My dh and I have spent the day trying to organise and clean my daughters bedroom. Her clothes are hanging in her new wardrobe and the old furniture that was in there is being redeployed!!!!!! Her computer has had a spring clean and her dvds are all in bags in the lounge ready to be sorted. She is a 'mess monster' and it has taken both of us most of the day. She had a little bookcase in her room that there is no longer room for. So I have to either rehome them all or save them somewhere.
She has a little slip case of 3 books by Jane Hissey. They are lovely gentle story books and I can't bring myself to chuck these out. Dare I say I need to start a grandchildren box?!!!!!! She has a built in cupboard that at the moment has a chest of drawers infront of it. It was my secret hidey hole for my stash of books that dh can't stand. He thinks my kindle means that they should all have gone to the tip!!!! So when he isn't looking- these 'gentle' little books will hide back in the cupboard until they are needed one day!!!! We need an extension- but the neighbours don't tend to be too happy when you have a terrace house!!!
I've escaped to start cooking tea- because he's become a little bossy- and I'm not great at taking orders!!!!!! So in the interest of peace I'm having a coffee break and will then get started in the kitchen. 'His way' is the 'only way' when you are working on a room- so it's best that I leave him to it now!!!!!
Tomorrow we've got to start again in Amy's room. We should be decorating- but she's not cleared the room yet- so we'll need to start on that. Then we need to go shopping to choose paper and a new duvet and curtains. She also wants a chair from Ikea. It will be nice to see both bedrooms clear and tidy for a change and we're hoping they will keep it tidy. At the moment all the mess is in the lounge waiting to be sorted into either a rubbish, car boot or back into the room neatly pile!!!!!!!!!
