Finally got the bathroom finished..it is now girlie heaven...much to my sons' amusement.

This is my first ever attempt at wallpapering and I did a fine job if I do say so and all that.Am so pleased with it.

Working full time and trying to do stuff is just hard work sometimes as a million things seem to get in the way.I am sure you all feel the same way!

Anyway,the satisfaction is all the greater when you do it yourself...though if I win the lottery I will GET SOMEONE IN!

Another busy weekend passes.Had to clear the loft ready for it's being properly insulated.Nothing of any interest up there,so I consoled myself with a trip out on Sunday,after the opening of the MOTHERS DAY cards from my lovely sons...who had both been to Cath Kidston to find me little packages to make me smile.They did.How sweet that they care enough to hang out there,both being boys and well into the age where it is the last place on earth they want to hang out.My day ended with some listing on ebay and a huge bottle of wine with friends...ready for work the next day.The work in the loft still found me tired this morning,but the sight of the pristine loft has lifted my spirits!

It even smells good!

I had a busy weekend,how about you?

Found these lovely "inspirational texts"on ebay USA and just had to have a go!

They are great as they cling to smooth surfaces(even old cottage walls)and you can take them down without marking the walls.It was tricky to get the hang of at first but I am really delighted with the finished result.Now,I must think what I could put in the bathroom....apart from the wall of lovely antique roses wallpaper a la Kidston that is the next job.Have a great week everyone...
