I was recently startled by the realisation that the year has not only not just started but it is actually way over its half, almost gone, running out. Last week my work calendar suddenly (and inexplicably) jumped to August! Causing my prompt panic attack. Then I had a cup of tea and slowly remembered – yes, the year 2012 has arrived sometime ago now, but it wasn’t waisted, I just was too busy to notice the time passing by. Because I was doing million and one things in a second (as usual). And one of the projects in particular has been extremely time consuming and energy exhausting. The renovation of our new place.
Yes! Our very own small city apartment. Tiny and cute.
We just moved in after completing Stage One of my very ambitious Renovation Plan – Living room and Kitchen. Everything is painted (white, very, very white), tidied up (well, mostly), scented (Vanilla and Patchouly – my daughter’s favorite fragrances) and more or less furnished. We are extremely pleased with ourselves, in love with IKEA and totally exhausted from the endless pushing, lifting, stretching, bending, kneeling, crouching, hammering, painting, assembling (and disassembling after discovering we did it all wrong)
