A Lounge With No Toys
I have been a little quiet on the blog, mainly because we have been having a massive sort out at home.
I wrote about it a little while ago, that now we have decided to stay we are moving everyone around, well Boo put a bit of a spanner in the works and declared that he didn’t want to move rooms, but BB still did, so we decided that we would go ahead any way.
Boo’s room was having a clear out, and getting ready to have all of his toys upstairs, BB is going into our room and we are moving up to the top room, and BB’s room will become a small games room, for the hubby and the boys!
It is a huge sort out to be honest, and one that I have been putting off and off, but this week thought I had better start, so that everyone is settled before we all go back to school in a couple of weeks.
The first thing that had to be done was declutter the toys. Boo has hundreds of toys, mainly because they are all from his brother.
I thought it was going to be a disaster but actually Boo was a star, and was great at picking toys that he no longer wanted and was happy to sell them.
Once we sorted that he didn’t have a huge selection left so we were able to get the rest of his toys in his bedroom, which means we have no toys in our lounge.
None at all!
It has been nearly 10 years since we had a lounge with no toys in.
It is amazing.
It is clear and spacious and a really lovely space to be in.
I really do love it, but my god it has left a massive mess upstairs, and it is going to take a while to sort. Boo’s room is very nearly done, but there is loads to do still!
Like us moving upstairs and BB moving into our room.
I had this grand idea I could get it all done by the weekend, before we have a little mini break, but I am sat here absolutely knackered after clearing and tidying consistently until about 2am each night for days and I have had to admit defeat. Us moving, and BB moving will not be happening until next week when we are back. I am so annoyed about it.
But I know logically it is the only answer!
But still annoyed.
So I may be quiet for the next few days!
As I still have so much to do, but when it is all finished I will be posting some photos up here of the final look of everything.
