Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

Eeeeek I'm so excited to be seeing many of you again on Saturday. Plus after the week I'm having getting out of this house and away from my town for a day will be a huge relief and treat. I shall be using my wheelchair to ease the impact on me from driving and it will be more comfortable for me to sit in also. So I shall rely on many of your good nature and kindness to push me about!! No wheelies!! Lol

Desk - 
All the normal goings-on here

Beautiful sunshine on the window side, am deliberately covering the colouring cos I'm working on something for Saturday.

Baxter having his breakfast. The poor thing has been shut in my craft room with me as we are having major work done in the house this week. The bathroom is being ripped out and a wet room put in. Plus we are having a new boiler fitted so there are carpets and floorboards up everywhere!

Here's the bathroom before - 
And here it is all ripped out - 

Will post a pic once it's all finished for you guys to see. No doubt I'll dedicate a whole post to it!

Right am waiting for the men to arrive, despite resting I'm finding the noise and upheaval to be very tiring and I've been in a lot of pain from having to keep going up to my parents to use their bathroom. (Thankfully they live very near, our gardens meet so we have a walk through)

Pop over to The Stamping Ground to join in, find out about Saturday and the anniversary.
See you there if you are going!!
Take care Zo xx

Nan G said...

Do the Reno work gets done sooner than later. Makes it rough when there's only one loo in the house and it's out of order. ;) Do take care going to the crop. Now a wheelie....there'd be a pic for us! Hugs and Happy WOYWW! Nan G #10

Chrysalis said...

A wet room sounds just the ticket for you. We had one put in for my Mum - best alteration we could have had, as it makes life SO much easier. Glad you have the crop to take your mind off all the mess going on - and that your parents are so near, for you to share their bathroom! Have a great week, Chris # 17

Ali H said...

I think your new bathroom will be well worth all the inconvenience, Zo! I hope you have a marvelous time at the Crop on Saturday! Don't get too tired out. Thank you for coming by to visit me!! Hugs, Darnell #29

Hettie said...

Shaz Brooks said...

Hi Zoe, reading the comments, I think you may have more trouble staying in one place long enough to do any crafting, than moving about, lol.Looking forward to seeing you again. Hugs. Shaz xx

Amy E said...

Oh bathroom?!?! Scary! Here's hoping it's finished and working VERY soon! And I'm sure Baxter will love having the run of the house again!

I SO WISH I could go to the crop this weekend! Being half a world away is a bit problematic though! Have FUN for all of us in other countries, and take LOTS of pics!

Happy WOYWW (a day late!)
