still having problems uploading photos from my Android mobile – they are always the wrong way up!

Alfie had an accident a month ago – my daughter came home in the middle of the day to check on the dogs and found him with a large cut on his hind leg exposing  the muscle. The vet kept him overnight and stitched him up but he has had to lead a very quiet life while it heals…



He has been proper poorly! He says…..


Also managed to decorate my bedroom – that was long overdue – and its amazing how a lick of paint and some nice wallpaper can lift your spirits!



That’s the wallpaper – it has glittery bits in some of the flowers!

It looks so different from the purple walls of before, where I had just covered up the previous owners paper when I moved in while I sorted some of the other rooms.

So – this is really a test post – just to see if the photos stay the right way up!

  1. Hi Kate

    Always happy to see you post. Sounds as though you have been having a few challenges, not least of which is Windows. I only use Apple here, and I am not very adept at computers, so I love having a system I can say “stop it!” to, and it listens. It also asks “do you really want to do this?” when I attempt something ridiculous. Oh well, next time eh?

    I hope the house repairs and the puppy repairs work out for you.

  2. Wow, you have had a lot to deal with. I am sorry about the flooding. The insurance companies will do anything to get out of paying I know, but presumably you’re in an officially vulnerable area? Bad luck. 🙁

    And poor Alfie! Looks as though he ran into the corner of something, doesn’t it? I hope he is healing well!

  3. Hi Jay…. Yep Alfie caught himself on a low guttering – it did have an end cap on but he took it off – it is now padded beyond belief and his wound is healed!

    The house problems i am tackling a little bit at a time!!!

  4. Hello Cortes… nice to hear from you – I quite like computer challenges – except when I’m trying to do something in a hurry!!! My daughter is an Apple fan though – Alf is doing ok now thank goodness and hopefully the weather will stay dry enough for me to get some of the repairs done….
