The decorator has been and gone and taken his whistling with him. He's a lovely bloke, always cheerful and happy but he whistles constantly. That in itself isn't so bad if he'd only whistle a tune but it's just random notes - All.The.Time. Thankfully he only works mornings so I've only had to endure 4 hours of it at once.
Anyway, the dining room is finished although it doesn't really look any different. In fact Mum sat here for a good 10 minutes yesterday before noticing the new paper probably because I chose a red floral again. It's a different pattern but it's not obvious which I knew it wouldn't be but I'm happy with it. I really just wanted the room freshening up rather than a change of look.
Thomas' room is also done, although he's yet to move back into it. He's been on a mattress next to our bed for 3 nights which has made for a lot of laughing, messing around and late nights. He is such a chatterbox when he should really be going to sleep! We need to do a couple more things in there like shelving, blinds, lighting then tomorrow he'll be back in. It doesn't look too bad actually, if I look at it quickly then look away!
The kitchen is next but not until we come back off holiday and trust me it will be a much gentler on the eyes.
