It's been a day or two since my last blog. I've been busy painting the front room (yes....AGAIN!). This time I've plumped for Farrow and Ball's 'Stoney Ground'. I thought about posting a pic but then thought better of it. No one really wants to see continual pictures of my front room as it undergoes one transformation after another. I decided it might be a bit like having to look through someone's endless holiday snaps on slide show charting their trek through Guatemala, complete with running commentary....or listening to a husband taking you through his round of golf....particularly the brilliant 9th hole that he played, complete with a demonstration of how the shot was played.....Or re-telling the moment that he landed the worlds biggest carp on the end of his line! "It was this big!" No. For now, I will spare you.
What I have done though, is post this pic of my husband's birthday cake! Really easy to make! The children insisted that we make a spider cake. He hates spiders. In fact I would go as far as to say that he reacts like a small child at the sight of a spider....the squealing, jumping onto the nearest chair type of reaction, not the rounding it into a corner and squashing it reaction! I will not allow that. Nothing to do with interiors, although black and white would look great against Stoney Ground! I was pretty pleased with our efforts though so please forgive me for showing it off here!
