Sorry ....

but ive been busy lately ... and its been driving me nuts .. and as im now sat here watching paint dry ... i'll update this!!!

Ive had great fun this last few weeks .. This has been going on for the last couple of years .. you should decorate in here jen .. its looking tired .. it needs updating .. make this your own house rather than mums .. in otherwords .. the living room .. green walls and white ceiling .. my mums colours .. she chose em .... and yes i knew it needed doing .. but it was just easier to leave it .. Anyway one of my sisters had just decorated her house .. and she said i'll donate the paint whats left over and we'll do it. T'other sister .. get cleared out .. and i'll come and help with my niece .. she needs the practice .. seeing as she's doing mine .. you've got two weeks to clear the room, of all the bits and pieces .. and that weekend i'll come up wi niece and we'll do it. Also get the nephews to come up and do the ceiling... So i made a start.

This meant emptying the big cabinet, the bookcase, the computer table, tables, underneath the settee .. deciding what to keep and what to get rid off .. This was a big job .. as its all the stuff that mum had collected over the years ... even found my granny's will .. she died in 1978 .. found old photos .. eventually the stuff i was giving to my sis for a car boot sale was all piled on the settee .. bin was full of old papers and stuff not good enough for a car boot .. the dvds and videos all stacked in a box .. tables cleared .. and all what was left was the computer table. The computer table ive had for about 8 years .. its falling apart .. i got it from argos .. brother put it together .. and its lasted .. so far ... Well i emptied all the stuff .. the cd's, the other bits and pieces that accrue round there .. and then took the computer apart .. and then tried to move it ... big big BIG mistake!!! First one side fell off .. but still standing .. then the shelves at the bottom one by one fell off .. and then oh my the other side fell off .. but it was still standing .. god knows how .. went to next door .. her fella was there .. he put it back together again and moved it so i could get behind it .. and with the warning i wouldnt move it again ... left me to put the computer back together so i could talk to spugs!!!

Then came having to clean all the paintwork .. id bought some sugar soap .. and on the saturday afternoon was feeling brave .. im going to do this ... so started... it took from 2pm to 6.30pm to do ... i started thinking the easiest .. the window .. big mistake .. hurt my shoulders, my arms, my back, my wrists and my neck just cleaning round the window. I still had all the skirting boards and doors to do .. It took so long cos i was trying to do it with a wheatbag wrapped round my shoulders to try to keep them moving .. voltarol was rubbed in .. anyway i finally did it .. i went to bed that night wrapped in wheatbags and a hot water bottle and stinking of voltarol. The next day i was teddy sitting... so knew i wasnt doing anything strenuous ..
