mainly because husband has dug his heels in about the bedroom, the nice Polish guy I asked to quote for bookshelves has gone AWOL and the parents in law have been to stay for an extended FIL's birthday/Fathers' Day jamboree. We let them have our bedroom ( how kind!) and slept downstairs in the new ex garage, which I have to say was a sight more pleasant, even on those funny flop out folding beds we got for the kids to have sleepovers. I do love a plain white room - it was bliss waking up to white light filtering through the blinds rather than the crack and several layers of peeling plaster. I keep explaining that the bedroom too could be similarly gorgeous but he is strangely resistant. Part reluctance to have any more builders in the house and part very sensible but v tedious financial caution. Also, as he keeps saying, it's only about a month since the bathroom was finished - can't I take a short break?
Ho hum. People keep telling me how thrilled I must be to have it all finished, and of course I am - but I do like to have a little project on the go!
Anyway, more excitingly, the Worst House was immortalised yesterday on the Living Etc forum. Forum member Griffo68 rather marvellously creates a spoof magazine cover every month and the WH's kitchen extension is on the latest one! I have been beside myself with excitement over it, sending it to all and sundry. Except my mum, of course, who wouldn't get it at all...
