Ugh

Do not buy an old house that needs renovating! Unless you have enough money to pay someone else to do it. Or unless you want to teach yourself to be a jack of all trades and love dust. We did and didn't have the former option so had to settle for the second.

Our bedroom. That floor had FOUR layers of carpet, lino and glued-on paper(?) to
remove and then a nice, thick layer of paint for good measure. That was fun..

We're nearing completion now though and so I hope to be spending more time on doing the things I love and posting about them here (in a warm and comfortable house!) Have a good week - I hope it doesn't include DIY :)

  1. Yes but just think how proud you will feel to know you've done it all yourself .. I'm impressed!

    1. Thanks Nicky, that's true! I don't think we'd buy such an old wreck again though - it takes over your life. And what no one tells you: everything takes longer than you think!
