I have one day till the workmen come to replace my gas central heating and the question is do I have enough time to strip another whole room of wallpaper before they get here. I don’t know – I still have a lot of things to pack out of the road. It seems like life is just a long hard fight this week. I have not had ten minutes peace for the last two weeks. Things have been slowly getting more and more hectic. I have to keep stopping the work in my house to go and do shifts at my real job then try and fit in some essay work as I go along.
I have to keep telling myself that it will be worth all the effort when I see the end result. I still have a million things to do before it even starts getting put back into place. I am also trying frantically to sort out some work for my essay that is due next week but I need to give my tutor a synopsis of it like yesterday. Everything is running late, behind schedule and it is getting on my nerves. Starting to have a little mini panic about it all. As usual I know I will get it done but at the moment the finishing point seems so far away.
I have to really thank my thirteen year old son because he is the best help around the house – from hanging out washing, helping me pack things away or diving to the shop he always helps me out. I cannot thank him enough. My best friend who is the catalyst for me starting all this house decorating also deserves a mention because she is helping me strip the walls, helping me paint and paper the whole house. I need to think up a suitable thank you for them both.
Here is to a new lease of life from my new decorated home (when it is finished)
