So if you have ever fancied having a go at making your own jewellery, take a look at some of the beads I have for sale in my Etsy shop. A few of them are for sale already and I will be adding more over the next few days.
It is a great hobby, but beware buying beads is very addictive.
So this got me thinking about all of my things that I have gathered over the years. Stuff that is pushed to the back of cupboards that I never take out and look at from one year to the next. I am quite sure the loft is full of long forgotten 'stuff' that has been pushed up there in the hopes that one day it may be of some use.
I know I have got things that I really will not want to get rid of but will there be room to take them with us. I have got birthday and Christmas cards from my late mum and dad, I can't throw them away. I have got a shirt of my dad's, I couldn't bear to throw it out because of the memories it holds. Things that my children have made for me, pictures they have drawn, even a tape recording of my eldest singing a nursery rhyme when he was about 3 or 4 years old (he is 27 now). Believe me this list is never ending. I am so sentimental about 'stuff' I just don't know where I will start, I just hope my husband realises how big a container we will need to ship my 'stuff' over there.

In the early hours of 27 February 2008 I was woken up by a loud rumbling that was getting closer and closer, then everything started shaking. I sat up in bed and I could feel myself being shook and things were rattling. Then everything went quiet.
I immediately rang my husband, who was at work, and asked him if he had felt it as he works on the opposite side of town and yes he had. Then my daughter rang me and asked me if I had felt it.
I tried to get back to sleep but my mind was racing and I kept imagining I could hear it again. Needless to say I didn't get much sleep that night.
It was a very frightening experience, one I wouldn't wish to repeat, and it was only a small shudder compared to the earthquakes suffered by other countries.
I wanted to add a picture to this post and I remembered this one that I took on 17 February 2008. I was getting dinner ready and just happened to look out of the kitchen window and saw this amazing coloured sky. I went to the front of the house and took this picture.
