This is the 25th post in the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge which means we are very near the end, just one more post after this one!

Today’s post is the letter Y and I’m going to share with you what I did yesterday!

Yesterday I awoke at just gone 9am which is pretty early for me on a weekend.  The sun was shining and my room was really bright, it sounded pretty calm outside which was nice as the day before I had awoken to the sound of heavy rain and high winds.

I hadn’t planned on doing much, the weather for the weekend had been fairly inclement with forecasts of rain in between sunny spells so I didn’t really fancy venturing too far from home.

I decided that, after purchasing paint earlier in the week that the day would be perfect for me to start decorating my bedroom.

I got up and got dressed before having a cup of coffee and checking out the blogs I follow.

I decided that I would try out my new laptop, a Geo Flex which is a laptop that can convert to a tablet instead of using my trusty Dell laptop.

After breakfast of toast and marmite I made a start on setting up for decorating.  I tidied up my clothes and put my washing away and then wiped down the skirting boards, hoovered the floor, moved the bed and dusted down the walls before making a start on the cutting in.

The colour I had chosen for my room was from B&Q and is called Shizuoka, I shizuoka you not!  It is a lovely deep purple, almost aubergine purple colour, the pictures on the website do not do the colour justice.

By 2pm I had got the first coat of paint on the main wall.  While it was drying I thought that it would be a good time to have some lunch.  I had beans on toast, a coffee and caught up on some blog reading!

After I had finished eating I went back upstairs and put the second coat on the wall then made a start on the second wall before washing my makeup brushes while the paint was drying.  I also put a wash load of clothes in the washing machine.

Once the both walls were painted I decided to paint the third wall before having a bath.

By the time I’d had my bath it was nearly 8pm and I was hungry and feeling a bit tired.  I put my food into the oven to cook and did the washing up while waiting, I didn’t fancy anything much but made myself fish and chips.  I then sat with Roxy and watched some of Gossip Girl on Netflix before heading up to move my bed back into place, put the rest of the furniture tidy and get into bed for a well-deserved rest!
