|I missed this|
I'm not used to sitting about with nothing to do so I decided to update her kitchen. The units are wooden and about 18 years ago my father had painted them with what could only be described as hospital corridor green. I had always hated them and now was my opportunity. I came back from Homebase with a clutch of colour charts, crying at how cheap paint was in England compared to France. I could see the hesitation when I suggested a rich maroon colour for the base units and a warm cream for the one on the wall. Perhaps Mum was still under the effect of the anaesthetic but she said yes! Fortunately she loved the result and then went on an Ebay shopping spree buying new curtains, a clock and placemats.
