So the sissal carpet was successfully laid in the cellar, meaning the big rug currently residing in our bedroom and all the furniture scattered around the house could go down.  Except I couldn’t do the manual work by myself which meant waiting till late last night when the husband got in (poor husband)..and the big rug had 6 months of builders dust ingrained into it (attractive)(it was sitting on the floorboards where the wall was taken down)…so the only sensible option was to man-handle it down to the kitchen, move everything out of the way there and steam clean it..


Then it went down into the cellar…I love big rugs..but they are buggers to manoeuvre..


Next the sofas were dismantled.


And reassembled..with new covers.


Which was great..


Except my house now looked like a bomb had hit it.

Tomorrow is Charlie’s seventh birthday and I’m hosting 13 children for a Harry Potter party.  Why??

    I don’t know how to stay upright, with the amount of work and chaos you’ve been dealing with! It’s going to look amazing but what a journey. Happy birthday to Charlie!
