Wading through the boxes

Painting has slowed down a bit this week with unpacking and sorting being the order of the day instead, we were wading through the boxes and boxes of stuff in the front room and we need to make space for more decorating over the weekend.  It's a nice feeling to see things that were packed away weeks ago, especially my books, I miss my books when we are apart !!

In a break whilst walking the dogs outside for some fresh air I decided to explore the little rickety old shed next to my greenhouse, it will be used for storing all the paraphernalia involved with planting and potting up to keep the greenhouse purely for growing so I can make the maximum use of the space.

It has this wonderful old wallpaper on one of the walls, how lovely that someone loved their shed enough way back in the 50s to wallpaper the inside, and how even more lovely that no-one since has peeled the paper off, it's staying for sure, a lovely reminder of gardeners long gone.

Oh well, back to work, another box of books is calling me from the front room.

  1. that wallpaper is wonderful and I agree don't get rid of it.

    It's always a bit like Christmas when it comes to unpacking boxes.

    Not that you need it.

  4. We moved 4 years ago and it's amazing how much "stuff" one has!! I'm a reader so I understand about "books" :). Getting settled is a long, slow process sometimes, but it's so nice to see one's things in a new house and in a new place.

    Try not to get too stressed out :)
