It has been so long since I sat here and blogged.
I have not been able to visit many either and I have missed you.
I really wanted to get an April post in before April disappeared. I have promised myself to post once a month as time is in short supply of late.
So now some more make-overs.
My little room got a lick of paint and a new shelf!
Not another shelf he said, as I begged him to put it up for me.
During a little orating break, I had to put in an order into Amazon for two books I have wanted for ages.
The simply divine Cabbages & Roses book and Sophie Dahl's Voluptuous Delights, which it is.
Once my little room was done, the hall looked a little sad...
So more paint and the oak floor was sanded, limed and then sealed.
Well, we couldn't just stop there could we...so on we went into the Family Room which is so much happier now.
But blow me down.....sanding this floor was a mission!
After 16 hours of sanding, wiping, hoovering, rubbing and more sanding, it then had to be limed before we retired or rather collapsed into our bed, covered in wood dust but just too knackered to care!
Here comes Harry our
no. two dog.
Oh and my Gnome has arrived from Lisa over at Periwinkle.
I think he may need a wife soon!
And maybe little Gnome Babies! do Gnomes have babies and wives?
Half the room is back now, just have to finish sealing the rest of the limed floor.
And then we can move swiftly into the kitchen!
I have never seen my kitchen so tidy.
My clutter all had to go before we started the sanding.
