They say it’s the race that stops a nation, but it didn’t stop me this year. Too busy yesterday wielding a heat gun and a paint scraper to be interested in horse racing! So while everyone else was donning colourful dresses, hats and heels, I was pulling out my work clothes. Not glamorous I’m afraid, but at least we made a good start on operation Tiling the Front Porch. It’s so handy to have a public holiday just when you need a stretch of uninterrupted time to get a job done. Whenever I tackle a little DIY project like this I have a renewed respect for tradespeople – to do that every day!!
Anyway, it was a lovely long weekend here. I just love time at home together, and I do love cold, rainy weather. It never fails to put me in the mood for rooms like this:
And in other news, I think I may have finally found the perfect paisley for my living room curtains (this has been a long search)!
