Oh I ache!

Just a quick post to say I'm here but I may be a bit quiet for a few days. The house is in a bit of a state of chaos, and I can't share photos as the computer has been moved and we don't have a long enough lead for the plugs right now!

I haven't been this sore and tired for ages - all the books ended up in the wrong rooms and mostly on the wrong floor. Lots of going up and down our narrow steep stairs with armfuls of books - great exercise! My stash is all over the place and those of you who thought it would be first to be unpacked were very wrong - it ended up being in some of the last boxes hidden under everything else!

I have managed some stitching though. I stitched M Designs' Peace Tree for the Christmas ornament SAL weekend, I did another swan on Evening in the Park yesterday, I found my missing threads and finished Spring Snapperland (except for the buttons), and I've nearly finished my part on Anne's Quaker Friendship RR. Piccies to come when the camera gets plugged in!

Oh, and great news - I got the job in Cambridge! I start next week for 2 days a week. Perfect!
