Mum and I went in to colchester to have a look for the boys carpet, as there room is being done now. There were loads to choose from, but I do like me a little bit of different, so I picked out a really fabby stripey carpet. No! Don't shriek with horror until you have seen it. Anyhooo while we were there we also chose our bedroom carpet, the frontroom and hallway carpet and the stair carpet. The stairs are also going to be stripey LOL!! I did go for a traditional one in the front room and hallway and also our bedroom though. So thats done, one less job.
While we were in colcehster we thought we would have a change and shop in Sainsbury's.. OH it was awful lol.. It took twice as long for a grocery shop becasue I didn't have a clue where anything was. Bad idea, I'll stick will good ole morrisons..
I have been super productive today, the carpet all ordered, and we booked a holiday, after ages of trying to find a nice hotel in cornwall we ended up picking the Cimon in Torquay. I liked this one for more than the obvious reasons, but also because when I rang and explained about Charlie, they totally took that on board and were very helpful to say the least. She said if there was anything that we required then just to ask and they would cater for him. She also is popping loads of stuff in the post so Charlie can study the area. How nice is that!? Just by going on the telephone conversation, I am already impressed with the customer services and we haven't even got there. The boys are already really excited and Sonny asked if this time we can stop by Stonehenge.. I would like to go either, I know they are just a bunch of rocks to some but wonderfully arranged lol..
On to some little renovation updates..
Ahhhh my kitchen finally, has a table. Let me tell you it was a thorn, a thorn, I tell you.. Finding the right size was a total nightmare, but I battled on and ta da there a perfect size table. (ignore the mess at the back I'm still sorting stuff out into their homes)
Ok anyone notice anything strange about this. HMMMMMM I wonder.. Yes it's meant to say bake, but the e decided it was all to much and commited suicide, by throwing itself off the wall and tumbling to the floor where it met it's death.. Let's have a moment please....
Shelves all painted by me, towels not co-ordinating, but in colour sequence. Charlie at the top (he wanted black towels), Sonny next with red towels, me with aqua and mum with lilac. It's not about matching it's about not using each others towels..
OOOOOO I love these, I bought a toilet roll holder and a towel holder. So different I love them to bits..
I can't remember where I got them but they only worked out £6.70 each.. Quite unique.. Until everyone tells me I am way behind on the unique scale LOL!!
Anyhooo another day is completed and some more of the house completed. I had a wonderful day and I hope you do too xx
