that will take three or four weeks as she is busy making costume for a pantomine. How cool is that? Anyway, that gives me time to get that room in to shape. I don’t have the money to get plastering work done as I had intended, but have been quite extravagant on the curtains and feel perfectly happy that they will make that room into one that reflects my personality etc. the colours and patterns have suggested a colour for the walls too, which I hadn’t been able to come up with before. I am just going to paint over the existing wallpaper, I know it’s a real DIY faux pas but I think it will look very well and I will worry about the plastering in a few years when I am less cash strapped. The important thing is to get some progress on the room, the wooden floors are down ten years and I had always intended to change the wallpaper to something that showed up the beauty of the colours in the wood. No more hanging around!! 18 months ago

and they are GEORGOUS…......saved the old ones in keeping with frugal abundance goal, and will make shelves out of them for the box room. It would have been sensible to put the stair carpet back on after the work, but in keeping with the BE LESS SENSIBLE goal, I left it off – the annoyance of trotting up and down avoiding all the little spikey carpet grips will motivte me to get the new carpet chosen and laid….. I hope….. 19 months ago

and he responded right away. After ignoring all my polite and chatty ones. He is to contact me this week, so maybe I can FINALLY get going on some of the work I have saved up for. Before I have the money all flittered away. 22 months ago
And going to start with a few small steps. Like painting the bathroom (the smallest room in my house). I have painted a few trail colours on the wall and one of them is really growing on me. Enjoying indulging myself this way, nobody to criticize, or comment, or tell me it isn’t suitable. I want an ‘aqua’, one of those hues that can’t decide if it is blue or green. And everything else in there that I can paint will be a soft white. Neat and clean and lovely. 23 months ago
