Over the last 12 years not much attention has been given to my home as the money was diverted to other things – Kids, business etc.
When you have time to stop and think (for me it was when I was sick in bed for 3 days) you look around and you say to yourself gee I must get these things attended to.
When I first built the house I had a strict budget which I had to adhere to – there was simply no more money left and since I was doing it on my own I had only myself to blame.
I remember I told Ross that I wanted wooden windows on the front of the house, I still remember his words “no you don’t, do you want to be painting them every three years? They will get so hammered by that beautiful Norther Sun”. Haha how right you were Ross! I put wooden slats in between my fence and yes they needed painting every 3-4 years alright from the sun and from the bore water continually on them. One thing you were totally wrong about was the size of my wardrobe I could have taken more of that courtyard Ross, should have known myself better than that – All good just using the other bedrooms now.
So the fence after 12 years has had a face lift with aluminium slats coloured blue of course to match my blue and yellow house (yes a great Eagle fan of course).
I have now ordered the white shutters to go inside my house as well which will give it a lift! 6-8 weeks waiting period… good thing I am a patient woman!!
New chandelier in the entry way – OMG how it sparkles!! Apart from the non productiveness of standing there and looking at it constantly a friend of mine and my daughter pointed out that the new piece made the old light look shabby and not up to speed, so I went out and negotiated another one at the same price (sale had finished). So look out diners at my house you will be bedazzled haha…
The one thing I cannot bring myself to do is to move all the furniture out of the house to get the floors sanded (the bedrooms to be done in wood as I couldn’t afford it in the beginning). I really want it done but will have to pluck the courage up to do that.
In hindsight should have set myself a target to do one thing every couple of years instead of doing it all at once -Ttake heed my friends and keep your place updated gradually its worth it.
Painting I have always had done every 3 years as my painter is the best!!
