Lots more to go, but still …….My eldest’s room has been redecorated 😀 One wall has a beautiful paper with big soft roses in gentle pinks and grey and the other walls are a soft matt grey. It looks very chic indeed. Her carpet gets fitted on Saturday, along with the tiny landing, and her new wardrobe arrives. That should be fun to get up the stairs, past the stairlift and round a very tight corner…..eek!! I am glad I’m not doing the actual manouvering!
Next on the list will be my room. Just as I have everything organised as well But it has been decided that as this was my birthday present from last year, and for multiple reasons it hasn’t happened yet, that it really should be done before my birthday this year LOL. That is coming up next month, so……..I am currently giving many glances to 4 little paint swatches to make a final decision on the colour.
My first choice is fine in artificial light but looks quite dark in daylight. I have no idea why, but it does. Second choice is still kinda dark……so third choice is looking like the winner at the moment.
I had a look at different wallpapers, and Littlun has brought home samples from where she works, but……I’m fussy, I guess. Before I got FM, I loved to use stencils. Now, I just can’t do that kind of thing anymore 😦 BUT….my room will have an element of individuality about it. Slightly wimsical, perhaps, but very ‘me’. I shall of course take photos of the end result to show you 🙂
I am keeping the curtains I have up now. They were one of my first ‘adult’ purchases when I was 19/20 years old. They were stored away for many years, but they are still good, and I still love them 😀
I will be so glad to get rid of this hideous dark green that I have lived with for so long. Green is not a colour I like in decor, at all, and absolutely not in a bedroom.
Then it’s the turn of the hall, stairs and landing. Not a full make-over, just another coat of the same paint to freshen it up, and all the woodwork is getting a coat of an uber light grey. So light it is practically white. BUT it shouldn’t yellow like white gloss does.
I will think about the kitchen and lounge when all this is over and done with!!
I had a ‘kickback’ flare up day on Monday, so spent the day in bed just resting, and felt better for it. But generally my energy and pain levels have been much improved this last week. Whether that’s the improvement in the weather, or a result of the Co-enzyme Q10 I am taking, I have no idea.
Now, when I say improvement – anything was better than where I was, which was largely bedbound for the last year. I have been trying to improve things for about 6 months but it’s been one step forward and two back every time. But I am feeling human again – instead of just a useless ball of pain.
This last week, I have cooked a few times, washed up, hoovered, and (a massive step forward this) been awake from when I wake up until bedtime. I’ve been able to sit on the sofa long enough to watch films, and I even ……wait for it…….dried and styled my hair after washing it *faints*.
My improved quality of sleep is responsible for a lot of this, I am sure, and speaking of which – time for me to get my head down.
Nighty night xxx
