The door we’ve inherited is green, dark green, with a scruffy surround, a tatty letter box, a phenomenally temperamental lock with a mind of its own and it also isn’t very air tight, so I can see it being a problem in the winter. But mostly it’s a bit ugly and has me searching Pinterest for the perfect replacement. In my head because the hallway will eventually be black and white and grey (once the yellow and orange woodchip has been painstakingly scraped off, and it’s been replastered, and painted) I think a black door, with a beautiful knocker (stop your sniggering children), would be the most sensible choice – it would look classy and I can see it all trussed up at Christmas with a wreath and the likes, but my heart tells me that a beautiful bright door would make me even happier.

And then do we go with a simple door or should we go all high-tech and have one of those ones that just knows you’re approaching and unlocks itself or one with a key code on it? This option does terrify me that I’d get too drunk to remember the code but how awesome would it be to never have to worry about fumbling about in the bottom of your handbag for keys again and you’d get to feel like a spy every time you entered the house. Plus with the keycode, if I got really annoyed with Jim I could just change it……….(no, no, that would be too mean, wouldn’t it?)
*Also, yes, we do watch far too much DDD in our house! This was the first thing that came to mind when thinking of a blog title.
