Yesterday I moved from my upstairs bedroom to the downstairs one in preparation for my son and daughter in law moving in with me. I intended to start by just moving my clothes into the downstairs wardrobe and it kinda snowballed from there! I did it by myself as everyone was away/unavailable so it took me all day!! It's amazing how you can move furniture by yourself by slowly bumping it down the stairs one at a time! Good old gravity!!😂 Although I did manage to smack myself on the cheekbone with the large chest of drawers so might have a lovely bruise for a few days!!
This room was decorated in blue tones almost 3 years ago (photos HERE) so all my purple/green themed bedding/curtains clash horribly. Luckily the beautiful quilt my Lovely Mum made me (photo HERE) is a lovely cream pattern on the reverse. The purple and green will be hidden for now but will definitely reappear in the future.
At the same time, I'm also collecting a mini toaster oven. This one HERE. Frugal Queen regularly mentions cooking in hers so I did the research and it definitely uses less electricity. It will be cheaper to run than my big oven if I just have a few things to bake. Last month I got my half share of an unexpected repayment from an old policy of £67 so it's a free mini oven really!!
