we're home

we look a bit worn out here but have just climbed up hundreds of steps.

the kids even managed to get in the sea

We are back from our hols and have had a lovely time at the Algarve, the weather was nice, i even coped ok with the flight bit and sat near the window coming home.We stayed in a lovely appartment which was very nice and had everything close by with just a short walk down to the beach, my sister in law owns it which was lucky for us so if anyone fancies renting it i can fully recomend it!
We are all a bit sad to be back home now though and its so cold.

my new doors

For the past week or so we have been having a bit of a change around in the kitchen and its finally finished, well almost, the pics are a bit crap because its a bit dark in the kitchen first thing.

they lead into my conservatory which has had a lick of paint in this lovely shade of green

last night i started a ripple cushion which Lucy at attic 24 has posted a great tutorial for

in this last pic if you look close can you see it?? Dirty paw prints going down my newly painted cream wall! The cat has climbed in thropught the window and then she walks along the top window and climbs down the wall.
