Well I have been tagged - twice - but unfortunately I do not have time right now to reciprocate - impending arrival of Mum and still tidying to do!

I much appreciate the sentiment girls - thank you so much - hopefully I will get my 'tag list' ready to publish in the next day or two.

back to jewellery

I seem to be back on track with jewellery now (apart from a couple of outstanding orders).

But the next big project will be to update my website - the photos take a long time to load apparently. (Even though I checked the page loading speed at various websites). Anyhoo, I need to revamp the photos, and perhaps the page design in order for the loading speed to decrease.

Mum arrives tomorrow and I am currently busy tidying the house (priorities!). Hopefully, I will put her to some good use while she is here.

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear

I have always wanted to have a go at researching my Family Tree - I've had a couple of interesting dabbles over the last couple of months, but nothing that took too much time!
However, on Saturday my OH was at the footie (what a waste of a day that was, but will he ever learn?) and when I got back from the Farmers Market there was a couple of Registry extracts waiting for me in the post.
Needless to say any thoughts of working for that afternoon quickly disappeared, and I was soon ensconced on ScotlandsPeople beavering away back to the 1850's. It is so addictive! I didn't stop until about 10pm that night and then was at it again all day yesterday - when I should have been working.
Of course, that meant I started making jewellery at about 7pm (after tea and dog-walking) and finished at about 10pm - just in time to watch House!
Amazing how guilt keeps you going.
Today - I must, must, must do some proper work. Lol.
