I knew that I would be out of action craftwise for 10 days whilst we had the lounge decorated - what I didn't realize is that they would uncover several problems when they started that would lead to lots more building work, including a new floor and skirting boards - most of our furniture has had to go into storage!
Here we are over 3 weeks later and they still have not got round to painting the walls yet. Luckily I has made my Mothers birthday card in advance, unluckily I hadn't made a Mothers Day card for her. Being optimistic, I hope that everything will return from storage before then!!
