Renovations




Well for those who have known me for a while will be well aware that we have been renovating our little house for quite some time. And we are still at it, I would think we may have been finished if we did not decide to go on holidays and live life along the way.

A wise woman said to me one day that the kids will remember the holidays but not a freshly painted wall and I am agree wholeheartedly.

I am happy to say that we did not decide to go away recently and made the executive decision to see if we could paint our bedroom which would mean we could actually say that we had finished a room.

The photos below are of the room before, The white rectangular shapes on the wall are where the old wardrobes were and not shown in this shot is the frieze that I had already removed from around the top of all walls.

Before
We have lived with this lovely (ARRRRRGH) shade of pink for the whole time we have lived here, So you can imagine my delight when I saw the results of the finshed product.




After



We are both very happy with our new room and have decided it is time to finish the down stairs bathroom. Will keep you updated.
Thanks

Where he got to in 2011

I have been wanting to write this post for some time now but with christmas and a very busy January I am just managing to get to it now, So I am really proud to give to you my little man B's latest and longest piece of work he has ever produced. Written with enthusiasm which makes us all very happy.
So here we go the latest addition and a great way to end the school year in 2011


It all started at a little village called One Tree Hill Road and at a little house there was a little boy called Jack and he lived with his Father and Mother.
One night Jack went hunting for food. He found a red egg.
When he went home he hid the egg in some hay.
The next night the egg started to hatch into a dragon, a red dragon. Then the dragon breathed blue fire onto Jacks hand which made a spiral shape, then Jack fell asleep.
Then the next morning the dragon was hungry then the dragon saw a rat, then the dragon ate the rat.
Then Jack taught the Dragon to fly,then the dragon flew away and the dragon grew into full size then came to Jack was amazed mean while at jacks house his father was attacked by Rarsacks. The Jack came home and saw his father dying so Jack finished his life so he didn't see his father suffer.
Jack was angry. Some man came to see what had happened his name was Brock, He said we must go, Jack said I have to bury him, Brock said I will set the place on fire.
Then Brock set the place on fire. In a minute the place was a huge fire . Then Jack was upset, then they set off into the jungle and they rode on the horses for a while untill they stopped .
Brock and Jack will we make camp here said Brock, Jack said will we be safe? Brock said Yes as long as nobody see's us we will be safe here. Then they set up camp. then it became night. Then they went to bed they saw nasty mean growlers, they ran away from the growlers. Brock said that was close and quick lets go so we can get some sleep.
Brock you stay and ambush the growlers.


And the story  may continue, We are so proud of his efforts so far.
