Hello there and welcome to this week's #PoCoLo - it's Friday the thirteenth today and so I hope that goes by without any mishaps. If you were here last week, it was great to see you and if you're new here this week then I know you'll be made to feel very welcome by both Morgan and I and all of our lovely linkers.
I feel as if I've been submerged in a vat of grey this week. It's been misty here with occasional bursts of sunshine. There's been rain but I haven't minded the proper rain so much, but I'm not a fan of that stuff that just hangs in the air. The usual complaint is frizzy hair, but mine of course revels in being different and instead of staying where I'd blow dried it does the exact opposite, and so for most of this week I've just let it be. Sometimes it's the only way.
The work on our conservatory is getting ever closer and I'll have more to share on that over the weekend. Somehow I've lost another week, this one in advance as I was convinced we had an extra week to eat the freezer - but we don't. I guess that means there'll be some rearranging happening this weekend, or a lot of eating. Or both.
The sofa samples have started to arrive and even though it's been grey outside I never realised there were quite so many greys. Some blue, some pink, some brown and some actually grey. And yes I know the yellow velvet is about as far from sensible grey that you can get but I couldn't help but add it to my swatches.
Blogger Showcase: Nate from Above Average Nate
