A stove has been ordered. New flooring has been ordered. Shelves have been cleared, and have been claimed by a new owner. New shelves have been found. Sofas have been identified. Nothing else will happen for about a fortnight (apart from the shelves refilling, slowly and quietly, hoping I won’t notice). The bookclub will still have something to sit on when they come round and they won’t need dust masks any more than usual.
Just as I was beginning to get a bit bored of the whole decorating notion (yes, two weeks before it even starts; I told you I’m fickle), the internet sent me a present.
Oooh- how fabulous is that? Thank you, internet.
I’ve already been pointing out pictures to Spurs Fan, full of excitement, while he
rolls his eyes in despair smiles with relief that term is due to start and he’ll be back in school with hundreds of screaming children rather than at home with me.
Notions I have for a wall of photographs, or of plates, or using shutters instead of curtains now have a photographic basis, and it’s so much easier to convince him with evidence… I’ll be unstoppable now. Until I get bored again.
