Starting to change to summer......
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............
