Organise ... Excitement

After a busy week I got home yesterday to find my hunny unloading the car with the makings of my new cupboards for my scrapbook room .. to say I was excited is an understatement!!!! 
My poor room is in an absolute shambles at the moment and my creativity is lost somewhere in there!!!

I had to take a photo of these gloves as they are the epitome of my amazingly hardworking hunny ... who does things with a smile!!!  How did I get so lucky??? 

The first one built and standing in place!!!
After dinner Connor and I went to fetch Liam and when we got back the second cupboard was built and before I knew it the third one was done and we moved them into place ... by this time my hunny was exhausted and he packed up and called it a night.

This morning we got up, got ready and went to Builders Warehouse ... had breakfast at the Coffee Spot, got some hardware for the cupboards but unfortunately they did not have any shelves and it would mean buying a HUGE sheet of board, cutting it and then edge it ... so we looked online and ended up going to Timber City in Alberton after dropping Mom at the casino.  We had a fun trip home with the boards in the back of the car and the front seat as far forward as possible with Connor stuck with his nose nearly on the windscreen!!!  When we got home my hunny was back at it while I slept on the couch (a very unusual thing for me to do!!!).  I woke to Wendy, Graeme and Jarod in the house so I got up and made coffee.  Connor left with them to sleep over tonight.
  I have decided exactly where Mr Humpty Dumpty is going in the new cupboard.
This Humpty Dumpty was knitted by my Mom in 1976 (a school project for my sister Noleen) while sitting next to my Gran's hospital bed ~ unfortunately there is some sadness attached to this toy as my Gran didn't make it out of the hospital.  It is looking a bit worse for wear but is very special and will get a place of pride in my scrapbook room as it still makes me smile.

The next time you see a photo of this room it is going to be super organised and I will be working up a storm!!!
Hope your Saturday has been super relaxing/productive and whichever one it was that it was just the kind of day you were hoping for!!!
