Painting and decorating...

Every year around spring/summer time I always start noticing bits of the house that need a lick of paint. If I am honest the only thing I had set out to paint were the 5 new doors in my house so I primed and painted them with an eggshell paint on Saturday. It didn't take as long as I had anticipated but painting those doors highlighted other areas that need to be painted i.e door frames and skirting boards. I am not going to do paint them now as it requires a bit of attention which I am not ready to give. While I was on a roll I decided to repaint the kitchen and one wall in Master T's bedroom.
Master T will be 11 at the end of this year and I think it's time I gave him a gown uppish room in terms of deco. I have just about everything I need to make his room a lot nicer than it is now but some work is required. I have been looking for a curtain that matches the deco but haven't found anything in the right colour or size. I had all but given up when I walked into Primark and saw a duvet cover in exactly the colour and design I required. I didn't even hesitate paying the £9. Now all I need to do is dust my sewing machine and start making a curtain.
This past week has been a good one. I have been listening to my body and sleeping a bit more. 3 years of not going to bed when I want too because there is an assignment to write are over. Sleep is good and refreshing. I have also noticed in the past week that I have been eating a bit more. Hope the pounds don't start piling.
Hope you all enjoyed the weekend.


  1. Sounds good! I look forward to photos! Hope you are well and enjoy that sleep!!x

  2. I still have to paint all the ' room' side of my new doors - they look great from the hallway side though!

  3. Hope the assignments went well.

    Good news on the painting front.
