I think I mentioned a few days ago that we were moving furniture around last weekend. We decided to swap William’s bedroom with the spare bedroom – the spare room is the biggest bedroom in the house and has an ensuite shower room, and as Will gets older, it’s nice for him to have more of a bedroom/sitting room arrangement with his TV, a sofa etc. He can also have his friends round without them taking over and trashing my lounge!
This swap does have the knock-on effect of what is now the spare room being less than half the size it was previously – and having to find space to store all the shizzle we used to keep in there. Because it was such a big room, it tended to get used as a dumping ground for eBay stock, stuff on its way to or from the loft, and anything else that we weren’t quite sure what to do with!
Hence, this week has been a lot about tidying, decluttering and rehoming mountains of ‘stuff’ – and it’s still not finished. The charity shops have done well out of me this week – I’ve taken in several large bags and boxes of things, and there are more to go.
Lots of good stuff on TV since the beginning of the New Year as well – One Born Every Minute (always makes me cry), Dancing on Ice (although what a bunch of NOBODIES this year’s ‘celebs’ are), Wild At Heart (lovely family Sunday evening viewing), a new series of Bear Grylls which is one of William’s favourites, and Casualty is back on Saturday evenings. Enjoyed last week’s three part drama on BBC One with Anna Friel, Public Enemies – thought provoking and well acted, if a bit far-fetched.
I’ve just received from Lovefilm the first DVD of the first ever series of Spooks, which somehow passed me by completely when it was on TV, so I’m looking forward to watching that this weekend.
We’re off to Wetherspoons this evening to meet up with friends and their kids for drinks and food – after nearly two weeks of abstinence and healthy eating, I’m really quite excited about it!
Saturday night will be a quiet night in for us, and on Sunday Ashley is off to the hotel as he has to attend their staff Christmas do on Sunday evening. (Yes, I know it’s not Christmas, but they always have their party in Jan as they’re too busy in December).
Right, I’m off out for a walk – first frosty morning we’ve had since well before Christmas here. Happy Friday 13th, everybody!
Ps Just had to post this, that I found on Pinterest (yes, slowly but surely, Pinterest is sucking me in!). Not only is it rather funny, it’s very appropriate to my life this week as well.
