1. Over the weekend, we went to IKEA and completely transformed our tiny bedroom which was previously a bit too minimalist and looked like a squat *gratuitous pic alert*. We also did similar to DD's room. As a result I have four chairs in the dining room with post-its saying 'sell' 'give' 'dump' and 'relocate. Last night I also completely decluttered our office area (I'm doing the Apartment Therapy January Cure and mission one was a drawer, but I did an area because I'm a swot!). Anyway, loving home right now. Next week we should be getting new front and back doors and next month new wooden sash windows for the front of the house. Then we can get indoors plastered and painted and refloored. Getting there, slowly.
5. A funny conversation. I was telling a colleague that I put cinnamon in my porridge as it negates the need for sugar. She misunderstood and said 'but you know there's sugar in the cinnamon one?'. When I repeated that there was no sugar in there she demanded I showed her the sachet and I had to explain I actually just weighed oats out at home from a big pack and added cinnamon and banana myself![/img]
