We bought our house knowing there was lots to do, even if most of it is fairly superficial surface stuff. It was the only way we could afford it, and it is a work in progress. Some rooms have no furniture, some are missing furniture, and some have the wrong furniture, we have rusty lights, chipped paint, missing putty, a jungle garden and no fences-and that's ok. We have holes in the eaves, a purple checkerboard kitchen, and I don't always clean as often as I should. We have had leaks, and have made mistakes, and learnt along the way.
Without further ado...
|Empty walls and STILL no bedsides|
|Rusty lightS and multicoloured|
|Steep jungle garden-it's worse from up close-6 foot high...|
|Chipped, flaking, broken windows|
|Roundup starting to wrk|
|Weeds will grow-lawn won't|
|Holes and different rusty lights|
|Can you count the four wall colours|
|More dying jungle|
I guess sometimes I look at perfect houses in perfect blogs and feel a bit down. Hopefully this does the opposite for you!
It's all ok. I'm happy to wait to find the right thing, I'm happy to wait to buy something that I love, we don;t have heaps of extra money lying around at the moment (ahem, wedding...), and all of our little jobs will get done.
What are you happily living with at the moment?
