I've been struggling for blog post inspiration lately. We haven't worked that much on the house (a combination of attempting to have a life and helping my parents with a big cull and house move) and I've also been really tired and lazy lately. So much so, I don't even feel the need to apologise for it. I have been thinking a lot lately and want to start a new series to help me stay motivated to blog.

G20 Cultural Celebrations

SJ and I took a break from working on the house last week to head into the city to see the lights and displays for the G20 Cultural Celebrations.

I signed up to 'design' one of the Colour Me lights displays online, so I was camera ready at 7:08pm when my purple and green design lit up the city. I don't think there any slots left now to submit designs but you can still have a play here:

Decorating...A new table

We swapped our dining room table with a cousin over the weekend. She's moving to a much smaller place and liked the look of my cheap tiny one.

Decorating...Shaggy Rag Rug

Since I figured I wasn't busy enough with all our renovations, I've also been working a little side project....I'm making a rug for our living room.

I started during the first few weeks we owned the house, before the asbestos was removed and we couldn't do much. After that I worked on it while we were staying at Mum and Dads, particularly during the week we had to wait for the floors to cure.

Since then I work on it every few nights depending on what else I've got going on (at the moment, cleaning a lot of paint flecks off the floor because I wasn't as careful as I should have been painting the skirtings!).
