Card & Gift Winner ...

Hi Everybody,

What a lovely day it is here and today we are going to look for tiles for the new kitchen so that we can get the walls and floor finished and it's going to look lovely

I have my dining room back to normal again. The carpets have been shampooed and it looks like home 

So the room has gone from this .....

Back to this ... 
It seems to have been a long haul but I know it will be worth it in the end.

Tomorrow I will be taking Ruby for her long Sunday morning walk.

This is not the only exercise she gets .... she is out twice everyday with Griff and he takes her to the park to play with her friends.

Then every Wednesday she goes to Doggy Day care

But Sunday morning is my special time with her and we go out for a few hours with Vickie and Dougal.

Enough of my ramblings ... let me tell you who has won yesterdays draw for the card and gift on offer.

Today's winner is
Brenda Hopkins ( Littlelamb)
please email me your postal address to 
and they will be on their way to you straight away.

Next week I will have some exciting news to share with you so be sure to come back and see what it is ..

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

    Christina, I so envy you having your project almost done. I want to have my kitchen remodeled, but just dread having to go through all of the decisions and then upheaval. Can't wait to see the finished kitchen, although I must confess I loved it before the remodel.

    Good luck with the tile selection Christina, you'll be so pleased to have your dining room back!
