Thinning Thursdays - week 4. A month already?

It's that day of the week again. I'm happy to report that I have lost another one and a half pounds. I blame our day trip on Monday. That beer and crisps have a lot to answer for. On the subject of our, as Sandy put it, "Liverpoolian" friends Mike was having a bit of a sort out this afternoon and found something that might be of use.
Out of doors mode.

No need to hang out of bed mode.
For one week only (I think) I also have a creative space or two to share. While Mike was having a sort I finished off the bath panel. I tiled it weeks ago, but hadn't until today got round to grouting the gaps. We hope you like it.

Never mind a night on the tiles, I've spent days on them.
I mentioned four weeks ago that I had bought 50 metres of curtain lining. I also bought 20 metres of curtain fabric to try and make curtains for both of the reception rooms (get her and her posh ways.) The need to make my own becomes evident when you realise that the one room has a ceiling to floor window and measures 2.4m x 2.4m. We did price up made to measure curtains, but I nearly fainted at the thought of spending an arm and a leg just for a bit of privacy. So this is my other creative space of the day:

Yes it's GREEN.


  1. Lorna you never cease to impress. I attempted tiling at our other house. When we got the tiler in he said I had done well considering the walls were 2" out in places but he then asked did we want him to remove tiles I had done and start afresh!

    Can't wait to see the finished curtains - my Auntie Eleanor's favourite colour is green too.

    Oh and I put 300g on!

  2. I am only holding at present weight and when asked by the constabulary (as I did report the theft) what I weighed, I asked, "Can this be used against me?" he just laughed. It was the only humor to be found in that situation.

    Your tiling and grouting is quite charming and I love the combination of colors!

  3. Very crafty! Do you do "homers"? Our bathroom grouting has never been done... although the tiles went up in 2005. Oops.
