Displacement Activity

Using the blog as a record of my recent activities and whilst hunting for the date I bought my Bravissimo bra ( as a prelude to returning it yesterday as it is so tight it continues to bruise my skin ), I discovered the statement back in April that the bathroom was ready for painting , and late yesterday afternoon found me still lurking with a book and avoiding picking up the brush .

True , there are Issues ..... the most pertinent being the missing slate and the fact that the rainiest June on record has not helped our leak , and that we still have not tracked down a roofer .
But still , I could have started on the skirting boards. So , with that in mind , I made a start last night . As with all these things you no sooner open the can of paint ( bending a knife in the process ) than you realise you have the wrong paint . So , a trip to Wickes to purchase more . Picking up brochures about bathroom furniture leads us on a wild goose chase in search ( still ) of a floor standing cabinet . I know exactly what I want . Something in stainless steel , three drawers , holding all the toiletries that currently litter two window sills , and no matter how tastefully arranged in bowls and in stylish groups , still ruin the bathroom's " clean lines " . The clean lines I hope to have , I should add , as the spidery corners persist and ... well suffice to say clean lines is a dream .
There is such a cabinet , in John Lewis, but at a price , and I hang onto the belief that there is a far superior one available in a sale somewhere . Hence the wild goose chase and the two hours in town in the morning following the grappling with bra sizes and cups and bands and " How about this in hot pink then since we dont have your size in black ? "
So , when I finally lie on the tiles , paint brush in hand , attempting to reach the far spidery corner under the copper pipes ( harder than it looks ) , I manage only one length of wall before evening activities beckon .
Oh well , there 's always another day .
My new bra has to be ordered , and will take three weeks before its made , out of the warehouse and in through my letterbox . Is it really that big ? Or complex ? I still love Bravissimo though . A truly uplifting exrerience , shopping there .
