We moved in to our first home together as a family 5 years ago with a view to making it perfect.
With 3 children at home, my husband working away 5 days a week - we just don't get time or the finances to do the jobs we want to do.
Everything is pipedreams.
The bathroom was the first room I wanted to do - it was hideous when we moved in-black and gold Art Deco!!!
But along the way there were other jobs we HAD to do, new boiler, kitchen flooding.
So now, 5.5 years on-I still have the Art Deco bathroom from hell, with a shower that's only one heat (cold in the winter & hot in the summer!!!)
