I’ve been busy decorating, I’ve set myself a bit of a deadline, I’ve invited the neighbours round for a bit of a do, its in a good cause. The British Heart Foundation is a charity close to our own hearts, especially in memory of Daz H.
The invites have gone out.
But it does mean there is no time for dawdling, but more haste can mean less speed: this is an old house, no wall is true, no plaster smooth, (I did succumb to a little plaster envy the other day) exposed oak beams may brim with ancient character but they are a fiddle to decorate around. Here is one on the landing.
And this is my favourite beam, in the lounge, I love its rough and ready, vernacular style and wonder why a load bearing beam was placed over a window opening?
One day we’ll find out how old they are.
I was so busy at the weekend,I forgot about the The Big Garden Bird Watch.
Take a look at these birdy videos, mesmerising I really want to get to see a murmeration of starlings.
