Rain, rain, go away; come again another day

Yes, it's still raining....I think the monsoon season has started.
*Happy dance* the BF got a new job yesterday. He starts on Monday, so our money worries should start to alleviate a little now. He has to go up to Sunderland for a weeks training - I'll miss him loads, but I will get the bed to myself for a week *mwahahahaha!!!* Being an insomniac and a very light sleeper, sometimes sharing a bed can be a little detrimental to my sleep. Of course, I already have a mini schedule planned
*Bridget Jones voice* I will do some yoga every day, and will therefore lose half a stone in a week. I will eat sensibly and not have to be tempted by any manner of naughty goodies that the BF seems to wave under my nose each evening (v. bad). I will get lots of sleep and will wake up each morning deeply refreshed. I will not have to endure football or pc games played at full volume on the telly or pc and will have natural inner poise. The house will stay tidy all week as there will be nobody to mess it up! I will be domestic goddess.
Yes, I know; I live in a complete fantasy world sometimes.

Anyway, what have I been up to for the last couple of days? I rediscovered my beaded goddess that I started last year. Poor thing has been sat on one of my stash shelves guarding my mini drill and waiting patiently.
So, this is what my little floral goddess looked like at the beginning of the week when I picked her up.

And this is what she looks like today. I don't really have a plan for her. Just random swirls of colour and shapes.

This is what her back looks like so far. I like this little cluster on the top right hand side the best so far.

Yum yum. Bead porn.

It's the MIL's birthday next week, so today we made some fudge for her. Luckily she has a very sweet tooth, and the BF likes to make something for her himself. He thinks that he's very uncrafty, so it's good that he has now got the confidence to 'make' a present for his Mum.

I don't think the third box made it as far as the fudge jar *lol*

Thanks Laural! If you read any UK blogs at the moment, we're all bitching about the weather *lol*
BTW, it's been quite sunny today....
