Oh most wonderous and happy time of the year! THE CLOCKS HAVE GONE BACK! *stays in bed an extra hour*
Seriously I've been so tired lately it's not even funny. It's hard to get to sleep, meaning I'm tired all day at work, I'm snuffly and trying to figure out whether it's because of Oncoming Cold or thanks to the mad rash of Symptoms that have exploded this month... The tension headaches/earaches/neck-and-shoulderache
I did babble on some more after this, mostly about my favourite part of the upcoming holiday season arriving - buying/making presents! Whee! - but IJ ate it. Thank you VERY much. *pokes it grumpily* Anyway, yes. I've just gone and cut back the bushes out the front so I can get in and out of the front door without the Indiana Jones theme playing, so that's done, and I've only got two rooms of the house left undecorated. That's - not a bad record, I don't think. The living room is now a glorious Milk Tray purple with black paintwork and a soft snuggly purple on the other walls, and I don't think I'll ever get over how amazing this fact is. Purple room! And it looks awesome! My living room can cosplay as a Decepticon base! EEE!
I've also taken down the big cork noticeboard in the hall, and the shelf under it after some deliberation, so it looks bigger in there. I might leave it like that after I sneak some wallpapering in before the landlord can paint over that peeling wallpaper. >_> I call it saving him from himself, frankly. And besides, the same wallpaper on one wall on the landing and in the downstairs hall with the blue paintwork and cream walls to link it all up will look rather lovely, I think. (Mum did make oh-no noises when I made a vague allusion to doing Something to the front bedroom, saying we'd already painted the one non-papered wall, but given that said wall was painted with lumpy, drying paint and looks pretty rough in more than one sense of the word, I'm probably going to constructively ignore that.)
