If you read Christian's blog you'll see that he's been busy cutting down trees this weekend. I have to say that I've gone one better than that on the scale of "Things that middle aged people do in their spare time". I have bought and put up coving, bought polyfilla and filled cracks, and started with the painting. Magnolia for the ceiling, white for the coving, and a rather dashing deep purple for the kitchen window wall. I haven't chosen the paint for the other walls yet - but it will be a sort of stone colour. Then I'll be making curtains with my new sewing machine that I bought from John Lewis last week.
Whatsmore, for the first time in my life ever I have actually washed the paint brushes and rollers out and dried them, instead of just chucking them straight into the bin when I finished.
I think I'm turning into my Dad!
