Day Seventy-Two

Not a lot happening here on the regeneration today, the painter has done all he can before we move furniture upstairs – he’s doing the last coat once everything is up there, only problem is the back bedroom needs to finish being painted (by us).  I’ll be up there tomorrow trying hard to finish the walls.

This splendid wall light was made by F today at school. I think it’s amazing, can you guess the theme, your clue is Glasgow.

Got these beauties today hoping that they might grow so late since spring is eluding us this year.  I have chosen where they are going, near the summer house, just need to put them in.

love a bargain, love peonies too.

I’ll be sure to show you them when (if) they come through.  Rain is pelting down out there so no planting today.

Pieris

these bright leaves are everywhere in Edinburgh at the moment, must be a bumper year for them.

These are a couple more finds, the pink ones (not sure of the name,anybody know?) are from the garden and the Euphorbia are foraged, sort of.  I found them in a wee lane I walk down when I walk the dogs.

Day Seventy-One

We had a last minute bit of work today, the tiler arrived about 4pm and  he finished off the upstairs bathroom tiles and finally got the last blue tile down in the downstairs bathroom.

The  children are getting used to their new rooms upstairs, it will be much better once the carpet is in.  The upstairs bathroom has been painted, after 8 tester pots, from dark intense blue to light grey, it is white!  F is not liking all the white, he said tonight that it looks like the bathroom is decomposing because it’s white and grey, not sure of his logic really.  We’ve agreed  to keep it white until we find the perfect colour, if it exists.  I love the white…

We really are getting closer now, there is just so much more stuff everywhere – maybe we should just chuck it all and start again.  As many of you know that would be impossible for me!
