....says she, tempting fate! 😉
Rambler, I laughed at your comment - it describes husband exactly, it was a comedy of errors and he certainly is an accident waiting to happen (as anyone who knows us will vouch for!). He's renowned for being clumsy, bless him.....I think it's to do with his dyslexia and dyspraxic tendencies. His balance is also poor (he could trip over a leaf) and his spatial awareness is non-existent - he bumps into people in the supermarket constantly, e.g. (thank goodness he doesn't do it in the car! 😱😂
Anyway, a good morning at the caravan.....we took Betty this time, so were able to spend a bit longer there. The decorating in the lounge is now finished, thank goodness, and it looks so much better - bright, fresh and modern. A couple of photos (as I know you're all gasping for some! 😁) :-
The new carpet starting to be put into position (Betty approves, she lay down on it straight away) - the difference in colour is partly the light, and partly because that was the end of the roll, I brushed my hand over it and stroking the pile made it all the same shade. The paint colour looks very light there, colours don't show up very well on my phone, it's slightly darker in real life. Although it wasn't my first choice colour, I'm actually really pleased with the carpet, it looks fab - or it will do once it's all properly laid. We were a bit knackered by this point, so left it and will lay it properly tomorrow.
The kitchen vinyl wallpaper arrived today, here it is:-
SO much better than that horrible iridescent tile stuff! That's my home kitchen worktop by the way, the wallpaper goes really well with it actually.....now there's a thought for the future 😃
Speaking of worktops, we stopped off at the woodyard on the way home today and bought a lovely offcut of worktop, just what we wanted - cost £20. I don't mind paying full price on some things when we can get bargains like that to offset the cost of the more expensive stuff.
The caravan next door neighbour lady was really chatty and friendly today, and she kept the yappy dogs inside, so it seems like she's thawed out completely now. Not met the husband yet, he appears to be disabled and spends all his time inside their caravan.
So it's back to the van tomorrow to finish laying the carpet. We'll take the sofa cushions with us too, it'll be nice to finally have something comfortable to sit on! It's all starting to come together now and I'm back to being really excited.
