Last week I had a wonderful surprise gift sent to me from Colette over at http://poppycottage18.blogspot.com. I was sent this lovely corsage pin which Colette made with her own fair hands. Thank you so much Colette I love it and it totally lifted my day, x
The other delivery I had was my new doors! - YIPPEE!
I've had it in mind to have these doors for the last seven years - yes, seven years!
You see, when I moved into my house some of the internal doors were missing and the loo door was a dirty plastic concertina style thing that kept getting stuck every time I wanted to leave or enter the room, so one day in a fit of door rage I ripped the thing out leaving me with no loo door for the next seven years. Which sounds worse than it is. It just means that when I have visitors they have to announce that they are off for a pee to warn everyone not to go up the stairs to avoid getting a surprise - if you know what I mean!
Anyway, the doors became less of a priority as time moved on and other jobs needed to be done but finally I was in a position to place my order...that was in April and I've been waiting for them to arrive ever since. Thursday the call came through and a voice said 'your doors will be with you in 2 hours' - and they were.
I'm so pleased with them they're solid wood and very heavy, I tried to move them the other day and nearly ruptured something! I've had etched glass with little stars all over it put in them which finishes them off nicely. I just have to wait for payday now to have them hung, crikey it's always a waiting game when your skint!
