Home again Home again

Firstly I want to say hello and welcome to my new followers on Bloglovin.
I'm back in bonny Scotland after my trip to visit family, it's always hard to leave them but I had some very good news whilst there.  My stepmum had been diagnosed with a very aggressive breast cancer but after two operations, one a mastectomy she is now free of the cancer.  A bit of recouperation time and she will be back to normal. 
In my last post I showed a few pictures of my friends lovely home and I had been telling my OH when I spoke to him on the phone, that I wanted to decorate the lounge before Christmas if possible. I got home to find he had started it bless him. The ceiling is painted and the skirtings are primed and he waited till I could choose the colour for the walls. We went shopping today to get the paint and got a bargain at B&Q, buy 1 get 1 free of Crown paint so along with the gloss we spent £26. This is all I intend to spend on our makeover as I will be adapting furniture I already have. I will post pics of the room when it's done.
I also started my Christmas gift shopping today.  I managed to get about half of the presents needed along with two Birthday presents sorted and will have to earn more before I can do the rest.  I will not get into debt for Christmas, those days are gone, so I used cash to buy everything after budgeting for our November bills first.  I did enjoy my little spree though.
The weather for those in the south of England from tomorrow night is meant to be very windy, a change for us to miss it! We nicknamed our house Hurricane Heights!  Batton down those hatches and look after yourselves ok.
