Each morning I was finding more and more paint lying on the floor in the boys room, the ceilings were a little worse for wear and needed some urgent attention.
We found lots of these, those of you with boys will recognise them as magnetix. A favourite pastime of the boys when they were supposed to be sleeping. Magic! they stick to the ceiling.
We stripped for six hours and decided we only had 5 days not 5 weeks. So we peeled back only the bad bits.
Each ceiling has it's own unique pattern and they are just beautiful.
It's been exhausting but rewarding and well worth the $1000's of dollars we have saved, my only gripe would be this little paint sperm found on my blind a little too late to wipe off (it wasn't me). I guess we'll have to live with him.
On another note, what I should be saying is Happy New Year and telling you of my resolutions, something along the lines of spend more quality time with the kids, go to bed earlier and make the most of each morning, drink less wine and exercise more, sew more and perhaps even make a little money given that I will have 3 child free days this year and lastly s-l-o-w down..........well these are my resolutions and I hope to stick to them.
The other thing I must say is a huge thank you to YOU........... all my lovely readers and followers, your thoughts and comments really do mean so much to me and I hope to blog a whole lot more this year too.
Tomorrow we are off to meet the kids in Wagga and spend some time swimming, BBQing with special friends and some quality family time just hanging and keeping things slow and simple.
