Who let the dogs out?

Woof, Woof, Woof, Woof

Now there’s an ear worm you aren’t going to get rid of in a hurry!

So we all know lock down has been a little strange, but for me there has been one event that stands out in my head and I just have to share it with you.

I was planning to redecorate my downstairs washroom, as Hyacinth Bucket would refer to it, as we’ve been here a couple of years and it’s been on the list of to do’s – you know that list? The one that just keeps getting longer and longer and when you’ve ticked one thing off another five have since been added…

Anyway I digress slightly…

So, I collect my tools, get the bucket of paste and paper ready. I’m one that likes to get everything organised and have a clear space to work in, unlike my lovely hubby who works around things in a space and moves it all as he goes along – drives me slightly crazy at times but they do say opposites attract. After having done all this I decide to go and make a cuppa and grab a biscuit, oops there goes the healthy eating regime. Anyhow, after having a little break and getting side tracked a little, it was half an hour later, I come back to find everything gone!

Yes, I mean everything! Weird. So I call up to hubby, “any idea where the decorating stuff I put ready is, hun?”, “yep, up here” he answers, to which I reply “eh?”.

So I trot upstairs. Alright, maybe not trot up so much, especially with all the Covid calories I’ve been consuming on board, but you get the gist. What do I find when I get upstairs? Hubby has started putting up the wallpaper in our bedroom.

“This is not something unusual” I hear you say. Well, think again. I am now calling this my husband’s mid-life crisis wallpaper you’ll see what I mean by the pictures below.

So there goes my dream of a refined, sophisticated, relaxing and grown up bedroom, with lovely Joules bed linen and sophisticated accessories. I’m now sharing it with… Well… Take a look…

To be honest with you I am very grateful for hubby for doing the hard work as wallpapering isn’t one of my favourite jobs to do, along with painting and housework. I’ve just had a eureka moment and been inspired to do a post on the lazy girls guide to housework… Yes, I’m essentially quite lazy and would do nowt all day if I could except sip Gin and bask in the sun! And in my dreams this is happening. I applaud hubby’s enthusiasm for doing a job that he professes to dislike, and he did a bloody good job of it!

I’m sure it won’t be up for too long, so I can live without my super grown up boudoir for a little while. At least it makes us smile when we look at it even if it may not make for a super relaxing sleep!

So, lovely readers out there, don’t leave your decorating kit whilst you have a naughty biscuit break or you may just face a decorating surprise…

Oh, and if you were wondering this is more what I envisioned for the bedroom. I’m wondering if its ever meant to be?
