just in case I forget...

This morning I spent some time tidying the kids bedrooms and taking some photos of their bedroom...
and there are some funny things I don't want to forget.

Boy 2 has a Big Ted - given to him by my friend Liz. A week ago Boy 2 told me that Big Ted wanted some pyjama pants to go with his 'Big Ted' t'shirt. I had the idea of getting out a pair of Boy 2's first pyjamas - he thought that was pretty cool... so on went the rockets. Last night Boy 2 decided that Big Ted needed a rocket top to match his pyjamas... and hey presto... Boy 2's top fitted Big Ted too. How can Boy 2 have grown so much? He used to be this size!




Boy 1's bedroom always has things stuck everywhere - he draws and creates all the time, and likes to display what he's made... on his door, his walls, his cupboards etc... but one of the funniest of them all is this...
Next to many of our light switches are little pink pieces of paper with a face drawn on them. They are the secret tunnels the teddy bears use! From the show 'The Secret World of Benjamin Bear'. It's going to be hard to remove them! And the 'tunnel colours' will need to go too. They are coloured pieces of paper on the doorways telling us the colour of the tunnel we are about to enter. Boy 1 put them up, and Boy 2 refers to them all the time! (It's an idea from the show 'Chuggington'). Perhaps we can put Boy 1 to work on the tunnel colours for our new house on unpacking day... mental note to self - keep out drawing stuff and coloured paper - oh yes, and sticky tape! The tunnels might actually be useful in helping us to find our way around the very difficult layout of the new house!


I also found time to do some more outside stuff - I keep thinking I've finished out there! But no, there were more things to be sorted and bundled together, and now they're in the shed ready to be moved.

Slowly getting there I think....

Blogging is a great way to record special memories! I hope the packing is going well. Sorry I forgot to tell Anne that you were coming to PG but glad you were able to make it and hope you enjoyed. Only got back yesterday so everything is a bit of a blur at the moment but let me know if there's anything you need done to help with the move.
