Hello lovelies, just a quick one from me today with last week’s happies (bit late, sorry!):
1. Renovations are underway
So, I hinted at this last week – we’ve got the builders in to renovate the bit of the house attached to the kitchen. Currently a downstairs cloakroom (not that you would ever want to use it, yuk!) and big cupboard, it’s going to be a nice new downstairs cloakroom and proper utility room! I am beyond excited. So far the work is going well.
2. The Affordable Art Fair
On Saturday, The Bert and I went to the Affordable Art Fair in Bristol. Clutching vouchers that The Bert’s sister had given us for our wedding present, we turned up not knowing what to expect. What we got was the most fantastic day out! Loads of art to look at: sculpture, mixed media, oils, acrylic paintings, wire models, bronze models, ceramics… you name it! There was an education zone for the children to have a go at screen printing (luckily big kids were allowed too! Our efforts turned out pretty well – I did the wave, The Bert did the fish), and a cafe and a lovely vibrant atmosphere. We couldn’t believe how busy it was!
Plus we found the most beautiful painting to spend our vouchers on…
…an original acrylic on canvas of the seascape and headland from Beer, Devon. This picture jumped out at us, and when we found out it was of Beer, a place we have visited several times, it was just meant to be. Not sure where we’ll hang it yet, we’ve been carrying it around the house to find the best spot!
3. Lunch with a view
We tried a new cafe in town on Sunday for lunch – had the most lovely view of the church. The food was good, the setting was lovely. I think it’s our new favourite!
4. The final curtain…
…pole. Bit of DIY on Sunday – I’m so happy to have the final curtain up and in place!
Sorry for such a fleeting one today, and general absence from blogland. I’m finding with the builders here, and desperately trying to get my blanket finished for the weekend, I’ve not got much spare time for writing. Which is a shame as I could have done a whole post on the Art Fair alone! and I’ve still not told you about our Easter holiday!
Anyway, have a happy week,
