Covered in't' Paint!


Posted by Picasa

Two days ago I was driving past B&Q after taking Yorkie to work, and a moment of madness struck!

"I know," thinks I "I'll go and buy some tile paint and redecroate the bathroom!"

£100 on, and a good deal of mess, plaster and paint later, I have almost finished! And I'll have done it all by my self! Aint I a good un?

My bathroom is tiny, and I do mean TINY! As you walk in you almost fall over the sink on the right hand side. The loo is directly in front of you (your knees fit under the sink while you sit on it), and the bath is on the left, taking up the whole of the left hand side from the door to the 'far' wall, next to the loo. You cannot fot two people in this bathroom!

The tiles, which take up the while of the bath wall and come upto the window behind the loo, and about a third of the way up the sink wall, are a nasty dark green with gold fleck, and the non-tiled bits of wall are WOODCHIP painted dark red, again with gold flecks. Apart from being HORRID it also makes the tiny tiny room feel even smaller.

NO MORE!

I have bought white tile paint, and a light sage green tile paint. The tiles are now brilliant white, with a band of the light green about a third of the way up (or across the top of the half tiltes wall). I am now waiting for the walls (now void of nasty nasty woodchip) to dry after their first coat of brilliant white bathroom / kitchen paint so I can give them a second coat, and for the filler to dry on the one section of bare wall over the foot of the bath so I can paint that too.

It been very very hard work, and halfway through day 3, it still isn't over. But I should get it finished today with a bit of luck! Then I can finally have a BATH and get rid of the paint which seems to have coated the better half of my body! Gahhh!

I'll post a photo when it's finished.

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
