Keeping busy: Reasons to be suspicious of wallpaper!

So it's been a little busy the last week, and if you follow me on keek, you'll probably be guessing where I'm heading with this! :-)

I was due to be packing my bags and heading up north to the seaside for a few days when I got asked to decorate the kids playroom as they would be away .......

They were to be away for a few days on holiday, and it was going to be a surprise - this gave me 8 days to strip the wallpaper and paint the walls...Easy............or not!

So first thing thursday morning all was quiet, and the kids gone, out comes all the furniture, and a mountain of toys, games, teddies etc

Routing 101 progress: Using a router for oh so many jobs!

So it's been a pretty busy few days since the last post, and by now, episodes 1-3 of the router series have been posted on you tube, with Episode 4 just around the corner...

Whilst I enjoy very much making the videos, it's never as much fun as actually doing  the project the video is about!
I also decided to take several pictures along the way, people seem to like pictures more than actually read pages and pages of tedious script it seems!

So, if you've been following my YouTube channel, you'll already have seen the videos that are out.

I asked around on Keek some weeks ago about where to start, and what to cover, after the mixture of replies I looked through, it covered pretty much all aspects, so i decided to start from the beginning: Routing 101
