HOW TIMES FLIES....
Goodness! I really have got some catching up to do, I’ve just checked and find that my last post was on 4th October and I’m way out of touch with reading all your lovely blogs too.
We have been really busy with so many things this month which has resulted in the house being in quite a disruptive state. After a lot of pondering and feeling apprehensive, John and I finally made the decision to take up the carpets in the dining and sitting room and lay wooden floors and I’m just so delighted as we love the effect. This now makes the whole of the ground floor of our home completely carpet free as terracotta tiles feature in other areas. I’ve quickly discovered how much easier this makes cleaning and I’m all for that! My next decision to ponder is, should we take up the stair carpet and paint the stairs to create a more shabby chic effect? I’ll let you know on that one.
The job of the two of us laying the floors was one thing, but the upheaval of moving furniture and sorting out so much clutter was a big enough task on its own. However, its all been worthwhile and our busy week culminated in a wonderful weekend when my brother and a friend of his from church came to stay.
The weather was perfect and our guest, who we hadn’t met before, was delightful company. Interesting conversation and lovely walks were enjoyed by all. I’ll post pictures of the new floors shortly.
