Blimey I am hopeless.. my notion of posting a photo a day has already fallen flat on its face. Oh well..
So here's Monday 3rd Jan:
Yep, it's a yucky photo but it had to be taken because it reveals that we're making a start on decorating the lounge! Well.. Gareth has painted the ceiling, to be precise. We start on the walls next weekend - Mellow Mocha all over with Blue Reflection on the chimney breast wall. I have plans for a few sewing/home decor projects this year.. might need to get my sewing machine fixed though.
It's also a reminder that today was the day we took down the Christmas decorations (as evidenced by the empty space to the right of the chimney breast). Hurrah!!! I was just about sick of them to be honest.
Tuesday 4th Jan:
It was Charlie and Harry's first day back in school/nursery - Charlie full time - and I needed to drag them to the Post Office afterwards. Charlie threatened to have a meltdown on the way, so I had to resort to bribery by chocolate to get him there without tears. I'm not proud of it.. but it was strictly necessary on this occasion.
Wed 5th Jan:
Yummmmmy East Of India ribbon!! Bought from eBay the other day.. the gingham one is for a little project I have in mind.. I'm going to edge our bedside lamps to make them a bit cosier.. a bit more shabby-chic-looking (shabby chic.. my current obsession.. expect far more on this topic in the near future). I'll keep you posted on how this project turns out. :o)
I've no idea what I'll do with the blue spotty one.. I just have a thing for polka dots at the moment.. and I love that blue, too.It'll go nicely with the blue that's heading for our lounge wall anyway.
All for now!
