A Little Well Done To Moo & I

It seems FOREVER since I’ve been in Blogland, I do hope you are all fighting fit and at one with the world. While I’ve been missing I have been ever sooo busy, The Cottage On The Green renovations have been moving apace ~we have seen the light at the end of the tunnel and have carpets upstairs !! it’s only taken 10 yrs …yes you have read that right 10 YEARS to get this far LOL. Moo is changing bedrooms and I thought what better time to teach him a little DIY

Moo does DIY
Moo doing a fantastic job rebuilding his bed, his next job is to hoover up all the bits of carpet shredding’s LOL

Obviously I checked the bolts had been tightened but he did the rest himself 🙂

What else have I been up to ? studying of course

award ceremony
My good-self being awarded a ‘People Moving & Risk Assessment Key Trainer certificate’ by Councillor Bradwell ~Executive Councillor for Adult Care, Health and Children’s Services

Having passed my Train the Trainer in Moving & Handling ( Train the Trainer First Aid next) I have been offered the position of ‘Training Officer’ not just for the home I work at but for THE WHOLE COMPANY!!! OMGoodness I’m more than a little proud at my career growth ….and a touch surprised if the truth be told 🙂

If that wasn’t enough I’m surrounded by no less than 4 mum’s to be so have been sneaking in a little sock knitting for tiny people paws

little socks
Each pregnant lady will receive a couple of pairs of super cute socks ~ either gender specific or neutral depending on their preferences

I do hope not to leave it too long before I post again, thank you for calling by the cottage to keep me company x

The Bartering System

Before I set upon my quest to learn how to knit socks I used to gaze in awe at the skills of a certain crafting goddess I met here on WordPress ~ one Tajana Rabar  you name it from crochet to knitting to cooking to embroidery the woman can turn her hand to ANYTHING anyhoo I longed for some lacy knee high socks …as you do

I got in touch with Tajana and we came to an agreement ~ bartering par excellence, she would buy the yarn and whip me up a pair of socks in return for something she longed for

Bartering goodies
Tajana had really set her heart upon a Chanel lipstick in a VERY fetching shade of red and a set of Karbonz sock needles and so the deal was sealed

Many an eager hour was spent by the pair of us each hardly being able to contain ourselves at the thought of being the owner of something dear to our hearts, in due course a parcel arrived from Italy & I claimed my prize

Socks from Tajana
Are these not just the most gorgeous socks in the whole world ???

I still have to master how to take a cool photo of my own legs though !!!

Many thanks to the bartering system both Tajana & I have something to treasure, thank you Tajana for the socks they are the most beautiful, soft, comfortable foot wear known to man ❤
