Haha 5 year plans almost never work! Kevin said that we were going to redo our kitchen (a pretty major reno, knocking out a wall etc) within 5-8 years. It's now our 8th year here, and he's freaking out that he didn't keep his promise. It's ok! I would love a new kitchen, sure, but life very rarely goes according to plan!

And it was a fraction of the cost of redoing the floor. It really looks nice. Took most of the kicks and stuff out and these were floors that had been put in over 40 years ago.
That's the plan. That's my version of redoing the floors. I was going to do it myself, but for not a whole more than what it would cost me to rent the equipment, I can hire a professional. He's on the low end price-wise, but I've seen his work, and it looks great. The plan is to sand down the floors enough to take out the scratches and stuff, put on a sealer, then a coat of polyurethane to protect it from future scratches.

I'd just be happy to own a house.

I've never lived in a house I/we've owned.

So my mum calls me and is like "why aren't you at the library" and guilted me into going and study.

I know I should be doing it but I was perfectly happy to write off today as I need to clean and tidy and stuff. But now I can't because I feel guilty and have to go study.

All I do is sit there and go on here or somewhere else most of the time. I don't have a clue what I am writing.

Blah. I had plans.

Me neither, Saskia. It would be nice to be able to really create a home, that you knew you were going to be in for years and years, rather than having to move on every few years... My boyfriend wants us to start saving for a deposit once I move down, I'm thinking I want somewhere away from the city where I can eventually keep some chickens and horses and dogs, and a pony for the kids. And someone can grow a vege garden (but not me, I kill plants just with my presence).

Haha, I was always studying so I could give myself a reason not to do housework!

WIRider, just make sure you wear a really good dust and fume mask when you're sanding the floors (especially if you're using a power sander, which I assume you are unless you're my dad and think you're living in the 19th century). Some old floors were treated with creosote to prevent insect damage - you really don't want to be getting that stuff in your lungs.
