Monday, Monday - So Good to Me!!!

.......Anyone out there still remember the lyrics!  Well, at least the first verse is true!!

My Monday started out with a phone call from Susan (Minicrochetmad) to say she was going to call around for a cuppa!!  That's a great start to anyone's day, because look what I got!!!

I don't know how you do it Sus - but do it you do!!!!
Oh God, I think I need coffee - but I don't drink coffee!

Thank you so much dear friend - this beautiful tea cosy will sit very prettily in the housekeeper's quarters in Indy's House!   Goes with all the colours too!!  How did you know?

Then later on in the day, Jess and I hopped into the car and drove to Coffs airport, where we took delivery of a very precious bundle.  A chocolate standard poodle puppy - 8 weeks old and just gorgeous.

Not too sure what that camera is doing!!

 And finally - I have returned to working on the Indy House!  It's been a long absence, but I'm on a roll once more.  I have ordered some quarry tiles from Richard Stacey for the kitchen/scullery area and in the meantime have started work on the stove surround/chimney breast.

A lot more claying and painting to do - but I'm so glad to be moving on this once again (thank you for the come-on Catherine!!)

And that's it from me for now!  I hope everyone has a great week.  Talk soon!
