Dreaded decorator!

He’s such a nice man really! It’s just I feel sick that there will be a stranger in the house today…I don’t know why, it just happens…I suppose it’s about people invading one’s private space that feels unsettling! However, we moved quite a lot of small furniture and ornaments last night, so the living room is ready to have it’s ceiling papered and I am skulking in my room with my computer, music, kindle and cups of tea! I will issue forth to make sandwiches and drinks for DH and the crew at intervals throughout the day….the smell of paint will be nauseating too and the flats next door have ordered the tree surgeons, so all in all, it’s going to be a noisy day. Now I know why people wear ear protectors!!! Could do with a gas mask as well!

Moan, moan, moan…let’s look on the bright side of things. My living room will be lovely and fresh after all the plastering, replacement windows, etc have been done….only one more big clean after the decorator has finished and things will be back to normal again, with new carpet being laid soon. All the big, bad, dirty jobs have been done now, so the rest won’t take so long or cause such a mess! I have some of Andrew Johnson’s excellent recordings, so I’ll probably relax with one of those later:)

Here are a few photos of our renovations both inside and in the garden over the past few years……
