I've been slowing getting my house in order, and not in a metaphorical sense.
The LiveLagom project with IKEA has helped me become aware of wasted energy and how small changes can make a big difference. Sheepskin rugs and bright light bulbs are my new best friends.
I also managed to get the notoriously grubby hall, stairs and landing painted and bought new prints to hang. It brings a little bit of happiness to me multiple time a day.
Then this week I had a delivery from the fabulous Wayfair (more on that later) that helped me cosy up my bedroom into a haven or loveliness.
So what's next?
Well back to that waste energy. Unfortunately there is a cool breeze blowing from my bedroom window into my room. And no, the window isn't open. In fact there are drafts coming through all my windows, and seeing as I'm broke and renting - there's no way there are new ones going to be fitted any time soon. So the next best thing? Curtains and blinds.
The problem is that as soon as I started looking for blinds on the VELUX site I realised there was a slight issue.
I am no longer picturing new blinds.
I am now imagining an attic conversion...a gorgeous new bedroom for me...which would free up my room for an au pair...which would allow me to get a new job.... with a big salary... so I could buy a new house... which would mean no more renting... which would clearly show I had my life sorted... and then I really would have my house in order....
And all from a few blinds.
Who'd have though it...?
