Ok, so part one in my 'get excited' plan is to tackle what will become our nursery. Currently it is hubby's storage room and I am sad to say that the curtains haven't even been opened in several months! Yikes! My husband is a surfer, fisherman and diver and as we don't have a garage he tends to keep all his gear in the spare room. Once upon a time it was stored tidily but as he isn't a tidy person by nature, what starts this way does not stay this way! It is also our spare bedroom and when we first moved in I had it made up beautifully. Now it is still made up beautifully BUT it is hidden under fishing gear which is all over the bed, the set of drawers, life jackets, dive bottles, fishing and dive bags, tackle boxes EVERYWHERE. I can't even GET to the curtains to open them without rearranging the whole mess or attempting to climb over the top of things. As this is our only spare room, I don't think it shouts out to our baby that we are ready for them in the slightest. If the magic stork of fairytales decided to materialise and drop a baby on our doorstep, we would have no room to put it. So, I want to clear the room out in preparation for turning it into a nursery. I thought maybe we could even start thinking about paint colours for the walls and clear out a whole lot of clutter. It's a start anyway!
