We’ve just cleared the spare room (soon to be nursery) of all of the old furniture. Bye bye futon, bureau, bookcase, filing cabinet, hello empty space. I say empty but actually there are still boxes everywhere, not to mention the usual selection of random junk you uncover when you start to clear a room, but it is a big step forward. I’m typing away from the new table in the living room rather than my usual spot at my bureau which seems really quite strange but I’m sure I’ll soon get used to it! Actually, it is quite nice. I can just about glimpse the sea through the trees (how I wish we could say we had an actual sea view) and am watching a squirrel leaping around in a tree. I’ve been back to the carpet shop this morning and think I have chosen a carpet. Provided nothing else crops up I should be able to pick it up next weekend. Strange how some things seem to take a lot of planning where others just seem to happen in the blink of eye. Probably easy to say when everyone else has been doing the heavy lifting!
I also need to take the final measurements before getting a chest of drawers. The rather grandly titled spare room is really more of a box room but there is just about enough room for a cot and a chest of drawers in addition to the built-in wardrobe. We’re going to put some extra shelves up in the wardrobe so we can store bedding, towels and other bulky items – something else that is on the to-do list. I can’t wait to actually get some furniture in there so I can finally put all of the baby things away! There is an ever increasing pile of bags taking over our bedroom. I’m beginning to forget what we’ve actually got so I’m really looking forward to being able to go through them and sort it all out. As for now, I’m either going to go and start sorting through the piles of junk or have a little nap…
