Celebrate The Small Things: 12 August

I did my first bit of decorating ever. I wanted to help my sister with sorting out her new house and painted a few walls. I was thoroughly impressed with myself considering that it was my first time and around some awkward corners and angles. Her partner also has a rule that anybody who helps out will not go hungry, so I was fed and offered lots of chocolate treats in turn – well worth it. I’m wanting to learn a lot of this stuff anyway so that I’m ready for when we move into our own house. We keep having conversations about how amazing it’ll be to finally get our lives started, although it’s also slightly overwhelming.

No Man’s Sky was out this week, which was something to look forward to checking out. Yay, new shiny game feel. I’ve got the night in so I’m going to get some snacks while I spend my time exploring the universe. I’ve also become obsessed with the film Metropolis as we finally got a copy in. My sister and I had been wanting to watch this old sci-fi film for a long time. I wasn’t sure at first as I’d never seen a silent movie before, but was amazed at how engaging it was considering the age of the film. This film has inspired lots of things, like the Queen video Radio Ga Ga. I get excited when I discover enjoyment in new things. They inspire me.

It’s time for Comic Con again so it’ll be a fun weekend.


Celebrate the Small Things is a weekly celebration created by VikLit and now hosted by Lexa Cain to celebrate the happenings of the week, however small or large. You can learn all about it and sign up for it here.

    We’ve painted several rooms in our house with the exception of the great room, where the walls are too high. It’s exhausting, but does save money. My one oops was doing only one coat in our bathroom and then not letting it dry for a few days before using the shower and steaming up the place. Now there are bubbles and cracks here and there. But I do have a good excuse. I was seven months pregnant at the time!

    I did quite a lot of painting when we had an addition put on our house a few years ago. It’s a lot of work, but well worth it. You’ve got some great experience now that you can put to good use when you move into your new home. Painting your own home will be much more satisfying than painting someone else’s. And you can reward yourself with more chocolate!
    I’m not familiar with Metropolis. I’ll have to look that up. Have fun with your new game! Enjoy Comic Con!

      I’ve never been given the oppetunity to do things on a house before, so we’re going to be learning a few things to make sure we can take care of our own. Chocolate is the best incentive :P. Thanks, hope you’re having a good week.

    It’s so nice of your to help your sister paint, and nice of them to feed you! It’s wonderful that you’re planning your own home details – so exciting! Have a great time at the con! 🙂

    Our rooms are in dire need a paint job. A fresh coat of paint makes all the difference. Food and chocolate sound like a great incentive, I’ll have to remember that when my time comes to ask for volunteers!

      It’s a good way to draw in help if you need it :P. We have a lot of work to do to make the house liveable, but otherwise it wouldn’t be as overwhelming so long as you focus on one room at a time.
