Too much work and not enough play!!

Gosh - been quiet haven't I... nothing has been done.  I have ebayed a bit.. and did manage to find a wheelie bin at the local grocery shop haha - it's so cute - full of sherbert that I will have to devour before turning it into a piece for my house.

My long hours are over (as are the big dollars *sob*) and I'm back to part time - perhaps NOW I can get some work done on my house - and start creating some wonders.  I have 2 weeks leave coming up at the end of
February too.  Right now though - am concentrating on getting my pool clean, keeping house, and feeding the family.  Neverending..

But.. I'm still around, and still love miniatures.. in case anyone wondered!

Tough week - and a mystery??

Gosh.. I have done NOTHING :( Been a really tough week at work, long hours and not a lot of time for myself.  One of my posties got bitten by a dog.. not once, but twice.. and the dog owner got nasty on my courtesy call to ask him to restrain the dog.. and came in and plonked said harmless dog on the counter - MUZZLE in place - demanding to see me and have a piece of me.. ongoing investigation as he has now dissappeared - and the issue has been handed over to the local council to deal with.  NO regard whatsoever towards my injured staff member! GRRRR - drama after drama this week.. and a huge lack of staff so I'm pretty tired :(  In fact got home tonight and fell asleep as soon as I got in the door!

Tonight it's hot.. and I still have no desire to create!  After work today I went to pick up my mail from the post office and got home with 2 parcels.

One was something I'd ordered.. and the other one.. I have NO idea where it came from.. HMMMMM....
It contained miniatures - and I was bewildered.. had I ordered them?  I went to all the sites I visit and buy from - NO...
This is what was in the package:

 I am suspicious.. ;-) The package wasn't addressed the same as it would be.. if I'd ordered it and paid with paypal.. similar.. but not 'quite' the same - hmmmmm..... the plot thickens!!

Gorgeous surprise, I just love the items.. the little spice jars omg - they're adorable - and empty ones to fill myself - should get the creative juices flowing when I get some life back into me!
