The sitting room is finally stripped of all the awful wallpaper. Although in hindsight it was a much better look than the navy blue and lime green (I kid ye not) that lies beneath.

It was a hellish job and I’m awfully glad it’s over. Photos to follow once I’ve worked out just how the camera works. (I know, I know…’s the 21st century and I’m such a luddite. It’s a work in progress.)

The good news is that after my lunchtime Italian class I’ll be spending the afternoon fillering the holes so that tomorrow I can sand and cove and then we’re ready to decorate.

I feel a big, fat, hairy HURRAH coming on for that.
