I’ve moved house before… sure, it wasn’t a comfortable or fun experience, but it wasn’t this bad. I guess what I’ve never done is the whole ‘preparing a property to get the best possible price’ move. I have to tell you, it stinks.
Basically, it involves spending some money and a load of time making things as you wish they were while you lived here. I’m really going for it. Every surplus item is being boxed up and put in storage, everything is repaired, the shed roof is re-felted, a new fence has been erected, the garden is cut back, the lawns are mowed weekly, the kitchen is repainted and cleaned within an inch of its life waiting for new flooring.
The bathroom is similar.
The bedrooms need to look like you only need lay your head on the soft pillows to ensure a good night’s sleep. The wardrobes are being cleared of bulk so that each item sits neatly on its hanger, all cupboards sorted, all paperwork sorted. All books, CDS, games, equipment sorted and stored or donated to charity.
There is still tons to be done… loft (eeek, the amount of stuff up there), conservatory (transformation into elegant dining room), masses of paper junk in files, drawers, chests and the outside of the house needs painting and all this before I even address ‘kerb appeal’ as my mother said.
I’m getting up each day thinking ‘surely there is a little less to be done today, than yesterday’ but each job seems to uncover even more new jobs to do.
When it’s done, there will be no hidden areas of junk. Each and every door and cupboard can be opened to see the neatly arranged contents, each surface will shine and look fresh.
And then somebody else will hopefully buy it and it will be their house. I can’t think of a suitable analogy, but while I feel proud of the progress I’m making, I also feel sad.

Addams does come up with some seriously inventive and detailed designs and the new release Cerisse Bohemian Bikini (or lingerie, depends on what you’re up to) is no different. You can change each and every tiny detail via HUD, stone colours, metal colours, more colours 🙂 The Hara V-Neck top comes with options which you can wear over your bikini or options you wear without a bikini and is dead casual. The resulting combination is really rather boho and I like it.
Be forewarned, both the bikini top and panties are see-through without an option to make them opaque, so it’s a bit risque!
Here’s a few pics including a ‘well lit, no shit’ shot…
Will someone please bring me a donut? I did yell ‘DONUT’ twice and I still don’t have one. Thank you. In the meantime, let’s dance. In it, I show you top off and top on, so you can see the full design.
