Well, yesterday in the south of England it was a cold, cold day, brrr, and it’s May! Hmm! Fortunately I hadn’t put away all my cold weather clothes so I wore leggings plus a mid-length charity shop skirt and a yellow wooly jumper with a long sleeved, roll-neck top underneath. It was not the weather to wear summer clothes!
This is obviously taken in our bedroom and you can see we’ve practically finished the unpacking as we’ve already put up some pictures on the walls. Btw, the bathroom is 90% finished and from Sunday we could actually take a shower in our own home! Phew, what a relief! It was lovely!
Living in Lewes continues to be delightful and as well as going to our first in-person meeting of the local history group, I had my nails done again, today we’re off to the cinema and next week London! Also last week I managed to find a really cool (but not literally) mid-season outfit in a charity shop. I found both in the same charity shop, which is always pleasing.
The first find was the skirt.
It has really interesting material depicting mythical creatures.
Here I am in the bedroom again.
And in our sitting-room.
With these last two moves I down-sized big-time and got rid of so many books, but after staying at Dungeness where there were books just about everywhere I am definitely not reading on my Kindle any more, but reading real books and if I think they’re good, they’ll be added to the bookshelves of which there are more below.
That’s on the other side of the room, mind you I do rather like the artefacts on the shelves, so I think books will start accumulating in the bedroom. I do, btw, have many non-fiction books on a large set of shelves in the second bedroom, which is Mr F’s office. My office space is in our large bedroom and it’s a really good space to work in.
I do like a minimalist desk. And finally did you notice the top, bought at the same time as the skirt? Here is a close up.
I rather like it as the material is soft and quite warm to wear and then there’s little bit of bling to it with the lace and sparkles around the neck. And the price? £3.99 for each item. Quite a bargain I think as both are in very good condition and feel unworn to me.
That’s all for now, but I hope the weather is good where you are and the world is treating you well. You all take care now.
