Thursday mornings are my little bit of heaven. Charlie is at school and Rufus does 4 hours at nursery, me? I can do whatever I please!!
Being January there isn’t much I can do other than shop, decorate or the dreaded cleaning. But each week I plan to do something just for me, maybe go the city art gallery or the local auction… something I can’t do easily with the boys.
Saying that, today I found this gorgeous 70’s pink tablecloth in a charity shop for £5. Yes, I know I already have one, but look at it, it’s lovely. Might make cushion covers out of it.
I also bought some black frames for my two new prints, the drop is by the lovely Kerry over at The Seventytree and the second is homage to Cathrineholm kitchen ware, which I love, and is from here. I will take some better photographs of these when the sun is shining and they are on the wall.
The past 2 hours, I’ve been painting the landing white, going slightly mad, as I keep seeing patches. White on white is just so difficult to get even, well it is for me.
So that’s it, my 4 hours of me time is over.. time to pick up Ru.
