Weekly Smile – (3TC #573)

I don’t know whether it’s anything to do with the second phase of lockdown, lift off but all of my projects seem to be drawing to an end … at very long last.

The bedroom windows have been plastered and painted, ready for the new bedroom furniture, that’s been on order since January. I’m sure the container must have been “stuck on the Ever Given in the Suez Canal” but the furniture has arrived in the UK, which means we should be taking delivery soonest. 😆

The plans for a new, stripy, carpet for the stairs in the hall had been blown off course by (believe it not) the cat.  We had chosen what we wanted, only to find that loop pile carpets are just not ‘puss’ friendly; one slight pull leads to the entire carpet unravelling in one joyous, playful game. So, when the shops reopened on the 12th, we went in search of an alternative; cut pile and found it in shop number four. We were beginning to give up but …  Yay! Liking this one better. 😄

We ambled around in the garden at the weekend taking advantage of the pleasant weather. There isn’t much we can do until the new back lawn is laid at the end of the month; so we moved some pots, planting out beens and courgettes, then attacked the somewhat neglected evergreens in the front. Of course, you know what happens when you are pottering?

Ah yes … personal plans are now afoot for establishing a tapestry lawn for the front, complete with stepping stones and a rather lovely climbing rose … 😇

  1. Why did you plaster over your bedroom windows!? You need to let air and light in!

    I believe the Ever Given is still in the canal. The Suez operators won’t release it until they pay a billion dollars in compensation.


  2. Oh, the fun of being a homeowner! It seems our place of abode can throw all sorts of curves at us…some good, some not so good. Things have a way of going off the rails all too easily around my house.


  3. Saw you at Weekly Smile. Your last name (whether its your real name or a screen name) caught my attention! Love your header, Jesh
