The upside is I get to have his desk in the corner of my bedroom. I have sat here a lot this weekend and written many, many letters, ordered several hundred photos to be printed on-line, found (finally!) Creative Memories stock on Trade Me at a price I am prepared to pay (months and months ago the prices had skyrocketed when the company folded - someone finally put realistic , normal prices on to sell the items - perfect timing for me. Once this is all used, I will flick over to Project Life) and sorted out stuff. I am enjoying the desk and perhaps it will be easier for me to study too. A place to spread out all my pretty writing stuff :)
I've been scrapbooking up a storm too - very basic simple pages to just get it done! And packaging up a few sweet gifts for birthday presents for even sweeter friends. I have also started cutting out pj pants for winter to sew up. The teenager is now spread out in the lounge for the next 4-6 weeks or so... record player included.
I'm looking forward to showing you the progress of the room over the next few weeks.
I have loved this weekend - we have two very tired kids after a weekend at a huge scout camp.
