Welcome....

To two new followers.....Jean and Brenda.

I'm not convinced about the new 'followers' gadget which Blogger has deemed necessary. There was nowt wrong with the old one as far as I can see and I am a firm exponent of the 'if it ain't broke don't fix it' school of thought.

No matter.

Normally I'm not a great fan of Monday mornings either, but this one dawned bright and sunny, with clear blue skies and not a breath of wind. What's that old saying about March coming in like a lamb and going out like a lion? Doesn't augur well does it............

In other news, Small Dog has relinquished her epic sulk in favour of revenge.

Thus far this morning she has been sick on the stairs, then went outside, found a patch of mud, and managed to get it liberally spread all up her back legs. I've just finished dunking her in the kitchen sink to wash the mud off her legs which has not improved her mood. She's now lying full stretch in the porch, luxuriating in a patch of sunlight no doubt working on her next fiendish plan.

So...........the start of a new month!

Exciting in so many ways.........not least because over the weekend I have blitzed the workroom (yes, AGAIN!) and it is wonderfully clean, neat and tidy. Just how long this will remain the case is anybody's guess, but for the moment it is an oasis of peace and calm, waiting to recharge my creative batteries and provide a soothing space in which to create all manner of new miniatures.

Well, that's the plan anyway.

And last, but not least, the March issue of the AIM (Artisans in Miniature) online magazine went live yesterday. Speaking as a member of the editorial team, and regular contributor, it truly is a labour of love.

OK. Enough displacement activity. Must go and package orders then make a start on my week's 'to do' list.

Seems like everyone is having a Spring clean! Best I get my arse in to gear and have a mammoth clear up! LOL.. Or maybe a bit of displacement therapy is in order...

My workroom is now so tidy I'm beginning to feel it's sacriligious to do any work and risk messing it up!
Sometimes you just can't win.....

talking of 'ain't broke don't fix it' - have you seen the new online BBC weather site....grrrrrr.....

Just seen it........at the risk of appearing to be a complete luddite, I have to agree.

I will now try to take my own advice as I've scheduled an hour or so this afternoon for website maintenance.

I WILL resist the temptation to tinker........
