Martha's Blog

Martha

Hot dawg! How I miss having home access to the internet: it’s causing me no end of grief! How’s a woman to call herself a good housekeeper if she’s so wrapped up in her own fur lined little bubble, she didn’t even know our very own Domestic Goddess has a blog all of her own?

Normal service will be resumed as soon as I can afford  broadband access again: life is a whirl of bills and birthdays and school activities that quite frankly cost a fortune and leave me scraping around my money box for inspiration and erm… bread.

In the meantime BrocanteHome will come from libraries and laptops across the nation.

Have a gorgeous Thursday Housekeepers. Tis raining here but theres Cosy Potato soup bubbling on the grill and I fully intend to teach myself to knit a pretty little washcloth this afternoon.

Wish me luck. I can’t cast on to save my life!

    I was without a computer at home for ages after George left but at least I had access at work. Although I had to set my screen size to very very small to write new posts on my blog incase anyone caught me. Luckily I managed to save up for a new cheap laptop so blogging can be done at home now. Having said that I’m writing this from work. Very naughty! I love the idea of Brocante Home coming from random libraries and Internet cafes. A little bit of brocante loveliness in dull places. Potato soup sounds very yummy.

    hey… that could even be a new little segment. Brocante Home from the Java Jive..etc… plenty to see all over to give you inspiration even in out of the way places.I never learned to knit. I was kind of saving it for when I got old. Hmmmm guess I could start any day now then…

    OOh been there, done that! (single parent here…). I used to use the free internet access at the library when I was too broke to pay for my broadband. It was a lifeline!! Hope the situation improves soon.

    I hear you about the Treasury crisis. I hope pennies from heaven arrive sooner rather than later!And as for Martha’s blog, I’m afraid it highlights just how giant that woman’s ego is! I like her website and all the stuff on it, but I can’t say I care much for her.

    love Alison x

    But it’s SO BORING!I’d like you to get the broadband access anyway, so that you can update your blog more often 😉 Your blog is much better reading than hers.

    Coming out of lurkdom here to say try this site: http://www.knittinghelp.com. I found it through Anna’s site (www.pleasantviewschoolhouse.blogspot.com) and it has been a great find! It has VIDEO instructions and if you are a visual gal like me, it’s almost like the chick is sitting with you.Love your blog, BTW

    Money for bread isn’t so important!You may know this quotation -it is one of my very favourites and it seems rather relevant to your post.It was written by a 13 century Persian poet and shows that nothing really changes!’If thou of fortune be bereft,
    And in thy store there be but left,
    Two loaves, sell one, and with the dole,
    Buy Hyacinths to feed thy soul’
    ~Muslih-uddin Sadi
    Isn’t that wonderful?I must admit to often justifying an unnecessary but wonderful purchase as ‘hyacinths to feed the soul’!
    Your blog is just as wonderful to read when posted from a library and well done for keeping up with it even when it takes such an effort.
