Keepin’ the dream alive….

put your hand up if you are sick of hearing about my new kitchen and the plans!

I know it has been going on forever – over a year now in fact!  Still I WILL get there. Have spoken to a couple of draftsmen this week and am hopeful of getting someone one in the not too distant future to get going on the plans for the wall to come down.  Meanwhile today I put two sets of purple curtains on layby. The new lounge/kitchen (or should I call it open plan living space?) is going to be painted light purple – nothing too ‘in your face’ but not so pale it isn’t recognisable as purple either and I had thought that purple curtains would be nightmarish to find.  But I found them in spotlight and out for half price too. Now finding curtains is a big deal as my front window is 3m long and it is usually damn hard to find ANYTHING to go on them let alone something NICE.  So keepin’ the dream alive – will be going to make regular payments off new curtains. Only two sets as the small window in the kitchen is being bricked up and the above the sink one isn’t going to get curtains but might get some lace/voile.

one another note….I still haven’t been able to find my sewing machine cord since S and his mum cleaned up the house while I was away – have spent quite a bit of time sorting stuff and looking with no luck.  I have Brett’s smock and library bag cut out ready to sew but can’t sew anything… (given that I have never liked my sewing machine and it doesn’t like me much) I threw a tanty and bought a new one today! Spotlight had a big sale so I now have a new machine for just under $200. …..

I have been a little naughty – in the past week have spent $200 on Brett’s glasses, $250 on mine (ok both necessary), $250 on a new tom tom and now the sewing machine…..oh and that screaching sound????? that was just me putting the breaks on all non kitchen/wall removal spending for a while now!
