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 Sixty-Eight

day 68.2 001The painter has been busy again today, the stair walls have had their first coat of paint along with the banister (which is not finished!).  You are being lured into a clean, white, calm world when you look up to the skylights, it is just lovely. Much better than the guddley, dusty mess down the stairs that’s for sure.
That’s it for today, I’m off out with the dogs now, it has been such a lovely day here in Edinburgh. Hooray x

Day Fifty-Four

Nearly eleven weeks and it really is coming together.  Thought we may take a little look at where we started as a reminder as to how far we’ve come.

Thought you might like to see F’s titanic again, lots of folk have told me it has been their favourite photo on the blog.  It is looking a little decrepit now in real life.

All that’s left is to say is have an amazing weekend, mine’s going pretty well so far, 2 hours in a cafe with a good friend and not one of our children in sight.  Bliss. xx
