Well blimey moses where has the flippin time gone? The last month has passed in a blur of plaster dust and muck from the new kitchen. ( All units fitted, appliances in and just painting and tiling left. I said it would be Christmas before it would be finished) And not one but two doses of flu. I never did do things by halves. One dose started about 3 weeks ago. Sore throat, hacking cough, well you know how it is, but this particular strain is not satisfied with just one visitation, oh no. Feeling on the mend for a few days and back to normal - well normalish when wallop the ruddy thing turns up for an encore.
On a brighter note Mother's recovery continues apace. When we went up to Colchester for BIL's funeral we left her up with my sister for a bit of R and R. She's been back down in Devon for a fortnight and she is really doing well. So well in fact that this morning she took herself off in a taxi and did her own shopping. I'm well impreseed and hope that I'll bounce back as well when I hit 87!!
I'm currently struggling with paint charts and tiles. I do love duck egg blue especially in a kitchen but the room faces due north and gets very little sun. It's a largish room with two big windows but it's never sunny. So do I go for duck egg walls and cream tiles and woodwork, or the other way round to inject a bit of warmth. Watch this space.
