I've learnt a great deal these last few weeks about making a dolls house. First and foremost I've made good use of all my crafting skills, each one has come in very handy. As have all the tools, the cutters, paper trimmer (it makes life so much easier!). Then there are the DIY skills I've built up over the years, like wallpapering, putting up shelves and dado rails, laying carpet. I've not rushed, and if I've got something wrong then I've sat down, had a cuppa, then started over. Yes there are a few mistakes, but minor ones, and easily rectified. And there is still so much to do.
Not only is there furniture to buy but also all the other bits, china, cutlery, pots and pans, bedding... it really is like furnishing a real house. I'm now looking at lights, as they are the next vital components, I've chosen to go down the battery route for this house, but there is still so much choice.
Well that's it for today, not a bad day, not the wash out as predicted by the Met office, in fact the opposite. It is raining now, but who cares? Well Harvey does, he's not a fan of getting wet. He's currently having a row with his girlfriend, she went too far and stole his chicken - that'll teach him to eat it.
Will summer ever arrive? We can but dream...
