(I hope this doesn't make too many Americans weep with envy. I once looked into getting a job with Google in Silicon Valley and decided not to even apply when I saw the ridiculously meager American holiday allowance. As a European, it's hard to understand that whole mindset.)
Now we're not sure what to do next. The options on the table are
- trying to find a cheap last-minute holiday
- tidying and decorating the house.
We've lived in this house for four years now, and we've still only got one coat of paint on the kitchen, and on the rear window in the living room we managed to get one curtain up, and the other still needs to be made. It's been like that for three years. It's now got to the point where we both want to do something about this. We could probably also put up a picture or two.
The problem was we got the house to the stage where it looks cozy and lived in, and a good place to live, really, just not entirely finished. Who goes around counting the curtains in a house anyway?
It would just be so dull, and take so much energy. (Did you hear me whine there?) And going on holiday would be a lot more fun. But we have just been away for a week.
What do you think, internet? What would you do?
