& the bedroom makeovers are off & racing . . .
For those of you who might not have school age children yet, we school mummies tend to go a bit postal on the children's bedrooms in the school holidays. More than just a good clean, it's a "don't talk to me OR look at what is in the garbage bags" frantic situation. These school holidays i'm quite literally turning out the bedrooms as if we were moving (we will be moving in the next 3-12 months) & to add a new degree of difficulty - just for fun i'm roatating all 4 children into different rooms. What else would you do when your husband is away for a week??
My secret weapon to keep the children away from their rooms while i psycho clean & to avoid the irrating "i'm hungry" moan, is to put out a picnic spread.
Really annoyed these images are not grouping & are all spread out BLOGGER (??!!) anyway, you can see where i'm going - the first room is evolving & attracting silly children (FYI neither of these two are in this particular room, this is our eldest daughter's room with a red & blue theme, i said evolving!!) There are still electronics to plug in, pictures to hang & a book shelving unit to collect, which will be perfect for the French wooden doll's house, as she said "it's a nice memory from my childhood".
I love love love the chess board, shall take a close up image later, the pieces are Alice in Wonderland, it makes playing chess even more of a pleasure.
Oh, now what's on that pallet in the garage?? I have new chairs from Little Nest for the children's 'play area' of their bedrooms, i can not wait to unload these, one by one as i complete the rooms. So hope the new bunks for the twins arrive soon, we've also decided to get the big & little ones new beds too, so their rooms won't be 'perfect' for a little while longer. Back to it, there are two children dispersed right now, who will sleep on the lounge tonight, good incentive to finish their rooms for a head start on those twins & all their bits & pieces tomorrow.
