Teaser Tuesday-No Teaser Today

I'm back to my daily blogging as of today!!....YeeHaa

Over the last week-ish(?)..heehee I have been busy helping my husband with his loft. We bought the carpet and that is now laid and items that were in there are now in their storage places. The loft is looking FABULOUS! We are very pleased with it. It has taken us some time to get it into a functioning room, not a bedroom because that is more involved and has to pass health and safety inspections even though we do own our home, everyone that wants to change their loft into a bedroom has to have it passed by health and safety but hobby room or storage room in fine. We started off with a loft ladder...obviously...heehee, then electrics; sockets and lights, then the old water tanks had to come out which was just as well because the tank was about to burst any day. Our next door neighbour had just had that exact thing happen to them just a few months prior to us finding out that our tank was about to go...a blessing in disguise that my hubby wanted the loft, but to remove the tanks was a little more involved because we had to change our whole heating system, a bit of a cost but still worth it to avoid a flood if nothing else. We put down a new floor but before we could complete the floor we had to have the chimney removed and a window installed AND apparently when the man came to remove the chimney he said it was looking decidedly dangerous....phew...just in time again! After the chimney was removed we could then floor the rest of the floor where the chimney had gone through. Then insulation which makes a huge difference in the Winter, then a guy had to alter some woodwork and make everything safe, and last but not least, the carpet, it looks GREAT! Worth the time, effort and expense! And it is rather a large loft!
I do want to eventually buy some of those large plastic tubs with lids so I can start and put the stored items in them instead of in old brown cardboard boxes.

I have been buying some more jewellery making items.

Consists of a
Jewellery carry bag with 5 divider boxes
Tool kit
Helping hands
2 DVDs
Booklets and guides
Tool stand

I also bought which are not shown a
ring mandrel
Hammer with nylon ends
And various other bits and pieces

I need to buy more beads, wires, threads etc.

Back to today. I have hung some laundry out on the line and I have just put another load into the machine. I am going to get my bathroom cleaned and my house vacuumed today.
I have had breakfast of oats, dates, banana and hazelnut milk...YUM! I also had some hot lemon and agave:)

Vacuuming all done:)

After watching Mrsleafygreens You Tube video making an asparagus and mushroom meal I now have asparagus marinating in a tad of olive oil and garlic powder for my evening meal.

My evening meal was mushrooms, marinated asparagus and salad...YUM!

well, that is all for now so I will be back tomorrow.
