hard work

all done, the bedroom make over has begun, today i hoovered, scrubbed and washed down the entire room until it sparkled, then i moved all the furniture around, after only a slight panic as to whether everything would fit were i had planned it to go and it does.......................just LOL the chair will have to go somewhere other than were i had planned as i wouldn't be able to open the door and i've ordered some storage boxes and a really thin book case to display my treasures on it today, just need some more pretty things to arrive now and i can get it all sorted :)

ooh it's going to be gorgeous

when all the hard work is finished, have decided to give my bedroom a make over so have spent the last couple of days tracking down purple bedding and accessories, today i've added a new rug and arm chair to the mix as well as some pretty cushions, beaded tie backs for the old curtains and a lovely mirror, i now want something to go on my bedside table, i'm fancying an altered birdcage and some fairy lights with maybe a nice canvas on the main wall :) can't wait for it all to come now but so not looking forward to the cleaning up and scrubbing the place to within an inch of it's life, that's this weekend sorted then LOL

i had my first mince pie ever LOL yup i have never tasted a mince pie because i thought i didn't like them, you see my mam and dad both didn't like them so i just sort of assumed i didn't like them either LOL but we had mince pies for tea after our xmas lunch at work yesterday and the kids weren't sure of them, we tell them if they don't like the look of something they should try it by having a sniff, a lick and a little mousy nibble LOL so they did and so did i and you know what, it was really nice LOL looks like i'll be putting mince pies on the asda shop next week LOL

the elf on the shelf

meet buddy twinkle elfenstein, the result of me telling the kids the story of the elf on the shelf who watches and listens to see if people are being naughty or nice and flies back to the north pole every night to report the results to santa! of course the kids were fascinated and what with me being a complete soft touch i went to the fabric shop on the way home, bought some scraps of felt and some toy stuffing and rustled up wee buddy there LOL, can't wait to see their faces tomorrow when he arrives at nursery complete with a letter from santa :-)
