I am a bad blogger

Many apologies for the lack of blogging in the recent weeks. Firstly, there was only intermitent , expensive internet connection at the hotel in Austria. (Also, I had to use a German keyboard which meant everything took twice as long to type. The keys are not where I expected them to be!!!)

BTW - Austria was lovely. We were in a ski resort near Salzburg. I even managed to find 3 yarn shops. More about that later.

Secondly, I got a call from our builder who decided to move up the renovations from April/May to next week. We are having the top floor redesigned to accomodate the new arrival. We need the room!! Anyway, one of the rooms upstairs is currently the "dump" room, ie throw things in and wait for dust to gather. This has been happening for the last 10.5 years. I now have less than 1 week to clear out 10 years of mess. ARRGGHHHH! What's worse, this is the main room where I have been hiding my HUGE stash of yarn and books. Where am I going to hide 300 balls of yarn??? Most of my hiding spaces already contain yarn. Double ARRRGGGGHHHH!!!

Thirdly, clearing out junk has meant that I'm moving things from the second floor into the ground floor. Because I'm pregnant, I can't carry too much. So this has meant numerous trips up and down the steps. I am knackered! In fact, I can barely keep my eyes open at the moment. I'll have a more coherent and cheery post soon.

I bet if you reorganized your stash and fondled it as you did that, you'd feel a ton better!

I guess you'll just have to send some of that yarn stateside.

Gosh and I thought I was bad, not even with my online shop I have 300 balls of yarns! By the way many congratulations, I hope everything is going well.

Hope you're making good headway and not pushing yourself too hard. Am in the midst of the same task which I thought would take a day!! Hmmm ... finishing off Day 3 now and still loads to go:( Can't believe how much cr*p we've gathered or how much the 2 built-in wardrobes used to hide before MrB ripped them out when he started renovations. Can't wait till he finshes them though!!!! Does 3 years 'in progress' sound like patience???

Roll the yarn down the stairs.
