    Yours truly was a numptie and forgot February, so here's March in plenty of time. As before, just point your camera at something on the 1st of the month and share it here. Arty, mundane, highbrow, lowbrow, in focus or out. Document your day or use the occasion to wow us - it's up to you.

    Things that make me happy.
    Flowers in my house (hubby always bought me flowers, all the time, but now I do it myself)
    The sun climbing in the sky after the long dark days.

    Then view from that window, which is lovely this morning, but perishing cold out there:

    Side thingy that has all the dining stuff in the drawers and drinks under, The sculpture came from Malta and we were going to get the male partner to it on next visit, but it had gone:

    And my fave objet d'art, which I was given in Toronto and is worth a few farthings:

    No lovely sunlight here today. Everything feels very damp. This is the view from my kitchen window out to the back.

    And this is the view from the living room window to the front.

    Ta, it is a Canadian artist and she is known for cutting holes in things. Got the name somewhere on the certificate.

    Mundane, I can do mundane.

    Cleaning the AirBnB. Making the bed for our guest tomorrow after ironing the bedding this morning.

    Looks very comfy!

    It is a comfy bed, we got a lot of comments about that.

    I have never done so much ironing in my life as I have since we opened this place.

    And the mundane continues.

    Bathroom done. Nice shiny taps.

    Lovely place! Love the dark wall, but ouzzling over the numbers. You've made the place a wonderful place for those on holiday.
    PS Great socks! ;)

    Thanks. I take it you mean puzzling, or is ouzzling a word I don't know?

    They were taken in mainly Bruges a few years ago. All of the art on the wall is either mine or Becky's.

    The numbers are in here. https://www.flickr.com/photos/nigel_g/albums/72157682499352933

    Oh and some of the furniture, is Sarah's. The purple sofa was upholstered by her, the dining table she had stripped and sprayed and the seat pads she did. There is another chair n the lounge that she did too.

    Indeed, it was puzzling, though I quite like the sound of ouzzling - sounds boozy! Great to see all the art. Do people comment on it?

    dream_police Well-Known Member

    Yes, we have had comments, certainly on the travel ones in the other room and the bedroom.

    Finished my cleaning jobs and as the weather was quite nice, albeit cold, I went out for a bike ride through little villages near me which was very pleasant.

    Flooded road. It is bad enough in a car but on a bike. I got wet feet.

    A friend of ours was thinking of buying this many years ago to do up and live in. Clearly still not sold.

    It might have shifted slightly.

    In a lucky coincidence, my mood, the weather, and this theme all aligned on the same day. Went out to shoot some more stuff for my 'documenting Long Eaton' project. Still processing the straight documentary shots, here's something I put a tiny bit more effort in to.
