Still waiting

For anyone who is following my blog, you probably remember my telling you that my other half had promised to try and get a unit made for me to safely store all my nappy cake stuff as it is currently taking up all sorts of room in the house and drove us all mad over the holidays.

Anyway, just to let you know ... I'm still waiting. Being at home I keep looking at the boxes and bags and wishing there was a way of putting it all in some semblance of order.

My idea is to put everything of one type in a separate box which would make it much easier to know what I need to get more of and in what colour. Each box would then slot into its own space in my new super duper unit with maybe a label on the front so I know whats in each box.

I don't want anything made out of expensive materials - just a bit of plywood would be ok after all I could paint it to make it look better and it will go down the far end of the living room so wouldn't be too obvious.

These sorts of units are so expensive to buy and my hubby certainly knows enough people who could make me some quite easily but it still hasn't arrived home with him from work!

Oh well, I'll keep dropping hints and hope for the best. I'll let you know if I get anywhere.

At home

I have to admit I've never been one for sitting at home - in fact I'm really not a very good patient at all!

I am so used to buzzing around being busy busy busy that my brain doesn't know what to do with itself when I suddenly stop. There are only so many times you can walk the dog and I'm now even fed up of reading which is something I have always really enjoyed.

The weather doesn't help - its so miserable today and has just rained non-stop - looking out of the window is quite depressing. To top it all off my tumble dryer decided to give up the ghost on the day when it would be impossible to hang any washing out and I could really do with not having to spend out any money.

Hopefully 2011 isn't going to continue in the way it has started so please keep your fingers crossed for me that things will get better.
