The reason I ask, I entered a competition on Friday with the TD Bank, and the prize was $10,000 for Home Renovation. Now as this is a "pretend" thing, you can spend it any way you like.
Me, well I would use it for home renovations, as we have so much more to do. I would use $5,000 to finish off the attic. I would use $3,000 to replace the windows in the basement. The last $2,000 I would use to build closets in our bedroom!!! If there was any change, I would use it get paint supplies to decorate the house. Gosh that $10,000 was spent pretty quickly don't you think?
Funny thing is, if it were $100,000 I could still spend it on the house with a blink of an eye. I would build a new double garage, $20,000, tarmac the driveway, $10,000. Put new siding on the extension and mud room, $5,000. Re-do the mud room completely, $10,000. New hardwood flooring and finishing of in the family room $5,000. Finish off the extension basement, $5,000. New washer and dryer, $2,000, new shed $3,000. Landscaping $10,000, new kitchen cupboards and counter tops, $20,000, the final $10,000, everything from the $10,000 list above. Again pretty easy to spend that sort of money...LOL
On Friday I spent the day doing jobs around the house. I have friends popping in on Saturday to pick raspberries, so wanted to have the house looking half tidy.
I did pick some raspberries for ourselves on Friday afternoon and made a pear and raspberry crisp for our pudding on Friday night, it was so good. I also did another half hour of cleaning the stove top to try and get the burnt jam off it. Its a lot better, but there are still some minor marks on it, so I will give it another go on the weekend. I am cursing up and down for letting the jam boil over on my stove!!
This morning when I went to hang out the laundry I saw the mother turkey with her young at the bottom of Kamikazie Hill, I couldn't get too close to them again...
