It's painful but...

So Reader is closing down and I need a new RSS aggregator. What a pain. It seems like Blog Lovin' is the crafty blogger's choice at the moment, so despite the incredibly painful name I've decided to "claim my blog" and if you are making the switch over in that direction you can Follow my blog with Bloglovin by clicking the link. I actually just imported everything lock stock and barrel straight from Google, so much for good intentions of whittling it down a bit!

Packing and general insanity proceeds apace here. I've got a swap to send off to the Netherlands on Tuesday which is largely done but I have two bee blocks to do for my quilt group that are due in a few days too so I'm going to try and continue the juggling act of sewing and packing and painting Hazel's new room. I am woman, watch me multitask!

Here is Ollie this morning, about to fall asleep on my lap. Dogs just don't do laps as well as cats, it's awkward all-round, but he does love being as close to us as he can get!

This and that

Hey there poor neglected blog! It's been a chaotic couple of months at chez nous, my father-in-law died, which threw us all for a loop even though it wasn't unexpected, then we put in an offer on a house, which was accepted the day we got back from the funeral, so it was all hands on deck to get our current house ready to go on the market at the same time as we were dealing with all the details involved with finalising the sale of the new house. Whew! The hardest part was living in our immaculate house and keeping it that way so people could view at short notice. It was sold 5 days after we put it on the market, the real estate market here in Auckland is insanely over-heated at the moment but I guess I shouldn't complain too much should I! We'll be moving on the 6th. My desk and computer were packed away in the decluttering frenzy and I've been without it for about three weeks now, aside from not backing up my phone properly, it's amazing how easy it is to cope with just an iPhone!

Anyways, what with all that the crafting has gone on the back burner to a large extent, but I have managed a few bits and pieces. The hat is a skater beanie from Ravelry and the crochet is one of a few I'm gradually doing for a project.
