It’s felt a little bit spring like this last couple of days. I know that that sounds ridiculous since it’s the only second week of January but there has definitely been a hint of spring in the air.
Well, we all know what spring does. It makes one want to spruce everything up and give it a fresh new look. As I type I have a big tub of champagne coloured paint waiting to be slapped onto my bedroom wall. It’ll match the gawjuss sparkly paper I put on last year and make it positively glow, it’s going to be be beautiful when it’s done.
Once that’s been done the next job will be to jet wash the patio. That’s a massive job as it’s the length of the house and the two barns, getting wider as it goes along. Still, it’s an easy job that doesn’t require much in the way of brain power. That’ll suit me down to the ground at the moment. Hahaaa ‘down to the ground’ geddit?
Heckling from the gallery? What’s that? “Don’t give up your day job!”
I’ll get me coat *slinks out*
We’re also waiting for a builder to turn up *sigh* to replace a couple of dozen slates on the workshop roof. After that we’ll drop a couple of tons of gravel onto the track, get a gardener to do the heavy duty garden tidying and Bob’s yer uncle. A nicely spruced up house all ready to greet a new spring.
Isn’t it funny how just a bit of sunshine can give you a whole new perspective on life? It’s only yesterday it was all gloom and doom.
