- We still haven't been to a bunch of really local-ish places - day trip locations
- Those kids curtains are not going to sew themselves
- The kids room is not going to redecorate itself
- Neither will the wretched bathroom I dislike so much
I sat. I thought. I called Fen back. Our conversation went something like this:
Me: Why don't we stay here and go to Windsor finally? And maybe an overnight trip to Brighton or the Isle of Wight? Perhaps Cantebury?
Fen: What happened to Amsterdam and Brussels?
Me: I want to paint the kids room and the bathroom. Let's finally get it done. I won't be happy until it's done.
Big, long, pregnant pause.
Fen: We'll see.
Oh, we'll see all right. I did all my research for the day trips, priced out the materials for both rooms, including new bedding for the kids, and new rugs/blinds for each room. I also did a detailed itemized cost for week's stay in Amsterdam. I've shared it with Fen and we are now happily in agreement.
Guess what we're doing for Easter? That's right folks, roll up your sleeves 'Cross the Pond is getting busy redecorating. Finally. Anyone know where I can get some great, whimsical light fixtures for the kids room?
