About a year a go I incautiously mentioned to Princess that it might be an idea if she changed bedrooms with us parents. It's not that she's got a small bedroom as it's about 10' x 11' (that's a "good sized double" in new built houses!!) but ours is bigger at 12' x 15'. I feel that since kids not only sleep in their bedrooms but also play, need lots of toy storage room, floor room, have mass sleepovers etc then it's daft to have the parents hogging the second biggest bedroom in the house.
I forgot about this, but Princess did not. At the time when she asked "When???" I said "Oh, when you're seven or so." Her seventh birthday is on Saturday next. She had not forgotten. She is expecting this bedroom by then, so she tells me. Argh!!!
It is a good idea, but the thought of actually doing the swap makes me want to take up drinking. I am practically teetotal so this is a drastic step, you understand? It seems easier just to obey...it often is with Princess! Unfortunately though our bedroom also houses part of my vast stash and craft book collection, and there's not a lot of places left to put this unless it's up in the much-beloved attic. Oh well..one day, that attic will be my studio. It will have to be, really. There is no other room in this house that could hold even half my stash and craft equipment.
So today being the start of the half term holiday I decide to get started given that I should have a ready supply of child slave labour availible. Currently the slave labour is lying on the floor of the lounge watching rubbish American kids sit-coms, but that at least gives me time to cram my stuff into boxes. Their time will come, hehehe.
Wish me luck.
