oh where oh where have you been?

Firstly I have just moved house from near Bridgwater up the road to South Horrington near Wells. I live in small flat in part of the disused Mendip Hospital. It used to be a psychiatric hospital and my section is the clean working men's day room!!!!!!!!!!! It is a massive place with the hospital grounds little changed although there are some new houses as part of the development. The facade is intact and many of the old buildings have been retained. There is a cricket pitch for the Wells team and most Saturdays and Sundays there's a matvch to watch.
The main reason for moving was for saving some cash-too much stash-and when I say that I mean it. You should see the size of spare room I have now for sleeping visitors and stash storage......not many visitors I suspect. Also to be nearer work, like 10 minutes rather than 40! It's nice to get home before 8pm after a 11 hour shift at work for a change.
Scrapbooking wise, I have done very little although I am reading a starting to organise my stuff for Shimelle's LSNED 2009 class which began the other day. I am also working on a pressie for by little sis's 40th bday so they are keeping me going.
My little saving of the week is a Dymo machine-just a basci one. Lidl had a special offer and it was £4.99......considering the ones I've seen in WH Smiths and elsewhere range from £9.00-15.00 I thought that was great. I have also saved enough stamps for a £10.00 voucher to spend at Sarah's Cards so I am well into saving mode.
