A change is as good as a rest ...


The past 2 weeks we have had a big change about in our home. It is an odd house with many levels! Storage is very tight so most of our belongings were in boxes under beds, or children sharing a room that no longer suited. 

The main room in everyones home is the living room ... well for us it was just a room that never got used. We are not ones for watching TV at all. Id rather be sewing, kids out on bikes or in their rooms chatting to friends, building lego or doing art! 

So that great big room that ended up as a 'shed for bikes' or 'storage unit' for James' uni stuff over the summer, was a waste of a room whilst we struggled for everyday storage of what we used ...

So ... we had a massive change around in the house! Its been a hard slog ...

I have taken over the living room! Its lovely and bright. New sewing bench up which is lovely and high because I bought the wrong legs ... thats a great mistake haha Sew easier to work at!!

The girls have gone into my old room, One of the boys into girls old room! Now means none of the boys are sharing. Also means the biggest bedroom now has cupboard and unit space for storage!!

The new living room is now in the dining room, which is open plan, plus right next to the kitchen!!

Love it when a plan comes together!

Happy days ...

    1. Yes it was a lot of work, but well worth it. Bikes are in a bike shed. All stuff either went to the rubbish dump, charity shop or into relivent bedrooms!! I've added a photo of my new sewing space in my room. xx
