Mark was up and at it this morning, (no you cheeky things, he was building shelves!) and by 9.30am they were ready for me to fill. Not sure why we didn't put one up in the first place as it balances the room out better. It might have been a case of one DIY job too many for Mark.
This is the sort of thing that I can't look at too long or it could make me cry! I hate all this gaming stuff that comes with lots of wires. Give me a jigsaw or a book any day.
I took all the DVD's, books, games, etc off the shelf, gave them a wipe down then put them all back. And little things like this have been sorted. An open bag of tea lights that roll out every time I move the bag are now in a box.
Thomas' birthday and Christmas lego presents which I found all over the room were dumped on a shelf. All together, but not the look I was aiming for, so.....
.... it all went in a box as well.
Anyway, here are the shelves looking a bit tidier. I've not been able to throw much away so it was just a case of finding room for things and making it look a bit neater. The other side of the room is a January Project for Monday.
Mark took me to The Range yesterday, another place I've never been to, so now I have two new places to visit. The stairs look a bit bare since taking the Christmas boards down so I bought this. It was only £4.99 and it was a shame to leave it on the shelf for that price. And I've loved having lights up over the holidays so I bought some warm white ones to go around it.
After a tricky first week back at school for Thomas, everything seems to be sorted out and he's fine. He's been chosen to represent the school in a swimming gala in a couple of weeks which he's really excited about and wants to go training this weekend. Secretly hoping he forgets about that.
We did the tango at dancing last night. I wear flat shoes but there's a 'stomp' in this dance that would be great to do wearing heels, so I might buy a pair in a few weeks. Not yet though, negotiating steps and Mark's feet in ballet shoes is hard enough for now. Plus I've got a corn that's giving me jip which I need to get sorted out. Ah the joys of getting older.
And after a busy cleaning and clearing day, against all expert advice I'm now sat with my feet up enjoying a glass of rose. It's such a thrill living on the edge, I highly recommend it!
