The list that keeps on growing....

I love going back over my blog posts to see what was happening this time last year.

Sometimes it makes me smile and sometimes it just frustrates the hell out of me.

Like this one for example. My before and after post of the new kitchen which included a list of jobs we still needed to complete.

A few jobs left on the to do list still....
Replace blinds in the bedrooms because they drive me crazy!
New curtains in lounge area
New light shades throughout
New wall unit
New stainless steel fridge
Replace outdoor railing/deck
New bathroom!  

Well guess what.  That list has grown and I have completed only ONE thing in the whole 12mths, and that was a new fridge.  GAH!  the list will never end.....  We did get a new lounge though which wasn't on the list and made over the laundry and got a new washing machine, also a big bed for Mr 4 and rearranged his room. So I think the change in list all the time is delaying the process!

Paint cubes for bedside tables in boys room

7/8/2014 - Another year has gone by and still the list has grown. We are finally getting a new bathroom though so at least that is a step in the right direction.  I also have a couple of new light shades to try out and see if they work.

15 July 2015 - And here we are yet another year gone and you will be pleased to hear a few things have been checked off lately. Only took me two years from original plan but HEY, we are getting there.


Replace blinds in the bedrooms because they drive me crazy!  (ALL DONE!)
New curtains in lounge area (ALL DONE!)
New light shades throughout (nearly all done!)
New wall unit and TV mounted on wall - next job on the list
Replace outdoor railing/deck - one day
New bathroom(DONE!)
Paint exterior laundry door white (Dang, I totally forgot that job. Must get the kids onto that.)
Paint cubes for bedside tables in boys room (Boys did this job for me. AWESOME!)
Holiday to Adelaide (did that, want to do again though now :( )
New car (Oh the dream!)  We DID get a new car!
We also got a wardrobe for Small BZ's bedroom

So the continuing list now leaves us with just a few jobs, but of course I am always adding in a few extras (like I do!) Let's see how many years it takes to achieve these little jobs...

New wall unit and TV mounted on wall - next job on the list DONE!
Replace outdoor railing/deck - one day
Paint exterior laundry door white (Dang, I totally forgot that job. Must get the kids onto that.)
New barstools for kitchen bench (SOME little boy wrecked one)
Holiday to Adelaide - did that, want to do again though now :(
Corner wall unit
New bed for main bedroom

Instead I have got 2x new bedside tables, and some nice little nicknacks to update the "Hall" table.  I always seem to get distracted elsewhere...


What's on your wish list at the moment?
