First things first. Thank you. No really, thanks ever so. For all your kind and supportive comments this week. It has meant a lot. And you are right. Of course you are, you clever people. The right place will come along at the right time. When it does it will be fabulous. Until then I intend to enjoy what we already have here, which is pretty good I must say. And hello to those of you who pressed the button, and joined. Is it wrong to get such a kick out of it? Does it massage my ego just a little bit? It can't fail to can it? It makes me feel good, so thanks. Again.
Happy things from the week. Joining in with Jen at Little Birdie.
The conservatory/playroom finally got it's third and final coat of paint at the weekend. The blinds went back up, and I had a happy hour or so of putting stuff back and re-arranging the place. Pottering heaven. I'll be honest, I was unsure about the hit of colour I'd decided upon. The whole house is white. I have stayed away from colour for several years. But I love it now. It's such a sunshiny happy room. This room works hard. We use it all the time. And I've finally been able to put my new oilcloth on the table. I bought it this time last year. Hooray!!
A Good Book
This month's book group read. It's good. I mean seriously good. The sort of good you want to savour. The sort of good that is so good, you feel a little in awe/envious of the talent behind it, and the mind that it sprang from. How happy am I that minds like these exist.
Fresh bed linen
Freshly laundered. Freshly ironed. On the bed. Can't wait to get in this evening.
I don't know about you, but I always seem to be reading articles where the person furnished their house from skip finds. I don't know where these skips are. I've never found one. Until last week. Olly and me were returning from a walk with Honey. Three houses up from me there was a skip in the drive. This chair was perched on the top. I know!! It's mine now. And yes I did knock and ask "may I, please?" Now do I paint it, or live it as it is? What do you think?
There you go. Happy things. Happy, happy, happy.
