The word today is Collect and Miniature

Collect: To bring or gather objects together.

Although I am packing up there are still some of my treasured collections around the house. Yes some angels tha have avoided being packed cos they have just been bought LOL.

Miniature: A replica of something in a smaller scale.

Oh such an easy one my lovely lttle miniature stove

WOO HOO and Clink Clink everyone!!!
Have finally received confirmation that the house is SOLD!!! I am so excited and relieved I do not know what to do with myself. At last.
Thanks for all your lovely comments of encouragement and well wishes. You have been my lifeline for the past few weeks.
I move out on the 28th November which is less than two weeks away!
So today I can start cancelling things; electricity, water, alarm, pool doctor, telephone etc. I have a big list so will just work through it! It will not take long as it should be just a few phone calls. Can you tell how excited I am? Woo Hoo.
My dear friends at my local scrapping shop have said I can come craft there and use their equipment so that I can really pack the craft room.
The other decision I have to make is where to stay between the 28th November and the 10th December. I have had quite a few offers from very dear friends and family so it's decision time. Another friend has offered secure parking for my car while I am in England visiting my DD caz and darling son in law Stu.

I have just changed my ticket to Johannesburg which was scheduled for the 23rd November so now fly on the 30th November and return to Capetown on the 3rd December. So I will have a birthday with family in Johannesburg albeit a bit late.

WOO HOO girls!
Thanks for visiting and love from Di

Awwww no sleep for the wicked or the foolish. I just realized that hey november 16th is THIS freaking friday. I am doing a trivia night and have yet to the questions or the prizes or get a projector or prizes. I am an idiot. I'll be up for at least anouther hour and a half.

So glad your house sold. You can stay with us for that time but that means coming to the US.

By the way I got inspired by you and chopped my hair off. I have less than you. Scarey.
