Home is not home until you put your own personal stamp on it. That is my opinion.
I have ( at 72 yrs of age) began to decorate. The last time I painted was back in about 2005 at my flat. When I had the flat renovated in 2008 they did all the painting in my chosen colours.
Now I’m in my own little house and the cololurs the past owners had painted are really not to my taste.
The kitchen is the first place. Recently some one took off the polystyrene tiles from the ceiling and I have found a very reliable person who put up the new ceiling. Not sure of the right name but its like plastic and slotted in to place. Clean, noisless to put up and has the advantage of being easy to wipe over. I have been to our local Wilko store and bought Sunshine Yellow and have just painted the walls (2 coats) – except one that’s wood and that has had a coat of Almond White one gloss paint. Am waiting for it to dry but this looks a good colour that I will continue to do on skirting boards, stair rails and banister.
Today it has been raining heaily so a good day to stay in and paint.
Benji went for his check up a few days ago and his flea investation has cleared up. As the fur is growing nicely where they shaved it and his other fur is getting long, I have booked him into our lady groomer. Not going back to the other one as I believe that is where he picked up the fleas.
Garden is getting ready for Winter. I have tried to create an old fahioned border and here is the photos to show you. Just some Bluebells to plant in pot. I sent for a Raspberry plant which is grown in a pot so that has arrived and planted in its pot.
