The tree is up and the light's have been switched on..

And they worked!  Ha! Some are very old indeed.. No curtains as yet and my second hand granny chairs from the Heart Foundation charity shop need to be re-covered but hey, old woolen blankets do the trick for the time being. Cosy.

My husband has been stripping....

The lounge floor, he is far too old to strip.. 
Professionally that is.. Ha..ha..ha!
 Now what treatment to give it? Varnish? Wax? It is very yellow/orange at the moment so might have to put my thinking cap on.

Angels watch over me please..

Just changing some angels giving them a little gold leaf.. Here they are drying on an old kitchen cake rack.

I've done something awful to my back, this afternoon I went to the local cottage hospital in Falmouth for Xrays.. Fun, fun fun, couldn't get my socks or boots off let alone my leggings then the indignity of trying to get up onto the Xray table with one of those dresses on with the giant slit up the back... Fun, fun fun.. Got to laugh, pain killers are working...
