As most of you already know, my husband and I bought a house earlier this year and have recently been busy renovating it before we move in…and if you didn’t know that, well, you do now.
If you’ve ever done any renovations yourself, then you know how much fun they can be (and yes, you do detect some sarcasm in my voice). But now I want you to factor in a language barrier, cultural differences (apparently after the renovations are finished and before we can move in, we have to set off fireworks inside the new house…which seems to defeat the purpose of trying to clean the place and freshen paint and everything, but what can I do?), and the fact that I live in a small, backwoods town in a country that decorates their houses about as well as a cat plays Scrabble. Choices are somewhat limited here, one could say. Fun, huh?
Progress has been made in the new house, though. The kitchen and both bathrooms were torn out, and then refinished with tiles. Kitchen cupboards and ceilings should be next, as well as bathroom fixtures, and then some paint and furniture.
But, my dear readers, you’re in luck! I know you’ve been wondering, so you’re actually going to get a sneak peek into our new house right now. Hold onto your hats and enjoy!
And yes, all of that was a lie – you didn’t really think I was going to let you see it before it’s all finished, did you?!
