Boring ..... but still exciting for me

Sorry no sewing.. no pictures either. I'm still painting and am bored to death with it. I have painted the kitchen (cupboards still need painting, the study/sewing room and the toilet. Last Saturday when I was just about done with the painting I had a call for a large mirror door wardrobe that I had for sale on Gumtree. I was worried I wouldn't sell it but they took it which was great as this Saturday I am getting wardrobes built in!! I painted the bedroom last year but I couldn't do that wall so I had to do this wall before the cabinet maker comes. 

I can't wait for the wardrobes. What with moving all the stuff around from the kitchen to the sewing room, all out of the sewing room to the kitchen and the toilet stuff on the deck; I feel like one of those hoarder people where you walk around stuff.. not that bad but messy! Since the wardrobe was sold all my stuff is on the floor of my room and my son's little wardrobe was sold a few weeks ago so every room in the house is a mess. This is the first real storage I'll have.. it'll be like a different world. 

The 'before' shot. Next week comes the
I have bought a nice roller blind for the sewing room and kitchen and some fabric to cover my old office chair. I have been planning how to make the most of the limited space in the sewing room/study - I'm really working hard to get it all prepared before I start uni. After some wild storms recently I also had to chop a tree down and tidy some of the garden up too. I've worked hard this holiday!

I have only a week and a half left before I start uni for my last semester. I am excited however because the week that uni starts I go to Sydney with a friend of mine to see Nick Cave with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra (stop me if I've said already). It's also my friend's 55th birthday. He used to live in Sydney and we would see bands all the time together; including The Birthday Party(which was Nick Cave's band then)at the Sydney University Refectory on 6 January, 1982! We are very excited - then we go to the Brisbane show on the 8 March too at the River Stage. Great!! Hopefully this weekend the house will transform and I shall sew next week for my trip. Wish me luck!


  1. I think I was probably at the same Refectory gig! I hope you have a great time. I'm going to see Presidents of the USA at the Coolangatta Hotel on March 9.

  2. Good morning, would you please get in touch with me and send me your snail mail? I did decide to send a surprise to everyone who commented on my giveaway post. Have a nice day. C
