This might seem a little odd, but it's something Tom and I have wanted for ages, can you imagine how cosy it would make our living room! We have a rather empty fireplace at the moment and we're desperate to fill it with a wood-burner by next winter. Tom has even started building a wood-store in the garden ready for all the wood we're going to need! (Excuse the mess, we've just pulled down a load of decking and are working on the garden!) Bodhi, as always, is on hand to inspect any changes being made!
3. Our wedding
A new bathroom is also on the 'to save for' list. At the moment our bathroom has three peach walls and one white one where Tom had a burst of energy one weekend and then ran out of paint. It also has lots and lots of wooden cladding with gaps in and zero storage, meaning horrid boxes of toiletries everywhere! We'd love to do the same as the kitchen and get a proper designer and fitter in to get it done properly!
So that's my 'once in a lifetime' splurge list except for we're trying to fit it all into a two-year period - oops! This blog post topic was suggested by Everyday Loans and I fear we may end up needing one of our own if we don't stop expanding the 'to save for' list!
What would your 'once in a lifetime' spend be - or what big ticket item are you saving for?
