All my muscles ache!

Yesterday was one heck of a day!

Me and Deak helped my sister in law move house! Well! I was amazed at how much stuff she had in her flat, which was up 4 flights of stairs so lugging all that stuff down the stairs and into the van was tough. 
I was the white-van-lady, first time ever driving a van, and I quite enjoyed it!! 

We started at 10am and got home at 10.45pm................long day.

It was only us 2 women until 5pm (apart from Deak who was the door-opener!) and then her mum and boyfriend came to help after work, it was nice to have a little breather!!!

But we got it completed and now she is in a lovely new house with a fab garden and I'm looking forward to the day she says she is all unpacked and we can go round for Fajitas!!! Yum!

All I can say today is that I am so sore I can barely move! All my muscles ache, I'm off to have a long hot bath to try and soothe the pain!!!
Ooooh and when I popped home for lunch yesterday I had a fabulous parcel waiting for me from the lovely Ali over at Magic Making Hands

Summer swap parcel

Gorgeous stuff.....................I was ooohing and aaaahing opening each one!!
a lovely handmade heart, 
handmade pin holder book, 
handmade flower brooch,
tape measure, 
box of buttons/thread/ribbon, 
pegs with cute handmade decorations on the top, 
a handmade covered notebook and pencil
and some yummy chocolate!!!!!!

I love it all, Ali, Thank you so much and I will be posting yours shortly (sorry for the delay x)



  1. Well done for your help moving, it's hard enough when you're doing it for yourself let alone for someone else! Sounds like you'll deserve those fajitas :) great swap x

  2. Eeeeeeeeek babs. Can totally image your pain (done a few moves in n out of flats over the years!!!) Hope the soak in the bath help. OooOOoo great swapsies twinks. Enjoy the choccy's. Loves Ionwen X

  3. Oh I feel your pain!! We moved in November from a 3rd floor apartment to a 1st floor maisonette a couple of hours away and even with help from our parents it was a tiring day. I had no idea that we had so much STUFF until we were lugging it up and down stairs, we've promised ourselves movers next time!

    On the upside - treat yourself to some of those yummy chocs and feel no guilt as you'll certainly have burnt those off and more!

  4. Hope after a hot bath and another nights sleep you are slightly less achey today - moving is a nightmare! (and unfortunately I think we are moving again in about a month!!) Just think of all the brownie points you will have gained though :) Have a lovely relaxing weekend! xx

  5. Great swap gifts :) i love helping other people move house cos at least you don't have to unpack everything at the end! Hope you don't feel as tired today :)

    Bee happy x
    Have a delicious day!

  6. Lovely swap gifts!
