Just As I Suspected....

I KNEW I'd made the right decision not to dismantle the PC until this morning.  I looked out the window and realised it was highly unlikely that my decorator would be able to get here today.

Sure enough, at 8 o'clock he rang to say that he wasn't.  I don't blame him at all, his kids will be off school and they can have a lovely day making snowmen and having snowball fights.  I did advise him to carry out a risk assessment prior to engaging in any fun - to check that no-one was likely to slip/get cold/retaliate with guns and knives.  Probably best to ask the intended target if it would be ok to throw a snowball at them, before doing so, just to be on the safe side.
 Anyway, my sewing room is hardly a 'life or death' situation is it?  Plus, as I am not going anywhere today, and will be sitting in my lounge surrounded by mounds of 'stuff' it will be an ideal opportunity to have a very ruthless sort out and hopefully there will be less to go back in the room when it is decorated.
Incidentally, if anyone wants two binders worth of Embroidery magazines, (the Embroiderer's Guild ones) dating from 1990 let me know - although you'd have to be within 'collecting' distance I guess.  If I come across anything else that I think anyone could make use of, I'll let you know.

I'm only having the room decorated because I saw this lovely paper ...

I kept going back to B&Q to look at it, trying to decide if it would be a bit much.  Then I went into a new 'boutique' in town - I hope that doesn't date me - are they still called 'boutiques'? (Actually, if they are, I dare say the spelling has probably degenerated to 'Booteeks') Anyway, the paper looked lovely on the walls, so I immediately went and bought a couple of rolls.  It's only going on one wall in my sewing room, and the rest will be painted cream.  I'm really looking forward to seeing it finished.  Sitting here in the empty room - it seems so much better already with no clutter in it, so I really am determined to get rid of a load of stuff that I've been keeping 'just in case'.
Right, I'd better get started.  (Still snowing) x


  1. Oooh! My bedroom curtains are a lot like your new wallpaper... and I love them! You wouldn't believe we were only a few miles further north. We only had about half inch of snow, although it's coming down now. And my boiler hasn't arrived... it left Bedfod at 9 this morning!

  2. You must have a lovely garden in the spring-summer! It is beautiful this time of year all covered in snow! Good luck with the decorating once the snow lets up!
