A welcome distraction

Ok so as much as i would like to say everything is ok and im over it, i cant as that would be bollocks, but i know its going to take time especially in dealing with the issues about my mum and my insecurity..but steps are being taken to deal with it.

Im not avoiding it, but all that stuff is going in my private journal, anyway im sure you would much rather hear about my broken tiles...yeah you know you want to.

There in the bathroom, 3 of them, as i sit relaxing in the bath i can see them, right in front of me and they are taunting me, i cant relax, its irritating me, so im on a mission to have the bathroom redecorated....ok i could just settle for re-tiling but i do love major room make-overs.

The problem is i do tend to go a bit overboard, the kitchen for example was just meant to be a new kitchen fitted....it ended up being extended, new flooring..basically the whole room....and the contractors hated me..coz i kept changing my mind about plans...one electrician threatened to walk off the job.....i ended up having to apologise.

I have been banned (for some time now) from buying Good Home magazine, because yeah i do go ott, but i see all these wonderful designs, room plans etc and i get ideas......they all panic when i get ideas..because it usually means disruption.

Its not that i like disruption, i dont..but to get the end result you have to put up with it...so now im scouring the internet looking at bathrooms....i have worked out that we could lose some of the bedroom as its big enough...and have the bathroom bigger.....

because those 3 tiles have to go!

  2. Home improvement projects have a way of taking over everything, don't they? Daddy decided its probably cheaper to just move than renovate. Because, it's never one room. If you do the bathroom, well then the bedroom must be updated. From the bedroom goes the hallways typically flooring, even if you avoid other rooms...then there's the entry way..the living room...dining room..which connects through a doorway to the kitchen that sits adjacent to the sun and family rooms...back around to the study...

  3. They start my Kitchen on Thursday. I can't wait!!!!
    This is after I already did my entire basement and 2 new bathrooms.

    So I hear you and yes- things have a way of multiplying once you start!

    Blame it on the tiles!

    1. lol

      It takes over, get one idea and it escalates because one thing changing can impact something else..thats my theory anyway.

  6. LoL Tori,

    Isn't it funny how our original plans just keep getting bigger and bigger? I can think of a lot of projects I wouldn't mind doing round here come to think of it.

  7. Lol. I really hate to think what would happen to me if I suggested losing a bit of the bedroom to kitchen expansion...
    It might be best not to lead with "Because those three tiles have to go!" Just sayin, lol.
    Good luck!
