Guess what...I'm wallpapering...in the kitchen!!
The paint used in April was not right, although it did need to be lighter there.
I've picked up a bargain in paper, tiles, MDF windowsills for shelves in the shallow cupboard and on one wall.
The idea is to have a tidy,sorted,kitchen and storecupboards. if a son,or two,will be coming to house-sit, they have to be able to find things,and have room to use them!
Meanwhile the gales are roaring outside, and North West Scotland has had up to 95 mm of rain in a couple of hours. Luckily we haven't had quite that much, but there are plenty of flooded fields around here.
We haven't been able to finish the lawns we've promised to do...which has given us a little more time..but on the other hand getting work done in our own garden has been a problem! Garlic is in, but the beans and onion sets still await dry weather...which we are promised tomorrow.
We're working on keeping the car legal before we go, if not completely mended..this is taking even more time out of each day.
Arrangements have been made for our camper car for our first two months of travel, internal flights bought....
Its beginning to feel real....
