Then I picked up three persian rugs... I think they're so gorgeous, hand-made (guaranteed child slave labor free) and gorgeous vegetable dyed colours so they're just beautiful and feel soooo nice under your feet. These are for the livingroom the hallway and our bedroom.
Here is the livingroom, with a half neckid baby who is running around and laughing hysterically as he stomp-stomps his feet on the new rugs because it feels neat! (He was SUPPOSED to be with Nic getting ready for a bath, cheeky little man!)
The hallway, with aforementioned silly baby and the pile of pictures I have to hang up properly.
And my pretty, pretty bedroom rug (well the corner of it) that I just loved the blue colour on!
I still have to get a rug for La's room and the guest room but I spent more than I'd planned on the livingroom one so will have to wait awhile.
Then I went to my second favorite aquarium shop (favorite for fish, second fav for plants) and picked up some Flourish Excell for the CO2 and some CaCO3 stuff to up the hardness a bit, along with the first two living inhabitants for the aquarium - a pair of corydoras melanistius.
(will post photos at a later date when the waters aren't so tanin stained from the driftwood)
Finally I got a neat brass "lamp" candleholder for tealights.
Meanwhile, Hope is sacked out with La at the moment, Cade is holding down the couch, Si is sprawled on the dogbed and Verity aka my own personal blue velcro shadow, is alternating between being Miss Kissy and sticking her nose in my ear and snuffling, so all in all it's pretty good.
