Goodness how time flies.
Planted up the winter pansies – they’re lovely. Also lifted two lavender shrubs and moved them to a bed with more room.
New project – to repaint the kitchen. And here’s why.
Note hubby’s expression. Not sure he actually likes it. When he opened the box, he said “Red? . . . . . Red? . . .?” ha ha ha. He didn’t laugh. I did.
That’s not the only reason, though. I’ve been thinking about it for a while. I’m fed up with the peach coloured walls, and love red. So I’m off to B & Q tomorrow for some tester pots. I’m not going to paint the walls red, though, no no no. A step too far. Probably a mid-grey. It all needs washing down first though with sugar soap, and in fact there isn’t very much wall to paint really. Updates as it progresses . . . which will be slowly so I don’t crash.
Lovely weather today, and set fair for most of next week too. Excellent. Washing can probably go out tomorrow.
Made a blackberry and apple crumble the other day and it’s in the freezer waiting for the end of the month, when ES arrives to stay for a couple of days with his entourage (girlfriend and his three children). Can’t wait. Cakes to make too and possibly a trifle.
Lost another battle with a spiky tree today and bled profusely. Looks ugly and bruised and horrible. Long sleeves tomorrow I think.
Had our flu jabs on Saturday so we’re all ready for the winter now. Bring it on!
That’s about it for today.
