School holidays ended yesterday and I spent the day in the hairdressers getting some much needed TLC.
Over the week we had the electricity board checking the cables… very off putting to have a helicopter so close to your roof and Sky dish!
At the weekend I started painting the bathroom – as the plan is to completely redo this in 2011 its a minimal spend.
(It was planned for this year but we built the studio instead).
As you can see its a small room with one huge window.
The preparation is my least favourite job – the Cath Kidston gloves and flowery scrubbing brush made it seem less of a chore :)
Sad. But true.
Major work was required filling in the gaps between floorboards;
The new colours are;
Wall colour – Mouse’s Back
Woodwork and floor – Light Gray
All from my favourite paint shop Farrow & Ball, I’ve loved these paints for years, even before they were trendy.
I love Autumn for its colours, but really do hate the lack of light at this time of year.
Photography becomes difficult and I always feel a bit sad as I love the sunlight.
Though it is an excuse to wear my new purple velvet jacket.
Looks great with the new boots.
