We had a mirror break last week - I think we break one every 7 years or so just to keep the bad luck coming really :)
It was a mirror that hung on the bathroom door and so I had John carefully remove the mirror itself out of the wood ( kind of ornate ) frame and painted it gold.
John says - What are you going to put in it?
Suzan says - Nothing - I'm going to hang it up empty - along with a few others
John says - Oh c'mon now - that's going to look ridiculous.
Suzan says - No it won't - it's a look - I've done it before on mantels
John says - Well that's one thing - hanging it up is going to look ridiculous
( he repeats himself - often )
I need more frames - small ones to fill out the empty spaces but it's a great start, right?
John says - This looks even more ridiculous than I thought it would
Suzan says - Of course it does sweetheart
John says - WE'RE GOING TO KILL OURSELVES COMING DOWN THE BLOODY STAIRS !
Now he just may have a point there - these are the worst stairs in the history of house building I'm sure. They're narrow with a very dangerous turn at the halfway mark - I've been begging John to put up a banister for the 2 years since we bought this
Suzan says - I've asked you a hundred times to put a banister up !
John says - Well I was going to do it this month
Suzan says - Of course you were sweetheart
John says - WHAT ARE WE SUPPOSED TO DO - HOLD ON TO AN EMPTY FRAME ON OUR WAY DOWN ?
John says - It's a nuthouse - a complete nut house
Suzan says - PLEASE DON'T HOLD ON TO THE EMPTY FRAMES - YOU MIGHT BREAK ONE OF THEM !
I came across a before photo last week and almost died WAS I BRAVE OR WHAT? I mean really can you believe we bought this place ?
I seriously think I had a temporary loss of sanity - it's the only way I can explain it -
AND it's been 2 years and we're far from finished !
Have a wonderful day all.............
