I couldn’t go out and buy the cards that I needed for Mother’s Day the other day, so I made my own. I decided not to post this blog until today in case they saw it 😊.
Due to the decluttering I’ve been doing this year, I was proud of myself for actually being able to find the box of plain cards, the tub full of ribbon and the gold pen. That’s all I needed to make these simple cards before the last post on Friday.
Conservatory and Gutters
Our window cleaner came round to clear out the gutters and clean our conservatory roof this morning. This is what the roof looked like from the bedroom window before the clean…
… and this is the view we have now.
We were really pleased with what he’d done as it was a big job (it hadn’t been done for a while). After that, I spent a bit of time making some space inside the conservatory, as I’m using it for home working at the moment.
The plan was to get things up straight in there before I log back in for work tomorrow morning, but I didn’t get very far. I felt so relaxed and warm with the sun shining through the windows and ended up falling asleep in the armchair.
When I woke up, I moved one of the armchairs into the dining room and put a low table next to my work desk for my books etc. I’ll add some ‘before’ and ‘after’ photos tomorrow once I’ve made some more progress.
Love the cards. Much nicer than store bought.
Thank you so much. It was actually quite fun making them. My girls made me a beautiful one too, which I really wanted to add into my blog but they didn’t want me to 😊
When is Mother’s day, you must send them out early. Your conservatory looks beautiful can’t wait to see pictures.
Thank you. I took the photo on Friday before mailing them, and Mother’s Day was yesterday. We have taken our conservatory for granted a bit over the years not really using it or cleaning it. As I’m now using it for my office I’m learning to appreciate it and that’s why I decided to get the roof cleaned.
Mother’s Day isn’t until May here so I was confused. Well it does look like it would be a nice office to be sure.
