Ice cream...

Good morning girls

Well where has this last week gone??

After Alexa having a bad dose of chickenpox Dylan managed to catch it too then Alexa got conjunctivitus in both eyes so grandma has been babysitting "two poorly little sausages"and when the children are here they claim my laptop!!!


Feast your eyes on this gorgeous fabric!!!!

A while ago I did a swap with the lovely Betty from Mrs Yappy Dog and she made me some bunting out of this yummy ice cream fabric and I told Betty how much I loved it and so, Betty, the lovely lady that she, is sent me this huge piece of fabric.

I snipped off the edge piece to make a tray cloth and I put two little snippets in this lovely cream frame

and the rest made a lovely cloth for the table, thanks Betty.

Mr Lucey was busy painting the kitchen last weekend and we had a bit of a change around, the fridge freezer was opposite the door before and it seemed to cut the room in half and block out a bit of the light so we moved it into the corner

and brought the table and chairs up a bit and moved the clock

it gives us a lot more space and is much lighter

this is where the fridge was before, and the rest of the kitchen

the two end walls are painted in a silvery grey and the other two are white.

The past few weekends Mr Lucey has painted the en-suite and the cloakroom and the bathroom and changed the taps and fitted a new bath panel and toilet seats (I like to keep him busy!!)

So that's a few more jobs ticked off the "to do" list but it doesn't seem to be getting any shorter as I keep thinking of things to add on!!

Ooooohhhhh yesterday I had a lovely day out, and my button swap parcel arrived,

I'll have to keep you guessing what was inside for a little while longer as I have to work today with having yesterday off, but as you'll see it was soooo worth it!!

Love Lucey xx
