This last part of January has just raced by.
Tomorrow school starts.
I have been working VERY part time since Christmas. It's been a bit of a struggle juggling work stuff with the kids home so as Ken was also on holidays, I pretty much took January off..
I am itching to get back into work full time though. I have LOTS of stuff in the pipeline which I need to attend to and work for Scrapboxx due as well as some other things happening, so from tomorrow it will be all systems GO!
So what's been happening around here?
We have been in MAJOR cleanout mode. I have bagged up so many things from the kids cupboards and have been very ruthless with Capri's toy box! We are not quite there yet but I have achieved a lot these holidays with the house.
I have also been painting..
After painting Jamison's wall I got busy in our front loungeroom. Its the least used room and it's such a sunny space with a lovely outlook and I have always liked that room and wanted it to be utilised more. But the furniture is crappy and the room was plain cream and needed a spruce up!
Soooo. I painted a brown feature wall. Happy with that colour, I then bought a new, very out there, funky floor rug. Was undecided and took almost an HOUR to choose from several rugs at Domayne on the weekend and finally decided on a very geometric olive green, cream, brown, can't remember the other colours rug!
And now it's home and in there brightening the floorspace..I love it.
And then still excited over my brown feature wall, decided to paint another feature wall..late yesterday.
Hmmmm. So the colour is a green. I am very much in my green phase. Love all shades of green. well except very dark greens...And the colour chart green looked really nice. But now it's on the wall..it looks dark. Maybe too dark. And a bit TOO green. I can't decide. I am about to go and paint the second coat and i am hoping I will like it better once its all done.
It doesn't help that the furniture in there is mismatched and dated! So we went shopping for new chocolate brown leather sofas yesterday. Again, I narrowed it to two choices and then stood there undecided, deliberating and wasting time for about 40mins! I hate it when I get indecisive. Ken was sold on one particular style sofa but I wasn't quite 100% sure about that one.
So we came away with nothing but a brochure! Which was very disapointing.
Anyway, thats all for now. We are having my friend Marie and her kids, Bridie and Nick here for a visit today and I do want to get that next coat on the wall so must get moving..
have a great Monday everyone.
