The big bed arrived, a gorgeous white bed with a lovely heart shape on the head and footboards. The new duvet set was purchased, a beautiful white set, embroidered with a lovely fairy watering her plants from a spotty teapot !!
7pm arrived, Gracie snuggled down into her bed with her blankie and said how excited she was.
7.15pm, Gracie is out of the bed saying she doesn't like it and wants to get into our bed !
7.30pm she's back in bed
7.35pm she's screaming the place down
7.45pm she's back in bed
7.50pm she's down in the lounge asking me (very matter of factly) what we're having for our tea !
7.55pm she's being chased up the stairs by Daddy
8pm, she's screaming the place down again
8.10pm she's back downstairs with a very quick turnaround time and back on her way upstairs.
8.15pm daddy checks on her, only to find the bed empty and Sam's bed containing 2 bodies.
8.30pm - silence.
1.15am - our bedroom door flies open and a little voice shouts "I need a wee".
1.20am - refusing to get back into bed
1.25am - a very tired Mummy climbs into Gracie's bed along with Gracie
1.30am - Gracie attempts to have a conversation with me.
1.45am - Gracie is out of bed
1.50am - Gracie announces she needs a drink
2am - Gracie attempts to have another conversation with me
2.15am - Gracie's jumping up and down on the bed
2.30am - Gracie's jumping up and down on my HEAD
2.45am - Gracie's on the potty .... again
3am - Gracie loses blankie and all hell breaks loose
3.15am - Mummy is in tears
3.30am - Gracie is singing nursery rhymes
3.45am - the birds start singing, but Gracie has FINALLY fallen asleep.
Maybe the cot isn't surplus to requirements just yet !!
Mr Postman bought me this fantastic Japanese fabric today
and I'm hoping that soon he will bring me the gorgous fabric I purchased from Dawanda a couple of evenings ago. If you haven't purchased anything from Dawanda yet, you really should give it a go. Especially as lots of the sellers are taking part in an 11% off promotion whilst Euro 2008 football matches are taking place. Basically, as soon as the game has kicked off, the participating sellers have their items reduced automatically by 11% for the duration of the game. Now, how can you turn an offer like that down ?!
Enjoy your weekend !
