Boeing 747

End of 2016, I realised I don’t have personal goals, as in goals for me, and for my benefit, not others. I thought about why this is, and thought perhaps it was because then one would actually have to be accountable to your own dreams. Its easier to accomplish something for someone else, for e.g. at work. But if you for e.g. want to lose weight, if this was a work objective it would be handled as  “How much do you want to lose, by when do you want to lose it. So for this month I need to lose 2 kilo’s, how am I going to do that?” So instead of actually sticking to it, you just don’t have personal goals. And run around for everyone else…

So I decided I am setting a goal, and the first was to have an overseas holiday

Imagination Vs Reality

You recall I dreamt of this before seeing my flat again after only viewing it once the first time.

Room2

Well as you can see I thought I could still fit in another couch, and a dining room table. Thought my wooden parquet flooring under the carpet would be light. Couldn’t find a white shaggy carpet or beautiful moroccan berber carpet yet, but one win was decided to give up on the idea of having a R4400 Brass At Home Coffee Table and thrifted a second hand one for R150!!!  So here is the reality of my lounge at this stage…

Designing, Waiting, Designing, Waiting…

On 5 August I found out the place the bond came through, it is now October, and I will only be moving in November, and I have not been able to view the place again to get measurements due to the tenant being sick. This means I plan and plan and plan without really knowing so much what to work with, but finding flats on and pics that is similiar to my palce and scans of my own furniture that I can use. This is two ideas I came up with tonight for my lounge…

The first is the rug from Airloom I can afford and is kinda going with the spring/summer look and in fashion artsy colours.

Room1

Look 2 is after playing with picture one, and adding my original idea of having a white rug, and the soft pinks and brass things, and found this ammmmaaazzzzzing coffee table at At Home. Need to go to Morocco and buy me some furniture there! Now that I have altered it I realise pic two is really me!
