I have not forgotten you even though it has been nearly 4 weeks since my last post.
After a very wet autumn our weather suddenly turned dry and cold as winter officially began here at the beginning of June. It somehow made our planned holiday very appealing. We had 9 days in north Queensland where the daytime temperatures ranged from about 26C up to 32C. It was a great opportunity to thaw out. I am still adding to the posts on my holiday blog but you can pop over here to read all about it.
We came back with renewed enthusiasm to tackle some jobs around the house. It is really a bit like spring-cleaning in winter. GMan has scrubbed all of the skirting boards, architraves and doors in the lounge/dining area and the office/library.
A bit of decluttering and rearranging of furniture ensued. One thing certainly leads to another.
Bookshelf from the lounge to the office.
Sideboard from the front lobby to the lounge.
A ‘new’ glass fronted cabinet for the lobby. I picked this bargain up on Marketplace.
Scrubbing was not enough for the front lobby so it received a fresh coat of paint.
There is more painting and rearranging in progress. More photos to come.
