Thank You Mr Plumber.

The bedroom was so utterly toasty warm this morning I could hardly open my eyes.  And when I finally did manage to crawl out of bed I  wandered out of my room  to wake Finley and found him gone. 

Panic ensued. I imagined all kinds of toddler Houdini tricks to escape the baby gate. But saw no way through it. Or even over it.

And then a little voice came from under the bed.

Mummy are we having our muss (milk) now?

And there he was, snuggled up with a blanket and his Mummy bear, hiding from the world.

So thank you  Mr Plumber. Because of you I didn’t  hear my son getting out of bed.  Because of you my Mum  will probably be calling social services as we speak.

But I was so scrumptiously cosy…


  1. Love the pretty roses and love the pretty lace but what I love most of all is the reflection of that pretty mirror dancing on the wall above your bed!
    (18 layers on this one, Alison?)

    18 layers? Hmm, now let me see: one mattress cover, one sheepskin cover, two sheets, one flat sheet, one duvet, one quilt, one grey blue blanket, one crochet blanket, plus four pillows at the moment each with 3 layers (pillow cover, and two pillowcases each) and two square cushions…

    That's 9 layers! My mattress is a double pillowtop and once I get the mattress protector and wool/silk underlay on, I can barely get the sheet on.
    Anyway, Just wanted to say, I am so coveting your mirror – I have been wanting one for so long, but simply can't justify it at the moment – they are so expensive here.

    What a lovely room Alison. Personally I find myself coveting that portrait above your bed more than the mirror. And wondering at what a loving man your husband is to live in such a feminine room.

  5. Savannah says:

    Very warm and cozy room, Alison! I love the "feel" of the room and that mirror! Also, congratulations on the plumber job! What a difference things like that make. Have a nice week.
