Engagement Photos

And while I've got my posting mojo back, Mario Testino's official engagement photos of Wills & Kate were released today.

I thought you should know.

Refresh Me

When I caught up on some of my blog reading this morning I was inspired by Louise's from Table Tonic's energetic painting weekend. So when I inadvertently stumbled across an old tin of grey paint while looking for decking oil in our shed, I opted for the "more results quicker", forgot about the decking oil and decided to finally spruce up the ugly white boards at the front of the house.

Of course I forgot to take a before picture so here is the front porch being set up the day we got married.

The pretty lights and furniture are a distraction from how urglee the white boards were.

And this afternoon when I had finished the first coat of grey

(and yes, there sits another of my half finished projects, a couple of cane
chairs I am in the process of repainting).

May I just say, I rolled my ankle twice during this supreme effort of mine - firstly when I fell off the chair I was using as a ladder and secondly, a few hours later when I fell through the chair I was using as a ladder because it ahem, broke. Nicole, the universe is pleading with you.

We're back...

Have been back for over a week from our mini-break but the chaos of Christmas is engulfing me and I've been stalling like a silly thing. Of course we did have a lovely time, sun, sand & family. What's not to love? Well, too much sun apparently, or at least that's what we think was the impetus for Mr. B's violent vomiting resulting in a midnight dash and overnight stay hooked up to a drip in the little local hospital where we felt like we'd stepped back in time and on to the set of A Country Practice :)

Because I don't have the energy to trawl through our holiday happy snaps and sort them for uploading I'm going to be cheeky and upload the one we took with on my phone waiting for Mr. B to be discharged the next day.

Counting on you not reading this post babe :)
