DIY lessons

 No posts for the past 2 days mainly because Ash has taken to waking up in a state of pure confusion at 5.30am.  I manage to get him back to bed with a cup of tea and his tablets, switch the radio on and then leave him to it.  He almost always fall back to sleep but I'm not quite so lucky and by the middle of the afternoon when I write these my brain has stopped functioning.  Usually at this point in the day (4pm) when I have my 'lack of sleep' brain fog I go and lie on the sofa in front of the television and, if I'm lucky, I have a nap with Ash showing amazement at the thought that I might be tired!  You nearly didn't hear from me today either but I've had such a lovely afternoon I wanted to tell you about it.  I've just spent the past couple of hours attaching driftwood effect sticky back plastic onto plain white cupboard doors in my bedroom.  That probably sounds tacky (in more ways than one) but I love how it looks now which is the most important thing as far as I'm concerned and it certainly goes with the beach effect I'm trying to create.  In fact I can't being to tell you how much pleasure I'm getting from that room, it brightens my life and I seem to be spending a huge amount of time in there on a daily basis.  There was a lesson from my efforts however and the lesson was that it's best to measure a second time before you cut.  If you don't you may end up ordering another role of that gorgeous sticky back plastic!  When the new roll has arrived I'll put photos on the facebook page but for now you're just going to have to take my word for it that it's going to look lovely.
