The simple things
Judging by the naff displays in all the card shop windows this morning, Mother's Day must be soon. I'd much rather receive what I was given today wouldn't you?
It is at least an improvement on the muddy clump of moss I was presented with yesterday and the worm the previous day. As you can tell by the state of our windowsill, the new house is something of a renovation project. It's the third one we've done in a row and in many ways, much more straightforward than some, but made massively daunting by the thought that this is 'the one', the house we might stay in for a while at least. Now the decisions are more important to be right and there's little time for research, browsing showrooms and reading brochures. I've made snap decisions on bathroom fittings and just hope that they'll be gorgeous once fitted rather than an expensive mistake! While progress on my work is slow I can at least report that renovations are moving along. The upstairs is re-wired and we have nice new ceiling lighting and provision for some wall lights that I plan to make. (Grand ideas but nothing done about it yet!). And the loft is now knee-deep in lovely cosy sheep wool insulation. That should put pay to any cold weather for the foreseeable, that and the snow boots I've bought for Amelie.
Thanks for dropping by, more work next time I promise!
