...normality returned. Today I did get to the garage, and I did get the paint. I also got new rollers for the paint, some candles...more wild bird food, and two pots of hyacinths...I will photo when they're flowering.
I also got the call from the agent. Our viewer went on to another house after visiting me, and it was in the village she lived in as a girl. When she told me that yesterday, I knew she'd prefer that...and the call today confirmed it.
So, now my painting and tiling continue...I'm looking forward to the refreshed kitchen.
Oh..oops! I also separated my jewellery from my beads on Etsy...I now have two shops.
