Following on from this post , I can tell you that the wallpaper poster of my photo arrived more than a week ago. I haven't had the guts to look at it yet, you know, once I unwrap it, I might have some difficulty to safely put it back into the cardboard cylinder.
I made a start at clearing our bedroom. It almost feels like moving house and I am suffering from 'déjà-vu'.
Luckily, this time the move is just across the landing, to the guestroom. Or Irma's Room, as I like to call it. Irma, my mum, has stayed in that room more often and longer than anyone else.
In normal circumstances the guestroom looks something like this :
Then the room got hit by a bomb :
I tried to squeeze as much furniture as possible from the master into the guestroom. Where else would I put it ? Don't fancy bringing everything downstairs, only to bring it back up again in a few weeks time (ok, probably a month).
We brought the two mattresses (yes, 2) from our bed and dumped them on top of the resident mattress.
Meanwhile in the main bedroom, the removal of (too much) stuff is still going on.
I'm ever so slightly embarrassed about the state of the carpet. But not enough to withhold the photo from you. Haha ! Mum ! Look away, now.
As the week progresses, I will update the blog with more of this, if you don't mind.
Till next time.
La Chatte Gitane (or The Gypsy Cat) was the name we chose for our cottage in France. We chose it while on the road, moving home, from Ireland to France with 2 dogs and 7 cats in the car.
This blog began its insignificant life as a recipe book for friends and family who would ask me repeatedly for a recipe of this, that and the other.
Since then it has taken many different directions, like gypsies tend to do. Sometimes making a U-turn and revisiting familiar roads and taking a break when necessary.
You'll find recipes here, but also musings about the places we've called home, the gardens that we've established, not always successfully, the homes we've improved and the environments we've lived in. Currently, that is back in Ireland.
