Back to school and the realisation of what we need to do before our guests arrive on Thursday finally hit us last night! We have family staying for the funeral and as we’d spent most of the weekend decorating, the house is in need of a clean. So we’re both getting in from work and immediately setting to on the house. Not that it’s that bad, but when I have people staying I like it to be spotless! We bought a new very pale cream bamboo blind for the bathroom which Dave has to fix up along with putting back all the picture hooks etc which he took down in readiness for me to wallpaper. I managed to get the wallpapering done in a couple of hours. It was easy thanks to the fact that so much of the walls are tiled. Even so, it’s given the bathroom a lovely fresher look…the wallpaper is a very thin stripe in the colours of this blog. I’ve bought new towels and a new shower curtain and now I want to ‘titivate’ with a few decorative bits and pieces (when I find some!)
Last night we were both feeling exhausted and in need of a couple more days off so when the alarm went off this morning neither of us stirred very quickly. But the kids have again been brilliant I’m thankful to say. Tomorrow I have a dental appointment after school and then on Thursday some of Dave’s family will be arriving. It seems like such a while since his mum died and it’s been very difficult waiting three weeks for the funeral. Fingers crossed that it goes smoothly and that all the past family disagreements are forgotten for this special day.
