"Too much sanity may be madness. And maddest of all,
to see life as it is and not as it should be!"
Miguel de Cervantes, Don Quixote

Well, now i know i'm going absolutely "DOOLALLY"! I went out to the kitchen earlier today to put the kettle on for a cuppa, i filled it with water and flicked the switch....or did I? When i went back into the shop lovely Jo (Twiglet popped in for a visit and we chatted for a little while. After she left i went to make the tea and couldn't find the kettle anywhere!!!!! After searching the kitchen for a good few minutes i eventually found it in the fridge!!! No idea what happened there...but it's been coming on for a while!!!

Just thought i'd share this photo with you, it's the new cupboard we bought for the shop, Gav sold one of our lovely dressers and the lady's been waiting for about six weeks so we thought we'd better get a replacement. This was at the Montgomery auction in the town hall on Wednesday just gone, so we bought it, squeezed it into the kitchen (spiders an' all) on Wednesday afternoon until the shop closed at 6pm, then lugged it around to the shop and painted it. It needed six hours drying in between coats so, at 1am we were up again slapping on another coat of paint and then up early in the morning to arrange it in the shop ready to be open for 10.00am (thats why i'm going mad)- ones noticed yet!!! Those vintage quilts look gorgeous draped over the doors, i had three, but sold a blue one last week, the backing on it was made out of old flour sacks (i cried when it would have looked so good on my bed).

C'est la vie!
