While waiting for the details to be filled in for our move to Singapore, we are keeping ourselves busy. Hubby is on ‘garden-leave’, that apparently is the appropriate name for being in between jobs. We are getting ready for the plunge in the unknown by trying to sell our cars, fridge and washing machine. This is not going too well yet, so you know anyone who might be interested and is ready to come and pick it up, just let me know.
Also, it seems an excellent time to do all those DIY jobs we never got around doing before. Since we don’t really know how much time we have got left, we are hurrying everything along. We now have a huge house, a large enough garden and an enormous garage and we don’t know what we’ll be getting, so DIY it is.
Last week we painted 6 dining room chairs, a rattan sofa set (3-, 2- and 1-seater) two side-tables. We used some type of ink first and then a whole load of varnish, so it won’t stain. We actually love the result, what do you think? (The pillows of course still need a make-over, but that’s on the list for Singapore… hopefully this time way before we move)
Furthermore I finished my first ever building project. I made a table; start simple, right?
It contains some of the shells we found in the last year and a half as well as some starfish that washed on shore in Ciudad del Carmen. I made everything from scratch and this is the result.
We are now done with our DIY backlog, so we are back to waiting for more news on the move…
