More about the kitchen

This is a picture of us living in chaos. I’d like to say that we don’t normally live like this, but that would probably be lying.

On Sunday, slightly hungover from a friend’s party the night before, I was sitting on the floor with an air hammer in my hands and the compressor blaring while I chiselled up the last of the horrible old Sainsburys tiles that were on the floor beforehand. We had, of course, left the most difficult bits till last. We finally moved the fridge into its new position, so we could do under that now too. (I keep walking to the wrong side of the room to get the orange juice).

The floor is in a terrible state; all kinds of different levels and surfaces, but we can’t afford to have the whole floor re-done properly. I’m just going to do the best I can with the mortar I’m sticking the tiles down with. It’ll be fine!

For now at least! So it was her idea to have afternoon tea in the garden with a nod to an Alice in Wonderland theme….
Painting my gong copper
October 27, 2016
You probably won’t find another blog post with the same title as this one! But that’s literally what this post is about. I have childhood memories of a place called Foxlease in the New Forest where we’d sometimes have a little holiday. It was something to do with the fact that my Mum was a Guide leader. Anyway, it was a big old stately home and they had a huge dinner gong to tell everyone staying there that dinner was ready. Every evening they would take in turns letting the kids bang the gong. It never was my turn….
Boots No 7 LIFT & luminate Day cream review
March 8, 2017
For me there’s a fine line between looking young and dewy, and looking fat and sweaty. This is the problem of having a round chubby face, and I’ve always gone as matte as possible with my make-up to avoid the second scenario as much as possible. However, as Boots no7 changed the formula of their Protect and Perfect Day cream, and I wasn’t as impressed as I was with their older version, I thought I would try out this one, which is part of their new Lift & Luminate range…..
