new rooms to work on.
On the schedule for April we have the Guest Bedroom
and the Guest Bedroom Ensuite.
This week Fred was away in Luxembourg with work for a few days so I thought I would use the time to really get set in to the Guest Bedroom.
But my original thoughts are not always what my actions turn out to be.
When we moved into this house we decided that we did not want a lot of bedrooms which would be rarely used but would rather decide on the function of the rooms to better suit us.
Hence we have our Master Bedroom with a Dressing Room and one Guest Bedroom.
We also have a sofa bed in the Sun Room which can easily be pulled out when needed and one of those EZ beds which fold up into a very small size and is stored in our Games Room for easy access to be used in the Dressing Room for the few times a year when we need it.
For 6 months our guest bedroom was used steadily as our daughter had come to live with us for that while between finishing her Masters at university and going to South Korea to teach English.
Other than that it is used a few times a year when our son comes over from England and another few times when my sister and her husband come to visit.
It also has built in wardrobes along one wall from floor to ceiling, some with shelves, some with hanging space and some with drawers so lots of storage there and between us and our daughter we have it filled.
So I started with my favourite list app Pocket Lists and produced
The Overhaul List for Guest Bedroom
But before I started into any of these tasks I just went ahead and produced
The Overhaul List for Guest Bedroom Ensuite as well
Well it was going to have to be done sometime this month!
Then of course I was really into the lists and if you have been reading any of the posts in this series you will know how much I love lists.
So does it really come as a surprise to you that I ended up on the Inventory app ABFindit
and instead of overhauling the Guest Bedroom I started the inventory of it instead.
I really did mean to finish the inventory
and start sorting out things in the room
but then I was suddenly distracted completely
because in the bottom of one of the wardrobes was a plain cardboard box
Can you guess what it might be?
- clue is the writing on the top right of box but this is faded now after so many years.
Inside this box was another box
a prettier silvery coloured embossed box.
Any guesses now?
Then inside this box was
our Wedding Album from the 70's
Well that was that; instead of doing any more housework I started doing something I had been talking about doing for ages and ages.
I took my old album apart
and took out the pictures
and did some scanning on my printer
so that I have copies of my wedding photos now on the computer (we never had the negatives just this album - oh and that is another story too!)
Some day soon I will create a digital Wedding Album
and this will be one of the pictures
Of course now I'm well into this a different project which really just should have ended up as one of the things in the ToDo list for this room for after the overhaul and inventory.
But I really enjoyed myself this week so it definitely turned into
Did I do right or should I have been more focused?
