Blah

When work started on the bathroom I was on my best behaviour, we are now a few days over and I'm pretty much slobbing around in my pyjamas, watching Dexter while eating bourbon creams for breakfast. It's taken a whole two weeks, but today I had bants with the plumber, I don't think either of us could believe it. Hilarious in only the way two people who are really thinking "thank goodness this is nearly over" can experience. 

Anyway, after a start to the day that involved an ill (now recovered) bunny and the dropping of a tin of paprika I decided I should do something to make me feel as though the house might one day be in some kind of order, so I sorted out some books. I've decided to part with a few, if anyone is interested in one of them then let me know, otherwise I'll drop them off at a charity shop.

The Gentle Art Of Domesticity - Jane Brocket

Dozens Of Ways To Repurpose A Tea Towel - Nathalie Mornu

Country Living, Love Stitching - Jan Constantine
Home - Anita Kaushal

  1. I'm glad your bunny is better now, give her snuggles from me.

    I'd be interested in the Jane Brocket book if no one else wants it xxx

    1. Thank you, she wasn't eating so Dan gave her a massage and she was fine soon afterwards, obviously we're still keeping an eye on her.

      Two people fancy the book so I'll pull a name out of a hat!

  2. We watched Dexter, it was very addictive, we use to binge watch it.
    I wouldn't mind the Gentle Art of Domesticity please if you have no takers.
    The sun is shining here and I am in decluttering mode, so I shall be taking some things to the charity shop soon.

    1. I'd heard lots about Dexter but never got round to watching it but put it on to pass the time when I was ill. You're right, it is quite addictive.

      Enjoy your decluttering. I'll do a draw for the book as a couple of people like the look of it.

  3. I hate having workmen in the house, so I'm full of admiration that you've coped with one for 2 weeks! I'm sure the bathroom will be well worth it. I would love either the teatowel or the love stitching book.

    1. Thank you. I think we're going to be having work done for about the next month, but I think I'd rather have a huge hit of disruption than spread it out over months and months.

      Could you please send me your address again, I think I deleted lots of old emails, and I'll get a book in the post to you thriftdeluxe@gmail.com

  4. I did laugh at the eating bourbon biscuits for breakfast, we would definitely get on.
