The end of another day

This is what the end of today looked like from my backyard. It was a warm day and it didn't turn out how I planned, but it was still a good day.

This is one part of Mr 13's new room. Malm drawers and Vestby wardrobe from Ikea. He chose a fabric by Prints Charming for the front of his Vestby. It really makes the room feel happy! We moved all his furniture in yesterday and today Bradley did the finishing touches. Put up mirrors, pinboards, and hooks.

Mr 13 has a Tromso loft bed from Ikea too. Miss 10 thinks this could be an Ikea display room because just about everything is from Ikea. Almost.

Miss 15 rearranged her room this week. I live in a house full of interior designers! You might recognise the pink cushion on her bed from Picklestick's blog, she gave the cushion to Miss 15.

One of our unplanned activities today was swimmimg. It was a warm day and the kids wanted to cool off in the pool. The frog sits on top of our thermometer. The water was 26 degrees today. That's my benchmark. Any cooler and I don't go in. But today the water was 26 degrees so I swam too. The water restictions in South Australia decree that you need a pool blanket for a pool. It is one of the best things we have bought for our pool! It raises the water temperature and keeps it warm for longer. We have enjoyed our pool much more since getting the pool blanket. It also stops evaporation too.

We are so glad to be finished Mr 13's room. Now on to the next project. The entry and hallway. Stand by for progress photos of the hallway!
