Before I came down with the lurgy last week I did make some more progress on fixing up my home. Clearing out the boxes definitely helped. Still have a couple here full of papers and bits and pieces that need to be sorted but my bedroom is feeling so spacious.
After my guests left yesterday, I was putting the sofabed back to sofa
mode and decided to turn it around to sit against the long wall instead
of the window. I've been considering doing that for a while and although
I'm not sure it actually looks or works better, for now I'm going to
leave it that way. It feels like there's a little bit more space freed
up that I can use to actually exercise in. Although the room does perhaps end up looking a bit narrower.
Much as I love the wooden armchair, I have admitted to myself that it
really is just too big for my apartment. I need to clear it off and take
a good picture to send to my sister. I think it would match her
existing furniture really well but am not sure if she'd like it or want
it. Since it was a gift to me from a good friend who was downsizing a
few years ago, I'd like to pass it on to someone I know rather than just
sell it or give it away to any old person.
Yesterday evening, I bestirred myself for long enough to hang the insect-proof netting curtain thing that I actually bought about a year ago and then never got around to putting up. Need to do some work on getting the side bits properly secured but at least it's up. Another baby step towards creating a home for myself.
