I've just got back from York. The Viking Festival was on up there to coincide with half term and I'm well and truly Vikinged out.
I've been lying awake at night planning just how I can turn scaffolding boards into work tops and if I can join planks of wood without use of a biscuit cutter. (The tool, not the culinary device.) It would be so excellent if I had a dad, or a father in law or a brother in law with all the big scary expensive tools that I could learn to use. But everyone is too far away. I wonder how much training you get from a tool hire centre. Perhaps if I put on a seriously dizzy blonde act they would have to instruct me for a good while or fail their health and safety requirements.
Anyhow, I'll figure something out...my inner master carpenter wants to build stuff. The only thing getting in the way is that I have no idea of the right way to do things. Small obstacle really.
Here's a discovery I made recently that I think you might like. I saw one of these on ebay...
Isn't it just the sweetest idea? With our minging original 1960's bathroom well past its use by date, I'm always thinking of how we can add gorgeousness without breaking the bank.
I excitedly showed it to my husband. ''Yeah, nice but there's no storage. We need storage,'' he said.
''But if you have this you'll just smile every time you go in the bathroom and surely that's more important than storage,'' I said.
He gave me a curious look. Might have to work on him some more...
