I've spent a lot of dosh. I don't know how much exactly, but more than my birthday money will allow, I'm sure. After having spent 10 years in this flat thinking one day I'll get around to replacing the hand-me-downs with soft furnishings, curtains and blinds of my own choosing, I have finally taken the plunge and tomorrow a surly man from the local House of Soft Furnishings, Curtains and Blinds will come to measure up my windows and decide how he's going to fit the lovely marble-effect caramel\cream-coloured Venetian blinds and beige-y\brown-y\vanilla-y coloured curtains I've contracted to buy off him.

That's one job taken care off; now there's still a gazillion others to get on with.

Whee! New curtains and blinds will really spruce the place up, I'm sure. Good luck getting them fitted!

I'll take some before and after pictures, and then you can judge for yourself how much of an improvement I've made!

Hee. I'm quite excited -- I've never had to buy Venetian blinds before (or curtains, for that matter), and I had no idea there was such a wide variety of colours and textures to choose from.

I love getting new curtains - not that it is something I do every day!

I love getting anything new in, be it furniture or pictures or white goods -- it makes me feel good to spend money on the flat to turn it more into a proper home rather than an overgrown student's digs...but I'm also a tightwad and don't splurge out on these things too much.
