just a simple obsession

WOW, talk about an obsession.

Wonder what she spends doing this. 
Article doesn’t say she is a working mom, but she appears to be single. So now with three kids to care for, unless she’s independently wealthy or has some kind of trust or income, where’s the money come from?

Oh right.  That could be but the article doesn’t say.

Would this be best described as silly or maybe whimsical?

Wacky mother-of-three who painted her ENTIRE house pink has to have it re-decorated it blue after she gives birth to a boy

Wanda Matthews, 25, from Bolton, was previously obsessed with pink

But when she gave birth to son Kaiden, she gradually began to redecorate until everything was blue

Her and her daughter’s rooms are still pink

Everyone has a favourite colour, but one woman was so addicted to pink that she painted her entire house with the rosy hue.

But after giving birth to a little boy she decided to re-decorate her whole house in blue to make him feel more at home.

Wanda Matthews, 25, was so addicted to pink that everything in her life from her hairdryer to washing up gloves had the same pinky tint.

But when she discovered she was pregnant with son Kaiden she decided it wouldn’t be fair for him to grow up in her pink palace.

Wanda’s cerise wallpaper in her living room was swapped for a flowery sky-blue print, the hot pink wall paint was covered over with navy, the rose rug was replaced by a teal one and the crimson coloured cushions on her sofa are now different shades of aqua.

In her kitchen her pink cleaning products, toaster, kettle and washing up gloves were all thrown out to make way for their perfect blue replacements and even her previously girly bowls, plates and scissors are now hidden at the back of the cupboards while their indigo rivals are on display.

See here for more. Her baby looks pretty silly. Never noticed a silly looking baby before. Not a baby person anyway. Prefer cats and some dogs.

  1. When it’s not your work earning it or even your dime - People tend to do the most stupid, wasteful things. And I bet that there are a lot of decent Brits who are wondering where their next meal is coming from - who wouldn’t stoop to being ‘on the dole’.

    Much like us - we pay go our cell phones now ($10./month) and have to listen to Obamaphone commercials - it’s disgusting.

    And I think, it’s about to come crashing down on the big o’s arrogant head.

  2. same for me Wardmama, though no O-mercials. My “dumbphone” cost me $18 at Walmart, and costs less than $10 a month. No, I can’t surf, run apps, or download stuff. Even texting is a small pain. But it’s a phone, and that’s pretty much all I need. I have a computer at home for data and paper maps in the car for directions should I need them. Good enough for me.

    Of course the wife just gave herself an iPad Mini for Xmas ... but so far it seems that all she does with it is play Fruit Ninja ... hour after hour after hour. OMG, I am so sick of the sound of that !@#$%*$ thing!!!
