TABLE TENNIS TABLE IN MIDDLE OF HOUSE!! JUNK ROOM NEVER ENDS






WOW HOW TIME SEEMS TO BE LITERALLY FLYING BY SO FAST...IT WILL BE CHRISTMAS BEFORE WE ALL KNOW IT!!

AS ALL YOU LADIES KNOW I JUST LOVE DECORATING AND REDECORATING...BUT I NOW HAVE THE SITUATION THAT I HAVE A TABLE TENNIS TABLE SLAP BANG IN THE MIDDLE ROOM OF MY HOUSE..IT IS THE MAIN KIND OF WALKWAY ROOM BETWEEN THE BACK AND FRONT ROOMS OF THE HOUSE....

THIS IS THE PRICE ONE PAYS FOR TRYING TO KEEP ONES CHILDREN AT HOME AS LONG AS POSSIBLE!! WITH ONE SON LIVING IN JAPAN I WANT THE YOUNGER ONE TO STAY HOME..AND I HAVE LET HIM SET HIS TABLE TENNIS TABLE UP IN THIS ROOM...IT IS GREAT IN THAT HIS FRIENDS COME OVER AND PLAY..BUT IT ISNT QUITE MY IDEA OF DECORATING...
ANYWAY I HAVE TRIED TO MAKE THE ROOM LOOK A BIT BETTER WITH SOME BOOKCASES...MY TREADMILL (WHICH I HATE TO SAY I HAVENT USED FOR SOME MONTHS!!)...

THE OTHER GRIPE I HAVE THIS POST IS THAT I HAVE A STORE ROOM WHICH IS MEANT TO STORE ITEMS LIKE THE VACUUM CLEANER...GOLF CLUBS..TENNIS RACQUETS..ETC ETC...BUT NO MATTER HOW OFTEN I CLEAR IT OUT..IT COMES BACK TO BEING FULL OF "YOU KNOW WHAT!!" IS IT JUST ME OR DOES EVERYONE JUST SEEM TO ENDLESSLY GATHER STUFF???

SOOTY HAD HIS CLIPPING LAST WEEK SO HE NOW LOOKS LIKE A POODLE RATHER THAN "OSCAR THE GROUCH"...HE IS SOOO SKINNY I AM WORRIED HIS LEGS MIGHT SNAP!! BUT HE IS STILL MY LITTLE CUTIE...

I HAVE JUST BEEN BUSY LISTING EBAY GOODIES AS WITH CHRISTMAS SOON UPON US..I WANT TO SELL AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE NOW AS I DONT REALLY DO ANYTHING OVER DECEMBER...

AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST..I HATE TO SAY BUT I AM 51 NEXT WEEK..AND MY DAD WILL BE 85 (SAME DAY)...SO I HAVE HINTED TO HUBBY WHAT I MAY LIKE AS A PRESSIE...WE SHALL SEE WHAT EVENTUATES...IF ANYTHING!!

TAKE CARE EVERYONE XX ANDREA

Aagh!! I know what you mean!! No sooner do I clean up the lounge room, then the boys have made a mess again!! Ah, the joys of having children - but that's what a "home" is all about not a "house"!

As a mama, who had six children most of the time (birth, foster, and adopted) I just had to do the best I could around all the living we had to do in the house! I so understand. I was often amazed at what we actually had in the house, that would seem to be more at home outside, but the days are fleeting with children. Well, I know sometimes they come back, but you know what I mean!

My dream is to have a playroom for the kids and a craft room for me...My Mum and Dad always said.. Yes we had a play/toy room for you kids...It was called the whole House!!!
Seems History is repeating itself..

What we do to keep our kiddies at home huh. My second eldest was 20 when he left the nest & his room was like a dump all the time. Now he is 22 owns his own home which I am proud to say is emaculate & cannot stand any mess!!!

Have a great day Sweet

Hi Andrea
Oh never mind about the table tennis table, as long as your kids are happy, who cares for now. I'm a bit over worrying about tidying and cleaning at the moment, as you say you make a big effort, what for though, the junk seems to reappear, more important things to worry about in life I think
Little Sooty looks adorable!

I hear what you are saying Andrea!! I think sometimes we just have to be RUTHLESS! We just had a massive clean out - so much went to the tip and Lifeline. I felt rather cleansed getting rid of a lot of "stuff" but yes its slowly creeping back how did that happen? Mel xxx

Hi Andrea,
I have to say I admire you greatly for wanting to keep your boys at home for as long as possible. I guess the table is probably not in the best spot but I am with you for giving him a space to hang out with his friends.
I am blogging tonight as tomorrow night after work & dinner, I plan to start AGAIN on tidying up...
