Just a quickie vanilla post. Made me smile anyway. My husband doesn't really talk much about this life, just gets on with it (happily, I think). This week as a present for Valentines
My darling husband said he would paint our bedroom. I have been wanting it done for ages but there always seems something more important to do. Over the last couple of days he has been decorating. We decided to paint three walls in a nice gentle colour and have a feature wall in a darker colour.
All went well until he started the fourth wall, the one that was going to jazz our bedroom up and turn it into a special place. Hmm, I hated it almost instantly, it was too bright, too bold, too jazzy!!!
"What do you think?", he said "Do you like it?"
"No", I whispered. "It's just not us".
AT that moment our son came for a visit ( dinner actually I think!!). His words on the paint:
"It's not really you two is it? You are a bit more subtle than that, It's just a bit much...
"Do you think we are boring?" I asked him quite loudly.He was at this point, on a sticky wicket, and in the knowledge that he was hoping I would feed him any minute he tried very hard to say the right thing.
" Oh no not at all, it's just a bit too bright. No mum, but it is a bit tacky for you two, that's all"
He wouldn't think we were boring if he knew what happened in that bedroom but I could hardly defend myself, especially with my husband smirking in the background "Us boring, surely not!!"
So today the room is finished and my beloved husband laughed and said
"Who would have thought it my sweet. Fancy us painting our bedroom VANILLA. Doesn't seem right now in the spirit of our new lifestyle does it? Maybe we should have had a red wall !!!
Cheeky devil, and then he proceeded to give me my second spanking of the week just to christen our new room!
I am a lucky girl though , what a great Valentines present. I am sure I must have one of these:
I hope everyone is having a good week.
For all my fellow English bloggers I hope you are not suffering with the floods, we are so lucky where we live but it is very distressing to see and I hope you are all safe and well.
lots of love to everyone,
