It’s finished. The makeover on what used to be a dull brown trunk has been completed. Here’s what it looked like before.
Now it’s pale blue with a linen quilted lining and a pale green trim.
All of the clothes are back in their place and not on the spare bed. This trunk is specifically for vests, baby-grows and clothes they can bum about in. As the trunk stays open for most of the time it makes it easy to just reach in and grab an item when the projectile vomit has just been deposited on to a brand new outfit.
Yes, Ned, I’m talking to you. I know you didn’t like those corduroy trousers but you didn’t have to vomit on them.
Instead of a big brown blob in the middle of the nursery now we have a light blue blob. Much nicer.
It’s not perfect as time is of the essence usually and more often than not there is a baby kicking you in the leg when you’re trying to do something that requires a steady hand.
But we got there.
This little paint job has made the nursery a nicer place to be.
Because we sometimes hang out in here quite a bit. Sitting on a knee or laying on a rug. Or, in Ned’s case, throwing up Exorcist style. Who would have thought that such a small amount of milk could go such a long way.
He’s OK though, I should say that right now, there is nothing more sinister than the fact that he got a little bouncy after his breakfast. The smile I got from him when I was cleaning myself, him and the walls down afterward assured me of that.
Oh yes, much better.
Of course now that this project is finished the fingers start drumming and my eyes begin to dart about the rooms looking for some more mischief to make.
And then I remember Christmas is a mere 6 weeks away and I realise that all the mischief I need is sitting in boxes marked ‘Baubles’.
Ahhhhhhh, the timing couldn’t be better.
I love you. Thank you for reading.
