Miss K and I took a train ride last week. We were gutted not to be able to make toast or style our hair........ We decided a microwave and curling tongs might be ok and will plan our next breakfast and fashion looks accordingly.
J and I drove over to see his mum at the weekend, to check up on the status of the flood damage and to see what progress was being made. We found 3 wonderful layers of oh so stylish wall paper behind where the kitchen cupboards used to be. I can decide if I prefer the fake wood effect or the oh so stylish brown floral with boats and cottages..... I truly can't imagine anyone thinking orange was a good colour for the kitchen.........
To say the house is looking a little sad would be an understatement, but after several hours work there are less skirting boards stacked up in the yard and a satisfying pile of firewood ready for next winter!
Back home there is progress on a new flower bed, this side of the garden doesn't get much sun, this year I may throw several packets of wild flower seed at it, and see what happens, whilst I come up with a creative plan (work out what might possibly grow there........)
and finally more blossom. just because.
sometimes we need all the promise and hope of spring we can get.
