You know that zombie-like feeling you have after a night of no sleep? Well that's me today. I crawled into bed finally at 7:40 this morning, and Vicki had me up again at 9:00. The kids were tag-teaming on whose turn it was to wake up and "need me in the bed", to quote Harry. All. Night. Long.
Needless to say, I didn't make up a meal plan and grocery list to cater for the workers helping us muster starting Friday. I didn't do any book work. I didn't wash sheets and make beds up. I didn't start painting the kitchen. I did consider installing a volume knob on Vicki, who's just discovered her voice but not how to control its volume. And I did rebel against making dinner and dug some frozen spag bol out of the freezer. Well hey, it's still home cooked, right?
So anyway, here's the start of a mood board i'm putting together for the guest bedroom, which is pretty much a blank canvas at the moment. I'm thinking girly/vintage/elegant/a little pastel/a little excessive. Hopefully the main inhabitants won't be blokes of the stock agent/musterer/truck driver variety. They may not appreciate the vibe quite as much as, say, my mum.
