Decorating my lounge/diner

Sorry i haven't posted for a while but all my spare time (not that i have any with 2 3 year olds) has been taken up with decorating.
We've lived in this house for almost 6 years and only just managed to afford to do it.
It has been such a massive job but now feeling like we are on the home straight. Have removed the horrible lumpy wallpaper that the previous occupant obviously thought was a great idea, filled about 100 holes in the walls, pulled down the polystrene coving and replaced with plasterboard coving (this is not fun when none of your corners are actually square), painted the ceiling, walls and doors and now just have the door frames and skirting to paint and blind and curtains to make. New carpet has been ordered and we are just waiting to be ready for it to be fitted.

I have loads of things i should be making but no time to make anything. Once i have finished decorating will post some pictures. Hope everyone is well and i will update again soon.

Oh yes and to just add to my list of things to do i have just taken over as Chairperson on the preschool committee. Having never done anything like this before it is a bit overwhelming. I'm sure i'll get the hang of it.

Blind and curtains

Bought my fabric yesterday http://www.johnlewis.com/282640/Product.aspx really pleased with it but no terrified i will ruin it after spending over £150. Hopefully will find sometime in the next few weeks to make a start on them.

Only problem having a pair of 3 year olds i never get much time during the day to get anything done and by the evening i'm too tired to concentrate. Think my mum will look after them for me for a couple of days to give me a good amount of time in one go. So watch this space, hopefully in the next few weeks i'll have a redecorated lounge/diner with new carpet and soft furnishings. Fingers crossed.
