Rest is not a matter of doing absolutely nothing. Rest is repair - Daniel W. Josselyn
Zoë’s room is definitely in need of repair and instead of resting over the Christmas holidays, we have decided to crack on with the decorating. The wallpaper has been stripped off and the walls underneath are quite a mess – bubbling and peeling paint, holes and cracks.
This morning we have got up early and made really good progress on the room. The walls have washed, sugar soaped and treated for mould - they will be ready for painting very soon. Then new carpet and Zoë can have her new bed delivered. Then a few shelves to put up and all will be done and at the grand old age of 3, Zoë will be in a big girl’s bed. Shame we have to work the next couple of days – but we will be glad of the chance of a rest at work.
