YOU KNOW WHEN...

.... you have been telling your self for YEARS that you will "get round" to completing a project ... "sorting out the front room!".... sometime  AND THEN.. the motivation .. or something wacky in the air that you inhale or what ever!... comes along LIKE ...your daughter coming home from Australia for the first time in 4 years ....for a month in December and you ....JUST DO IT ?

WELL that is why I sort of feel like a steam roller has landed on my shoulders and knees .. don't even mention other parts of this poor old body! lol x

My front room has NO furniture ... NO books or ornaments .. NO pictures .. or ANYTHING including wallpaper on the walls...


NO carpet ... it had only been down for 27 years ...!!!!


...need I say more? lol When I can lift my arms the curtains will come down too x

NOW .....I am ready to be pampered and fed grapes while I recover .... mm cant see that happening so I will settle for not falling asleep over my knitting/laptop... and doing a little sewing ... and  ..trying to read all the Blogs that you lovely people have been writing this last week x

Have fun

You've started what I have to do very soon as my dining room carpet has been down since 1976. Scary. Well done to you for all you've managed already and I look forward to seeing the transformation.
Right.... I'm going to Germany tomorrow.... that's my excuse for not starting.

Wow, you have certainly done a lot of work so far, now you can't show us any more until your daughter has seen it!! Don't want to spoil her surprise!! Just remember to take lots of well earned breaks, or you may do yourself some damage...

How very exciting for you that they are coming over finally. Hope everything gets finished and you get suitably rested.
