Finishing touches!

That day of rest was definitely needed!

We had a generally good sleep, with one interruption at 3am… Lil Princess… it’s like some strange time for her, she always seems to wake then! But I got her back to her new bedroom, settled her and we ended up all sleeping until 9am!

And today was another hugely productive day!

I got my Arts and Crafts things all sorted and packed! And even Sonu Singh gave a helping hand!

And after a long afternoon, the landing looks like this!

Just the filing cabinet to be moved, when my brother in law can come and help!

And my addictive drugs are packed and labelled and put away in the attic!

Hubby Dearest had been busy too, finally reconnecting the PC up. We needed to rehome it, as the study, its old home was now a bedroom! He was convinced we should set it up in the bedroom, and that I should ‘lose’ my storage boxes for my photo albums and costume jewellery. I know I need to sort through that too, but there was no way I was having the PC in the bedroom. The TV is enough, without more electronics in there!

And I got my way! It has now been set up in the Dining Room, and all is well!

And what of all those books? Well, I have around 4 boxes of books that we have deemed not necessary for us now ready to be distributed to school/charities, along with new but not played with toys! And the rest? I hate to say goodbye to books, so we kept the lion’s share!

One shelf in the Dining Room, and one each in the kid’s rooms!

I even managed to give our bedroom a little sort out, but it was just cosmetic… there is plenty I could be doing there too, but that’s for another adventure time!

So I think I can sleep a happy sleep…

    This all looks fantastic – I’ve been doing a similar thing and it’s so satisfying to see much more space in the house!

    Nice. You’ve done a great job. I solved the book problems way back. When I finished reading a book I give it away so someone else can read it and I don’t want it in return, they can give the book to someone else who get the chance to read it and so on. But…some books I keep, so the problem is not solved entirely 😉

    Phew! That looks like hard work. It’s a good thing Sonu was there to lend you a helping paw. Ha, ha! Seriously, things look organized and you’re almost there. 😉

    The finishing line is close! When my daughter moved out, my youngest son moved into her room and his old room was made the “game room”. We decorated that room new too over these holidays and that affected my practice room. Half of it was still occupied with tv set, couch, PlayStation,… (parted with a curtain. Now that half of my room is my new workplace and gym. It was wonderful to clean it all out. But now…… there are also lots of books and clothes that are not needed anymore….!

    You have done a terrific job Ritu and you even got help from your beauty. Remember to save a box or two for the beauty 🙂

      Our beauty always has his pick of boxes bless him! You know what they say about cats and boxes… “if I fits, I sits”, and he definitely sits in any available ones!
      Thank you Irene!
