So we've started making some house progress. Alongside having nearly every different tradesperson round to quote for everything from new locks, pest control, tree surgery, plumbing to electrics, we've started the refurb on the master bedroom.
It's bye bye bucolic Georgians picnicking on toile de joie wallpaper and massive built in wardrobes. Finds today include some 1990s porn mags, and vine and grape plaster friezes on top of the wardrobe. Tom and Jon got the wardrobes out, and started cutting the plasterboard to re board the old fireplace. (Thanks Jon!) I have been stripping wallpaper. Any Southampton friends who are free on Sunday night and fancy a bit of stripping, you'd be very welcome and we'll rustle up some food and beverages as a thank you.
I snuck out mid afternoon to get my hair dyed baylayage style in preparation for Eleanor's wedding by the lovely Claire of Uptown Curls. This great do cost me £45 for colour wash and blowdry. Very impressed, she always does exactly what I ask for, and treats you like the Queen. Love her!
