I've been stripping...

...wallpaper, LOL

OK what did you think I was on about?

Have made a start on the loung/dinning room, the only trouble is I only get chance to do it if I have a whole free like today, so saw Steven onto the school bus, then came home, moved the furniture, covered what I had to with dust sheets, got changed into my decorating clothes and started that was 8.50, and carried on till 2.30, then it was the cleaning up, putting all the furniture back in it's right place, quick 2 minute shower then off to pick littlen up from after school club (finishes at 4.30, but have to leave by 4 because of traffic, as have to pick him up from school), have not got another WHOLE free day till next Thursday, so now you understand why it's on my list to finish by the end of the year.

Everything has to be packed away, room cleaned and all the furniture back in it's RIGHT place before littlen comes home, as he does not like change, as least this way he excepts the change in the decor slowly, also if anything is left lying around, it usually ends up in his mouth, being wallpaper or scraper etc.

the little darling, likes to keep me on my toes.

Wow sounds like you have been really busy Maria. We need to paint our hall but we have been putting it off for over a year now as it is such hassle!

It took me a year from start to finish when we did out hall, stairs, landing etc. right up to Sam's attic bedroom.

Wish I could say it was worth it, but was disappointed with the paper, it was £13 a roll and you could see the joins of the lining paper through it :-(
