Eureka! The messmonsters' bedside tables are recycling history!
It always seemed a shame to send all those gorgeous French wine boxes to the cinders but I was at bit of a loss as to how to use them otherwise.
Hurray for messmonsters then! No matter how much I tidied their room, there was always a pile of books on the floor next to the bed (not necessarily an indication that they were reading them but hey, there's always hope!)
Typical weekly scenario:
Me (with vaccy cleaner in hand) - Kids, would you please tidy your books into the book case?
Messmonsters - Sure Mum! Grumble grumble, but I'm playing.
Me - If the books aren't picked up in 5 mts I will vacuum them up! (hoping that the 5 year old wouldn't tilt)
Messmonsters - Get real The books won't fit up the vacuum cleaner Mum!
Me - (Not silly are they? Must be mine ;-)
After a quick visit to Bubble in Paris and a subsequent tour of Ethan's room - I spied a fabulous invention that would put paid to my nagging, tidy the books, and make vacuuming easier: THE BOOK BOX.
What do you think?
Lilibelle got pink but I just couldn't resisit a splash of orange in Pokémon's one!
