This weekend we have mostly been...
Attempting to decorate the living room on an average of four hours sleep a night, with two very loud and demanding young boys and one naughty cat.
It is a work in progress.
Sunday afternoon we were quite pleased with how much painting we had managed to get done.
We were foolish enough for probably about two minutes to think that all was going to plan.
Enter the cat.
I do not know who let the cat in but whoever it was has much to answer for.
Tink (the cat) ran in the room and realised something out of the ordinary was going on. She had a bit of a meltdown about the furniture being in different positions to normal and then not knowing what to do with herself decided to jump into the tray of paint.
By this point I was screeching, the kids were laughing and the husband looked ready to throw the cat out of the window.
He pounced on the cat in some sort of rugby tackle move unlike any I have seen before just as she reached the stairs.
The carpet was saved, the footprints on the laminate were cleaned off.
All was not lost.
I expect the decorating of our small living room to be completed by 2014.
