The decorator I booked came round and quoted me just shy of £1100 to do both bedrooms, all inclusive excepting buying wallpaper and carpets, and fitting carpets. I just can't afford that - that's a good portion of my kitchen right there.
And I appear to be ill, so I'm just feeling overwhelmed with the work that's got to be done and the shrinking amount of time left to do it in. I'm going to have to take time off work to do it.
Then to top it all off, the kids were tired and ratty before bed time, with J escalating his bad behaviour. Thankfully he didn't wet the bed or carpet (as he has done in the past; T did warn us that he was threatening to though). Instead he pulled the curtains off and also tore off strips of wallpaper.
All just really rather depressing. I think I'm going to play a game for an hour or so while trying to wake up, then do some of the last tasks before sacha37 comes over to help prepare the walls.
