A week of doing nothing

Yes you did read the title correctly. Have had the builders in putting tongue and groove  plus new doors in the hallway. Got making coffee down to a fine art, lol.  apart from the painting the hall is finished. Four doors, tongue and groove and a dado rail. Going to be mellow green on the tongue and groove, the doors remain as plain oak but stained with matt Sadolin. The dado rail, skirting and the top of the wall white.

I have not done any crafting as been baby sitting a whingy dog, he hates visitors as messes with his strict routine. Not that we have imposed him with a routine he has sorted his own daily life out and we have to work round him. Walkies, fun & games, snacks, naps, din dins more snacks and naps, then more snacks and naps ..........

Have been reading. Two books A Fowl Murder by Joanna Sheen, love her books based in Devon. Plus to top up an order with Amazon (must get free postage) bought the Mary Portas book 'Shop Girl' so far very interesting and have to drag myself away.

I get like this with books, so involved in the story line that everything else just disappears into the background.

Hope to get back into some creativity next week but then again the paint brushes may call me.

  1. Actually it sounds like a very busy week.

  2. Your hall is looking beautiful, the pain of dog sitting was worth it. I totally get lost in books, it's fabulous to escape away from the everyday.

  3. Sounds like your week has been pretty full. Your hallway looks lovely! xx
