You're Such A Home Owner

You know you're a home owner when...

Going to the hardware store is the most fun outing on the weekend.

You have a list of things you'd like to do to the house, that probably will never get done (kitchen renovation anyone?)

You know different types of grasses by sight.

You know the difference between duck egg and powder blue.

When driving around, you say things like, "that house has nice street appeal".

Window coverings are no longer psychedelic sheets.

You have so many insurances it's unbelievable- and what's more unbelievable is the amount of time you've spent shopping around for the best price.

You care about the condition of your roof, and know what pointing is.

You want feature walls- but can't decide if they are going to date too quickly.

You have a Pinterest board dedicated to housey type design.

You know how to spell mortgage- and how many years you have left on yours.

You know the date you signed the contract, and the date you moved in.

You want to store things in the roof, knowing that you'll probably not see them for years and years.

What else are you guilty of, now you're a home owner?


  1. I absolutely LOVE the pinterest pictures :D I am such a sucker for interior design haha :D Didn't know you had a blog btw ^_^

    1. Aww thanks. I've been blogging for a while, but sometimes it feels like, why bother because no one reads it anyway. Other times, (like the "Fun With Kids" one) it feels like I might be making a bit of a difference. Either way, it's something like a journal, which I have tried to keep so many times, but most of the time get to March and forget about it. At least with a blog there is no pressure to post every day. Thanks for stopping by! xxx
