Tears and tantrums

THERE’S been tears, tantrums (the first ever really and I wasn’t around to see it thank God) but finally for the first time ever in this blog’s life but the room is in a state I can live with, okay live-ish with.

But she made a huge effort after trying and succeeding to defiantly NOT do it for God I have stopped counting how many days now but it is more than two weeks.

Over that time there has been doing anything but tidying, sulks, strops, earnest pleadings of ‘I WILL do it, really! and a mini-tantrum/hurricane in my room over the tidying/life/teenage angst and the like.

And today we have crossed the hurdle of the largest pile of sh*te in the world, it really was, tourists were taking pictures of it and everything.

Now in fairness there’s still a bit to be done and I will probably do that with the help of herself. But she has done a cracking job and I am delighted. My Mothers’ Day present is just over a week late, but better late than never.

When the room is completed I may just post a picture for you all to coo over to give her lots of pats on the back.

Yea. Let's see the evidence... I mean the photo of the Mum with the smile on her face.

I ended up doing my daughter's bedroom myself, it was two days of self inflicted torture, but it's done.

Perhaps the Young Wan's room will be all finished in time for the North American Mother's Day? You can celebrate twice.

I read that earlier Emma and I have just been mad busy in work and home so I have been too neglectful of mine and other's blogs.

Soon soon it will all calm down...

But I laughed at your post cos I think you can read the same relief in both mine and yours:) However to achieve what you have I will need to go in and do the finishing touches which could prove urrghhh. But still she did a great job.

And there will be some sort of photo, it has to be marked in some way:) It might not look that way in a short time.
