Hello all.  To say it's been a busy week is an understatement but it's been a great one.  All the flooring went down to plan and our visitors arrived from Holland and after 5 wonderful days together over Easter they went home Monday after lunch.....life should be filled with days like that.

For those wanting pics here is a collage of our new flooring......

 It's the same neutral coloured carpet on the living room and bedroom floors and then the rest are fitted with a tile effect vinyl flooring.....we are thrilled with the results and it will all look really lovely when we can get the papering and painting finished now.  I think we are actually able to see the light at the end of the tunnel now.

Of course what you really came to see is my work desk isn't it?  I have to say my sewing room has seen no action over the last week so this is the desk I'm sharing today...

There is always knitting on the go here and of course I now have a little reason to knit for.....I can't have the next little family member arriving with no Nanny Annie knitting waiting for it can I?

That's all from me for today so if you leave me a little message to let me know you've called by I will do my best to get over to yours as soon as I can.

The floors down must be just so dreamy and I always love to sit and enjoy the new things we add into our spaces it's a rewarding feeling to have it all done and awe how sweet of you to knit a little sweater for the newest addition of your family hugs Nikki 2

Knitting helps me relax in the evening Annie & also stops me from falling asleep. while watching t.v.

All is looking good on the home front Annie. You have the same firesurround as my sister in law.
Listening to you talk about your clan reminds me so much of my fellow craft club member Marie, she is like your twin haha.
Looking forward to seeing the decorating when it's done

So good to hear that it all worked out for you in time for your visitors. Pleased too that you all had a good few days together. I bet your knitting was a great relaxant for you midst all the stress. It's good to pick it up and do a row!

Great pictures of your new floors! Also the knitting really caught my eye. I would love to learn but have crocheted for years. Glenda #30

Morning Annie, your flooring does look good, nice and simple and fresh.
Glad your Dutch visitors had a good time and you enjoyed yourself with them, it really is special when you have times like that from which memories are made.
Your knitting looks good, how many have you made for the new addition?
Bless you for sharing.

I'm glad you had a good time with your visitors.
The floors look great. I like that vinyl in the bathroom. Sometimes I hunker for carpets on the floor, but here in Spain it just isn't practical!
Thanks for visiting already,
Happy WOYWW and have a great week

Sharon said...

Lovely flooring. Glad it got done.

Lovely knitting. I'm not good with cream or white - seem to make a mess of it lol.

I'm glad you had such a lovely time with your visitors, Annie and your floors look lovely. It sounds like it all went to plan.
I had to smile at you being called Granny Annie. My very grown up Nephews call my MIL Grannie Annie too!!!
It's lovely to catch up with you again.

Angela Radford said...

Hi Annie, late today as I have been out walking with friends and then started on the cards tonight with those dies. I thought you must have been busy with your friends as you were not around on Friday and we missed you.
Thanks for the visit to mine and happy woyww, Angela x 25

Thanks for your visit. Running behind, 2 days helping my sweet Mom and having a restless night. Such soft looking yarn to keep your fingers busy. So glad you had a wonderful week with your visitors too. Your floors look awesome, it's a big job to move things out of rooms etc but so nice to have projects finished and able to enjoy them. Have a wonderful weekend.

Diana Taylor said...

The new flooring is looking lovely, and I love the little baby cardi - how exciting to be waiting for a new little member of the family to arrive!
Running late again this week, one day I'll get my life sorted out!
Have a good week,

HI Annie, love your new flooring and how nice that the work is almost done! We're still changing the flooring room by room, just three more areas and we'll be done. I bet there's sparks coming from those knitting needles at the moment :) Wishing you a wonderful weekend. Hugs, Elizabeth x #46
