A Simples life

It would be a good thought that life is as simple.

Sitting in the cottage window reading all day, life probably is.

We have started work in our kitchen.
I never knew there was so much "stuff".
It took a whole day to clear as much out as we could.
At times like this, it's always great to have a cheery little guy around with power tools.

Not much point in showing you the amount of damage the water has done.
There are so many people around the world that know water can travel along way.

Tools all ready.

The most important things near to hand. Kettle and cookies.

Sad to say there was a slight accident this morning as the floor was being lifted.
Amie Soto Blossom's teddy cookie jar.

Poor old ted is now headless, not something that could be repaired..

Have to make do with the Frank and Mew's catty one Ames.
At least until we are all sorted out again.

Oh dear! The cookie jar broke? That is a major catastrophe! Fortunately I keep the dog cookies in several different jars so if one breaks, we don't have to panic.

I bet you can't wait till that is done.
Love your cookie jar. I used to have some cat ones, but decided they took up too much space.


Mary Ann Tate said...

Too bad about the cookie jar...but as long as the treats are OK I'm sure Amie will forgive you:)

p.s. I have mousey cookie jars...not a big surprise there eh?

Allie said...

EGADS - this is truly a major undertaking! Sorry to hear about the puppy cookie jar, poor Ames. I hope this doesn't take too long, dear one, and that life gets back to normal soon....

It's my teddy jar... in it :-)
Why they think they can fob me off with any old tosh, I don't know...
I'm not havin my cookies from a catty cookie jar !
I'm a pedigree you know !
O.K.then... a snoring pedigree :-)

Joanna said...

Uh oh, doggy biskets in a kitty treat jar. Good thing they are all good friends. I'm with Faye in that I find myself smiling at your posts.

Guess someone lost their head at your house! Good luck with the renovations!

P.S. And NO I didnot know you Dad was at Crufts but it stands to reason; your such a handsome fellow!

Caroline B said...

Never mind Amie, that gives you an excuse for your mum to buy you a spanking new cookie jar better than what those darn cats have!
Good luck with the floor - you know if you had a 'simples' life you'd be bored!

MyCretanlife said...

Don't think Aime will be that bothered as long as she still gets her cookies, even if it is out of a kitty cat jar.

WendyCarole said...

Great picture of Tony and his tools. Hope it all gets sorted soon. Poor ted cookie jar. Tia has been asking about cookie jars since reading Ames FB post!

Sierra Rose said...

Oh oh! Lots going on there! Is the cookie jar now head-less? Can it be re-headed by one of your fantastic visions!?
Hope all is well! Great to hear from you!

Sweet hugs,
Sierra Rose

Tweedles -- that's me said...

I bet that right now all of Ames cookies are heaping out of the top of the kitties cookie jar,, am I right?
oh that poor floor!! and poor you!
oh we feel for you!

Houseelf said...

I have a theory that builder people are related to humming birds- they seem to survive on sugar fluid cunningly disguised as tea. LOL

Good luck with the floor. I hope there aren't any more mis-haps.

Remington said...

That looks like a lot of work....I think sitting in the window reading would be better -- of course with treats. Sorry to hear about the cookie jar....
