Time to escape

We're going on holiday this weekend to Madeira, for a week of relaxation.  We chose Madeira because it looks peaceful, which is exactly what we want for a week.

White with a pop of yellow

We are currently redoing our bathroom. I roped in my wonderful Dad who came to stay for four days to help us sort out all the initial daunting prep bits. As I mentioned in my previous post, Bathroom blues, the bath was sinking into the floor. So for the last few months the three-legged bath… Continue reading White with a pop of yellow
