The gallery – April (with Quentin Blake wallpaper)

April clearly was a month of major happenings in this household, so choosing photo’s for this weeks gallery prompt really wasn’t difficult. April 7th was of course the bean’s due date and as you will have seen from my last few posts Matilda arrived on 15th April and we’re now settling into life as parents. To make things a little bit more exciting we also decided to have our bathroom done at the same time and new carpets up stairs. In fact when the lady of the manor started having contractions our bathroom had gone from this:


To this (yes I had the lady of the manor working while 9 months pregnant!)

It’s now thankfully almost done and we have a lovely new bathroom, I’ll post an update in a few weeks once the finishing touch’s are done. We also finally got carpet in the Nursery, it’s so nice having it all finished. The wallpaper is definitely one of my favourite items in the house now. Here is where little Matilda will be sleeping sometime soon:


So a busy month and it’s only getting busier now that we are a family, I’ll leave you with one final photo that will most likely summarise my April’s for years to come.
