Schools Out....

..for summer!!


And summer it has been today on the east coast - fabulous - long let it continue please!!!


The school hols go much quicker when the weather is at least dry. I don't mind the school hols - no clock watching - no mad morning rush (I'm not a morning person and I get up with the bare minimum of time!) but I suppose I'm fortunate that the eldest go to their dads for part of the break so I do get a breather!!!

Today my 3yr old went to the kindergarten he will be attending in September, he stayed all afternoon - without mummy! After the initial hissy fit - he had a great time and can't wait to go back! (Good job says I....I'm looking forward to the peace lol!!)


So I made myself busy...


In the last 24 hours I have started painting stools....


lacey the 1st one is dedicated to you xxx






This one is F&B breakfast room green- and I painted one in pale pink for my workroom which I may or may not decorate....

I also found the time to pick up a couple of chairs for my new dining table....




£2.50 each !!!! There were 3 but I just got the pair (now I'm fretting that the other one is left behind and I could use it in...well somewhere....!!)

As I type they look like this..

All primed and ready to rock!!! (Note:- using quick drying primer in blazing afternoon sun is not wise!!!) Please excuse the weeds :)


By Friday I want them to look splendid in breakfast room green - round my table as a surprise for my other half!!! I figure if they are complete before he gets home from work he can't be annoyed with yet more furniture turning up!!

I have to recover the seats too so here's hoping I don't run out of time.....


I seem to have my painting mojo back so perhaps I can do the other 24 stools this weekend!!!

Wow, you waste no time once you get going. I love the F&B green, and that's so sweet, to dedicate it to me. Thank you!
And the others are going to look good. £2.50 each is a real bargain. Almost as good as...
Nope, I won't say it! xxx
