Anthony knows that, when I start a sentence with “Please don’t think I’m crazy,…“, I probably have some sort of (crazy) plan.
“Please don’t think I’m crazy,..but do we have a cable long enough for me to iron the playroom carpet?”
“Please don’t think I’m crazy,..but when you go to the shop, can you please buy 52 oranges? ”
On Saturday it went something like this.
“Please don’t think I’m crazy,..but I’d like to dye the playroom net-curtains rainbow coloured!”
To my surprise AJ actually just said “That sounds lovely!”, and so, when the little ones were tucked safely into bed that night, I dyed the playroom curtains.
I figured the worst that could happen would be that we may end up with an enormous rainbow curtain for our playstands, and a fun story to tell when the little ones are older.
(“Do you remember that time Mama went a bit crazy and dyed the curtains rainbow coloured?”)
Luckily, we love it, and so do the little ones. It makes the entire playroom feel so, so cosy and warm, and it really makes it a much more cheerful space, too.
I already have lots of plans for more dyed curtains, and how fun would it be to change the colours around for each season? Autumn will definitely be orange and red, though we have picked a more gentle collection of colours for the children’s bedrooms.
