Sometimes fashion takes a back step in my life and this last week has been one of those.
I’m putting my house on the market! After many years rattling around, sometimes with house-guests and other times on my own, it is time to let go of all the memories and look forward to new beginnings; a fresh start and an adventure into the unknown.
Having watched enough reality DIY shows, it is daunting everything that you need to do, in order to get your house ready for sale, or perhaps I am just really fussy. Lately I go everywhere with a pen and paper writing copious amounts of lists (that I keep losing and then have to start again); often check the weather forecast, hoping there won’t be rain as house painting and landscaping was top of the list. I never thought of myself as a perfectionist but I do have high standards and trying to get everything exactly how I want just isn’t easy.
I know it is only going to get worse once the open homes start. I have all my fingers and toes crossed that on auction day 25th March 2015 I will be celebrating the start of a new life; which includes looking for a new house (which will have plenty of room for my clothes; a high-pitched roof; sun-drenched deck and a park nearby so I can go running).
I’ll keep you updated in regards to how the house-selling goes and if I’m popping a bottle of champagne come auction day. Next week I’ll share with you some of my favourite pieces of furniture and accessories.
