The week before last we had our windows and front door replaced. The workmen were quick and efficient and left no mess but it was like an invasion :) I am used to a quiet home all day and I like it like that - lol!
So this week I have relished the quiet and started a thorough deep clean of the house and started decorating too! Slowly, slowly this little train (see my last post - lol!) has painted the downstairs loo. I have to say I thought at one point I had died and certainly not gone to heaven - lol - it was such hard work and to think in pre-train days it would have taken me no time and I'd have just carried on going til tea time instead of having to have a lie down after!!!!!!
And when this train has been idling in the sidings I have been reading The Little House books. I had only read a couple before - usually read at the caravan where I sip tea from a tin mug and feel like a pioneer myself :)
But I treated myself to more titles in the series as well as a biography and some of Laura's articles and essays.
Oh they are bliss and even inspired me to clear out and re-organise the pantry - can't be bad!
