Sunny, back ache update

Hi I’m lying in bed with Evelyn, I got a really sore back. I don’t know what I’ve done. But it might have to do with being with the kids alone all week. And I’ve also been working on removing wallpaper and painting the stairs for the 350th time.

It’s super hot in Sweden as in many other places at the moment. So it’s hard to know what to do. But I seem to have managed to overdo it anyway. I’ve got the TENS machine on so I hope that will help.

We bought a carpet for the stairs and upstairs hallway. But to be able to install it, we need to fix the walls and the stairs first. If we get that done we’ve finally finished with renovating the downstairs (except bathroom and laundry which is not projects we’re planning on anytime soon). Then we can finally do our bedroom and the kids upstairs, so excited for that!

Writers block & Dancing Cranes

Oh I know, I know… my blogging is terrible. I go through doubts that it’s even worth having a blog as I don’t tend to it the way I would want. Reasons for this is habit I guess, having a day job and two small kids. The last two arguments should also be my reason to blog – sharing my life. But oh well, maybe the habit will come eventually. Another reason I really want to get into blogging again is that I’m convinced writing is a terrific habit to have. Especially writing for an audience.

One of the things from our life I want to share is our renovation projects at our house. Everything is going pretty slow and that’s ok with us, as we’re doing everything by ourselves so we need to cope and also for financial reasons.

In spring already I bought this wallpaper on sale that I really wanted. It’s been showing up all over the blog sphere in Sweden, but I’m not just falling for a trend, I’m genuinely in love with the feeling of this pattern! This week we got it up! I’m so happy now. It was our first pattern match wallpaper and we made it! The area (hallway) is not finished yet though and won’t be for a while so I’ll keep you in the loop. If I manage to keep this blog thing up that is.

The wallpaper is Dancing Cranes from Engblad & co, if anyone is wondering.
