Window dressing a very dull tale

interior design

This will be a short blog sorry. I can dress it up because well we have blinds.

They came with the house and are in every room. They look like wood and suit tha house. I maybe would prefer plantation white wooden blinds but it’s not a big deal.

We have no curtains.

None

Not even in the bedroom. I did try to convince Gav that they would soften the bedroom room but he wasn’t interested and it’s been 5 years now and it doesn’t bother me.

The blinds let in a lot of light in the day and block it nicely at night.

It works for us.

I live in the suburbs so our views are t gorgeous. Our bathroom has the best view and that’s of the garden. Something I would definitely change if I had a lot of money.

At the moment my garden is a hub for dahlias all growing in their pots. This view makes me happy and every time they grow I shriek a little.

But this blog isn’t about views it’s about window dressing.

I am definitely not going to win any awards for that!

A challenge too far……. Nah I can do it

Personal Experience, Planning

So this Monday I decided that I don’t have enough in my life. Perhaps this may turn out to be a challenge too far, but I think I can do it.

I have a full time Job and wedding to plan. As well as trying to spend time with friends and family and my partner. Working on my fitness and try not to stuff my face with a giant bars of Galaxy chocolate. My skin doesn’t like it so why do I do it to myself?

Bullet Journal 30 Day blog challenge

It’s crazy.

My blog is a year old and I can’t tell you how proud of it I am. I am going to ask my Graphic designer friend to have a look at it and see where we can improve to better basic standard. So my blogs don’t run in a continuous line. See lots of things to do.

The Challenge

So with all this going on I decided that I was going to challenge myself to a 30 day blog challenge. So everyday in April will be a new blog post. This is going to be hard. I am going to have to push myself to complete this challenge. The writing won’t be so tricky but getting the photos write will be.
