I know, I know. My intention to blog more went out the window. I’m afraid that at times I feel like doing it, then a million and one things get in my way. Ok sometimes it’s just that the iPad is on the side table and daphne is asleep on my lap and I can’t face unsettling her. But recently its been a case of making a million and one expensive decision.
Big news folks. I bought a house. An actual semi-detached pile of bricks. And it feels fated. It’s on the road I was buying one on last year when it all fell through. It has a south facing gorgeous garden.
It’s amazing. She also had books like Delia’s book of Cakes ( not all cakes which is odd but ok), Make a Meal of Cheese and Michael Smith Entertains- The best of Pebble-Mill-At-One. It’s a remarkable culinary inheritance.
We’ve got a long way to go. We have to have a wall knocked out, a full rewire, a new boiler and then the “fun” starts. New bathroom and new kitchen, decorate throughout, new flooring etc. It’ll be a long process that we hope ends before Christmas. I loves me some Christmas.
It’s bloody hard work. You know when you watch Grand Designs and you think to yourself “bloody hell its been 8 months since Kevin was last there, what the hell have you been doing?”, for the next few months I won’t be doing that. Next year I’ll be doing it again I’m sure. Some of them are bone idle.
In other news I saw some more random shite in Home Sense. The one in the middle is particularly terrifying.
In other news, best Bake Off yet I would say. Well, maybe on a par with series 2!!!
