Tuesday 27 March 2018
I have not been at my best the past 24 hours and after plodding through the day, I've just sat on the sofa covered in quilts and cats, shivering, and wanting to just hold my plate of fish'n'chips (K was "cooking") as it was warm, rather than eating what it held. Anyway, 2 Panadol and a few cat cuddles later and I have just thrown off the covers but Ghengis is still snuggled up to me, purring. Alfie, having been encouraged to leave his perch on my shoulder (as I told him, he made a very good window - NOT!) has been on the sofa back for an hour now.
Anyway, I passed the day drinking water and just painted the day away. I did the other kitchen door (into the hall), both sides, and then another coat down on the bathroom door in what was mum's flat. Then, as I was still upright, I masked up and did the bay window frames. Bear in mind everything took about three coats, so that is another paint I shan't buy again! Now I just have the window frame over the sink to do. So, progress. I was doing fine until I helped K make up the bed and then I felt really quite unwell and shaky, so have been resting up ever since.
A very blurry photo of the little car boot bargain from Sunday. The mahogany base has polished up a treat and the old rotten fabric torn off and burnt, and I have a layer of cotton quilt batting stapled into place to provide a base for the black and white fabric (left over from the sewing box). Hopefully I will do that tomorrow.
Finally, a view from my walk on Sunday (when we had SUNSHINE!) - you can see why people move to Wales . . .
The view from the cottage . . . Bannau Sir Gar (Black Mountain) again . . .
