A rare sighting


Now you may think that in the last few weeks all I've done is swanned around eating home baked madeleines on beautifully upholstered sofas! Not so. Work had been progressing on guest room three, albeit slowly.

Andrew finished the plastering and put up the new coving and replacement picture rail.


Finished plaster


Nearly ready for decorating


In our renovation work it tends to be that we both demolish, Andrew does the hard  and technical work with the rebuilding and I decorate, floating around with swatches of fabric and paint charts. This room is nearly ready to be signed off to me, but I started a bit early with the ceiling and coving. You may have noted a singular lack of photographs of me on the blog, mainly because I really dislike being photographed. Foolishly I left my camera around and was stuck up a ladder with very little choice in the matter, you may notice I'm not smiling!  But at least it proves that I do make some contribution on the house.


Really not impressed
