People are starting to ask to see more of my renovation. I have to tell the truth. There isn't much progress at all. Yes I need to photograph my book page hallway properly but I'm waiting on a light and a piece of art for the space. Perhaps I'll have a half way done photo shoot this weekend if the light is OK. But the real truth why there is not much action here? No money. Some of you will remember that I took 6 months off from work due to ill health. This was mostly leave without pay. Hence the grinding halt to work around here. It's amazing what two salaries do for a house renovation. Full steam ahead. With one? Sputter sputter klunk stop. The good news is that I am much much better health wise. The bad news is that because I feel so good and the coffers are empty I shall be returning to work in about a month. Yeah! Money! Boo! Back to work for the government. The fun thing will be that I will now have 3 jobs. Public servant, blogger and soon to be e-retailer. Soon I promise. Oooh you should have seen the linen sheets that came in today. And as for the jewellery we just ordered! If edgy and large ring your bells you'll love it.
Slowly working on my painting. I'll have to speed up. I only have a few weeks left. What is it? Look closely. It's a portrait of Puki my parrot. I'm using a palette knife now to add his plumage and let some of the background show through. That's the plan anyway. Better go. I have some patterns to work out for embroideries we are having done in Kashmir for the website. Bye!
