I’m not sure how it happened, but after just one week of idle gazing across the room at that little corner of wallpaper – a piece of it came off in my hands this morning. Okay, so it was helped along the way by (subconciously) eager finger?! Anyway, it’s done now, that little trial bit round the patio doors is off, and the paint is bought … the rest is going to have to follow…

Question is do I go to bed now praying for greyness and rain or blue skies and sunshine (so that I can avoid having to do it on the grounds that the weather is far too nice…)?
