More changes in Ethan's room

A little table added.  The study desk (which was never used) was removed.  A rolling bookshelf which houses the guitar amp and attempts to tidy the cable mess...

A knock on the window

This bird was chased by a noisy myna and flew into our kitchen window. It was dazed and I scooped it away to put it in a box for a while to let it recover. After a bit I put it back onto one of the branches of a camellia in the hope that it would recover fully to fly away later.

Progress in the Master bedroom

I think I have finally finished painting...except for the window...and maybe the other tall boy...put some favourites on the picture ledge overhead. It looks bland still but I don't want to clutter it up too much...a chair in the corner would be nice but that can wait.

Lion King

Was unforgettable and all the more so because Pip was enjoying it with me.

The master bedroom

Has suffered from neglect. It's never been painted or shown much love. The time has come. I decided to paint it in stages...one wall and trim at a time.  It's a large room and we do have to sleep in it at night so I have to let the paint dry and the fumes dissipate as much as possible so we don't inhale too much of it when we sleep.  Then I moved furniture around.  Yes the some of the wooden furniture will be painted too to lighten up the feel of the room. 2 more walls to go and then into the walk in wardrobe area.

Another room rearrange

Pip's room again...moved bed to the side of the room where the power point resides to save me from having to drag an extension cord around to power lamp and other electricals when it was on the opposite side of the room.  She wanted a big mirror in her room to make it look larger so I took the dresser top mirror from our room and attached it to the wall. All the wall hangings have come off and she's re-evaluating what she wants back on...
