We got a new dishwasher in December, and the old one got put around the back, waiting for the Inorganic Rubbish Collection that happens once a year.
I decided to hold onto the racks. So I put them by the back door.
Stew saw them and just didn't 'get' why I wanted them?
I knew I would find a purpose for them eventually:
ABOVE: Sorted. Useful? Yep you bet they are.
And nope... NO hoarding involved.
I mentioned last night that I had finally found some time to do some sewing. I shall now show you what I made... BUT not before explaining why I made them!
We have two cupboards in our hallway. One has a single door and the other is a double sliding door.
Every time I ask one of the kids to put something away or get something out of one of those two cupboards, I have to expain, in long, annoying detail WHICH cupboard I am talking about.
It drives me mental because no matter how much detail I give them, they invariably open the WRONG BLOODY CUPBOARD!
I mean, there's ONLY TWO CUPBOARDS TO CHOOSE FROM... HOW CAN THEY GET IT WRONG ALL THE TIME???
So, I think I've solved the problem now.
I have made labels for the freakin' doors:
ABOVE: the single door cupboard is now 'That One'.
ABOVE: And the two door cupboard is now 'The Other One'. (This sign has to go on the wall beside the doors, as the doors slide into the wall cavity).
Do. You. Think. They. Will. Still. Get. It. Wrong?
Today? Get Lacy's previous house all clean and tidy, then go over to her new place to help get it all organised.
Get the beds made, linen away etc etc.
Hopefully by tonight they will be living there.
Then we can sit back and relax. Before we go and get the groceries.
Anyone want my headache?
Hi! So I've been busy with Lacy today. We went over to her previous house and finished cleaning and packing, then we went over to her new house.
Lacy put the cot and her bed up, while I hung all the net again. So lucky, the net fits all the windows almost perfectly. I only had to make one curtain wire longer.
I have left Lacy there to have a sleep, then she can work on getting everything put away and placed in the right place.
We shall keep Keera with us until tomorrow... when I will return her to her mother.
Here's a few photos of the chaos at Lacy's home:
ABOVE: dining area.
ABOVE: the lounge... chaos everywhere!
ABOVE: Keera's room. The spare single bed will go on the right.
ABOVE: Lacy's room. It's quite a bit bigger than her old one.
There is so much for her to do yet, but I'm sure once she has recharged her batteries she will crack on with it.
