I'm Back

Well after a very busy week I am back and so ready to get those pencils back in my hands.
It's taken a few days to get broadband connected to the new home.
We are all unpacked and most things have a home. I love our new home and have it shipshape inside.  Just the garden to get sorted now which will take time.  The driveway is done so we can get the car into the garage now.  All boxed empty   YAY!!!
I spent the morning today at the hospital after having pain in my left arm and pins and needles in the fingers.  Grrrrrrrrrrr    painful.  I felt ok other than than the pain and discomfort but having called the Dr's to get it checked...They told me to get to the hospital ASAP as it could be a heart attack being in the left arm.  So much for the emergency, I spent most of the morning sitting in the waiting room of the emergency dept.   They were very good once I got to see a Dr..  checked me out.  ECG, Blood pressure check twice and exray of the neck.  turns out it was overuse of the arm. ie carpel tunnel or pinched nerve or just plain overuse.  It was a big job packing at the unit,  cleaning inside and out and cleaning the new home ( builders dust) etc.  then unpacking.   So glad it is all over.

Now i can look forward to getting the pencils back in my hands and being creative again.
I have missed you all so much.  Hope you have been creating.  I think I have a lot to catch up on with all your work.  I look forward to seeing what you have all been doing the last week.

Big Hugs to you all.

Busy Busy Busy

All is going well.  Carpets laid today.  We have all the kitchen goods put into the cupboards,drawers etc.
The linen all put in the linen cupboard most of the boxes unpacked.
Tomorrow I will clean right through the unit here that we have been renting.  Thank goodness I have done all the windows.

We hired a Light Ace Van today and took all the small things around to the house, and the plants,trees etc.

Only 2 more sleeps and we will be there.  Wednesday 7am  the heavy furniture will be taken by the removal company.
and guess what it has rained all day today.... The new house land is like a mud bath.  YUCK. !!!! It will still be wet and muddy when they deliver the furniture.
The driveway concreting has been held up due to wet weather so the driveway to the garage cannot be used.  Can you imagine mud with the furniture being brought into the house.... brand new carpet and tiles.
Grrrrrrrrrrr     I am thinking OK   they will have to put all the furniture in the family room( tiled area) Then Nev and I will have to place the furniture into the rooms later that have carpet.    The removal men won't take off their muddy shoes to walk on the carpet...  safety I suppose comes first.

We will get there....or I should say our old saying... We will bumble through.  LOL
Still smiling and right now a glass of Chardy in hand.   :).

Hope you are all happily drawing/painting there,   Computer is going off tomorrow....  should only be a couple of days and I will be back.....
Hugs to all.

Revisited the Lizard


I thought it was time I looked at completing the background of the Lizard.   It always seemed to have that unfinished look.
We are moving into our new home in 2 weeks time YEAH!!!!  We are well on the way with the packing so it should be a breeze on the day we move.  The main area floor tiles will be laid next week, the blinds and Venetians will be installed next week and the carpet laid.  WoooHooo   We are almost there now.
We are so happy with the builders (Masterton Homes)  Great job.  No Stress...  It's all been a wonderful experience.  
Anyway back to our Lizard..   I think I can now call this finished.  I hope to still have time to do another drawing before we move.
