These pictures are of the (almost) finished room:
There are still a couple of things to finish but nothing that has to be done before our first guests arrive tomorrow. I need a picture for above the fire place and the mirror needs to be fixed on the wall but they can wait.
I was busy all day today ironing the bedding and making up the bed, cleaning the window, ironing and hanging the curtains plus the usual everyday chores. Somehow I managed to reach my current steps target without leaving the house!
I'm pleased with the way the room has turned out but I'm going to take a break now until after Christmas before starting on the next room. My daughter hopes to be moving to a house in December so I'll be helping out with that and all the kids will be around at Christmas so I want to be prepared and not chasing my tail at the last minute.
Although you can be too prepared. The supermarket that I do my online shopping with has priority booking for Christmas slots. I was all organised with a reminder set on my phone to book my slot on 26th October. I went online. Nothing! No slots beyond 15th November.
I was about to phone customer services to see what was wrong but decided to recheck the e-mail first. I'm so glad I did - the slots open on 26th November! But it makes a change for me to be so keen and ahead of myself!
