I don't know about you, but despite not having a job or children at home, I always seem to be on the go and never really just sit down and enjoy our home.
5 months ago hubby and I went to Ikea to buy curtain poles, it was touch and go if either of us would come out of there alive after hubby called me a 'f**king psychopath' and we came away empty handed.
I went out on my own 3 months ago and bought the poles we needed, where they sat in the conservatory until hubby finally put them up yesterday.....it was a smooth process, this time I managed to keep my opinions to myself, although it was an effort to do so :-)
I spent most of the morning, hanging and re hanging the curtains until I got them just right, but due to the way the room has been built, hubby couldn't get the pole any higher, so the curtains will have to come back down and be shortened and then re hung.
It's made a real difference to the room, keeping it much cooler during the day, apart from putting the step ladder away, we now finally have curtains up in every room, each room is how we want it.
Apart from keeping up with the housework, I'm hoping I will now just sit and relax more in the house during the day and finally get on with those little craft projects I've been collecting for the last few years.
