I think the winds have changed. Oh yes, that’s right, it’s Spring! Spring has sprung! One of my four favourite seasons 🙂
The change in the air must be the reason why, for the last week or so, I’ve wanted to change everything. EVERYTHING! Furniture in every. single. room of my house(!), our backyard, my body, my eating plan (or lack thereof), my hair, my exercise regime (or lack thereof), craft projects. As I said, everything!
The last fews days has seen me back on Pinterest – to the extreme. Updating my pin boards, deleting boards that I don’t like anymore, pinning cool new stuff. As I’m typing this I have a Banana Cake in the oven – a treat for my FIFO hubby who returns tomorrow! – and I’m just about to wash the dishes (no, I don’t have a dishwasher. I’m a weirdo like that!) But all I can think about is Pinterest and how I can’t wait to sit down and get on it!
If I’m guilty of anything, it’s wanting to try new things. Now I know that’s a good thing, really I do. I like to learn something new, achieve the outcome and then move onto the next thing. But sometimes, I have unfinished, multiple projects on the go which I don’t dig so much.
I’ve been wanting to create a photo wall for the longest time, something like this. A few months ago I sorted out all my digital photos – over 40,000 photos! It was a massive job that took a few weeks to complete. Then I started collating a selection of pics I wanted to print out and put on said photo wall. But have I done it yet? Of course not! (shakes fist)
As for my furniture, I hate my red couch. I love how comfy it is but I hate the colour. One could say I’m over it. It just does not go. I asked Dad, who is an upholsterer, if it would be worth getting it recovered. He seems to think for what I paid for them to just move on and buy something new. He’s good like that. I want something like this.
I feel my house is too “junky”. There’s just too much stuff. I’d be interested to see what visitors to my abode thought or if it’s just me that’s sick of seeing my stuff. I’m not a hoarder (I don’t think) and I love a good clean out. There’s nothing better than throwing out rubbish or giving stuff away. And I do love storage. I would love to be a professional declutterer person. To get into other peoples homes and sort out their stuff. I don’t mean eclectic stuff; my friend Reannon has a great style. I mean people who hoard shit on top of shit. A job like Peter Walsh from Oprah. Dream job! Pick me!
Exercise: urgh, where do I start? I’m not going to bore you because exercise talk can be sooooo boring. But I will say this: last year I was fucking awesome at running! In Sept 2012 I struggled to run for 1 minute, then the following May I ran 12km, NON-STOP, in the HBF Fun Run! What an achievement! And like I said before, once I’ve achieved something I lose interest, hence the 10kilo weight gain! 😦 I’m desperate to lost this weight – where is that drive when I need it?!
Anyway, enough about me. Have things changed for you lately?
If you need me, I’ll be over at Pinterest. Bye for now!
