Music room takes shape…

God, this has been the longest day!

Jac was really unsettled last night and Claire was up with him from about 3 a.m till 4 and then I took over from 4 till 6:30, then we were all up! Trouble was, I couldn’t sleep till 1:30 in the morning, meaning I only got 2.5 hours sleep! GRRRRRRRR! Not good. I’ve spent most of the day in a semi-trance dream state, feeling very weird.

After Jamie and I got back from checking out the Tennis Tots thing at our local tennis centre, Claire had the inspired idea to get on with the ‘music room’ (ex-downstairs bathroom). I was really starting to flag at that point but this spurred us all into action.

Part of the idea for the room is to use the old living room and bedroom carpets as wall coverings, to absorb the sound and help to insulate. So far we’ve put up carpets on two of the blue-tiled walls and laid the floor carpet to cover the horrible and cold floor tiles. Some serious cleaning is needed though as they’ve been rolled up in the shed for a year or so + weren’t in the best condition to start with!

more soon…
