Remember when I said I was flat out like a lizard drinking.. well now I feel like a cat in a tree... ha.. not really. This is my new neighbour's cat. I came up my front stairs and here he was.. he lives in the unit behind this one. That is my tree that is getting cut in about 2 weeks (when I finish the kitchen) as it has grown madly in the last 6 months right over the neighbours lower roof and clothes line. I have good patient neighbours!
Just to give you an idea how high it is.. that tree top is sitting above the 6 foot fence! At first I thought maybe kitty is stuck, but then I corrected my thoughts as I figured if he was stuck, he'd be crying and he just looked bothered that I'd noticed him. When I spoke to his owner, I was told that he stares down the big possums (brush tail as opposed to smaller ring tail)and that is a good thing! They
This is how my kitchen looks mid way through the preparation for painting. It's an old house and not much done to it with it's 50's kitchen. I can't afford a new kitchen but I will paint it a bright aqua colour today (ceiling done yesterday - what a killer on my bad neck!)and the cupboards will be painted a stainless colour. I will rearrange it (not much room for that really) and add some wall cupboards or shelves or both which you will notice I have none of.. so this will add to my storage. I'm so used to the look of not having them (been here 22 years!) I hope I won't feel overwhelmed by them.. I'm sure more storage will negate that feeling..Ha!
Notice the sewing machine and overlocker are on the table.. well they've moved into the sewing/study room which is a pit with all the other stuff in there and that will be next for a paint job. Hope it's before uni starts so I can feel refreshed and new. I hope I get time to sew soon too! I have my boy back on Sunday night so I'd like to have the kitchen finished and the rest will be done when school starts the week after...how does 6 weeks go so quickly. I only get 3 weeks with my boy so that limits it even more.I've heard some mothers counting down till they can send their kids back to school.. but that's not me.. I love my son's company and doing things together. We might paint the front fence! Back to the painting... do you renovate?
