We went away at the weekend and were rather spoiled in a
beautiful barn conversion in Gower, South Wales. We were celebrating my dad turning 70; it was lovely spending so
much time together with my dad, mum, brother, my hubbie, the boys and our
Although the biggest highlight was hubbie and I having our
own room again, with all the renovation work here in the new house we are still
stuck in one room waiting on those metal beams to be set in place and further
plastering work to be completed. The
bed in the rental accommodation was big and I felt quite lavish stretched out
contentedly reading my chic lit, the boys gently snoring next door was much
better than all of us crammed in one room!!!
The lovely lady who rented us the barn says she had to do the same with
her children and it was one big adventure.
I wish I shared her enthusiasm; I should stop grumbling and be
grateful. I will hopefully look back in
a few months and put a more positive spin on it all.
focus my mind on how lovely our bedroom will be when it’s done, I am coming up
with ideas of what it will be like, picturing the finished design. One big bedroom instead of two smaller ones
(hence the need for one of the beams), a modern en-suite (to replace the tatty
old one!) and possibly a chaise lounge so I can read whilst admiring
the view from the new lovely windows, if your going to dream though you should
dream BIG! So I will be upgrading our
bed, the one we currently have can then be downgraded to the guest bedroom
whilst I get something more suited for a master suite. At the moment its all wishful thinking as
our budget will be blown on fitting those beams and getting flooring and
paint! But down the line we can finally
think about furniture and its got to be a super king sized one no less.
I love wooden bed
frames and have been looking at BedzRUs as they have a competition
currently running to win your order.
Might be worth a punt! I am
tempted to get back into competitions because winning cash or furniture will be
one way to get the house looking better.
The outside has had a huge overhaul already and is vastly improved
according to the neighbours, but then they do not see how little is going on
inside! Really we should be striping
walls and painting late into the night, but we seem to have lost some of our
decorating momentum. If the builder
comes back tomorrow though we will hopefully renew our interest in our
renovation project. If not I will be
looking at this article to see where I am going wrong
