Beauty in an unexpected place
As I post today's picture I am treated to a background chorus of hammering, drilling and scraping. We're in the middle of a long and often romanticised process called 'doing up a property'. That's to say, Mr Dido does most of the 'doing up' whereas I mainly get to rip stuff to pieces. So - following the swift detachment of the bathroom tiles earlier in the week, some of the wallpaper on the opposite wall had to come off. And look what beauty appeared on the 1930s painted plaster! Such a shame it'll have to be covered again by boring white tiles - I might suggest to Mr Dido we tile around it...!
