Have A Purr-fectly Delightful Day ..... Sketch Saturday Challenge #191

Our first week of peace and quiet went off without a hitch, and was peaceful and quiet ... don't tell anyone listen!  The only noise being radiated is from my bottom :fart: , think I might have the start of one of those 24 hour bugs, cos I feel really sick too ... suppose that could be from the smell rolling on the floor!

Anyway, we had the bed delivered this week for the new guest room big grin, brought the paint half price of course (£7.00) and some filler.   A friend gave us some slats for the bed, now just need a mattress.  Hopefully gonna start stripping the paper off the 2 walls this weekend and then sand the head and foot boards down.  I'm going to try and take  's  of before and after if I remember.  Not sure how long this is all going to take cos we're expecting to be doing another house move sometime soon ....   ... not us, but our gorgeous friend Paula is moving from the big smoke (London) to a lovely little bungalow in the close behind our house!!!! laughing ... so many laughs ahead of us now and something to look forward too happy.   Along with "The Sun" holiday  the 4 of us are planning  ... poor DH having to spend 24/7 with me, Mum and Paula!  He'll return silly
