Just in case you think this blog is ever in danger of becoming selective with the photographs used ( although why you would think that I have no idea!) here is one that was taken on the 20th January to show you a bit of perspective.
This is the view of our bedroom as you come up the mini set of stairs from the half landing. Ok the clothes on the bed have now been put away (soon to be replaced with new ones I'm sure) and the bedding is different but the same view would be had now if you wandered up those stairs. Exactly the same view and yes that does mean that the Christmas tree and box(es) of decorations are still there on the 10th Feb. I do have an excuse but it will just sound flimsy so lets just call me slovenly and be done with it ok :)
