Michael undid the boys' bunks and they became two single beds again - much better for air flow.
I spent the next three days, between other tasks, sorting through the amazing amount of STUFF that came out of that room! Looking at the pic now it's an odd pic, because it's not the 'right lighting' so the colours look strange... a daylight pic would be better (note to self for later)... on the topic of colours, I'm contemplating more of a colour theme along these lines
But what's there will have to do for now. Along the way, while dealing with the 'post-room-stuff' I reinforced to myself the way I would like our home to be, and donated or worm farmed or otherwise dealt with the stuff that doesn't fit with that vision. It's refreshing. Then I applied that as I worked through the house. The backroom is still a stumbling block, as is the Master Bedroom BIR but for now, a start is good.
I tidied and organised and baked all sorts of things and thanks to N I finally sussed out not burning the schamozzle out of the bottom of the pot when making popcorn - woot woot!
Home popped popcorn apart from not having all the weird things in it, is very efficient - there were barely any unpopped kernels at the bottom compared with the zapper (microwave) version.
Finally, I had to laugh when I read 'Squeezing in some Creativity' on this blog - the description of
basically making me a topless baby carrying, one-handed crazy crafty lady still trying to take care of the other littles while tripping over the toy laid en floor and just. sighing. Oh how very blessed we are even in the apparent chaos!...it really is that way sometimes!
