Busy preparing, physically and mentally…

Been a busy weekend all things considered.   Had a Men’s breakfast yesterday morning with the guys eating a full sit down breakfast.  Then Yve and I went out to B&Q and the Carpet Wise to buy stuff to finish off decorating the rooms with.  Spent entirely too much money, but the end result is tremendous.  Phil came down from Paisley for the weekend to Preach, love having him visit.  Church this morning and then I fitted all the new light fittings and then did some small filling and caulking jobs, swapped the curtain rail from our room to girls room and then got to sit down; 8pm.  Tired.

New carpets to all 3 bedrooms,  that are being decorated, ours being the only one missing out on the facelift.  The girls room is now Pink and the boys is blue and the guest is white with accents of red, curtains, throw, cushions etc.  Carpets come on Monday week and will be fitted, I will then put new grippers to the thresholds to finish them off, we are still talking about new doors as well but we’ll see.

It has been nice, was just saying to Yve about the new look to the rooms, all have new Pendant Light fittings, nothing fancy, the hall upstairs and downstairs now have new light fittings, all chrome brushed steel etc, as does the Kitchen and Bathroom.

It has been somewhat therapeutic for Yve as she has been off all week from work, doing most of the painting work, I do the ceilings and some filling and heavy moving  etc, as well as removing doors and curtain rails.  Feels all the more real as we have received a new Single Bed, Thanks Jess, which will more than likely be the boys, and there is another coming after the carpet goes down from Jonathan, cheers mate.  That will complete the transformation of their rooms, we already have all the furniture, with the exception of a single door robe for the guest room, being the only other furniture to buy.  Need to get rid of the futon/bed, so that should be us…

Ooooppss no it won’t as there are appropriately designed stickers etc to be placed on the walls to finish things off.  So we still have a way to go before they are done and we can take pics for their albums, which is why all of this is being done now and with some urgency.

Already have some ideas for the albums that we need to create, we have them, filling them is the hard part.  But that is where the creative side comes in…

Joy, Joy, Joy, 30 days till Panel, not that we’re counting.  Life Appreciation on Thursday and moving head long at speed.
