School holidays ended yesterday and I spent the day in the hairdressers getting some much needed TLC.

Over the week we had the electricity board checking the cables… very off putting to have a helicopter so close to your roof and Sky dish!

At the weekend I started painting the bathroom – as the plan is to completely redo this in 2011 its a minimal spend. 
(It was planned for this year but we built the studio instead).

As you can see its a small room with one huge window. 
The preparation is my least favourite job – the Cath Kidston gloves and flowery scrubbing brush made it seem less of a chore 🙂
Sad.  But true.

Major work was required filling in the gaps between floorboards;

Woodwork and floor – Light Gray
All from my favourite paint shop Farrow & Ball, I’ve loved these paints for years, even before they were trendy.

I love Autumn for its colours, but really do hate the lack of light at this time of year. 
Photography becomes difficult and I always feel a bit sad as I love the sunlight.

Though it is an excuse to wear my new purple velvet jacket. 
Looks great with the new boots.
