Cynthias b and b!!

Another project i have on the go is the house that was a Victorian house, i was getting bit stalw with it, it had been done about 6 years ago. Anyway one of my dear friends Debra said why not turn it into something else, well i thought a b and b, which is what i am doing.

Am doing the main bedroom at mo, i have printed off the wallpaper which i think is really pretty. Then decided to turn the space behind the stairs into a en suite shower, and to also make a fitted Ward robe in shabby chic stle. Cos the lady of the house loves French Shabby chic and has a few antiques around the house.

Terrible week

Omg i have had the worst week of my life. As most of you know my hubby has a form of MS, ok we can cope with that. But last week he had a blackout and cut his head open and was dazed, had to get ambulance we spent hours up the a and e, as they thought he had a stroke or TIA, anyway he went down for a CT scan but scanner had broken down so sent home with orders no driving and nothing strenus on the frid we got a call to go back for scan which we did. Then on Sunday another call to say he got to go to TIA clnic on Tuesday, sorry lnog story i know, went there and they did all sorts of tests and it was caused by a low blood prezsure he has, so thank god it wasnt a stroke, a real week of worry.
Today i got a bargain which i ll show you all, We have a sell, swap and buy in this area on Facebook and i happened to click on there this morning and got all this for grand sum of £5.00, yay i love a bargain.
