Lounging in the lounge


Well now, someone's been busy! Hives called earlier to say that the wallpapering was almost done in the lounge and I should pop up to see how he was doing. I've been a bit busy down at the Pet Center I run so he's been left to his own devices a bit up here. Today when he called I felt a little guilty that I'd left him on his own to do it all but he said he was in his element and just wanted me to see how it was all coming along. I was all set to get my sleeves rolled up anyway and help him but it seems like he's had everything under control and I've missed all the fun...

The hard work is finished and it looks amazing. Minnie sent over a rug that she loves and asked that the decor match the colours on it so I hope she likes what we've done with the place. I think it matches pefectly.

When I arrived Hives was taking a well deserved siesta. It was the least I could do to make him a cup of tea but when I went to ask how many sugars he took I think I must have shaken him a bit too roughly as he leapt up shouting, "Batten down the Main Sail!! Look lively!"

He said he wasn't sleeping, he was just resting his eyes but by the sound of the snores I'd say his eyes were fully relaxed and well and truly rested. Goodness knows what sort of dreams Hives has... Harking back to the glory days, no doubt.

Anyway, it's all done and looking lovely. I want to wait until Minnie gets here and chooses her own bits and pieces to decorate with but I couldn't resist putting up a little photo of 'Pusska', our pet cat from when we were younger. We both loved her very much and I have an identical photo in my own house so I hope Minnie doesn't mind. I'm sure she'll love it.

    1. Thanks Paula! I suppose I should be grateful for small mercies... There are worse things he could have yelled when woken from his deep sleep, heheh.

    1. Thank you! I'm having to reign in my uber decorating skills because the blank canvas is just too tempting...pity it's not mine to go to town on. One little kitty picture should be ok though :)
