The caravan arrived yesterday - Surfer Boy took the day off to go and pick it up and then drove past my shop so I could see it - hilarious.
When I got home from work he had already started working on it - it was absolutely filthy and unfortunately smells rather strongly of dog! Not my favourite aroma.
The poor girl is in a sorry state but I noticed there were measurements for sheets of ply on the dining table this morning so I'm tipping that by the end of the weekend she will have at least one spanking new panel. I'll have to make sure I take lots of photos of her transformation.
I have to make a decision as to whether I cover over the current (original but gross and beyond saving) upholstery or if I splurge and get the seats recovered. I'm leaning towards the latter as I don't think that dog wee smell is ever going to leave if I don't. I've already removed the hideous curtains and binned them - tempted to make new ones tonight but think I should wait until everything is sparkling again.
So much to do - so fun. Grab a pair of gloves, some Spray & Wipe and join us for a weekend of scrubbing....

Elizabeth Taylor was an icon in the truest sense of the word long before she passed away yesterday at the age of 79.

I think this is my favourite photo of Liz - candid, relaxed and relishing the sun on her face. Perfect.

I got a present today - Surfer Boy went off to a friend's 40th and came home with a massive box of books for me. I now have over 50 Fantasty titles to work my way through! My fairy god-father is downsizing and knowing we share authors in common, packed up his stash and has gifted it to me.
There is volume after volume of David Eddings, Stephen Donaldson, Robin Hobb, Terry Pratchett...... In fact I think I now own the entire David Eddings and Leigh Eddings back catalogue. I'm a bit beside myself and don't know where to begin.
Surfer Boy was less amused with every book I pulled out - even I don't know where I'm going to put them all.
I now have another pile of books that I have doubled up on so if you see anything you want let me know. I'm off to start reading....
