A Fresh Start . . .

How do I begin my first blogging entry? (thats what I'm thinking as I sit here completely clueless!)

Well, I guess I begin with a bit of a background...

We (hub, me and daughter 7) first moved into this home 2 years ago, it was a doer-uper of course. We immediately went for the kitchen (I'll post before and afters real soon, promise) it was small, but we did what we could with what we had. I personally love the kitchen now, there's still a bit more to do (do not look too closely at one window), and I really enjoy cooking in there on weekends - looking out the window at all the greenery!

Next we (as in not me) ripped up cork tiles, black glue and all, carpet, scalloped wood panelling (not paintable at all by the way), and removed doors, architraves, old blinds and curtains - the list goes on and on. Needless to say we had a rather interesting first 6-8 months in this house. I think I'd better post a couple of example pics now.

So, I will leave it there for now - while I go and organise a few photos of the house to give you a better idea of what I'm talking about.

Be back real soon!!

(yay! red wine friday!! a celebratory tipple for my first blog entry? just one of course - I'm really a coffee lover deep down! although you will laugh when you see the size of our new wine glasses - just one would likely fit half a bottle :) )
