Got a week off work - yay!
After all the upheaval of building work,
we finally got to the nice bit - nesting!
One of the plus sides of living with an (under control) hoarder
- is the stash available to create decorative schemes.
I can wave my arms about and say
Aunty Dilys' chairs
(beautiful oak from Port Sunlight)
the massive green school cupboard that nearly killed the removal men
the broken sunburst clock
it's always 6:05 in our house
(note to self - dusting!)
The Iwan Bala - 'Views for News'
there's even a colour scheme emerging
- but what we really need…
..is a defunct fire alarm!
We've been having guests round for dinner,
and using pretty things that have been boxed up for so long.
Putting bread in my favourite rush basket
- and setting the table with vintage napkins.
Tomorrow we are off to Birmingham to see Youngest Stepson before he graduates.
I'm making beef and beer stew to portion up and freeze for him
- brain food for a hungry student.
There's still plenty of work to do on the house.
But it's important to enjoy what we've managed to achieve along the way.
Must go - wallpaper to strip upstairs….
