Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 291 – The Light At The End Of The Tunnel

“The best part is that I’m still here and, because the end is in sight, I treasure it all more.”

Diane Keaton

Another great quote, Spidey. Thank you. Most apt for me again!

As you know, there has been a huge amount of upheaval in my life, recently, what with the changes to work life, with the pandemic still rife, as well as the work happening on our house.

Well, I can’t see the end with the school stuff, or the pandemic, but, at least with the house the END IS IN SIGHT!

We’ve had the first weekend with no builders, decorators, or carpenters ringing the doorbell at 8am, (even on a weekend, yes!) and then proceeding to saw, bash or bang various parts of the house.

It’s not quite finished, yet, but almost. Just carpet to be chosen, and a little bit left to sort out, outside.

Honestly, it’s been an experience, but we have learned a lot, and whenever we need to do something as drastic as this, again, we’ll know what to do and what not to do!

The place is looking lovely, and I’m almost gutted that we are putting it on the market, but I do hope that whoever buys this place, is able to create many happy memories, as we have.

Now the fun starts, looking for our forever home!

So… tell me, do you have something you are really looking forward to?

Have a peaceful Sunday Peeps.  And enjoy your week!

    I want to see house pics–of the redo and of your forever home, once you find it! Looking is such fun. We had our kitchen backsplash and our bathroom redone over the summer and, since those are two spaces that get a lot of use, it makes me SO happy! I know you’ll be glad to get your builders out of your hair. And I love that quote–so apropos right now.

      I will take pics of the full transformation, once the carpets are in!
      So glad to have the house to ourselves right now!
      But the changes are all lovely!

    Congrats on getting so far with the house’s makeover! I am starting to save money toward buying a little frame house and turning it into a second-hand bookstore. Funniest part, I’m saving back a few books to sell (cheaply)so that others will come to love the books I’ve loved!

    Well done, Sis! Congratulations! Now, you all should take at least some hours of celebration. Positive motivation will harden for the next step. If i am informed the right way you have a new lockdown? Here only pieces of information are arriving. We have too much to do with celebrating ourselves. 😉 We are the “Isle of the Glorious” midst all other coronated countries. Who ever will believe in. 😉 Have a beautiful week! Michael

    That is great news, Ritu. It is a bit tough to renovate to sell. You just get everything how you want it and then pass it on to someone else.

      I know… but, to be honest, I think we are ready. We are not spending ridiculous amounts, just making it look good, and ensuring there aren’t any worries to hinder a quick sale, as well.
      Looking forward to making a mark on what we hope will be our forever home, now ❤

    I am looking forward to the end of our horrible fires in California, and to everyone realizing that masks work, so we can make positive strides to tackling the coronavirus. I am looking forward to an end to our political divisiveness…lots to look forward to!

    Yes, Ritu. Builders!! They say there’re. I’m if at a civilised nine on a Saturday, then they turn up at seven thirty! So you throw on a pair of shorts and pretend you’ve been doing your Pilates… and all the time he’s smiling at your one-sided hair… Aaargh!

    I’m all right now… x
