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.
