Hi All, Sorry for being AWOL last week, Disaster in the crafty space.....

Hi Everyone, so sorry for no visits to all your fabulous blogs last week, But I had a wee disaster in the craft room..It all began when my lovely DH decided I needed some more electric sockets in my room, as I have to go to the kitchen to emboss or use my glue gun... So I thought Fabulous whoo-hoo... Well it all went wrong as the plaster came away from the wall "YIKES" So we had to empty the whole room... and as my DH was busy getting it sorted I had a brain wave ( scary I know) that I would change the whole lot around and get rid of my boxes as I must confess they drove me mad..So I have gone for a load of clear boxes and wrote what is inside soooooo much easier  I hope I can find me crafty bits now...So Last week I had a week's leave from work and boy did we work hard, I didn't know I had collected  so much stuff!!! so the sockets are in 8 of them... shelves up...and room painted.. To top it all it was my birthday that week and my DH bought me a new sewing machine so know I can use it in my room  whoop, whoop, We did have one day out with our lovely Grandson and went to the Warner Brothers Studio to the Harry Potter tour... Fabulous.. So this post is very heavy with Pics so if you are still awake here goes.....
