feels like heaven...

it has been nearly a month dear readers since our paths have crossed, in that time i have done christmas, two birthdays (hard to see your first born turn sixteen), and had my lovely parents to stay.
we then packed up and moved our belongings and pets, with the help of friends, passing strangers, a nearby mule and cart, (okay that last one wasn't technically the truth but it sounded good) and a 'U-Haul' van to Mossy Shed...since then i have been distracted from 'day to day' life by one thing and one thing only...

i am in love...

yes it is true to say i have started a love affair with my lovely mock tudor number...i see nothing but good things everywhere i turn. every morning i wake up (twelve mornings to be precise) and i say to my man "i can't quite believe i am actually living here" to which he replies under the depth of the duvet and several blankets (our bedroom is not the warmest place to be) "neither can i, neither can i"

so in a space of hours, ney make that minutes, of claiming mossy shed for ourselves, i set about 'nesting'...and in between feathering our little nest, used dog and i have been rambling along the roadside, her in her collar, me in my pink knitted hat (disguising wild unkempt hair) and 'old bag lady' coat...

so that brings us up todate...i have also made a big long list of priorities for mossy, but strangely the room that is being worked on first is my little studio space..."well fancy that" i hear you say...i shall post a few pics soon (by soon i mean when i have located the relevant cord for transporting my pics from camera to computer) then you can see the new headquarters of dottie angel.
in the meantime i must tell you, we only suffered one casualty in the move...deep breaths, dear readers...i must report that Miss Josphina Lola (my beautiful door) suffered a rather nasty gashy wound to her top front half. as i lent her against the garage wall to mourn the moment of discovery (remember her beautiful granny knicker color and that 'nobody loves you like i do' moment way back when i first set eyes on her)
my man says "don't be silly Tif, it's only a chip"...
"a chip," says i "only a chip...do you realize how fantastically fantastic Miss Josphina Lola's paint color is, i do not believe you have ever stopped to think about it before"
"nope, that is very true, i do not recall ever taking time to think about the color of that old door"
gasp..."i think i need to be by myself"...

she's wishing you all a belated happy new year ~ Tif

Our door that we discovered TOGETHER? I hope she has not been cast away because of one little blemish or "age spot" which is merely a sign of her getting more experience out in the world...

SO SO SO glad you're back. Now don't forget to check out the Christmas pictures of my Mom's on my blog when you get a chance, as I put them up there just for you!

Congratulations! I just chuckle every time I read your blog...you are just so witty :-)! And I will never look at another gnome again without thinking of your pesky gnome and all his adventures in London (and your little Christmas visitors). I hope you are having lots of fun "nesting" in your dream home - how lovely!

why thank you all for you kindness...i am so very glad to be back and i have missed you as well...

i have asked our #1 if she knows the whereabouts of the 'camera cable' but she is none the wiser...i shall place this at the top of my priority list, but first a cup of tea and a sit down with 'used dog' is in order...whilest our #1 collects the others from school...in the CAR!!!!!!!!!

I saw someone with a little shopping basket on wheels the other day, and it wasn't nearly cute as yours, and thought of you and wondered how you're doing in your mossy little place. good to have you back. :)

Glad to hear that the move to the Mossy Shed went well. Sorry to hear about Miss Josphina Lola's nasty wound, I'm sure that she will recover from it soon.
