Money – where does it go too?
This morning I awaited a visit from Trevor. Harry was despatched to the ‘conservatory’ to ponder the meaning of life while I supervised the measuring for carpet and vinyl (bathroom)
As you all know I like to try and support small businesses and shop locally so my choice of flooring was subject to what Dean Carpets had - the sad thing is it is very difficult to make an environmentally sound choice when buying flooring.
I possess the Crucial Trading brochure – I had dreams of sisal and linoleum but there is a problem – I am not married to a millionaire.
There is an old saying ‘cut your coat according to your cloth’ which although old fashioned is very sound advice.
This will be my carpet – its 80% wool and I hope the colour is dark enough not to show too much dog detritus but light enough to open up the rooms.
I threw caution to the wind with my choice of vinyl for our bijou bathroom – it reminds me of the bottom of our fish pond. I know it’s not subtle but I’m hoping it will be an injection of colour to an otherwise neutral room.
I might start a trend for gay flooring:)
Subject to a catastrophic accident involving a major spill of dog or blood or something awful the carpet will be down for years, and so will the vinyl.
