With the May Bank Holiday Weekend just around the corner, I'm in total list-making mode. Lately, because Himself slags my lists unmercifully (in an attempt to get out of doing a tap of decorating, methinks), I've not been writing them down. He reckons that a list committed to paper is ultimately going to result in a flump when Monday rocks around and I realise we - oh who am I kidding, I - haven't done half the stuff I'd planned.
Well, flumps or no, I have so many jobs on the agenda this long weekend, I'm making a list dammit!
Clothes mountain relocated to bed in spare room. Also floor in spare room. But we are still calling it a success, ok?
Disgusting IKEA Pax sliding door wardrobe taken apart and relocated to corner of spare room. Er, result.
Done, but the stupid thing is inexplicably about two inches bigger than the mattress all around which is driving me nuts. I feel an IKEA hack coming on...
→ Put more tester paint squares on the bedroom wall.
→ Feel frustrated about not really knowing what colour to paint the bedroom, let alone what shade to use.
→ Abandon all decorating to flick through back issues of Living Etc and inspiration files for, well, inspiration.
→ Abandon flicking through back issues of Living Etc and inspiration files in favour of arsing about the Internet for a bit, desperately looking for inspiration.
→ Have tea and join Himself on the couch for an episode of Charmed.
→ Cajole Himself to hoover everywhere and maybe do some mopping.
→ Sort out junk
→ Finish painting kitchen cabinets and affix new hardware purchased from Chloe Alberry on a trip to London with Deni-o in April 2007 (!)
→ Get second coat of paint up on the walls of the kitchen/dining room.
→ Recruit Dad to hang my lovely Cole & Son "Woods" wallpaper in the dining room.
→ Get Himself to get rid of the now redundant middle curtain pole bracket in the sitting room by talking about how it's "a man's job" and will require the use of Power Tools.
→ Finish making a Roman blind for the kitchen window.
→ Hit the carpet shops to find a runner for the stairs, or maybe a runner plus new carpet for upstairs.
