Well, my cleaner has been this morning and now I can say that our bedroom, which has been redecorated by a professional (and it shows) looks splendid. All we are waiting for is the curtains to come back from being dry-cleaned. Actually, I love the room without curtains as we have such a lovely view, but it is no joke trying to undress in the dark!
Somebody asked to see my wall hanging, which is over the bed. I have gently washed and ironed it - and it was very dusty. The material is Kaffe Fassett and the design was inspired by beach huts I saw at Southwold in Suffolk. It has faded slightly (the room faces due South) but in some ways I rather like that.
Three of the photos show the room redecorated but without things on the wall; the other three show the wall hanging and two walls which have some of my nude paintings on. The Lovers, which hangs over the mantelshelf, is one of my favourites and was painted by my late husband's uncle, Dick Rivron, who lived in Australia for many years.
