Long Time no see!

 Guess where I went yesterday? I was So lucky to be asked along on the school media Studies trip to Warner Bro Studio...and see the Harry Potter tour.
I really loved it all . Every detail is taken care of.
Here is Harry's room under the stairs.

 The great hall..all decked out for Christmas.

 Snape, Hagrid and Filch.

 Dumbledor's Office.

 I loved all the little details.

 Outside in Privet Drive.

 The Potters house.

 Hundereds and hundreds of props.

 Outside every half hour it snows!!

 Drinking Butter Beer in Diagon Ally.

 A beautiful painting of Dobby - He is there too.

Just a small part of a magnificent Hogwarts model.

There is SO very much more to see and I will definitely go back again if and when I get the chance.

Battered and Bruised!

No I have not been attacked! 
I have been moving furniture about. Now that Natalie's room is done, I first, cleaned and tidied and remade Dan's bed and room, then, because I had taken a large table out of our room - it threw everything out. So, I changed the room round! Not easy with a very large heavy king sized bed and not a big room. I do have a couple of new bruises ( already had some from doing Natalie's room) and a new scratch or two- Off for a bubble bath...sigh

All Done (ish)

 I need to get some boxes so I can organize her craft supplies

 I also need to get her new single quilt - this is her old double one ( we have a new duvet cover - its purple!)

  The bed used to belong to her cousin Rosie ( who now has a cabin bed). Its perfect for here.

 The long table was bought for our room to go along the bottom of our king sized bed but it just gets in the way, so is ideal for Natalie . She has her TV , PC and even room at the end to craft. I need to get her a chair as this is an old dinning room chair.

 As you can see, I am also waiting for the curtains to arrive - I will probably have to put up her old ones for tonight.

 I have promised cushions for the bed too ( she wants owl shaped ones!!)

 I could do with a low table or box to put the printer on .

 We had to pop to the local hardware store when i was ready to put the shade up as there was a vital piece missing from the light fittings!

 The photo frames need photos in them too.

I wonder how long it will be tidy for - normally you can't see the floor!!

BTW - The rest of the house looks like a disaster area!

I shall be finishing off in here.
I have to:
put up a curtain pole and curtains
Assemble bed
Assemble bedside table
Move all clothes back into wardobe
Put work table in 
put TV and Pc back 
Sort all craft supplies out.
And move daughter into room :)

Photos later

Nearly done

 Floor down - just need to trim along edge.

 I was very lucky to get this in the sale as a remnant - So much easier to clean for Natalie and it lightens the room.

 Unlike the wallpaper - As usual I bought far too much ! I only needed a roll and a half but bought three.

Tomorrow I need to put up the curtain pole, the bed and bedside table, desk and put all her clothes etc back into the room. yayyyyyyy

Tired but on Track

 This is what eldest daughters room looked like on Sunday when I started to clear it. I decorated it years ago - she is now 28 and was a teen when i first did it. Purple is her fav colour -hense the carpet and walls. The boarder pulled off paint with it when i removed it  :(

Blocked gutters caused this all sorted now though.

 Natalie has learning problems and also dyspraxia- I don't know if this is why she finds it so difficult to tidy up or if she is just lazy! I don't do it very often as i think she OUGHT to have a go. I can tell you quite a bit of this went in the skip!!

 She likes to scrapbook and make things , so I will be trying to organize her space better for her

She is messy with her DST and stickles - so that carpet will go and be replaced with something easier to clean!

 Polyfilled the walls and painted the woodwook on Monday.

 also painted the ceiling- much better!

 Two coats of violet white on three walls  today (Tues)- Needs one more though as I can see bits of that turquoise paint showing through .

Getting there -just having a late lunch and then one more coat of paint on those walls.
I still have one wall to wallpaper and furniture to paint and a curtain pole to put up.
Hopefully tomorrow I can lay the flooring and put the bed together.
Then Thursday start to move things back in :)
Watch this space!
