MAYDAY!!!!!

Well, perhaps not as dire as a Mayday call, but the merry month of May sees us have the painters in, so life as we know it will be suspended for a while. I am wondering about our twin passions for books and music, why they have filled our house with treasures that at the moment are just so much stuff that needs to be carted around the house. My other passion for colour schemes and colourful ceramics also adds to the confusion. I think we are extremely brave and foolhardy!
The SRE returned from his travels yesterday, and has kindly decided to take half the day off, while we get organised for the painters. We are lucky to have a company guest house that we can stay in for the duration, so at least we can sleep and eat in comfort.
The last load of curtains goes into the washing machine. The computer is shut down till further notice. All your good wishes for my survival and sanity are required!
Au revoir, my friends

Thanks, Neera! Moving house, and that too across countries, is probably even more stressful! But some things just need to be done.........

Painting the house? Salutations...!!! I've decoded to change the house when possible rather that paint it. wise decision No??

@A Day in the Life of a Mom: Yes, I'm enjoying my stay in the guest house with very attentive, courteous staff. But I am in and out of my home too, a little supervision is required. The fun will be in putting a million things back in the right place! @Hip grandma: If only...... Not that changing houses is any easier!

Painting houses. Always a huge task. One does wonder at the stuff that turns up. How much, how much. A company guest house does sound nice though, and restful.

@Banno: So good to have you back! As of now, the guest house is our sanctuary while our home is an unimaginable mess with clean, freshly painted walls!!!!!

And at the end of all the hard work, a beautifully painted house, just the way you wanted it... That is one thought to help survive the madness!
Good luck, Dipali and hope it all goes well.

How good is the idea of coming back to a newly painted house and then posting pictures on your blog? Maybe 'before' and 'after' pictures too :)

dipali said...

@Nitya: Yes, the clean walls are happy making!
@indianhomemaker: Too late for that, as there are no pictures of the dirty walls! The house is much the same, it just feels a lot 'lighter', in more ways than one!
