Pre Christmas Clear Out and Build!

Today I kept with my pre-Christmas tradition of buying new stuff for the flat, then getting someone in to build the stuff!

Last year I did this on 21st Dec and it involved completely re-organizing the boy's room!

So here's the result of today's aching back and 14'500 steps!

New shoecupboard (to hide all the foot-related junk), new stool for me in the kitchen and new Dyson installed in the corner of our bedroom (no room anywhere else!)

Lovely new chair for our bedroom, so I have somewhere to read and knit, plus some lovely orla kiely cushions for our sofa (passed on from a friend!)

I then cleared out half the cellar and stored it in our laundry room - thankfully no complaints from our neighbours :-)

And then I played cellar jenga! Mr.ncot still needs to sort his books and get all of them on the shelves... But we're getting there and at least we can get in the cellar now to look for stuff!

And now my back aches, but the flat is looking pretty good!
