Home Improvements

I am getting twitchy.

The summer holiday is fast approaching. During the 6 week break I will be spending more time in my flat and I am desperate to pick up a paintbrush and redecorate my living room so I can relax in my own living space.

However I do not own the property in which I live but rent it from a private landlord. This is a bit of a sore point.

Due to a leaking roof, the wall of my living room is streaked where water streams down from cracks in the ceiling when it rains heavily. There are also patches where plaster is flaking off. Even if none of this was an issue, the paintwork itself is very much in need of a recoat.

I resent the idea of spending money on someone else’s property even if it is me who has to put up with the décor looking a little tired.

I will resist the urge to indulge my inner interior designer for now and focus on saving my pennies for my mortgage and a summer holiday with FFOMC.
