When we bought our home we did not put any money on the mortgage to do the place up. The kitchen and front room we have done up and we are doing the hall. The bathroom is an absolute hole. We have tried to do what we can. The plaster isnt very good above the door. Neither OH nor I are DIYers nor do we have the money to pay someone to do it. I have noticed that I try not to lay in the bath as I look around me and I get upset.
I have a home, a wonderful husband, wonderful daughter and family, plenty of food decent wages and a job and here I am worrying about the state of my bathroom.
When I put it into context it doesnt feel half as bad. I have decided I am going to have to just continue to put money away specifically towards doing my home up and it takes as long as it takes but I am not going to "bung it on my mortgage."
I will just have to lay back in that bathroom and dream zzzzzzzzz
