now this is my 500th post ..... now i should be all excited and have lots of fun things to help celebrate but due to the nightmare week i have had i have decided to make my 505th post one to celebrate just because i should be getting back to normal by then !!

So for all those following the heating saga here's today's update .... we have a new fire with a proper mantelpiece ... we have new radiators all but 2 are working beautifully .... we do have a clunky noise when you flush the upstairs loo and run the tap at the same time ... so yes there are some things to work out but we can now start to decorate some of the rooms but more importantly i can sew ... YAY !!!

There is some good news i have had 2 sales on folksy this week which is good , if you haven't visited Folksy yet ... why not its full of gorgeous gifts !!!

At least it's not winter - right? I hope the clunking stops soon, and you have a perfectly working new central heating system!
