We're All Going on a Summer Holiday ....

You're singing, aren't you?

We're off to the land of cream teas, surfers and King Arthur (Cornwall) tomorrow, so I won't be posting for a few days. Seem to have spent most of the last few days cleaning and tidying - so much for time off! One of the disadvantages of working full-time is that there's never enough time to keep the house properly clean and tidy. Never mind, one day I'll be a housewife and DH will keep me in the manner to which I'm accustomed. Yeah, right!

Good news though, the hallway is nearly finished: just need to put our pictures up and books back on their shelves. DH had to buy a new drill in the end as we just couldn't find the right battery pack for his other drill.

See you when we get back!

P.S It is also my birthday on tuesday!

Oh dear...........

The refurbishment of the hall has hit a bit of a snag - hubby's cordless drill battery pack has gone to tool heaven and we couldn't find a replacement. The shelves are on hold until we can get a new one, which will probably be when we get back from Cornwall.

On a lighter note, I found a nice duvet cover and 4 pillow cases in the charity shop on Thursday for £4.99. Was definitely a Cath Kidston one, I think it was one of the ones she designed for Ikea a while back.

Rosali Duvet Set

£39?! Maybe I should sell it instead. Should have bought the other one as well, which was a king size and sold that!

Just this article, I'm sure my fellow Shabby Chicers can relate:

Didja Miss Me?

Didja, didja?!

I know you've all been on the edge of your seats waiting for the next instalment.

After various calamities, the house is more or less in one piece and we are half way to a new hall - it's been plastered and painted, now need to sort out the skirting boards and put some wallpaper up as 'feature wall'. Pressure is on to get it all finished this weekend as my Mum is coming to house site while we're in Cornwall for Bank Holiday week.
