I am busy trying to set up a new blog (slowly but surely right?) but every chance I get to blog - has been spent working on the new blog - it is a catch 22 LOL
The week that was?
Still working on the cool project. Finally sorted our new gift certificates and got the ones ordered printed and done. LOVING checking off to dos - not the daily ones but the big ones!
I have a huge binder with all the changes to PWL in it - each area has a concept and then some action steps. Took a while to design the folder but it works SO freaking well! and it is awesome to check stuff off.
I had a shoot on Sunday a rare thing for me - we moved Saturdays session to Sunday. We met up Spoon - and decided not to waunder too far. There was a prestige car lot that had become vacant and that was some fun, then when i went to move my car I spotted some alleys.. so we pretty much shot everything within 100 meters of the cafe. :) I will share some images soon - waiting on the client to finalise his order. I am really loving some of them tho.
Monday was tough. I hurt my neck, throwing my back pack on the shoot on Sunday. I thought maybe I got a touch of sun - hence the headache but loads of water didn't ease it and Monday was bad. I rested a bit but once I got in the car to get lcohie - i knew it was a bad idea. The only idea as no one is near us and could help but.. a bad idea all the same. I made it about 10 mins into the trip and called andrew to come home as soon as his meetings were done - but he was a good hours drive away. I made it to school - one foot after the other down to prep. Hoping I wouldn't throw up. I pulled lochie out of class early, and we walked back to the car. I climbed in and got sorted before a steering wheel gripping drive home. ugh. Lochie was awesome - he is now big enough to hang out without supervision 100% of the time. I set him up with a movie, took more painkillers and layed down. Andrew got home about 3 hours later and took over. The week has followed on with migranes/headaches and feeling sick but it does seem to be improving.
Before the shoot on Sunday we had ducked out and ordered our new bedroom suite. It arrived, on time, in better condition than we thought it might and was bought inside in about 4 mins. AMAZING delivery service!
It came RTA - which thankfully meant assemble the bed and put door handles on the rest. I can do that. I did the door handles and we did the bed together... L O V E the new bedroom furniture. Proper grown up bedside tables. We used to have small open tables, which were fine. I thought about buying some proper ones but didn't want something boring and OLD. These fit in beautifully. We also got a dresser rather than a tallboy. We skipped the mirror tho. It is perfect because it would fit under the hanging space in a wardrobe/closet if we moved and didnt have alot of room - likewise it holds the screen from the media room at the perfect height to watch movies in bed ;) We did end up going with this one. Having seen it first. ha. sooooo many stores and beds since, but we didn't love any of them - and decided if we weren't loving it lets get the cheaper end. Now we have it - we think it was the better of all of them. Nice simple lines and the finish is fine. (i thought it might be questionable given the price) but it was all good!
My room photography doesn't live up to this photo - hence I am sharing it LOL Give me a toddler and a dog but not a room!
I headed to the bank on Tuesday and found walking around was helping my neck/shoulder. Far better than sitting in front the macs. So I kept shopping ;) forgot to go to the bank altogether! but I did find this great blue vase in Freedom Home (carindale). The clear on is a glass from Wheel and Barrow - I got four for the anniversary party. And I moved all the photos to the opposite wall as our bedhead is too high.
I snapped this the other morning but didn't fuss with the quilt and pillows. I made the bed and then lochie jumped on it and rolled around like a puppy. This is life, not a bedroom catalogue.. so lets just deal with that shall we? It looks nice on the dark carpet tho, and the bedsides offer great storage. there.
I grabbed some aqua/teal place mats for the bedsides so we don't scratch them and made a print for above the bed in the same colour. It is colour on white, and is some graphic flowers i found online. I wondered if it would be too busy but it seems to balance nicely. (print not shown)
Yesterday Mum had lochie so we raced around all day friday doing jobs, and had the evening/day off.. completely off.. PJ day - exactly what we needed. We set up the screen from the media room and enjoyed some TV on DVD.. love watching series this way.
We do need more pillows on the bed to make it comfy tho. I found the big european pillows from the sofa worked well.. they are cheap and fabulous from ikea - i couldn't believe the price of them and can not tell you how comfy they are. I think 2 more of these and some orange covers would be nice. Orange and teal is more unexpected than raspberry and teal and less girly. I just need to check our other quilts and make sure that the orange i am thinking of would work.
And here are again at Sunday. Oh how the weeks fly by. We are still wondering what to do today, but getting out sounds nice.
Have an awesome weekend everyone and hopefully I can be back linking to the new blog soon.
