When the shoe is on the other foot…


The last few weeks I have been busy with painting and decorating,after taking much advise and quotations form various decoraters I came to the conclusion that those who I liked were way too expensive to recruit and those that were cheaper would not do the job to my satisfaction.So I decided to give up all my spare time and do the decorating my self of course with some help from my partner.

At the moment I am currently working  on the bedroom, the preparation all done the walls  are ready for painting  we went off to the DIY shop . Armed with a shopping list of tools we needed and to choose the paint of course.

Now you may ask, well whats the problem you are only buying paint, ahem !! its was not as easy  as that. Just as women can spend endless  hours walking from department to department just gazing at the clothes, shoes and handbags, men do the same in DIY shops.To think that we would be in and out of the shop in less than an hour was  a mistake. My partner dragged me around each and every isle , be it plumbling, lightening or electrics not forgetting the power tools. Here we spent ages looking at all the new gadgets that would make a DIY enthusiasts life simple or look very impressive in the garage!!!It took me almost an hour to drag him away from  the power tools ,loosing him  on a few occasions on the way to the checkout. I certainly know what it feels like now that the shoe was on the other foot.In future maybe I will be more sympathetic towards his moaning when I drag him shopping with me!  🙂

We still havn’t decided on the paint colour but have picked some sample pots to check out at home.My only worry now is dare I take him back there to make the final purchase???lolz  🙂

  7. Finally colour is sorted we compromised.My partner wanted boring cream and I wanted something more exciting.So back wall is colour teal (for those who dont know what colour that is its a cross between sky blue and turquoise ie like a greeny blue like the ocean and the remaining two walls will be cream
    the 4th wall has floor to ceiling wardrobes in cream!!!)
    Fingers crossed it turns out how I have visualised!!!
