Millie’s room has had a massive makeover – the first for some years.
The new look is mostly lilac (previously, one wall was yellow, one pink, another green…) which, whilst obviously not a “boy” room, isn’t too “girlie” either.
She also has a bookcase in the corner now, to hold her growing library (previously stacked on the floor) and there’s a little clip-on lamp coming for her to read by in bed. We’ve even gotten rid of a whole bag of cuddly toys (Millie has a terrible weakness for cuddly toys…)!
The massive Sindy house has gone into Amber’s room (to her absolute delight!). Sparkle the gerbil remains in the same place – but the Lovely Melanie is hoping that the old girl, now nearly four, won’t be with us too much longer. Sounds mean, I know, but Millie’s not terribly interested in her and she does make a hell of a mess burrowing into her sawdust…
My contribution to the room was to put the bed together – all the other credit goes to the Lovely Melanie, who has spent evenings and weekends patiently coming up with the colour scheme, scouring eBay for furniture and painting everything in sight. Millie is absolutely over the moon with the new look, which is gratifying, and I’m very impressed, too.
Well done, my clever clever wife!
