Flowering in the bloomin' rain!!

Today after being the supportive and dutiful wifey that I am, I just had to have a break from it all. So a quick wander around Habitat cured me of feeling slightly sick of putting on a cheerful face around TOF. How excited did I get when I picked up this wee coffee table for a sweet $7-50!!  Pretty excited, I can tell you.  Luckily for me Spotlight is just a hop skip and a jump from my place and had just what I required.  Colourful oil cloth, upholstery pins, and my creative juices kicked in.  Like a mad woman possessed I was home with all the necessary tools to get on with my task of transforming a simply plain and dreary table into a bloomin' good thing!!


Pretty stoked with my new bloomin' table, and more so because today was a dreary old wet one.

looking bloomin" gorgeous with my chairs

I don't have a pile of UFOs (unfinished objects), but I have a pile of NFSs (not farking started).  I kind of like to get something and do it straight away while the urge to do it is with me.  Otherwise they end up being shelved.  Now on the good news side of things, and there is some, my computer is back minus a few organs but in working condition.  The IT man told me it may live for 3 days, 3 weeks, 3 months, or possibly even 3 years, there is know way to tell.  What sort of IT guy is he??  Who cares, it is back and I am able to load photos and blog!!! Although for some reason or another it is all set up in BIG print sort of like the Big print books you get from the library.  I have no need for my glasses as it is BIG.  Other good news is my seeds are going good in their cute as little green house, my Beetroot is up.  And as they say, you can beat an egg but you can't beet a root!!
