It's been another hectic few days. I'm still playing catch-up after being ill last last week so today was spent writing, editing and collating magazine features, the interviews for which I have done this week after I had to postpone them. I also cut the grass that had resembled a jungle for several weeks and planted a few more plants that my friend Annemarie brought yesterday, having taken cuttings from her own beautiful garden.
My daughter and I spent several happy hours in Ikea the other evening which resulted in another car boot full of candle holders, picture frames and plant pots. Essentials, of course, that we simply could not live without. But I fear my love affair with putting up shelves may be coming to an end. When drilling the tenth, yes tenth of ten holes required to hang a floating shelf yesterday ("Lack" in white if anyone happens to be interested), I drilled into a water pipe that led from the radiator that was sitting in a blindingly obvious yet clearly invisible manner immediately below the said tenth hole. Cue much panic and frantic searching for the stopcock, numerous towels, and an SOS call to my dad who wasn't home.
Fortunately, my house is a new build and work on the development is ongoing so I managed to find three sympathetic builders to come to my rescue. They were absolutely brilliant and patched up the hole before returning with a plumber this morning to complete the job and to do whatever was needed to the boiler to restore our hot water. They even left spare parts for me should it happen again. At least I now know how to repair a holey water pipe.
I'm wearing another new addition to my online accessories boutique. Another wrap bracelet, this time in shades of gold. It is so soft and comfortable and I think very versatile too.
Perfect for summer and holidays as both this and its silver sister work with so many colours.
