There’s a photo update coming this evening, I PROMISE.
In the meantime, we’ve been doing the bedroom up to give us more space. One IKEA Tromso loft bed, one IKEA Expedit shelving unit, a few other bits, and we’re on the way to doubling the space we’ve got. It’s a way of getting David ready to move into his own room, and a way of giving the cats a little more room. The loft bed works really well, because the ceilings are so high here: I can comfortably stand next to David’s cot, and I can comfortably sit up in bed.
We’ve still got some more to do: there’s crap to clear out, pictures to put up, David’s new night light to attach to the wall, things to reorganise, and as soon as that’s all done I’m taking the hoover and the steam cleaner to it. There’s going to be a rug and a cat tree where the massive pile of Stuff is, and we’re going to get rid of all the things we don’t need any more. (I LOVE Freecycle.)
Some pictures: (and yes, that is a pissed off baby in his cot: see end for explanation!)
This is Wily, the first time he discovered how to get up the ladder, but not how to get down again. He now adores the bed and spends most of his sleeping time there.
There will be more pictures and an update on everyone else if I ever have time to do it later.
Just going now to sort out a pissed-off baby and a pissed-off Eric: Eric had his injections today and the car trip hasn’t agreed with either of them. We’re trying to Cry It Out again this week, after his Nana picked him up every time we put him down for a nap on Sunday: thanks a lot, Mum.
Bed, duvet cover, mirror, bookcase, lamp, wall lights, cot bumper, mobile, under-cot storage and all the drawers are from IKEA. Spotty blanket hanging on the bed is Green Baby, and purple blanket is Babysoy from Bambino Land. Cot used to belong to me when I was a baby, from Mothercare. Ginger kitten is from the RSPCA. Let me know if there’s anything you like that I’ve missed!
