Yesterday was rather a mixed day.
I decided to spray my skip find - red. Here is the "before" picture:
All well and good you'd think. Not so, dear readers. In between bouts of spraying, I spent much of my time wiping red footprints off the kitchen floor. Note to self, must put down more newspaper when spraying (and must stop being so clumsy - I ruined two pairs of perfectly decent socks in the process).
When I wasn't wiping down the kitchen floor, I was busy stepping in horse manure (thank you Mr J and P for that), walking it up the stairs and into virtually every room in the house and then wondering what the horrid smell was and then when I realised, scrubbing the stairs and mopping every room in the house - grrrrrrr.
Blimey, I was knackered after all that. Anyway, enough of that do you want to see the hangity hang shelfy thingy in all its red glory? Here it is:
Earlier in the week I discovered that I'd WON a giveway by the lovely Pene on Scrap my Mid Life Crisis. Wanna see?
Lovely aren't they? Thank you Pene so much. Unfortunately, Little Miss J and P has comandeered both the love hearts and the doggie - boo hoo.
The rather wonderful Sarah at Modern Country Style has tagged me, so here, folks are my answers to the following questions:
What did you want to be when you were growing up?
What do you like most about where you live?
We're close to Epping Forest and not too far from London Town - so best of both worlds really.
If you could only rescue three things from your house what would they be?
I'm struggling with this one. OK, the external hard drive with rather a lot of photos on it, my ipod touch and a photo of my mum and dad.
What's your favourite book?
Vikram Seth's A Suitable Boy. At around 1400 pages, I felt very sad when I'd finished it - it was like I'd lost an old friend. Excellent book.
What's your favourite room in your house?
Probably the bedroom - I love going to bed early and snuggling in my bed either reading my book or reading blogs on my ipod touch! In fact, sometimes Mr J and P and I sit there side by side in bed playing with our devices (I bet you wondered what I was going to say then) - we' re soooo the modern couple!!
What's your favourite joke?
I never remember jokes - so I haven't got a favourite but this one's quite funny methinks:
What's the difference between a kangaroo and a kangaroot? A kangaroo is a marsupial and a kangaroot is a Geordie stuck in a lift.
OR, if you don't know what a Geordie is (a person from the north east of England with a lovely accent): What's yellow and hides in Afghanistan? The Talibanana.
What would you most like to change about your house?
Well, it's the garden I would most like to change. I'd prefer a much bigger one!
Do you believe in love at first sight?
I've never fallen in love at first sight but Mr J and P has - and it was with me!!! So, yes, I believe it does happen!
OK folks, the rules say I have to tag 4 lovely peeps. Here they are:
Angela at Bounty Huntress
Nic at Woodbank Crafts
Jo at Hesta Nesta
Twiggy at The World of TwiggyPeasticks
It's totally up to you guys if you want to take part (you don't have to if you don't want to) and you can make up your own questions to pass on. I'm sticking with these questions as my brain has come to a complete stand still today........
Have a good weekend one and all.
