we had a nice family tea time gathering at my parents' today. on the menu: mini sandwiches, pavlova with strawberry coulis and basil syrup, chocolat coconut marble loaf, curd cake with blueberries and a redcurrant baiser cake. i have a bit of a sugar overdose... i feel good!
tomorrow, my uncle, who is a specialist at house painting and decorating, will come over for dinner to help me decide on a suitable color for each wall. ah, i forgot to mention it: before i can put up the many pictures i framed for the wall of fame, i want to paint all the walls new. i'm thinking maybe one in charcoal black, or maybe one even in chalkboard paint (so i can write the menu on it when i have guests over for dinner). or a very pale pink, or a light duck egg blue in the bedroom? my uncle thought one gold wall would be nice in my flat. but i have a feeling black will win. keep you posted!
hmm, i wish i could think only about redecorating and nothing more this whole week... i'm so in the mood for another round of paint!
