Due to some strict choices, that was the first proper weekend I spent at home, apart from shopping for paint and guitar strings and waffle makers, it was my first weekend at home for about 3 years where I wasn't completely exhausted. I cleaned, and washed and cleaned and washed more than I have ever ever done, because I am realising how much easier my life is when I am organised, and everything is in its place. The house feels fantastic, and I am so in the mood to do some decorating and every time I walk into the lounge, I can smell the daffy's that mum put in the window.
I realised this weekend, I think maybe I have the tendency to surround myself with people to stop me feeling lonely, after about 3 hours of being alone this weekend I stopped feeling the urge to ring someone up and comfort me, and started to really enjoy it, and then I was amazed at the things I had time to think about when I was alone, and actually had some really profound realizations about a few things in my life, I wasn't expecting that! They are a bit too deep to share, but blimey I am feeling so damned good today, my head is clear and I am ready for some serious work.
So happy spring cherubs, I hope you all feel as ready as I do to have some hard working fun :-)
PS, this is my idea for my kitchen, this is how it looks at the mo:
And this is the little tester I did, you won't be able to see any of the natural wood when its finished, and it will certainly lighten up the kitchen, I am loving it, but its quite labour intensive with the two colours, any thoughts?
