Starting to change to summer......

While the world is pondering the Greek elections, contagion, the possible demise of the euro, the EU and a Lehman style global meltdown, I think being an ostrich, switching off the news and forgetting the word "contagion" and the fact that the UK economic masters are preparing for the Worst Case Scenario, and eating chocolate while one sings loudly, is in order. That is a ridiculously long sentence. I may need to do some editing. Essentially, what I said is that eating chocolate is in order. The rest is only going to depress you so forget it and reach for the chocolate. You may not be able to afford it tomorrow.

And since when have countries (nouns) become adjectives? The GREEK elections. Not the Greece elections.

I am in the process of changing the house to summer. Yes, I know I declare summer on 1 June, but it is lost. Summer. So I waited. And this morning, I thought that maybe if I make my house summery, then it will show up. One lives in hope.

So, instead of mountaineering over the deck and trying to unearth last summer's decorations, cushion covers etc, I thought we would go red white and blue, seeing that we are patriotic and all that, and Wimbledon is not far off and the football is on as I speak. So I bought a meter of fabric, and today, I zapped up 3 cushion covers. Then I mislaid all the cream ones somewhere ( read on the deck) so I found some cream fabric and made another one. Then I was still short of matching covers, so I found some navy fabric - oh, the stash is coming into its own right now - so we now have 3 more made. I have still got to finish the ripple, but that is nearly done. The room, however, looks dead. It needs something. I know that somewhere in this house, there are little lighthouses and seagulls but can I find them? No.

So maybe it will all change to something else tomorrow.

The kitchen-family room is bright rainbow colours. That is fine and I love the way it looks. The brighter the better.

Hang on, I am going to investigate Mother's cupboard. There may be a bird up there. I am back. Nothing. Hmmm. I will have to think about this. And see what it looks like in the light of day.


So the Greeks have opted to stay in the Euro zone. I suspect that this is just the beginning. Now where did I hide that chocolate............

When John and I were out shopping for his new belt yesterday, we found a bar of chocolate in a plain wrapper except for the words "Emergency Chocolate." Perhaps I should have bought a bar.

Your home always looks beautiful and cozy. I love the white and wish my sofa and chairs were brighter. Perhaps I can make them some painter's cloth slipcovers. Why do you always have to make me think?

Wish I could send you some chocolate. Always have some lying around somewhere. I love the cushions though we could never do a white sofa/couch/whatever. Too much mechanical grease.

Have a wonderful day.
