Well, I had entertained the thought of blogging a little bit more often, but I guess that thought left the brain almost as quickly as it entered. Where did the past few weeks go? Well, here are the few pics I meant to post 3 weeks ago. Living/lounge painting done (2 coats).
We are adding a picture rail to visually lower the high ceilings and make the room appear wider than it is. The rail and above will be white.
Mr CH decided to try that new-fangled drop-sheet/masking tape stuff to tape off the walls so we could spray the ceilings two coats of white. He started taping while I was off feeding kids (who think pkt noodles are food!)
I came back to discarded sheets and him spitting chips! Seems this stuff doesn't like sticking to gloss walls. No sooner do you get around the room when it starts dropping off the walls and sticking to the floor. Sticks well to a dirty floor.
Got it sorted in the end!
Taping a line for the picture rail. We decided to leave the living/lounge light position where it was, to one side (cos it was one less thing to do!).
Before I go, do you like this plant (two weeks ago in the sun)
Today in the rain -tetradenia riparia , iboza riparia or the misty plume bush. An awkwardly growing small shrub, tends to lean towards the sun and smells strongly a bit like Chinese five spice, pretty flowers though. An hallucinogenic herb apparently (if you smoke it!). This one has been in the ground about two years and is 1.5 mts tall.
Until next time....
