update on life and project

Hi All

Time is flying by, this is now my 4th week on my rehab programme, oops better say its for my breathing, as someone may think rehab means something else, when I first started this, I did think "why do I need to learn how to breath properly" but it is making a difference and doing 2 hours a week of exercise is making me feel better, only another 4 weeks to go.
Do you find time is speeding by?

I have managed to find time to work on my bikers garage, I have now painted the inside of the helmet, I wanted it to be dirty, so I have given it a base colour, I mixed white and brown and just slapped it on, I just need now to make it grubby.

I made some bottles, using small batteries that you find inside computer towers, ( best thing I ever broke up, was my computer tower, I have used the parts in just about everything I make) added lids, which are beads and labels I found on the web and shrunk them to size,

The waste oil container, is just a bit of balsa wood,shaped, painted and added label and tap,

painted and added tyres to my tyre stand, this I made form bits of wood, got old toys from junk shops and took the tyres off. 

Found a brilliant name for the garage, "Busted Knuckle"

so thats my update, have a look at photos, now I am  off to catch up on your blogs

talk about the rain!!! and some printies

HI all
Yes I will mention the rain, could not believe the rain we had Friday, our road was flooded, luckily it did not come up to my bungalow,and then 2 hours later, the sun was shining and the roads was clear and dry, makes me wonder if there is some unknown force about having fun in creating havoc.

I have not had time for minis, so much going on, I am now attending Pulmonary Rehab, this is 2 afternoons a week for 8 weeks, I am finding it useful and learning how to control my breathing, plus I am getting 2 hours exercise a week,  this is helping me with my diet, yes I am also on a diet, but even this is not easy, due to me being on warfarin, I have to have a dietician who is helping me, basically I am changing the way I eat and she hope this will help me lose weight, I have a stone to lose, but she thinks at least half of this is the fluid I carry.
So as you can see my weeks are busy.

I have been sewing lots, making baby stuff, after the responses I got from family and friends about the baby bits I had made, I decided to make some and see if they sell, so today they will be going on Ebay to see what happens, I am also going to put them on facebook, wish me luck.

I still hope to make and sell my miniatures, but I have seen a slowdown in sales, I think its a lot to do with miniatures being a hobby and in times of hardship, hobbies take a back seat, 

well thats enough of me going on, I am enjoying catching up with all your blogs,
there are so many interesting things to read about  and see.

Here are some printies, please use them only for personal use, as they are not mine. thanks , enjoy
