A lot of things have been happening at the Happy House lately…Ok Ok so it has been raining cats and dogs outside for a few weeks and my joints seem to be affected by the damp…jobs that I have been putting off for ages have been building up and the fact that I have two grown up children living with me…doesn’t seem to help!!!…but only make them worse! Do kids ever end up tidying up after themselves????
Anyway…the Ironing needed doing, (I had a pile taller than the Eiffel Tower!) The house was getting into a right ‘ole mess…and I told myself it was Ok because I was an artist…and all artists live in a mess! lol!…but it was making me depressed…no-one in the house is really capable…Rosie and Freddy are excused because they have ‘orrible conditions and my grown up son Daz is always out! I think there is a method in his madness, so he doesn’t have to do any jobs for me…!
…and what with all the rain…oh sooo depressing..I decided to use it to my advantage in the end and get sorting out and decorating…because after all who wants to decorate when its hot outside!
The grass in the garden has grown nearly as tall as my ironing pile…but I will have to leave that until it gets a bit dryer…what I have been doing though is decorating my bathroom, I have painted it a duck egg blue and moved the furniture around a bit and added some different books and ornaments…I haven’t taken any pictures in there yet though….but rest assured that when I do I will blog about it 🙂
I have also sorted out my bedroom, added a few different pictures…moved the bed around to four different corners of the room and then decided it looked better where it originally was! Phew! it was sooo tiring doing that…I am also planning to add some wallpaper in this room (only on one wall) and perhaps paint some furniture…but again I will blog about that when I have finished it all…
I have been buying little nic naks on my travels and now I have so many things to add to my website, and re-decorate the rest of the house with…if you have been watching that programme ‘The Hoarder Next Door’…well that is me right now…all my collectables are in the corner of the dining room, with the pile getting bigger and bigger…but it makes me feel soooo good! I just love clutter! lol! I am contradicting myself there a bit I know..but happy clutter is good clutter ain’t it!
…and yesterday morning, Freddy’s Mum and Dad popped round to help me with the ceremonious and rather overdue task of pulling down the overgrown ivy from the front of the house…yep it had reached the roof and was trying to get into the rafters!…surprisingly it came down really easily…it was a job that I had been putting off for ages, as I rather liked the look of it…but the thought that it could damage the roof was too much…but after a lot of hard work our efforts paid off and now we are ivyless!
I am now thinking how to make the front look better…nothing a few red geraniums can’t sort out me finks!
I hope you have enjoyed the pictures…all taken in my house, here and there, more will follow, the more I keep you updated with how things are going…
Speak soon my luverlies…
