Decorating the cottage has been under way over recent days.
It began with a thorough clean and dust which inevitably led onto other things…painting and moving furniture, as well as painting furniture!
This is what happens when one starts the process…Quentin Crisp once said that it was a never-ending task once undertaken…however, it has come to a close, for the moment at least!
Even the rough carpentry I attempted ten years ago at the beginning of my tenure here, looks appropriately renewed, if not perfect.
The results are here for you to see and I am happy to have a cleaner, brighter kitchen, as well as an easier to use sitting room and all on a budget too!
The paint on the walls, a slate grey, is actually masonry paint for the outside walls of a house…bequeathed to me as leftovers from a friend of a friend…it works well and is much tougher than interior matt paint.
I have taken bags of stuff to the charity shop, as well as giving much away to friends.
All are happy and most of all me!
I have a dedicated area for the juicer as I intend to do a lot more juicing in the coming year.
I have little excess stuff and so feel much lighter, both physically and spiritually.
My little cottage has space to welcome more of Mother Nature and that I am very happy about indeed!
