My Cancer treatment

Things I have learnt this week;


  • Painting a room, from plastering, takes way longer than you think it will. 
  • A radiator may work when your dad re-attaches it, but it probably won’t when you need it. 
  • People can say they'll be there for you, but the words mean nothing unless they're there when you need them. 
  • You never learn that the bottom step of the step-ladder is missing {I have many, many scrapes on my legs to prove it}
  • I don't sleep well alone. Despite having lived alone for a few years, 6 months sleeping with the boy next to me has screwed up my sleep alone habits. 
  • A new cream carpet and a cut on your thumb that won't stop bleeding shouldn’t be mixed.
  • A Polo is like a tardis – an ebay bought sideboard is no match for the car of dreams!
  • Nail varnish removes paint from all sorts of places it shouldn’t be. Like fireplaces.
  • Little gifts to unsuspecting friends can brighten even a rubbish day. 

{can you tell I spent my week in DIY hell?}

  4. I too have been in DIY hell and have realized I am the slowest painter ever. I hope you're excited about the result of all your efforts.

    D and I are trying to get our house ready to sell so we can move back to Blighty! Your Polo/Tardis comment made me smile. D's been extolling the virtues of a Polo ever since we decided to move.

    Good luck finishing up your project, and I hope we see pictures soon.

  5. Keenie - wow , what exciting news. Do you know when you might move? and where to? what an adventure to plan. And think of all the european snowboarding trips you can take ;)
    And D's right, you should definitely look at Polo's. I have had 3 so far and they are ace.

  6. I'll do a blog post about the big move as soon as I stop painting and renovating long enough to breathe. The timing depends on selling our home but we hope to be there in the new year. I'm so excited!
