The conservatory decorated




Yesterday I forgot about school preparation, marking, etc and decorated my piece de resistance - the conservatory. The problem now is that, since the builders have been in, what is left of the garden is a bit of a mess, but I think it's going to have to stay that way until I have time to do something about it. Here are a couple of photos of it, taken yesterday after I had finished. And yes, my painting skills have improved somewhat since I tackled the ground floor of the house last year. :)

  1. Hey, that looks brilliant! A lovely addition to your home space. Well done to you and to Keith for pushing the boat out to achieve this little domestic dream.... As I am under a lot of stress at present re exam results, I may be one of your first "clients" in the conservatory! Please be gentle with me Mrs Whiplash!

  2. Stress re exam results? I can identify with that, having a class of 30 of which of a third have a writing level of W. I think we might have to counsel each other!

  3. Lovely, Jenny! So bright and cheerful with all those windows. I was wondering if it might be a bit difficult to heat in the winter, but I don't suppose your winters are as nasty as ours.
    Sorry about the stress levels at work. The lady I'm seeing is about to begin a career in teaching. She's already taught me a thing or two. LOL!

  6. Hi Jenny.
    Wow - very posh Jenny, I like it, it will get even better once you have ‘stamped’ your personality on it.

    Is your house north, south face looking, I am thinking of Summer sunshine - [OK I know what sunshine?].

    I hope you spend many happy hours in there, relaxing.
