IN BETWEEN...

... it being Monday , and having errands that caused the usual in-and-out like a Jack-in-a-box, and walking the boys and visiting my mum and dad (phew!!) I managed to begin stripping wallpaper!! WHAT a boring job that is! I am going to do a little every day ... spreads the boredom and stops my arms feeling like they are falling out of the sockets!!! lol x

NOW having a break .. also remembered I had not posted my picture for...  Alsha's Space: 52 Weeks Word Photo Challenge this week the word is.. PACKAGE.. I did receive a package last week .. BUT.. I forgot I needed a picture! SO.. instead I am going with this one ..


.. my youngest grandson has his birthday later this week and this is his present .. waiting to be wrapped in birthday paper x I save boxes and the family know well that whatever it says on the box.. its NOT what you are getting xx lol x One parcel at Christmas said ..mobile fan.. and turned out to be a pair of slippers xx lol x,, feel free to guess what may be in this one x

We were out last night at the theatre. The youngest grandson was in a concert playing his guitar x The children were all aged between 8 and 18 .. and put on a wonderful show x ALL types instruments and they played for 2 hours xx WONDERFUL .. not all kids hang around on street corners or cause problems x

Wall paper stripping is no fun. What we use here in the states is hot water and Downey(fabric softner) in a spray bottle. Spray it on the paper wait a few minutes and the start scrapping. Your home will smell lovely.

That wallpaper stripping is an awful job - the idea of spreading it out over days sounds good - except I would never want to go back to it and finish!! Love your package - I would not be able to guess what was in it - fabric perhaps? or something else?

Is this the same grandson playing guitar and having a birthday? Is it a new guitar? Or some CDs of his favourite music? I get the feeling that the size of the box doesn't necessarily match the size of the gift....

Love the photo and what a clever idea no one could guess their present!! We used to use a steamer to get the wall paper off at home and yes you are right - it is a boring job!!!
