Here’s an update on the fire place in our lounge.
An amazing transformation I think! 🙂
For a very long tome there had been a pile of large logs on our front drive which Mr O. was intending to deal with but never got round to it. I came up with a solution for the problem……
…….we now have a rockery! I added some rockery stones to the log pile without disturbing little families which will have made there home in the warm and damp. I now am gradually adding some plants, so now as I drive up to my house it puts a smile on my face! 🙂
We’ve been suffering with a dark fireplace ever since we have moved into our house fourteen years ago. We are having a new carpet, so it’s time for a change. I would like the room to be a little bit lighter and therefore feel a bit more spacious.
It’s amazing what a pot of chalk paint does to start the ball rolling!
It’s like a breath of fresh air
The carpet arrives on Wednesday so I’ll keep you posted on how things go 🙂
Oh yes, it’s that time of year when I review my seeds and start planning what I’m going to sow. I just get itchy fingers, only put off by the cold weather!
I had some packets left from last year and bought a couple of magazines which had free seeds with them so I have a good amount of seed to go on with. All I need is some winter sunshine to get me out to prepare for sowing! 🙂
I am extra pleased with how we are managing to keep our non-recycle-able waste to a minimum. This is our rubbish bin waiting for our fortnightly collection 🙂 We are also trying to have what is called a dry bin in the kitchen which means not using a bin bag. It takes thinking about and a little extra effort, but if you put your mind to it, it cuts down on un-neccesary waste.
