Crabby Monday


Most of the weekend i had a brass band dancing on my head..that’s ok..it’s a tough noggin anyways..while i headed to bed to try and find some respite from the booming,hubby was busy fixing my sewing room up so it will make a better work space..
He painted the whole room..bought and assembled a desk for me..shifted all the things out to be sorted.
We did manage a trip out when my head calmed down and got some bits and bobs i needed.
Today i thought i would paint some undercoat on the trim of the built in wardrobe that hubby removed the doors from..the space is amazing in there and the people who built the house had installed the most hideous and cheap sliding doors..when hubby removed them the bright aqua that they painted the room in was revealed..
The house had been (apart from the kitchen which was blue cabinetry orange wall tiles) all given a coat of paint to try and sell it..so far as we can tell from our extensive painting is that the colour scheme went as such…
Laundry navy blue..walls and skirts
Our Bedroom..maroon walls and skirts with a green and blue tiled ensuite with pale green cabinetry(ensuite has yet to be redone)
Single room purple walls and skirts
Double room purple walls and skirts
Loungeroom navy blue walls and skirts(now redone)
Sewing room aqua….yikes!
They did so much right…then lost the plot..
Anywho…so today i gave the wardrobe insides a good lick of undercoat..it has been hot and damn humid..i was sweating like no ones business,but finished then gave a coat of undercoat to the plain unstained shelf that will be going up…
Now to get to my Crabby Monday..
I leave the room to get a drink of water..come back…someone..feline…has taken a piddle on the floor of the wardrobe insert..not just a spritz but a fullblown bucket full…
Really girls?? I love em too bits..but some days i do wish they went to day care..as i put them to bed before i wished them nitey night and looked at their innocent faces..
Urghhhhhh…i am crabby…
I may be a tad awol also..i have some things new and exciting (well i think so) to do and it is taking a lot of my time..i also have an appointment finally with a Rheumatologist on Wednesday in Melbourne and hope i can get some good advice ..while in town i will be taking a detour to Lygon Street..i can hear the Cannoli and cakes calling me πŸ™‚

    • Hahaah well Fozziedad has done the most work πŸ™‚ Fred..usually i am the painter but the band kept playing πŸ˜‰ and yes that guy was super quick..the one on the top was slower..he inched out from under his rock by the ocean and i waited and waited as he got further out..if he had seen me well..gone in a flash! xxx

    • Easy i remember Carrie and her great room! the room is not big enough here for all that colour πŸ™‚ already they had painted it a cruddy white to sell (seems nobody wanted a house like a carnival bonus to us the price dropped enough for us to afford it ) so it’s the bits that were hidden by doors haaa..we are going to leave it open and put shelves in for my things..seems i now have a office studio to do my photo things now πŸ™‚ the brass band has eased..yay…and if the specialist cannot help them the cakes of Lygon street await..oh my friend the cakes….better than Caramello Koalas even πŸ™‚ xxx

  1. I love the crabs! Good luck with the renovations. It sounds like the previous owners were pretty … Adventurous… In their decorating choices. I hope the deal with your cats improves. Just FYI, when my normallt box-trained male cate started peeing buckets in weird places (many times, not just once) it turned out to be because he was diabetic. I hope your cat was just pissed.

  2. Hoping all goes well at the doctor and that he can offer you some relief. I feel so bad for you. Can’t wait to hear about your exciting new project!!! I am “crabby” but that is due to our unrelenting temperatures. We are going to be below 10 all week. Can’t take much more of this 😦

  3. aaww my friend. I love your ‘crabby’ friends. My mom is a crab (born in July). She’s always crabby. Snorts – at least that’s what dad tells her. I really hope you feel better this week. I don’t like it when you feel bad and I know you’ve had a time lately. We thought about you a lot this past weekend. More to come on that πŸ™‚ Take care and take a bit of something sweet for me okay – smooches hogs and snout kisses. XOXO – Bacon

  5. So sorry to hear about those grizzly headaches. Not fun, I know. Well, as selfish as it sounds, I’m glad to hear I’m not the only one who experiences these odd cat happenings. No rhyme or reason but majorly frustrating! Good luck at the doctor’s; I hope they can help. Sounds like you’ve got a great backup plan! Cute crabs — weird but cute! Have a great week and hope all goes well! πŸ˜€ ❀

  6. Looking forward to seeing a photo of the finished room.

    I love purple, but it can make a room dark.

    As to the cat pee, my girls said, ‘well what do you expect from a pesky cat’:) LOL

    Good luck with the consultant. Sue, Polly & Honey

  8. Either they loved colourful walls, the paint was on sale, or perhaps they were colour blind! I once had a house where I removed the wall paper to find two more different papers underneath!

  9. Cannoli – one of my FAVORITE things ever………as for the girls and their pee-o-grams in the house – what on EARTH do you think is causing that? They’ve been doing it for a while…..they don’t like their litter? They don’t like disruption? They want your attention 24/7 (impawsible!)……I know that’s got to be a HUGE bother constantly sopping up the messes not to mention a big headache you don’t need! Maybe you should hire a kitty psychiatrist to put them on the couch and find out what’s going on??? (tee hee)

    Hugs and get some REST girl………………………….
