Last week turned out to be quite a busy week. Brecon for grocery shopping and taking shoes to the cobblers. Hay-on-Wye for the market on Thursday and then on Friday, an outing to Leominster as now we are in Powys, that was the nearest B&Q, and we wanted to get paint sample chips and chose a paint for our bedroom (one mixed.) We have a Jewson's here in town, but that's no good unless you want bucketfuls of white emulsion.
We chose the same blue (Midwinter Solstice I think it's called) that we had in our bedroom in our last home, as it was a lovely colour, and came out with handfuls of paint chips for Tam's bedroom and the Library. The latter is going to be a deep pink (it will look better than it sounds). It's a room which doesn't get a great deal of light - the only dark room in the house - so will look warm and cosy. Tam wants a very pale pink in her bedroom - not baby pink, far more subtle than that. She is still deciding exactly which shade. We also got a new bristly doormat to replace the one which never recovered from being tramped on by wet and muddy feet when we moved in. Any passing resemblance to a patchwork quilt did not influence my choice in any way. (No, really!)
In the car park was this beautiful white Cherry tree. So pretty.
19th C Irish Wrought Iron D?? Hearth Toaster (£110).
A painting of Church Street Ledbury, where we were recently.
I can imagine this took some hauling up to be put in place on the front of the roof of a Georgian building in the town . . .
It was market day but all we bought was a piece of cheese.
