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.

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out
