It’s been one of those weeks here where it’s all just been a little bit all over the place- a little topsy turvy. After a busy weekend last weekend, we moved and cleared all the furniture out of Mads and LL’s new rooms on Sunday evening to get it ready for our decorator to come and paint on the Monday. He painted both rooms for us, including painting our new office space a colour which I decided I didn’t like. (so he had to come back the following the day to repaint over it- Mr E wasn’t impressed!)
Once the painting was done ‘Operation New Girls Room and New Office Space’ officially commenced. Mr E has spent almost every evening this week building countless flat packed furniture, including wardrobes, chests of drawers and of course a new bunk bed. It’s been a long week, and quite a tiring one too- I am not particularly good when the house is a mess and we have been wading under so much stuff- no room is safe from all the debris while we sort it out.
LL has been sleeping in a travel cot all week in her old room and Mads has been sleeping in our bed- while I have relished the week of cuddles, she also isn’t a particularly attractive bed partner- she kicks, snorts, plays with your ear constantly, and throws the cover off in the middle of the night. She also has been getting up earlier in the morning’s, presumably because she is in the middle of us two. As such I have been a little tired and grumpy, we all have actually.
But the end is in sight and we are so excited. Yesterday we spent the whole day putting things up, sorting things out and generally trying to get the house back to some sort of order. Unfortunately LL is a little under the weather which is a shame because Saturday was going to be the first day we put them in the room together- however we have vetoed this idea due to her not being well, but Mads has her first night in the top bunk which she is incredibly excited about.
The photo below is from Wednesday morning when they awoke to discover that the bunk bed fairy had made the bed up for them overnight. They were so excited, and so far we have been up and down the ladder so many times that I have lost count. I am a little nervous about them sharing a room- mainly as they are such good sleepers and also because LL hasn’t slept in a bed before, but hopefully in a few days time I will be wondering why I was so worried. Although I have a feeling there’s going to be some settling in issues along the way! Either way I hope sharing a room will bring my sisters even closer than they were before.
