A little man turned 8

Yes, my little boy has turned eight years old and is growing into a lovely young man, before my eyes. His birthday was a few weeks back, but it's taken me this long to write a post about it.

Barney has never had a bedroom decorated. He inherited his current room from his big brother, who in turn inherited it from whoever lived in it before us. It was a real mess. The carpets w
ere disgusting, the walls were in desperate need of attention, and it was completely cluttered. So, I decided that for a birthday surprise we would decorate his bedroo
m. He hadn't really asked for much in the way of presents, so we told him we were organising a surprise and he would get it when he got home from school.

Well, he certainly was suprised! And delighted too! Here are some before and after photos. His big brother also made a video of our efforts which I shall link to at the end.

These are the 'before' photos....

And these are the 'after' photos....

As well as having his room decorated we did the usually birthday presents and cake thing, so he h

ad the best 8th birthday a boy could have!
The video that his big brother made is here. If you are a relative and haven't seen it yet then
you simply must watch it for two reasons. Firstly to see the fabulous make-over, and secondly to see how talented Badger is at making films!

Here are a few more photos of the birthday boy....



Disappointed in someone or something that one discovers to be less good than one had believed.

Rosie Art

So, Rosie is becoming quite the budding artist. She is not 3 until mid December, but she managed to open 'Paint' whilst I wasn't in the room, and create this masterpiece entirely unaided! I was quite impressed!

Here she is with a drawing of a cat. I drew my cat first and then she copied it. Again, quite impressive! (She is also wearing my Snow White dress which is now about 32 years old and has been worn by all the girls in our family).

And lastly, here she is with her big brother after a good painting session. She was very proud of her work, and both pieces of art are now proudly on display in our kitchen.

Wow, I've really neglected this blog lately. And there has been so much happening that I really want to record. But now that I'm a single Mum to four I find I just don't have the time to blog.

But I must get to it soon and update this thing.
