Day 685 a very rainy Sunday so nothing else to do but paint 🎨 🖌 (the kitchen cupboards nothing artistic 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️🤣)

It has not stopped raining ALL day. It’s been a torrential downpour since we woke up.

Yesterday I embraced it and went out and seized the day. 💪🏼

Today I’ve avoided it like the plague!!

I came through to this first thing. Craig had lit the candles and fire.

A lovely way to start the day when it’s so dark and miserable outside.

I said the other day about Craig painting the kitchen and cupboards and we really weren’t sure about the colour. I felt really bad after all the work Craig put in. I tried so hard to like it but figured if I couldn’t put a photo in the blog then it meant I really didn’t like it 🤣 life according to blog content. 🤔😂

So we went to B&Q first thing and exchanged the one tin we hadn’t used and we were home before lunch.

I’ve been antsy today…. That weekend thing of not knowing what to do and feeling like I have to do so much in such a short space of time.

If I’m honest, I feel really lazy like I just want to do absolutely nothing.

I never really relax until I give myself permission to do what I actually want to do, rather than all things I feel I should be doing. I decided I really fancied painting some of the cupboards and, you know what, I’ve really enjoyed doing it.

I’ve had a lovely wee afternoon painting while the Gateside Inn next door has a band playing. I’ve been singing along. We hear a band quite clearly when they’re in the pub.

Craig took the dogs out for a walk and for the rest of the afternoon they’ve been playing out in the pouring rain. They don’t seem to notice.

Means I’m still lucky enough to be relishing in the odour of eau-de-wet-dog. 😷

So this is what the kitchen was… (excuse the mess!)

It was very minty! Much prefer Overtly Olive 🫒

There’s still loads more to paint. All the ground level cupboards need doing but that’s enough for today. I can maybe do some after work through the week but let’s not be too hasty to commit. 😆

I’m still feeling choked with the cold but COVID clear so all good.

Well it’s here again, your Sunday evening reminder that we really can take anything the universe throws at us this week.

Remember, above all, to be kind to everyone you meet. A simple smile can brighten someone’s day and make a bad day seem worthwhile.

Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️
