Hey guys! Long time no speak!
If you have followed my blog for a while you will know that for the past year I have kept a three post a week schedule, and I said after my break that I would return to that. That was going well until last week.
I had booked the week off work to redecorate the downstairs of my house and decided that I should take time off the blog as well so that I can focus my full attention on the redecorating process.
The process started with us going paint shopping on the Sunday and spending around 3 hours in B&Q deciding on colours and what tools we were going to be using. I already had an idea in mind so it was just a case of finding colours to match the idea in my head. We didn’t actually start painting until Tuesday and due to various issues (The main one being, we were doing it all ourselves) we only managed to get the living room and the hall way done. The paint we were using needed three coats to be even, despite claims of “even coverage” so we basically spent three days painting the same walls, we didn’t even get change to do the Kitchen.
After three days of solid work we gave up. The walls we had painted were finally even and we were happy with the progress we had made, but we made a joint decision that we wanted to actually have a couple of days off. We needed to get the walls painted before our new flooring was delivered which (Apart for the kitchen we needs more work than just paint) we managed to do successfully.
The latter half of the week was spent attempting to put our house back together. We managed to take the dog out into the country side one of the days where the weather was gorgeous and it was beyond nice to get some proper fresh air.
We also took a day trip out to the zoo with Ben’s family which was great, but it feels like in a week away from work, we only got like two ‘Days off’ so to speak. Luckily though we are off again in two weeks and have booked a cheeky weekend away in the Lake District for Ben’s Birthday.
We are now just playing the waiting game for the new flooring and the sofa to be delivered.
It has been a long week, and I am due back at work at 6:30 tomorrow morning, however I wanted to let you all know that my usual blogging schedule is back, and I will be posting three times a week!
Sorry for taking a week off unscheduled, but sometimes, needs must.
Hope you enjoyed this little life update!
Talk to you soon!
