Room preparation

Today has been a day of destruction – we have emptied Oliver’s, Elliot’s AND the new office of all furniture and carpets – all in the readiness for Sharps to deliver the goodies next Wednesday so that the fitter can crack on from the 9th Feb.

We have some decorating to do as we will need to replace the skirting boards into Olly’s room before the weekend – repainted of course. Before this we hope to have the walls coated with at least one coats of paint.

The new office is hopefully going to be treated to a new real wood floor to help with castors for new office chairs.

Elliot will be getting his existing carpet back for the time being and Oliver will need new carpet since the old dining room carpet is around 6″ too short 🙁

So Elliot is on the spare room for now and Olly is sleeping on his own mattress in mummy and daddy’s room.

Oh it is all fun at Fork Hall for the next few weeks….

New office and boys bedrooms

Sharps came round tonight to discuss a plan to refresh Elliot’s bedroom and we had some discount vouchers to help with the scenario. Anyway, we have ended up decking out Elliot’s room, Oliver’s room AND we are converting the current boys playroom into a brand new office for mummy and daddy.

Hopefully the whole lot will be in place within about 6 weeks and we can then begin rebuilding our savings again… 🙁

On top of this they have agreed to provide us with the materials to rebuild the TV cabinet at the end of the bed in mummy and daddy’s room 🙂

Mummy has a new iPhone

Finally, after many months of issues with battery life, mummy has finally taken the plunge and bought a new phone – a shiny iPhone 6 + with 64Gb storage and of course in the obligatory Gold colour scheme.

It sure is a big phone to have in your hand but will certainly be good for email and other internet based stuff.

This time around mummy has dumped the 3 network in favour of a cracking deal with she was able to obtain through good friend Caroline on the Vodafone network.

So, there is it, daddy is now well and truly behind with his technology for perhaps the first time ever… 🙂
