Yes we are still diy-ing
By "we" I obviously mean my good husband

I haven't just sat around doing nothing though... I have acted as a weight, I've carried, made tea, and made coffee, provided lots of witty comments, stuck felt pads onto our furniture and I even cut a piece of underlay. I'm extraordinarily helpful.

~ I was very very sad to have finished one of the best books I've ever read.
~ I watched Lolita. Jeremy Irons is absolutely compelling even as Humbert.
~ England won the second Ashes test match at Lords! And I was there! Fantastic!
~ Mr B had to do an intensive cricket-refresher-session with me over the weekend to prepare for Lords. I now know what a Michelle is {Michelle Pfeiffer is cockney rhyming slang for "five for"!}
~ I fell from a 17.3 hand chesnut beauty called Rowan in the Great Park! I have a blue elbow and blue knee! Really could have done without that, especially when called upon to co-lift heavy furniture.
~ I met up with friends, had breakfast out, got a little sunshine on my arms and took my new toy out for a play
~ We've decided to go for the green/grey colour!! It didn't come up well in the photo below - in reality it's lovely, neutral and fresh.

Coming soon
More photos (of course) and the results of our home revamp!! I can't wait!

  4. I can't wait to see the final results!

  5. Oh no, I hope you're feeling better from your fall!

    And, I have the same thoughts about great books -- I don't want them to end!

  6. You've got HOLGA!!!!???
    You know that I was almost to buy it! next time maybe I'll do it...

    Green gray sounds good...my pc doesn't have the best resolution if you know what I mean...I'm a Pc not a Mac!
    but not for so long!

    P.s. Thank you!

  7. When we moved I was 9 months pregnant. Needless to say I did a lot of "supervising." Can't wait to see the pics!

  8. oooo i love diy! my boyfriend is so NOT the home-improvement type, so when the time comes for us to get a home, i have a feeling that those responsibilities will rest on me (or someone hired...)

    anyway, good luck with the rest of your home makeover, i can't wait to see the finished product!

  9. You fell from a 17.3 hand horse?! What a fall! Do you ride often? What do you do?

    I ride, too. I train for 3-day Eventing, I love to jump, but also trail ride through the Arizona desert. I love horses!
