Well, today marks the first day of a new week... and the first week in a while that I don't have work commitments.

It feels wonderful.

But I'm replacing 'work' with ... WORK here at home.  Crickey, there's still so much to do.

I really don't know where to start next.  Kids rooms, garage, walls?

Perhaps I will go from room to room and put polyfilla in all the little holes and imperfections, then sand them in a few days.

That way I can do the painting and touch ups in one foul swoop.  

God I hate painting!    It's a right fag.

But it needs to be done, so I will do it.  

While the polyfilla is drying, there will be plenty of other things to get on with.

ABOVE:  In case you didn't see it yesterday, we got the lounge sorted out, and we re-hung the original curtains.   I'm actually happy with how they look!
They are still horrendous, but they work in the room.

I am gutted that we will most likely have to leave the barn door behind when we move.  GUTTED, cos it is the one and only that our son Steve has made, and I just  love  it.

ABOVE:  A few photos from yesterday when Steve, Bex and the little kids visited.
Just a fleeting visit ... got a couple of things sorted out then they were off home again.

I will be going up in about three weeks for a couple of days.  Now that I'm not working outside the home, I can pop up there again.

Now though, it's porridge in bed time.  Then off to slap on polyfilla everywhere.


11 am:  and for the briefest of moments, our lounge looked beautiful.  And now?

 ABOVE:  Yep, I've dragged 90% of the sewing room stuff into it, so I can prep the walls for painting.  It's another room that will need most of it's walls painted.
Oh friggin ya.

ABOVE:  I'm going to take down these shelves next, then start filling in all the little holes on all the walls.  Yeah, better take the cottons off the wall too.

I have decided to totally downsize what I keep in this room in relation to SEWING, and put a single bed in here. That way it will present as a 'bedroom', cos sure as eggs some twats will see all the sewing stuff and go "Oh, not a bedroom then".   Yeah, there's idiots out there for sure.

So, there's some  stuff going on in the background that's bothering me. Can't/won't discuss it on here, except to say TEENAGER.

I've been in tears one minute, and cross the next.  A couple of phone calls today .. one good (thanks OLD MOO) and one that just set me off again.  

So, I  have done NOTHING since lunch time but mope.  Wish my emotions didn't get the better of me so often.

It's nearly time for me to sort out dinner.  We are having Teriyaki Chicken on rice.  Should be lovely.

Dinner was lovely as I expected.  Then we had a visit from TEENAGER, and that went fairly well.
No other news to impart, so will sign off for the day.


  1. Yup some cany visualize if its not righht under there noses

  2. We were told that if you want to remove something, do so before the listing photos are taken. So the photos don't show the doors. Then just fill all the holes and you can take the doors with you.
    We did it with some light fixtures and door knobs (!!!) that we loved, we just replaced them before the real estate listing photos were taken.

  3. Sorry to hear that you are feeling mopey. It sure can be tough!
