DIY disaster

Much of this weekend has been spent decorating the hall, landing and staircase. I have virtually finished applying lining paper to all the walls and we will soon be able to paint. We are desperately trying to get the house in good order in case we have to sell or rent it in the coming months. Although we have lived in the house for over eleven years there is still much to do. I can see the next month being very hectic. It's ironic to think that after living in a constant state of DIY for the past eleven years we are now about to end up with a lovely home which in all likelihood we will not be able to enjoy. I have vowed that next time we buy a property we either buy a building plot and erect a kit house or buy a property that needs nothing doing to it. I can't face another ten years of DIY!!
Received an email today about a new home education action group - AHEd. Just debating whether to sign up as a member/supporter. Anyone interested in becoming a member and/or supporter of AHEd should email enquires@ahed.org.uk.
Tonight we all sat down in front of the TV and watched the Ray Mears' Wild Food, we found it fascinating. I am looking forward to The Truth About Food, which starts on Thursday BBC2 9.00pm - 10.00pm.
