It's done

Here is the layout I did of Ethan's new room, you can see the photos more clearly if you click on the photo - I just love the expression on his face when he first saw it.

Well Ethan's room is complete - apart from a few finishing touches. Its been a busy day especially completing bits before the carpet fitter arrived, who did a great job. We then started to put the bed together, which took a while and I had to go and pick Ethan up from nursery. It was a real job then trying to keep him out of the room so he could have a nice surprise later.

We went out for lunch which was lovely and a great meal - steak pie, John had Bacon and Chicken pie and Ethan had Pizza - yum yum. After that we dropped Ethan off at his Nan and Grandad's whilst we got the furniture in the room, put shelves, curtain poles and curtains up, put the stickers on the wall and cleaned it. John then fetched him and the expression on his face was priceless, he loved it and I have some great photos to scrapbook now :)

Lots of tidying up needed now as the house is a mess and full of dust but we start all over again with the front room now, so another room will be done in two weeks!

First day

Well I thought I would start my own blog. I have enjoyed reading quite a few over the last month so thought I would give it ago.

I am off work this week and we are trying to get the house sorted for Christmas. We moved here in August and have such a lot of work to do. We will have finshed Ethan's room by the end of the week and the front room downstairs in a few weeks.

Today has been a hectic day. I helped at my son's nursery this morning which he really enjoyed. I sat at the computer for a while and also played dominoes with some of the children - they were really good. I also helped at PE, because they had an extra body they were able to have more apparatus out which was nice.

My husband then managed to put a nail through a central heating pipe whilst replacing some floorboards, it is all sorted now but at a price! Never mind it had been going smoothly up untill then.

Must go, a visit to Ikea is needed to get a mattress and some storage so we can get Ethan's room in order tomorrow after the carpet is fitted.
