The refurb project :-)

So this year has been about trying to get my home in order and on track alittle at a time!

When I left my ex I left with a car full of stuff and very little else because stuff was important to him and he needed it all!

So anyway….. in January I realised having started again begged borrowed and nearly refurnished a home I hadn’t managed to do more than exist and I wanted to have a home I am proud of …

So I began the complete refurb three storeys ten areas to decorate ….

the light is at the end of the tunnel and I am nearly there !

Being who I am I started with the kids rooms asking about themes and moving them out and doing a complete job from walls to laminate !

Eldest’s goth style room

After blue bubbles and matching furniture to the goth styling I received a letter from my rental company informing me they needed to replace all the heating and the house would require redecorating again so the brakes went on !

Well nearly on !

And I moved nine wheels bins of soil and rubble from my mums house to my back yard to build a raised bed !

Still work to be done but moving all that with my own two hands has to be something and it did leave me with afew lumps and bumps !

Six months later the heating was finally done !

  1. Looking good so far, do you write lists before you start everything? I’m an awful cheat and write my list, then as I finish a job if it wasn’t on it add it and cross it off as it makes me feel better ! Does this make me mad……
