House and Home

I was thinking today about our home, and how far we have come.

Some years ago, I realised that our house was dilapidated.  So we began work, one thing at a time.


We lifted the dusty carpets, varnished the floors.  We painted the walls and skirting boards.


We took down the old curtains, and hung blinds.


We replaced the fireplaces, doors.  Got a new shower.

We took down the extension, and built a new one.


There is still work to be done, but finally it feels as though we have turned a corner.


There is a reason our home had got into a neglected state,.. Depression.

I know this can happen.  There is lethargy, and we had so many problems to concentrate on.  We neglected our surroundings.

But now we have made changes.


I felt better about things tonight.  The house looked well when we put on the lamps.
