A much younger Mrs W!!!!

Here you go, as promiced, my fathers day present for Papa Wonka! (No laughing allowed!) He loved it and it now has pride of place where he can se it all the time LOL. That's all from me today, things are a little stressful in the Wonka household! Mr Wonka has the week off to decorate ARGHHHHHHHHH!! Last time he was on solo decorating duty , removing fitted wardrobes, re decorating and fitting new wardrobes it went something like this......... Day One : Wardrobes knocked out with a sledge hammer, forgetting the were attached to the ceiling, half the ceiling came down and we had a skylight to the loft! Day Two: He decided the easiest way for him to get the wardrobe rubbish (and half the ceiling) out into the back garden was to throw it out the back bedroom window......forgetting about the conservatory and garden furniture!!! Yup you guessed it, roof cracked and patio furniture smashed! Day Three: Windows varnished, varnished beautifully, but shut too soon and stuck together so a broken window pain whilst trying to get the window back open! In the end and a few hundred pounds more than expected he did finally make a beautiful job of the bedroom, I'm hoping things will go a little smoother this time, I am scared to come home from work! LOL I'll keep you posted.................
