Excuses Excuses

I always seem to have a faberoonie excuse for not posting - here's todays explanation: Ive been decorating.

I have lived with my nasty wallpaper (on the lounge walls) for 3 years (since moving in) and just couldnt stand it any longer.  Its not that the wallpaper offended me in anyway - it was the way it was put on the walls.  Every piece overlaped the other.  The border (which I loathe) was joined in 3 places on each wall - the pattern not being lined up - hey, I think you get the picture.

So after wallpaper stripping, sanding the walls (to an inch of their lives) I have finally got round to the painting stage.  I have completed the stairs and landing - waiting for my new carpet (oh the excitiment), the lounge should be finished by Tuesday.  Im off to IKEA this morning to purchase some toy storage (at last I will be able to hide all the kids toys away instead of them being on permanent show).

Im hoping to post some pics of finished project next week - have a great Sunday (the sun is shining - at long last)

Camping In Suffolk

Its been nearly a month since I last blogged - just where does the time go. 
End of school term was busy as usual, but at last the kids were on holiday and off we went camping to Suffolk.  The campsite was just wonderful, the kids had a ball.  Here are just a few of the photos I took of our week:

We had direct and private access to this wonderful beach - only a 2 minute walk from the campsite
