My loving husband tells me today it's five years since we committed to buying this house. Fancy that! We haven't done much to it, except replaced the oven.
We still live with an indoor brick wall, look regularly at where the paint tends to peel on the kitchen ceiling, and consider how we really do need to put up curtains as well as the blinds that came with the house.
If its been home for this long, maybe we should start working on making it feel more homelike. Since we both have the clutter gene, this is more complicated.
