The landing window needed some curtains to finish off the decorating/revamping project. Whilst I have plenty of spare curtains we have never had a grey theme. I decided to keep my eyes peeled, knowing something would come up......and they did.
On Saturday we took Jon's mum shopping in Guisborough, so I popped into the charity shops and found exactly what I was looking for. Lined and ironed...£3.50.
On Sunday I bought the curtain pole and Jon fixed it onto the wooden plinth. We adapted the brackets so there wasn't a gap between the curtains and the wall.
The size of the curtains was spot on too!
The snug carpet has been down since May 2011. Remember this?
We decided we needed to change it and have been out and sorted one today.......a bit of a change of colour!
Watch this space!

Last Wednesday, for no apparent reason I felt very lethargic and quite low. On Thursday I was craving for a chip butty with lots of butter and soft white bread. I should have known I was going down with a cold.
By Thursday night I knew, so on Friday had a good long session on the beach with Bing and dosed myself up with Day Nurse and went to bed where I slept for most of the day. Every 4 hours I would take my tablets, as stated on the packet.
Jon and I, together with a group of neighbours were all going out for a meal, so I wanted to feel my best.
The meal was a great disappointment and we didn't stay late.
Saturday saw me up early as I was marshalling for the Great Santa Run, raising funds for a local hospice.
The fresh air did wonders and I really enjoyed the day. You can read about it here,
On Sunday we had a great walk on the beach - I definitely think the outdoors is the place to be when unwell!
On Monday I was looking through some cookery books and came across on of my all time favourite snacks. Tinned Mackerel on Toast. For the first time in nearly a week I had a genuine appetite and have had 3 similar meals since.
I was so looking forward to eating it I just remembered to take a photo before I finished off the lot!
Perfect comfort food......what's yours?
