I`m still here

Good morning all.I`m still here, honest.The carpet man came yesterday and we have picked our bedroom carpet and cushion flooring for the kitchen.My mobile phone is up and running.I undercoated the ORANGE gloss paint in the kitchen last night, yes it was bright orange.The tenants before us had an obsession with coloured paintwork.yuk.At the mo it is grey ready for me to put the gloss white on.We hit a problem with the little alcove my microwave sits in as the plaster fell off but i am hoping to use some plywood to cover it (fingers crossed).The walls are a mix of bare plaster and welded on woodchip so  i am using some PVA solution the plasterer gave us to coat all the walls ready for my textured paint.
Today i have to paint on the PVA, paint the ceiling and then do the white gloss.Hopefully tomorrow then the textured paint will go on.Its mine and hubbys wedding anniversary tomorrow so it will be good for him to paint with me, lol.
We are off to Alton towers on Monday and then my brother in law is getting married next Friday.I feel like i`m going to meet myself coming back.lol.But i am enjoying myself as i know it will look lots better once its finished.
I am really missing visiting you all though and missing my craft corner, i have new goodies waiting to be played with too and they are sitting on my desk taunting me :S
I hope you are all well and hugs for those of you feeling under the weather.
See you soon
Hugs Coops.xx

Goodness Coops, you are a busy girl and your making me feel guilty sitting here lounging in the sun!

All of your hard work will be worth it and once it's done, you can play with your new goodies.

Hi, Nic! My word you are a busy bee at the moment! Don't envy you all the decorating, although it is very satisfying once it's done - I'll have the whole house to do next Spring once the council have modernised, I'm dreading it in one way, but can't wait too! Have a wonderful anniversary tomorrow and I hope you get the gloss off your skin and hair before Friday, coz it always gets everywhere! Lisa x
