Theres so much that Paul and I want to get done around the house, sadly though as money doesn’t grow on trees we will have to bide our time with the DIY project list and learn to live with the cloudy windows and eighties style kitchen for the time being.

I don’t think that watching back to back episodes of My Dream Home really helps the situation as the more opportunity for development we see the more we find ourselves discussing ‘what could be’ in our own home.

Should we happen to fall upon £40k without taking out a some form of finance , winning the lottery or selling a kidney then at least we have the ideas and plans at the ready for the go ahead.…

There seems to be never-ending ‘DIY yet to do’ lists mounting up in my mind. We have so much to get finished in and around the house that it’s beginning to irk me somewhat.

I know that Rome wasn’t built in a day and all that but we have now been let down by numerous companies promising to come along and quote us for windows and doors around the house. It seems that our business cannot be of importance to them as they have failed to turn up and those that have visited have neglected from giving us a quote at all!…

Thinking back to when we first moved into our ‘forever home’ there was so much that needed to be done in terms of DIY. We have been here almost five years now and whilst we have worked hard to modernise as much as possible there are still some spaces in need of a major update.

Whether it’s spending more time in the house and therefore being more aware of my surroundings or if it’s simply having children I’m not sure.…

As part of the New Year I decided to take on some new challenges, one of which being the ‘Liked And Loved Linky‘ which I will be joining to share all the things that I have liked and loved throughout the month.

I really like to reflect upon the positives in life, as you know I already list a few of my #LittleLoves each week, from now on I will be expanding this by creating a kind of ‘happy list’ towards the end of each month.

So without further ado, here are the things that I have #LikedAndLoved in January.

New Years Day

For once I managed to make a decent festive meal without having a melt down.…
