Project 365 2018 Week 1

Happy new year! Here we are in 2018 and my fifth consecutive year of Project 365! How did that happen? Here’s our week in pictures… Day 1 – Monday 1st January – the new year is about getting fit for a lot of people. But for me, being fit is just a way of life. Coincidentally, I stumbled across this while downloading my run data from my TomTom watch. Not bad, eh? Day 2 – Tuesday 2nd January – regular...

Decorating the spare room

The spare room is my office. It has a tiny window and is always full of washing. The bed is very comfy – I’ve slept there when my husband has had a bad cold and the snoring has got too much.

There are other parts, namely the ensuite and the separate upstairs toilet, that are flipping awful and totally stuck in the 1980s. Then there’s...

Time for redecorating

When we first moved into our house, over two and a half years ago, we decorated it all incredibly quickly. We got the keys on a Tuesday and moved in on Saturday. In those few days, we completely decorated all of our bedrooms. And they needed some serious decorating! Every room in the house had dark brown wood skirting boards and most of them had floral wallpaper. Covering that up took some serious coats of paint! The following week,...
