I thought it might be time to update a bit. I’ve been slacking very badly when it comes to blogging… or anything internet related really. Too busy with real life? Well sort of, and also I’ve had some trouble with my arm/wrist and was told to avoid unnecessary typing. At some point it was so painful I could hardly sleep, so avoiding typing came quite naturally. =P
So. Today I got woken up at 8.30 by five men barging into the flat to fix the air circulation thingies. Which was nice. Cue a frantic search for pyjamas and then trying to busy myself with cleaning the kitchen to keep out of their way. Mind you, I could get used to this morning tea thing. Mmmmm.
While this old flat is sitting on the market without anyone seemingly wanting to buy it (apart from a couple who were very keen and then put in a ridiculous offer) the new flat is getting along nicely. We’ve painted the office, the hallway and the bedroom, which got a new bed yesterday and is looking almost finished.
One wall in the bedroom is a lovely green, the other off-white (what a nice job trying to get rid of the huge blue square on that wall was)and the curtains and bedspread are going to be red/burgundy sorta.
The office is sort of duck egg blue. And I want to get fuchsia curtains and a rug and some other accessories to make it zingy and energising to work in.
The living room is going to be quite natural in terms of colour, sort of relaxing hopefully. And we found an ad for the perfect corner sofa yesterday. It’s a nice off-white colour though, so it’ll be an interesting experiment to see how long it takes for Stu to pour some red wine over it. 😀 Anyways, we’re going to go see, and maybe buy, it on saturday.
The hallway is a lovely yellow (which Stu chose), haven’t made a paint sample of that but you can probably imagine a yellow. 😛 Not a very bright one, mind.
And then there’s the guest-/dressing-/photogear-room left to do. That’s gonna be my girly room. 😀 And it’ll have some romantic wallpaper in lovely purple colours. Just have to get rid of three layers of old wallpaper first. 😐
The really big jobs, i.e. the kitchen and the bathroom, will have to wait until we’ve sold this flat and know what we can afford to do… Hopefully that will happen soon.
Oh and yesterday we got broadband there. Yay. We’re officially living between two flats now then. Hello debt. 😀
