Our day started earlier than usual with a little knock on the door at 7.30am. We were taking Thomas' friend to school as his Mum and Dad both had to be in work early. I quite happily opened the door in my PJ's and with my hair stuck up on end. Little friend is 10 and didn't give me a second glance as he dumped his stuff on the settee and headed for the Xbox room and thankfully his Mum certainly wouldn't expect such formalities as me being dressed.
No Bury today as the furniture delivery time was 11.30am-3.30pm; neither morning or afternoon. Never mind, I went into Middleton for an hour instead and had a mooch around. I found these tiny photo frames for 69p each and back home had a look through the photos going back down memory lane, before I chose these.
I also put a couple of new cushions out and although I didn't know which one it would be, as suspected, within 10 minutes a doggy was snuggled up and fast asleep on them.
And as I can't throw everything away I've decided the least I can do is store things that are keepers in nice boxes. The 'Love' one is for all our photos and the Stag one is for Tom's things.
I'm hanging fire for just one more day with the 'finished' photo. We're having a new internal door fitted tomorrow which means the curtain can go which we pull across so people can't see in. That was my mistake. When I chose a new front door I chose a glass that you can part see through so anybody standing at the front door could see straight into the lounge. The curtain was a cheap fix-it until the internal door was replaced "in a few weeks". That was about 5 years ago and we're just doing it now!
Sometimes the saying "no time like the present" completely goes over our heads at Number 38.
