Kittens And Clutter

Know what this is???

Not sure?

Well let me help you out.

THIS my friends is an EMPTY alcove!!! (apart from a random dining chair).

The point is, it shouldn't BE empty!

I've spent the better part of a week decorating my dining room. 

It's my first attempt at wallpapering and, even if I do say so myself, it ain't so shabby.  Im pretty pleased with the way it's turned out.

The whole thing is white and it's so much lighter and brighter.

I showed off my dexterity a little with camera in one hand, paintbrush in the other balanced precariously with one foot on the window sill and the other on the step ladder:

So, my empty alcove WELL ...

I needed more furniture in the room, all it had was the dining table and chairs and my merchants chest - it never looked finished or complete.

So, I aquired this on ebay:

currently cluttered with the stuff I'm keeping after my decluttering ;)

The alcove is 46" wide, the ad said this cabinate was 44" wide, perfect!

If only the twazock (a good old Somerset expression meaning, he who does not understand that size DOES indeed matter should stay the f*ck off ebay!) who measured it had taken the measurements from the base rather than across the doors it might even fit!

It leaves me having a complete rethink of the layout for my dining room and I am not happy!

In other news, Tilly, my lovely cat had kittens last night, look!

There is a very real danger I will become a kitten bore on FB but my friends will just have to suck it up until I get over it!

Ok, well, I know I'm a slacker and I honestly do have a shed load of posts in the offing, soooo much more of the good, the bad and the downright fucking ugly to share with you all but for now I have kittens to gaze at ;)
