Charity shop shopping 

Hello Dear Reader,

We took time out from painting the house and went to the charity shop that’s only open on Wednesday and Saturdays. I bought a couple of bedside cupboards for one of the spare bedrooms. We called into a DIY shop on the way home and bought some light fittings. We’ll get those up as soon as we can. I also bought some pictures of apples and pears, funnily enough, for the stairs. You might get why that’s funny, it’s a British thing so you might not. 

I got them scrubbed down with sugar soap and sanded down before the rain started. We had to bring them indoors and I got a coat of paint on them and I’ll finish them tomorrow. We’re pushing through any desire to jack it all in and head down the pub and we’ll just keep going on this leg of the renovations. It will be worth it in the end. We remind ourselves that we are not builders and it takes a long time for us to do the work.

There’s an end in sight.

We shared a bottle of rosé and watched reruns of old Glastonbury concerts!

We will do this.

Until tomorrow,

Love Froogs xxxx
