Signs and titles

I think my Penguin mugs collection is getting slightly out of hand, but I do love them. They seem to bring out a few more titles every couple of years. The only colour we haven't got is the classic orange - I'll have to put one on my Christmas list.

I've found a more permanent home for the garage sign I prised off the front of the house before the builders arrived - above the door in the downstairs loo (which was, like the small sitting room, carved out of the former garage.) I did have it in a frame above my desk but it was too heavy for it and going wonky!

Thanks for all the lovely comments everyone! Good luck with the roof MaryPoppins - let's hope the Indian summer lasts a bit longer. I'd love to make my own curtains Lavender but I am a complete butter fingers with a needle and thread. I was always the girl in needlework at school who somehow managed to wrap both sewing machine and self in a big tangle of thread. I did manage to make a skirt once ( from one of those Simple patterns) but by that point the rest of the girls in my class had moved on to designing couture or something...

ooo i like those mugs Georgie - you can get deckchairs in the same designs as well - you could have them all lined up in your lovely garden :-D
I remember that sign from back in the day when you were going through it all! must seem like a distant memory now......

My photo
I'm 39 and married with two children aged seven and four. I'm fatally attracted to house renovation projects, and this is our third in the last seven years, my personal fifth since I bought my first flat in 1996. I think we might have bitten off more than we can chew with the Worst House.

Fame at last!
