I just love all things nice...
I sometimes look for the "hang up" button on a normal telephone receiver
Boyfriends who call themselves architects PRICELESS
Investment or waste?...
Part of being away on holiday has beed dedicated to checking up on my attic flat, since my tenants had just finished their contract and I have been saving- to -and- planning-to re-decorate (with help from some Mydeco friends :)). I'm going to have a good three months back home before the baby is born, plenty of time for shopping and painting.
The place needs a good makeover, not only in terms of decoration, there are a lot of little things that need to be improved/changed or at least I WANT them improved.
Anyway, the discussion with my husband is this, he says that, since the place is going to be rented again, there is no point in making changes or redecorating, putting new furniture, re-painting... I have to agree that the place "can do" without it.
BUUUUT I have put so much time and effort in this place, (it is just mine, I bought it before I even knew hubby...) that for me it's like a matter of pride. I don't want my place to look so shabby and empty, I don't care if I dont live there! Besides I think a house which is not well taken-care of, deteriorates quickly... even if I won't be enjoying the improvements myself.
So what do I do? I don't want to seem like I'm throwing away money, but I hate that everytime I get a chance to see this place I end up feeling like I have nothing worth it.
Well just ranting here sorry...If you care to give me your opinion I would like to hear what you think, specially if you have been in a similar situation of disagreement with your dear ones...
