It’s funny how just a few days of sunshine make all the difference to how you feel, isn’t it? The sun this weekend has been a welcome relief to all the gloom of recent months. I hadn’t intended on starting to spring cleaning, but with we had planned to decorate the hall so whichever way you look at it, it was time to get on with some of those indoor jobs. When the sun shines, it doesn’t seem to matter what you’re doing, as long as the sun shines! One thing I did do was buy some more spring flowers. You can never have too many flowers & they help brighten the house on the days when the clouds cover the sun.


As my OH was poorly, we’ve put off redecorating the hall until next weekend. So instead I started Spring cleaning. The biggest change came from washing the net curtains. We only have 2 – one in the bathroom & one in my study. Now, I’m not usually a fan of spring cleaning, especially as these nets are hand-wash only but the one for my study wasn’t this colour when I washed it! It sits in front of a draughty window so had caught a lot of dust. Now it’s washed, ironed & rehung, it’s brought a real brightness to my study, which is always a good thing!

PS – Can you tell I’m on Vine?! I love making those little 6 second videos. They’re a great way to capture a moment in time where a photo might not do it justice, like fresh washing blowing on the line in the sun.
