Next job. Feed the dog's!
Upstairs to get myself ready for the day and make the bed.... my two bedside reads at the moment are a Ghost story and my most favorite of all the house mag's...even more so as they have sent me a gorgeous Emma Bridgewater spotty cup & saucer for my afternoon tea...
Back out into the garden to wash-up the dog's bowls and water the plants. This is an old Belfast sink that my son-in-law gave us. N. had the iron stand made to measure by a local Cotswold blacksmith. I am going to paint the iron stand but I have not yet decided on the shade of F&B I want. A big sink in the garden is a brilliant idea if you have room.
Back into the kitchen for a quick tidy here and then one of favorite 'hobbies' to paint my latest finds.
I have managed to get N. to help this time....I think he is fed up with all my projects blocking is garage space!
My F&B collection of oil eggshell paint and one of the little bird box's that I have asked N. to make for me. This one has a lead roof...removed for the painting and the other one has a grey slate roof. I wanted three all to be different, so far I have two ready for painting.
In between painting I do bit of dusting and hoovering, well it has to be done.....no order to my housework...as and when. I have to say Cath Kidston's pack of two pretty dusters do make it a bit more 'fun' ? is that the right word? or am I just sad!
A dash to the high street to have a big moan in the Bank!
After lunch or brunch, more painting. Then on goes the kettle again as Katie and Jude sleep on the sofa!
Nothing like a nice cup of tea in the afternoon! Gosh there is a lot tea drinking in this house. And two of my litttle 'boys' enjoying the afternoon with me in the garden.Next I dash to the allotment to water and a spot of weeding.
Home again, whacked out....cook the dinner and finally I collapse on the sofa until Hub says,
time for bed Carol...wake up!
Where do the hours go? I never achieve all that I hope to at the start of the day.
