Anyone who knows me is aware of how amazingly impatient I am. That Take That sound could be written about me. Once I got my hands on one of those pens in gift shops that have your name on (Lorna is an uncommon name apparently) and it said on it “Lorna. A woman of unremitting patience” and I thought my god they’ve clearly never met me.
Playing the waiting game must be my least favourite game. I want everything now or never and I hate having to wait. However, this week I’ve been really good at waiting. I waited till Saturday to be shown around this apartment I spied on rightmove. I waited to hear back if my application had been accepted, and now I am waiting until I get the keys and can start moving in. To be fair I don’t have long to wait, but still I have been very patient and this is very unlike me. Must be part of the whole “new Lorna” thing I’ve got going on.
One thing I will definitely be patient with is buying anything for the flat. I will resist until I am in, although I do have a complete idea of everything I will buy and how the final flat will look when finished. To be honest, the living room especially doesn’t look like much at the moment.
I think the word you’re looking for is “potential” but I’m sure in no time I’m be making this flat a home with bright colours and soft furnishings. This is the kind of thing I’m thinking of …. with oranges, pinks, purples and pale blues…. the words fresh, clean and feminine spring to mind. What do you think?
During and after pictures to follow next week. Wish me luck!!
