Today I’m sharing some of the things I love about our new rooms.  Instead of getting bogged down by what I’ve got to do, I am going to enjoy what has been done and what we have gained.   The chaos downstairs will get sorted slowly but surely over the next wee while.  These things take time (good line for a song).

Other Stuff

Instagram is something I’ve been aware of for some time but have never really got into, I’m wary of it I guess.  This post from  Tales from a Happy House Instagram has changed my mind, now I’m keen to get on and use it.  My goal is a photo a day for the whole of the school holidays.  I will let you know once I’ve got organised with a name and so on, technoteenboy will be on hand if I get stuck

Daisies cannot be beaten – look at these super hair accessories being modelled by the gorgeous H.  Wish I’d got myself some now.

The Glasonbury father returned eventually last night.  Tired, brown and happy that he was home after a super-long bus journey.   The kids all have their very own Glasto t-shirts now, H and F have all the bands that played on their backs – one is not that great for a 5 year old to notice.  Never mind. L has a Rolling Stones one which he absolutely loves. It’s good to have C back xx

Day Seventy-Six

It’s back where it started from, the late 80s bathroom cabinet started out almost exactly where it is now in a grey and pink bathroom, now it is gracing our 21st century version, and I am so glad we saved it.  It’s  a wee bit worse for wear and needs new light strips but I love it.

Here’s a link to the post about the bathroom going back on day 8.  We have come a long way since then.  The bathroom day 8, do have a look,x

Day Seventy-Five (sort of)

The blog is back, we have had a very sickly household since last Monday, everyone apart from the hardy F has been bed bound for at least a day, if not two, with a really nasty bug.  Horrible, I felt like my body was stuck to the bed on Saturday and I missed the best day of the year into the bargain.  I am feeling loads better since about 10am this morning, in case you’re wondering.  Even C was stuck to his bed on Thursday, that is most unusual.

Onwards now,  the regeneration has really, really slowed down at the moment and it is becoming frustrating trying to get the last wee bits done.  The carpets are not in yet – should be soon. I have finished painting the pegs for the upstairs bathroom and the velux blinds are here and keeping the bedrooms dark.  It gets dark at about 10pm at the moment and gets light about 3am (noticed when I was up in the night on Friday night/sat morn, enough said).  It is hard for the kids to get to sleep so the blackouts are brilliant. F has a red one but I got a bit carried away taking pics of the clouds so you cannot actually see the colour of the blind.  H’s is the most sunny yellow, it’s very jolly.
