Making up for lost time

I week between posts? I really didn't intend for that to happen but I have been feeling pants with a cold (woman flu) over the last week so something had to give. The Winter Living Room is coming along nicely and the sofa is being delivered at some point today which means we can stop sitting on the floor at night. We do have sofas in the other room but for some reason the boys would rather camp out on the floor to watch TV on the nice warm carpet. This weekend bought me an experience that I thought I would never ever have. On Sunday morning, just as we were about to go out, Matthew came downstairs with guy liner on. So we ignored it and went ten pin bowling and then clothes shopping for the boys before ending up in Pizza Hut for lunch. At the end of the meal we all had to sit and wait while Matthew went to the boys room to go and fix his makeup !!!! We just sat there stunned, totally stunned. I think we may be progressing from a goth in training to a full blown goth, the lipstick and nail varnish will be next.

A little catch up for yesterdays word on HSMSHS. This is one of the new cushions that are sitting patiently on the floor waiting for the sofa to arrive, very glossy I am sure you will agree.




This is the light that is keeping me warm while I type this. We have no boiler at the moment as the old one is outside and the new one is on the kitchen floor in a box so it is freezing here, hence the heater.


And finally I couldn't resist this one ...

This is the new remote control light switch in our new room a boys toy if ever I saw one!

The plumber has just arrived so I am going to make him a cup of tea before I make a nice sweet potato and chilli soup to warm me up at lunch time.

All gorgeous shots Rach and I cant wait to see your room when its done!

As for the guy liner, hmmm I wonder if I'll ever be in that situation with Ben lol

Love all your shots, Rach! The light switch looks cool!

I quite like guy liner, so long as it's not overdone. I think if I was young again, I would definitely be a goth. I just love the look.

With that dimmer even the switch is fancy - how much did it cost - is it something I should be thinking about investing in, or is it just another remote control that I am just going to end up loosing??!

Matt and the guyliner - interesting development!

I'm kinda growing out my Goth streak now :( but I've grown into Emo which I'm sure can't be that good lol - don't worry no cutting

My brother didn't do goth he went for metal head! Apparently in his book metal head is better than Goth or Emo!
