Escape from Domestic Mess

I hadn’t really intended to escape from our ‘bare” house still having the timber floors finished, but we did have a couple of days in Dubbo on the weekend for the District 9670 Rotary Changeover. The days were crisp and the nights were vey cold but it was lovely to see the country look so fresh and green after the rain. And it was great to escape from the house- concrete floors and sparse furniture.

We do have some progress but things still are not looking good for my mother’s arrival next Wednesday. We do now have the boards laid and nailed, but still haven’t heard from the sander and finisher.  
My other escape last week was to finish a sample piece using one of Bobbi’s nostalgia kits. I am not really good at the vintage romantic look, so with a rather contemporary colour palette, I was fairly happy with the result.
It was also my son’s birthday on Monday – nice way to escape the stresses of not having our floor progressing as it should. Everyone in the family enjoyed the birthday cake of course - in this case a really yummy self saucing chocolate pudding with raspberries, served with caramel honeycomb ice cream.
