No Real Direction

I don't really know what to do with this space of mine in the internet world.

I post on FB and I post on Twitter and I don't seem to make time to post here.

I think that part of it is because I am not sure who, if anyone, actually reads this blog.

I wanted to post my DIY exploits but then I worried about who was reading them and whether I wanted possibly complete strangers seeing into my home!!!!

So I am a lost cause, no real direction and not really sure if it worth while keeping this going.

Of course, I could change it totally, but what too?!

I feel the need to get things out of my head so I have decided to start using this as my ranting place.

It doesn't bother me that not many people will read it, I just feel the need to empty my head so that I can clear space for the important stuff.

I am also hoping to get some focus back and just feel calmer and more peaceful.

Sometimes it will just read as me having a jolly good moan, but it is good to get it out there.

It's been years since I have written daily but I think it will be very therapeutic.

A fellow blogger does a day summary of various categories and I asked if I could utilise that idea.

I have thought about my daily summary which will appear at the end of my posts like so....

Today's summary.

TV - Bedlam
Tea - 6 cups
Coffee - 4 cups
Food - lots of chocolate Halloween treats, vegetable lattice slice, fish with new potatos and veg, slow roasted tomato soup.
Grumpy level - medium to high. It was a bad work day.
Achieved - resolving the bad work day.

Sealed fireplace surround.

I removed the frame and started from scratch.

Now the frame is level with the wall.

I plan to paper to the edge and put a mdf frame around it.

I am very chuffed with my work tonight.

Fireplace surround.

The fireplace before I attempt to tidy it up.


I am intending to have this wallpaper on my chimney breast.

I feel in love with the sample, so I have ordered it ready for action!

I just hope that I am good at wallpaper hanging.

Project Lounge.

The next DIY project is my lounge.

I am armed with a steamer wallpaper stripper.

I love it and it was worth every penny.

I have started stripping.

I also found this note written on the wall.
