WOYWW 117 - Oh DUDE - THERE's my craftroom!

Well we're in.  Just about.  Shoe-horned into a bigger house with no garage and almost no loft.  You can imagine it, can't you?

If you can't, here's a couple of pics to help!

My new craft room:


Rose Cottage:

The kitchen-diner:


The bee-you-tiful garden...


The master bedroom - more boxes!


Star of the Week award goes to familly LLJ, who were just amazing with their help and moral support on the box lugging front.  We have a lot of boxes.  As you can see.

The mad rambling above, for those not in the know, is part of an international blog hop known as WOYWW - for all the deets head here

Now, I'm not actually going to be blog-hopping much this week.  Maybe not even next.  I might not appear next week either.

This is on account of the fact that Dipstick of the Year award goes to BT, who having been told by the previous residents of this gorgeous abode that they were moving out as of the 26th Aug, decided not to disconnect their phoneline until today (which is why I'm a day early posting, in case I lose all telephone and internet access) and are choosing not to reconnect us until the 8th September!!!!   WTF is that all about?????  Surely some geek just has to unplug one wire and connect it somewhere else?  Or tap in a passcode?  In the meantime, BT lose 8 days of money from us, cos our old line is no longer in use.  STOOPID!

So, until we meet again, sayonara.  Or perhaps Au Revoir is more accurate.


Edited to add - here I am at 11pm and we still have internet.  Go figure.....

A Bientot, for sure!! Hey, no facility for uploading photos gives you a vague chance of finding the room and organising the space. !!!!!
Team LLJ are fab, huh. Although she was a touch indiscreet about the HOUSE FULL of stash you have when compared to mine. Really.

There would be dead bodies if I had to go 8 days without the internet and no natural disaster to blame! The house looks lovely, and the garden is to die for! So Lovely! Good luck and happy WOYWW! -Amanda

If I had a house like this, I'd definitely wait for the craft room - how gorgeous is that. Chocolate box! Enjoy WOYWW!

Gorgeous cottage and garden. I swooned at the kitchn diner ... jealousy crept in there! But not envious of all that unpacking.
Happy WOYWW

Beautiful house and I love your kitchen. Just wish I had one big enough for a table - you wouldn't get me out of it.
Lets hope BT get their act together quickly for you

The cottage looks fab! You'll find the space when you get settled in. Although there's never enough space to create. :)

I know you won't be able to read this for awhile, but I wanted you to know that I love the looks of that gorgeous cottage. I would say it's MORE than a cottage, but it stunningly beautiful. Love the garden, the kitchen and even your tiny craft room. Happy WOYWW even though you probably won't see this.
