Sealing the floor

Rustic Kitchen renovation

After reading all about the different types of sealant on the internet and the best advice for terracotta tiles, I decided to go for the only  kind they sell in the local Focus. This is Q EP Tile Sealer.

I had to seal the floor before we went on holiday due to the influx in the house of young children and yappy dogs with continence problems while we were away. I wish I had done it differently though. I rubbed it on with many cloths that I cut from old tracksuit trousers, which did have the benefit of cleaning them at the same time as I was rubbing. To be honest, this was probably the best way, but it took so long! I didn’t have time to do a second coat before we left, which is a shame. The cloth didn’t get into the joins, but a brush would have done, but by the time we got back, all the joins were full of animal hair and dirt that wouldn’t even come out with a hoover nozzle.

I’ve decided to save the second coat of sealant until I’ve done the grout.

Burlesque Wonderland – Alice through the Martini glass at The Fleece in Bristol
October 5, 2016
From blackberries yesterday to burlesque today! And why not? Rain didn’t really know what to do to celebrate her twenty-first birthday. She had originally planned a day of wand-making (yes really) with her two best friends, followed by films and a sleepover. Then Jude spotted this event in Bristol just a couple of days beforehand and we all decided that we’d quite like to go. So the wand-making stopped early for everyone to change into their Alice in Wonderland Costumes….
Anti-reflective coating on your glasses – is it worth it?
October 9, 2016
Whenever I’m recording a You Tube video in my work-room, all I seem to do is spin round in circles trying not to have massive white rectangles on my glasses. They somehow even manage to appear with my back to the window! When Chris is taking photos for my Weekly Wardrobe posts, we’ve more-or-less given up with glasses, so I stumble about blind for the sake of not having glaring white blobs in the middle of my face. (Hashtag blogger problems.) I am so short-sighted, I cannot see a thing without them, and I hate that feeling so much. So finally, even though there was nothing particularly wrong with my glasses, I decided to splash out and buy a new pair with anti-reflective coating….
The romance of a well
November 18, 2016
I was pretty much brought up on Enid Blyton and it instilled in me a desire to live in a cute cottage in a countryside village. A well in the garden would be an added bonus. Well, although more of a farmhouse than a cottage, I am lucky enough to have fulfilled that dream. We were told by the previous owner that the well in the garden used to also serve the farmworkers’ cottages opposite. The path leading from the well to an iron gate half way down the garden would suggest that’s true. We live at the top of a hill, and as far as I’m aware, the only other well at the top of the hill in Somerset is in a small village called Kilmersdon, which is famous for the Jack and Jill nursery rhyme. Wouldn’t it be cool if that’s a mistake and it was actually our well? Haha!….
