Seeing as my place is slightly more tidy today, than normal (claire blushes)
and the camera batteries are charged up (more blushes)
I thought it would be a good idea to snap some pics.
Well I have promised you some, so here we go.
Sitting room, AKA the lounge, living room or if you are either of my boys 'in there!'
Not sure if you can make out the LEGO and Wii fit board (sole use is snow-boarding for the boys, no fitness nonsense for me, ugh!) stuffed under the drawers! (this is tidy!)
Toby's bed, although he sometimes he prefers to sleep in mine, is awaiting a lovely quilted inner made in some delightful fabric.
He could be waiting a long long time, bless him!
(get catching some more mice then you Tinker!)
A rather too tidy fire place.
More thrifted goodies needed for here I think.
(I shall put back what 'clutter' I removed for the pic's now I have seen it looking so bare!)
A mirror or something was always planned to go above but somehow it never happened, more excuses for junk shop visits I think!
Mum's (thats me by the way) chair.
Not sure I like it looking so tidy, where are my arm covers and throw?
Oh yes, in the wash.
Love my thrifted stool though, painted and re-upholstered with a fabric scrap. Not bad for £3!!!
My colourful egg bowl!
Excuse the non-supermarket sparkling washed eggs, I like them being natural.
Their bowl and the plate behind were only £1 each and the candle holder was £4.
So thats it, just a peek.
Too many excuses for in my opinion, a slightly too tidy house.
Not to worry, it won't stay like this for long, in fact, as I look around, it is nothing like the above now!
My house is a home for living in, and it gets some hammer I tell you!
It was my Grandparents house, my Mum lived here when she was only 9 years old.
In my mind it is a lovely little thatched farmhouse, with a big trees for climbing and a stream in the garden, too many animals and lots of healthy happy children, all living happily together!!!
Well the thatch and stream could prove too much for me, and actually, I love it, just the way it is.
I hope you enjoyed your visit.
Maybe next time, we shall have tea and cakes!
