Project 365 2nd - 8th Feb

This week has mostly been about getting the spare bedroom finished decorating and making it habitable as we have decided on a room move. The couple that live through the wall don't appreciate how loud their music sounds in my bedroom when they come in from the pub having had one or four. They do this Friday and/or Saturday evening, I am up at 6am at weekends to go to work. So this seems a solution to the problem.

 So last night the move in was completed, not telling you what the other two rooms look like as we have decided to paint up the room we were in and put the kids in there and make the room the kids are in into the spare room.


Daughter No1 had been over and she was reminiscing about these spoons. The handles are bent as when the children were younger I use them to take tyres off their bikes to mend punctures. More worrying is realising my spoons are more than 30 years old.



Was over at daughters as I had picked her up something from the shops that she wanted. Here is just to prove home educated children have to work as well.


Was an ok afternoon, not ok enough to go out in the car to find somewhere nice, but ok enough for Bob and I to walk round the village. He did have his camera with him but could not find anything of any interest to photograph. This is him skipping down the street.


Round at daughters again. Here is Minky with his other gran.


Fifi had been to the Scottish Parliament on Tuesday with the school. While they were there protesters were outside protesting about legalising same sex marriage. On Thursday her and her friend E made wedding outfits for the toy dogs. Here is the bride, E had taken the groom with her. She also made a bunch of flowers, the two wedding rings and the meal of haggis. tatties and neeps.


Well we have seen Minky so have to show you Dinky as well. She is watching everything that was going on. I have done an update to the end of January if you want to see a picture from nearly every day last month.


Well this is what was the spare room, but is now ours. The patterned wallpaper is on the two end walls with a beige  *sorry hubby says its natural wicker*  on the other two. There are two windows and we bought a bedding set to match the curtains. A black lampshade on a silver lamp we had in the loft and a small black coffee table next to the bed finishes it off nicely.

Ignore the blue headboard, we need a new black one but not had time to find one yet.

  1. Loving the toy dog marriage. Haggis, neeps and tatties! What a fine wedding meal lol

  2. the move seems like a great idea if their noise is stopping you from getting a good nights sleep, and the new wallpaper and bedding is very smart. Nice to see Dinky awake as he has always been asleep i think before, you can see how alert Minky is . hope you get a great nights sleep tonight Elaine x

  3. I love the memories behind the spoons, how lovely! #project365

  4. I love the wallpaper in your new room

  5. I've had problems with neighbours before but unfortunately no room to change to!

  6. Good idea on the room move, even though you shouldn't have too!!!... But it looks lovely and who knows you may enjoy this room better? #project365

  7. Minks & dinky are just gorgeous & love the memories behind the spoons x

  8. Looks like a busy week, dominated by Grandchildren - gorgeous as always :)

  9. Love the bold black patterned bedding! And the spoon story is great, All sorts of things in my mums house bring back random childhood memories!

  10. glad your settled into you new bedroom, we have the same problem with our neighbours and hubby is up at 4.30am so we understand your frustration.

  11. I feel your pain with the neighbours! Ours are so noisy too, I know that we must make a noise but its only the kiddies playing whereas their noise goes on until late, music blaring out and no routine for their kids! Sometimes their kids are up and about when we are going to bed and they are both younger than my oldest who's 9! Ok rant over! Looks like another great week x #365project

  12. Hope you are happier in your new room! Lovely wallpaper :)

  13. You can't beat a toy dog wedding! Lovely new bedroom too

  14. Love the dog and a good lesson for them also really love the bedroom, when you get that new headboard you wont want to leave the room x

  15. We are very lucky here and don't have noisy neighbours. We left them at the last house!
    We used to use spoons for tyre levers too.

  16. Such a shame when you end up with inconsiderate neighbours!!!
    But loving the look of the new bedroom!

  17. What a busy week you've had. How annoying that you had to move your bedroom because of other people.

  18. I laughed at the spoons 1 my mum has spoons from when I was a kid which are older than those ones! The twins are growing so fast!! Bedroom looks amazing, great colours


Nice to see you stopping by. Thank you for your comment and I hope you stop by again.
