It has taken our dedicated house painter 4 weeks to spruce up our very dilapidated house exterior. It's a job that has been long overdue, and we are thrilled with the results. I expect you're as nosy as me, so I thought I would show you.
We have been living here for six years and in that time we have almost doubled the size of the house, put in a new kitchen and bathrooms and have decorated it throughout. And as you know dear reader we are now turning our full attention to the garden. We will be spending a great deal of time at home this Summer and we want to maximise the garden's potential for our enjoyment.
But blimey it has taken a long time to get everything in tip top condition and 'just so'. It is of course down to resources. Everything we could do ourselves, we have. But we both knew the exterior needed a professional hand, and we found a terrific local guy who has been brilliant. All that's left for us to do now is the repainting of the older windows and doors, which are in the original part of the house, and to varnish some of the sun bleached sills. Which we will do over the rest of the Summer - no rush.
So this evening my dears I will be pouring a wee glass of chilled blonde sherry, parking my rear on our swing seat at the back of the garden and gazing down with fondness at the back of my newly painted 'Cornish Cream' home. Skol!
