Happy New Year!

001  

Happy New Year Everyone!

I want to take this opportunity to thank you all for visiting me and my family via Chez Larsson and I'd also like to say thanks for all your comments and e-mails. I love to hear from you!

Can't quite belive it's only been a little over seven months since I started blogging and I've loved every minute of it and your feedback is largely why its been so much fun.

Next time you hear from me it's 2009! Yay!

Ps.Thanks also guys for the Homies nominations, didn't quite make it to the finals this year although I did get quite a few nominations :) But go on over to Apartment Therapy and vote for Anna, Nicole, Holly, Victoria or one of the other great finalists!


Painting

004

Today I painted. Lost quite a few brain cells too in the process. Very smelly, that floor paint. Then I painted some more. And a little bit more. And I painted again. Again. And some more.

Did I mention I painted today?

Oh, for those of you who want to join the disco downstairs, feel free. I left the radio on sitting on a shelf and now I can't get to it to turn it off because the floor is painted. A very Donald Duck moment.

Ps. I forgot to mention that I painted today.


Official Messy Day

085 

I proclaim December 29 to be Official Messy Day. At least here in my home. OMG! You should see the place. It's a tip!

So as not to scare you off completetly I'm showing a pretty photo at the top. Besides from being Messy Day it was also wonderful weather wise which I only noticed because I had to go into town to get more paint and supplies. I did sneak a couple of minutes in the garden with my camera as I got home.

Other than those few minutes and the necessary trip to get more paint I've been spending the day in the basement. I've done quite a few things in the boatroom already and still have one more thing downstairs before I quit for tonight. I'm writing this while I'm waiting for the floor and trim to dry after sanding it, vacuuming and cleaning it. I still need to caulk some gaps before painting tomorrow.

In order to be as efficient as possible I'm doing a few things sort of simultanously. As stuff dries downstairs I've reorganized Wille's Expedit and am currently tiding his "cabinet de stuff". Will do a bit of sorting in front of the TV later tonight.

Boy, there's stuff everywhere. AND I'm not even showing you the dishes that have not been done in the kitchen, the duvets drying in the dining area, the unmade (no duvets) beds, the unhung load of laundry and the absolutely filthy downstairs bathroom. Yuck. Double yuck!

I have crossed out the tasks I've completely finished on my list so if you want you can have a peak.
