Productive days...

Ok, before I start listing all the stuff I've done in the past couple of days, I first want to show you a couple of happy snaps...
Here are my three big boys ready for afternoon tea at Nanna and Pa's - handsome fellows aren't they? They all seem to look good in black, even though Luey looks a little washed out in this photo (did he really have two top buttons undone, I didn't notice that on the day), the flash on my new camera doesn't like him...

Little Ari boy having a snooze at Nanna and Pa's with his new lullaby Elephant (VERY soft, lights up, terrible synthesized melody)...

Here's Ari in his inflatable toy ring thingy yesterday afternoon - he likes it in short intervals...

Ok, so moving right along to how productive I've been in the past couple of days...

Yesterday I:

  • Took down the Christmas tree and all the decorations and packed them away (including all the cards on the dining room wall)...
  • Moved Bryn's table and chairs into the boys' room - the bigger boys had been asking for this to happen for a few weeks already...
  • Moved the change table back into the Master bedroom (not necessary out in the loungeroom now that I'm in the bedroom throughout the night)...
  • Moved the small desk from the hallway to where the change table had been standing, in preparation for starting work on my novel...
The today, I did two loads of washing, and tidied wardrobe in the Master bedroom, so that it went from this:




To this:




And from this:



To this:




And finally, from this:



To this:



Then I did a bunch of small jobs that had just been floating about for a while:

  1. I cleared out the paper tray on the microwave...
  2. Cleared out the "bits and pieces" from the glass crockery cabinet...
  3. Cleared out my paper holder above my desk...
  4. Put my brother's phone number and address in my mobile...
  5. Put a bunch of photos in an album...
  6. Filed away paid bills...
  7. Folded a basket of washing and put it away...
So, I'm pretty pleased with my efforts for today...
