I am in Disarray!!

Yesterday Carl came home from University and he doesn't need to return until October, the end of the first year has arrived. This week I have been trying so hard to declutter the house, I have been clearing out cupboards and getting rid of stuff. So when he came in last night it was soul destroying to see the whole place covered in boxes and bags and the general 'stuff' he has accumulated over the past year.

We have also decided that we are going to have some work carried out in the bedrooms to change the sizes a bit which will mean even more hassle while the work is carried out. I hate living in a mess and I really think by the end of this I will be going mad. I have told Carl and Beth that as its for their benefit I will be expecting some work out of them, particularly Carl. Once the rooms have been altered they will need redecorating and his room will need new flooring and some new furniture. I plan to try and sell his bed on Ebay, they are still selling it in Ikea, so fingers crossed. I just feel a bit miffed that this has happened at a time where things could be looking a whole lot better!!

Today is my friend Madeline's 51st Birthday, so we popped over to see her and give her her presents. She looks fabulous and I am so lucky to count her as one of my close friends. I have known the old girl for ages and ages, I hope that we end up together in the same old peoples home!!!
