We've spent a lot of the week painting, and today we moved his bed, desk, and some storage furniture across. Since he is a big fan of all things Doctor Who related, he's chosen a bit of a tardis-blue theme, he has new bedding to match, and a special poster. He's also been decorating tiles to use on the fireplace (we'll put them up when he's finished), and adapted a cheap Ikea clock.

We're almost there - just a few more pictures to go up and we're done. I don't like disorder, so I will be glad when everything is away again!
There was a slight hiccup this evening when my son shut the door when I was in there with him, and we couldn't open it again. It took my husband quite a bit of effort, and eventual hacking at the door, in order to free us! Once we were liberated, he took the lock apart and fixed the catch - so hopefully this won't happen again.
Other than that, we've had a fairly steady week. We've met with friends, been for walks, and continued with our usual work. We also rediscovered a rope swing in some of our local woods, which was great fun.

I tested it first - and the children offered to look after my phone, so there is photographic evidence!

I'm enjoying the mornings getting a very little lighter too. The gloominess gets me down a bit, but the sun is now up by the time I get back from a run - and that makes it a much cheerier start to the day.
