we’re decorating our living room at the moment. i’m enjoying getting my hands dirty and running around in paint-stained clothes all day. i also enjoy our beautiful old-fashioned wooden ladder and how safe i feel on it. and i’ve enjoyed our on the spot consensus-making after realising that the colours we chose don’t go together, trying to consider as much as possible also that person’s view who was not around at that moment. i will enjoy the living room in new, fresh looks. but above all i enjoy the quality time we’re spending together while doing it: working in silence, laughing at our quirks (my inability to draw a straight line), sharing the less pleasant tasks, and sitting around the table in messy paint clothes for endless teas & coffees.
