Sorry I haven't been on here since beginning of May (other than to read all of your lovely blogs)!! So this is going to be a bitty blog to update you.
So what have I been up to?? Well, lots of working and studying before halfterm and then............................ Last weekend we went to Hertfordshire for the day to visit the inlaws, Monday - Eastbourne for the day, Tuesday - new carpet fitted in the morning and cinema in the afternoon (boys-Pirates of the Caribbean/girls-Wimpy Kid 2), Wednesday - London doing touristy things, Thursday-children went to their friends houses for the day, Friday-out for a meal with my parents for my mum's birthday, Yesterday-Canterbury, Today.........................resting!!!! Phew!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Also last weekend I went to a boot sale, but only made a couple of purchases.........A china mosaic photo frame - now in my dining area (another one to find a picture for!)
I bought this noticeboard for our family room, but think that it looks really good in the kitchen. I also bought a large Laura Ashley cup with spots and flowers - to put a plant in, but forgot to photograph it.
So now for some updated hallway pictures..........
Our new carpet - so nice and soft! And our newly painted white walls (over the wallpaper)
Below - the new understairs cupboard all nice and painted
I had a stand with a desk top that sat on top of it, but it was too deep for the hall. So I found some wood in the garage and got my dad to make a new narrow top for the stand and voila!! Not sure if these are the bits & pieces that are going to stay on there.
Need some lavendar for my trough now, as well as some piccies for the walls and other bits. I got a mirror today though..............
I had seen this yesterday in TKMaxx, didn't get it and then regretted it! Made sure I got there before it opened this morning so that I was first through the door and luckily they still had it!
I will show you some better pictures once it has all been put together properly!
Back to work/school tomorrow - oh well!
