Each time we leave East Lancs it gets harder. We spent yesterday afternoon looking in Estate Agency windows at the houses for sale, then as we drove back we noticed the houses that were for sale in areas we like. Then we got home and looked online at the houses. Then we had a long discussion.
We decided that we wouldn't ever come here if we didn't live here, but we would always visit the places we like no matter where we live, if that makes sense. So we decided today we would hunt around the house for twenty things we could do to improve the house. Of course one of those things was making some jam buns to go with a nice cup of tea.
Rehanging the Kaplan panels meant we could put our other pictures back where they live. It also meant the spare bed could go back to being a bed. From this (the sheet had been covering the panels)
Just a normal room! It also meant I could put all my fabric and sewing things back into the sideboard, I hadn't wanted to mess about in that room as I had visions of falling onto the bed and putting my hand through the fabric or snapping the frames!
We also bought a chain for the plug in the bathroom, so we went from this
a blurry thing with no plug, to this
a plug with a chain! It cost £1.90 for the chain and took about 30 seconds to fit, we didn't bother buying a new plug, just reused the one we had, a new thing including the plug would have cost £4.60.
The green bin has been filled up with garden waste, I've cleaned the cupboard doors in the kitchen, put the decorative bits and bobs back on the window sill in the middle of the stairs, dusted and gone round with the cobweb removal stick. We're about half way to twenty tasks to love where we live and it's looking good!
