Some order has been restored

For almost a week, the contents of my kitchen were in the front room which meant that it was impossible to get near the computer. Finally last night I was able to start catching up with everyone.

We have spent the last week stripping wallpaper and then painting the kitchen. After we had already started, J said we should have taken a before photo. Never mind, you get the after photo which is a lot better. The kitchen now looks brighter and in the morning when the sun comes up, it has a real glow.I am really pleased with the cupboards. They had been green with red handles but have now been transformed. They are now latte and with chocolate handles. Even my landlord was impressed, which is a relief.The highlight of the week was this fabric postcard I received from Angela. In all the chaos, it brought a little ray of sunshine into the house. It is a spring meadow, a welcome relief from the grey sky we have at the moment.
I haven't done anything on J's jumper. When I have had the time, I didn't have the energy even to pick it up. I am hoping I may do some over the weekend as I am now onto the smallest room of the house, which only requires a couple of coats of paint. As it needs to dry between coats, I may get a chance to knit.

Love the 'new' kitchen! I know the feeling of removing wall paper, no fun. Looks great and I know you will be happy with the change!

I was wondering where you were! It looks so bright and cheerful. Did you do it all yourself?
