They came, they painted, they conquered!!

Well the day finally dawned. D day as in decorating day !! Kirsty was the first to arrive and we had to have a long chat and catch up of course. we then found out that the others werent coming till much later so we promptly dispatched ourselves to Starbucks to discuss tactics lol. She has been expressing concern about me lately as she thinks I am stressed. Its not that its just there is so much going on in my head at the moment. So her grand master plan is to turn me into a list maker. Sort of divide and conquer I think. I have to write lists of things, things to do, things that are worrying me, things inside my head. In fact lists of anything just to get it out of my head. So where do you write these lists?? In a beautiful list writing book of course! So I am now the proud owner of a beautiful new journal courtesy of the . It has a beautiful silk cover and exquisite beaded butterflies and perfectly matches my bedroom colour scheme, of course! lol

Well we finally headed home and started on the decorating. We are painting the lounge and dining room with natural Hessian , and the kitchen with white , yes white! I was in charge of the part above the delph rack because I am the tallest and she was in charge below seen as she is a short arse lol

Yes they are circa 1985 leggings, coordinated beautifully with ankle socks.

Just after tea the lovely Carolyn turned up and we quickly cracked on.

Time passed quickly and tummies were rumbling so i was dispatched to the local Chinese for a takeaway, yummy.

This is just Cas,s order Lmao!!

After filling our bellies we didn't half crack on. Kirsty was painting so fast she seems to have worn out the brush. I, ll dock it off her wages!!

The lovely Liza T finally polled in about 10m ish. You know on 60 sec makeover when the designer comes swanning in and moves everything around? Well you get the idea!! So we banished her to the kitchen with a roller.

We painted until 2.30 am (well me and Liza T stuck it out!!), then curtains were hung rugs were hoovered and cushions were plumped. Apparently its called "dressing the room" lol, and here's the result so far.

Its going to look sooo fabby when its finished isnt it.. I have to say that I think I have the bestest, bestest bezzie mates in the whole world. Thanks each and every one of you ladies, I love you all!!!

Havent time today so tomorrow is all the lowdown on Mr Pickles visit.
