Hello. I'm getting quite excited about the summer house now, did you like my sea view, ha ha, painted on the back of the garage. Just the finishing touches to do. This morning I was firkling in the cupboard under the stairs for my gigantic box of washing powder, the plastic tub under the sink needed filling up. Lo and behold, what did I find, two packs of carpet tiles brought from my old house when I moved here, that was 18 years ago. I had forgotten all about them, just goes to show how you should turn out your cupboards and drawers now and again, just to aquaint yourself with all your possessions. These are going to come in very useful as a floor covering in the summer house. Fantastic find.
There is a door which is mainly glass, on the hedge side. All I can see is the pallet holding the side together, so I need to put a curtain up to cover the ugliness. After a search through my stash for suitable fabric I found this colourful piece of canvas which used to be a wind break. I think I got it out of a skip somewhere, it was earmarked for shopping bags, but this will be a better use for it. Two seams had to be unpicked where the poles went through, it was a bit mucky so I washed it. When it's dry all I need to do is iron it, trim a bit off the bottom because it is too long, and push a wooden rod through the top seam to hang it. Job done, easy to make curtain.
I was in the garden all afternoon yesterday. Caught Mayze napping in the bean bed. Bet she is not pleased this morning to find her snug little bolt hole has gone. I stripped it of all the foliage, nothing is growing anyway, and now it is covered with plastic. Part of my big tidy up, I'll decide what to do with it later. She has a new dry bed on the wooden shelves next to the garage.
Just to let you know I am getting towards the end of my yellow sticker food. These are the ingredients for a smoothie made with the prepared fruit, grapes, a tomato, salad leaves, and chopped cauliflower added. I will go to tesco sometime this week as I have a £4 off voucher, would be daft not to use it, and I need rice pudding and bran flakes.
