ahh! Almost organised,



And just as well because school starts again next week. Chicky Babe finally has her new double sized loft bed and all her stuff (well almost all) is now back in her room, Tim has put together a new shed so that Bek and Lauren can put their boxes into it so they are no longer taking up all the room in the patio. Mind you it is so unbearably hot outside- rather like walking into an oven at the moment. with overnight minimums sitting at about 24-26 *C. This is set to continue for at least the next week. Thank goodness for my christmas treat to myself. I had an air conditioner installed in my bedroom.
The girls rallied together with me this morning and we attacked the house, vacuuming and mopping and sorting a heap of stuff back to where it belongs. We have a clear table, quite a novelty around here! (Although I could have ironed the table cloth!)
Thanks girls.
When I moved into this house I bought two Ikea couches, they have begun to sag and the seats seem to droop and they had become very uncomfortable - and causing me a lot of pain as I have a disc bulge in my lower back, not nice. So I took a set of seat cushions into the foam shop and have had new ones made up. It's like a new lounge! (Although Tim is not happy because he can no longer slouch and sloth on the couch -like a teenaged boy! but I think it will be better for our posture and therefore my back pain.)
Now I have a lovely space to sit and enjoy my last few days of holidays and finish off a project or two and maybe a little more lesson prep before term starts next week. Maybe I could make propper slip covers for the window box seats this week so they don't droop out at the bottom as the one on the left is.
