Still at the planning stage.
We're making progress on the house front, we're really are, but there are so so many decision to make all the time, at the same time that some evening I feel like my brain is the consistency of cheesy mash potatoes. There are moment that I would probably struggle to remember my name if somebody asked me.
Because you see... 'life' doesn't wait. Normal life doesn't wait for you to decide on paint colour, or handles, or light switches, or flooring or radiator covers or furniture or this sink instead of that sink.
Kids still need to wear clean clothes and they demand food all the time and the dog needs a walk, and bed don't make themselves. Weirdly.
So... I feel a little bamboozled. A lot actually.
This morning I learnt a lot about chimney sweeping. I probably should have told the sweet chap who came to clean ours that I wasn't really all that interested in taking up the profession... but I just couldn't. I'm sure that with the right equipment I could probably do it now. Oh well.
Anyway, back to lighting.
Yesterday I drove, - in the sun, under a perfect blue sky, makes a change - to Ross-on-Wye because I this old chandelier belonging to my grandmother had been sitting in my garage for years and finally I'd found someone who could fix it.
Result. Another item off the list from hell.
BUT then I also found that this great company (FRITZ FRYER) also makes gorgeous lights which they will be perfect to light up the top of the island in the new kitchen, and some for the boys' den, and some for the entrance hall...
Cool eh? And British made. And local.
Couldn't be happier.
