Well, it’s raining!
It’s the start of the summer holidays here and nothing much has changed to our life. My youngest got 3 days of school in the final 3 weeks of term and I was in a couple of days a week for a month. It was all a bit strange, but it did add a touch of variety to the days.
We’ve done SO many projects around the house, including removing a lot of nasty carpeting and replacing it with wood flooring. One of the main items we’ve tried this time with some REALLY great success is using eco friendly chalk wall paints. We used a couple of brands; Annie Sloan and Earthborn. Both are slightly more expensive than Dulux or such but actually they go on so well, that you get away with less to cover. Really impressed. I only wish we’d been on our eco journey much earlier when the kids were little as we’d have used this more around the house, less fumes, less chemicals.
We have also done some revamping around the garden and made the living space so much better and more usable. Of course it’s raining now – did I mention that?
