Lo-Cal. So-Cal. De-Cal.
I'm all about making nests at the moment. As one of my favourite bloggers Two Tuesdays so aptly put it, I am busy 'feathering my nest'.
It's true. Despite the ever-looming presence of a few boxes containing crap, of which I have little or less than no urge to unpack, I'm starting to settle into small corners of our new abode.
I am loving this space. As I knelt in our bedroom the other night, tidying away shoes (what else would I rather be doing?) I thought - 'Why didn't we do this sooner?'
Right now, the Doctor's room is looking pretty cute (it's a mess, but it's his mess) - despite the absence of block out curtains which I am beating myself up about - because every morning at the spritely hour of 6am he's up. He's up! And calling out 'Someone come and get my breakfast!' at the top of his lungs. The only other someone's in the house are usually Tiny and myself, so unless Tiny gets some burst of domestic goddess about her, it's me, staggering out of bed. Oh how I wish I was one of those people who bound out of bed all peppy, wide-eyed and excited to launch into the day. Instead it's me, with huge bed hair, telling everyone to be quiet, and hitting the kettle for the third time because I forgot it had already boiled.
Tiny, however, is slower to settle in. She's still keeping us up 'til all hours, but we're getting a little more routine, and heck, she's even been in bed earlier than 9:30pm most nights this week. Small progresses, high fives, and she will be in bed (despite the first in bed call at 7pm) before 9pm this week.
I'm thinking of small ways to make her room, 'her room' without spending a bombfunk MC.
I love these decals. You can add to them as you go along. Aren't they the cutest?
Got any ways to freshen up a little space to make it more appealing?
