I have a few projects on the go at the mo, and I'm sharing because that's always good motivation for me to actually finish them.
Last weekend, my lovely husband sanded and sealed our patio set - phase one of prettifying the balcony...
I also spent a huge amount of time (something ridiculous like 16 hours...and counting) on reorganizing our files. I've always used binders for all our paperwork, and they're always organized because I am mildly anal about sorting. The problem? They keep growing and growing, and the binders don't match and it all just looks fugly. Gah.
I'm also planning to give the bookcase a bit of love - I'm thinking light duck egg with gold accents (since it's probably going to end up in the living room - read more about that here).
That lamp on the left there will also be getting a face lift, and you might notice the blue patch on the wall - that's because I'm also in the midst of painting that room.
Finally (and onto a not-decorating-related topic)... I also clocked a good few hours this weekend putting together my application for US citizenship. While I was at it, I was rifling through all the letters, photos and other paperwork we submitted years ago to prove that our relationship was legit (I entered the US on a fiancée visa; J is American), and found this little gem - a prediction of J and me in 2013:
Lastly, today is my BFF's due date! Can't wait to meet her new baby, whenever he or she decides it's time to come out!
