Day 681 hail and shine all day and I came home to a painted kitchen 🎨🖌👨🏻‍🎨

Crazy weather again today. One minute the sun is out and the next it’s full on hail showers or torrential rain.

I’m definitely getting the cold. My headache is totally gone but I’ve a sore throat, sore ears and runny nose with the occasional chesty cough. Happy days.

I took a Lemsip to the Fit Body Farm this morning. Drank it before the class started. Warmed me right up! That’s the first run I’ve done and actually I managed it fine. The class was great. It was dry when we did the warm up and the next time I looked outside it was monsoon conditions!

Daylight when I left… it’s lovely to see daylight again at that time in the morning.

My diet is pretty poor just now. I bought lots of healthy salad this week and instead have bought filled rolls at work. It’s not the end of the world but I just need a treat. Something that’s not lettuce, tomato and cucumber just now.

I laughed a bit too much at this!

I love that…. I am most definitely under construction. ♥️🧡

So work was busy and went fast again today. When I left it was pouring and sunny at the same time.

So eery…. the light was blinding at times on the drive home and the rain was torrential.

So I came home to find that Craig had painted the kitchen! Now it’s been in a dreadful state as our kitchen is between the coal fire and the wood burning stove and obviously has the oven and hob so the walls really don’t stand a chance.

There are 3 stages to this job… first to paint the walls and ceiling, then to paint the actual cupboards themselves and then to sand down the work surfaces and oil them.

So the ceiling and walls are done ✅ He did warn me that the kitchen was a riot… indeed it is!

Unfortunately it’s highlighted that the leak we had sorted back in 2016, is still really bad and the old chimney in the kitchen is crumbling due to the water ingress. It’s high enough up that wee tiny me can’t really see it… but it’s really bad.

I knew there was something wrong when I took sugar out of the cupboard recently and it felt damp. I ried to ignore it!

We live in a 250 + year old house and have had to turn a blind eye to some of the leaks as we can’t afford to fix them all….. this one is reminding us that we can’t really ignore them for too long as they are only going to get worse.

So no pics of the riot just yet but suffice to say the walls are a beautiful colour and so much brighter than the colour they had faded to. Well done that man as my Gran would say!

I’m meeting the Crochet Hookers tonight so we’ll be back to making poppies again for remembrance. Looking forward to a good giggle again tonight. I might manage 5 of them in time for November. 😂😂😂

Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️
