Bits and bobs and bye!
Lindsay tagged me a couple of weeks ago and I started this drawing with the intention of doing an illustrated list but time got the better of me. These are green olives stuffed with garlic. Sounds awful but actually they are very mild and very more-ish! I'll do the tag once we've moved as it will probably be more interesting then.
This is Mark's bedside table. In case there are any new readers here, this is not our stuff! Inside the door it has a ceramic lining so it must have had a chamber pot! (Now I see this drawing on the blog I can see how wonky I've drawn the table top!) It has a glass top. The bed has an enormous headboard and we are both so glad this is our last night sleeping here, those foam pillows are so uncomfortable!
The light shade in Alex's bedroom. For some reason this reminds me of Habitat and Terence Conran - it has a seventies feel but maybe it's sixties. This drawing gave me a lot of trouble, probably because I expected it to be easy.
The two chairs in our bedroom, an unfinished drawing. It's actually the same chair but drawn from different angles and not meant to look like one complete drawing (just in case anyone thinks that's strange perspective!)
Another unfinished drawing of the one working lamp in the sitting/dining room. This one reminds me of my aunt who had a lovely ceramic fruit bowl centrepiece on her dining table although this is not nearly as classy!
I'll be off-line for a couple of weeks as we are moving to our new house in Thonex tomorrow morning. I can't help wondering how long we will be there as the longest time I've spent in any house has been 8 years! Together this will be our sixth (in six different countries if you count England and Scotland as two) and each one (apart from Kuwait) was supposed to be the one where we settled permanently! It feels like we have been in Veyrier forever so I've almost forgotten what we have in our container but Mark reminded me of one of the boxes. The washing machine had to be dried and was packed up on the first day so we put our dirty laundry and damp towels in a box out of the way when the removals men came to pack. It's about to make a re-appearance so I hope Mark gets that washing machine plumbed in tout suite!
Looking forward to catching up with everyone soon - bye for now!
