I have now got to the point in the year when it’s obvious that certain property jobs need attending to. I have a window cleaner come fortnightly and this spring they flushed out the guttering all round, and cleaned the soffits and barge boards – so goody, that difficult bit’s done. It’s the inside of the house that needs a bit more love and attention. I will be engaging the services of a good interior design and decor team as I am not mobile enough to manage the up and down ladder stuff. I’m also incredibly clumsy and the prospect of trying to keep the paint on the brush until it reaches the wall is a worry. A good team will always be able to see the positives of any project – how to accentuate the light in a room; how to place furniture to make space saving gains. They will be quaified, experienced and fully insured for all eventualities – all points to look out for.
