Finding these in the garden are a wonderful tasty present. I love these long warm evenings and having time to enjoy the outdoors. We finished doing the move this weekend. We are finally in our new home!

Personality types

It is funny how some animals are really show offs

Others are shy. And others are in between.
Just like people.

For a few minutes

Can you spot the swimmer? 
I wish I could be him for a few minutes. 
In fact, if I close my eyes and think about it carefully, I am him.

Holidays abroad

We have no plans for a holiday this year, but I hope we can escape for a few days to Spain. 
A few days of laziness, nature and tasty food. 
Have you gone away already? Where have you gone or going to?

Healthy colours

I have been unwell for the last few days with bad headaches and a tummy bug. 
The timing is really bad. We are moving to our new home this weekend. 
I am super excited, but just wished I had more energy.
I selected this photograph because bright colours always make everything better.

I admit the quality of these photos is not great and that one can't really appreciate how white the walls are now, but I hope you can see the difference on the before and after.

For home DIY and improvement, neatness and white, have a look at Chez Larsson. I spent a lot of time looking at it!

Test post with phone

My nieces came to visit over Easter and I took this photo with the phone. I am also bloging with the phone. This is a test.

Zebra design in the larder

I can't tell you how happy I am that now we have a usable kitchen. 
This is the larder. 
The first photograph shows it as I found it, with old paper on top of the shelves, full of dust and dirt. I removed the paper and cleaned underneath. There was this blue lino and wood. I painted inside the walls, varnished the wood and covered the old lino with sticky fabric ( I am sure it has a name, but I don't know it). I wouldn't normally go for zebra design, but there wasn't much to choose from, and since it is temporary I thought I might as well go for something outrageous and fun. 
Well, maybe I should do something outrageous and fun when we design our new kitchen, rather than going for a plain classic style....what do you think?

To be fit for the job

When you do this dozens of times a day, and for days and days, you become quite more flexible and achy. 
I have never felt more tired, fit and satisfied. 
We have had some help this weekend. 
Thanks a million! 
This means less bends and stretches for us!

A clean space

R has done a magnificent job with the kitchen floor.
I have been painting inside the larder today.
We finally feel we are in a clean space. 
But it has taken so many hours!
Now I go to sleep
Any plans for this weekend?

Some days I am just plain tired and cannot seem to do much work on the house. 
And so, I potter around and take photos.

The kitchen is coming along. 
Many hours of hard work cleaning decades of dirt and making it look decent through coats of paint and new lino floor - all temporary until we can get a brand new kitchen.
