Thank you so much for your kind response about the bedroom wallpaper. Things are still rather hectic here in our big spruce up before our friends come to stay in 10 days. But life is good and here are just a few things that are making me smile this dreary Monday.
:: My latest crochet blanket::
I'm really enjoying making this and even though I'm just copying it from Yvonne's photograph I think I have worked out the pattern correctly. Though my bag of yarn is taking over our sitting room!
:: Organising the garden ::
We have worked really hard over the last few weeks changing things in the house and garden. Some are only small things but still give a lot of satisfaction when after a long day you can stand back and admire your hard work. Bath panel will be fitted on Wednesday morning at 9am so it wont be long now for the bathroom ta-da. (I think it must hold the record for the longest 'unfinished' bathroom story!)
:: Painting the floor ..again..during a school holiday ::
Mmm..not so sure I'm feeling too cheerful about this as most people actually go on away or relax during their holidays, but my goodness it looks so white and clean when you've done. It has to the most trickiest thing to paint (90%) of the whole house's floors. My heart is constantly in mouth as the children all insist on wandering around shouting " Mum, can I stand on this part?!" whilst standing on it, or letting the cats out of the room. Oh happy days. But if anyone is thinking of painting their floors, do it! It looks wonderful and we don't regret it at all.
:: Discovering a new oil ::
One of my daily pleasures is burning scented oils in my metal light bulb rings and for a long time my favourite has been The Body Shop's Green Tea oil. But good old M & S has a new one, Nectarine and Orange which is lovely and it's cheaper too!
:: The unexpected delivery this morning of September's Country Living ::
:: And finally....::
Because I have painted the kitchen floor, we have to eat out tonight. Woo hoo! Think I might paint the kitchen floor more often....
