As a teenager I knew everything....I'm still trying to figure out when I forgot it all.

One week later........

How I love this room and its glow in the dark stars and glow in the dark border and the space ships and Dr Who and the lava lamp and my "artists impression of the earth from space" (yes I know it's not geographically correct but he's only 7 he doesn't care)!

We were mean and evil.

When he returned from his dads he came straight in to us and declared how much he'd missed us cuddled and loved us and after a brief reciprocation. We started nagging him to take his stuff to his room as I was trying to tidy up....

....we crept upstairs behind him and waited at the top of the stairs he opened the bedroom door and stopped dead, turned fled into our arms and burst into tears...

"Thank you, thank you thank you sooooo much, I love it!"

BUT thats not the end we set up another surprise in the garden. Draped with "Welcome Home" banners was a 8ft Trampoline and enclosure he knew nothing about, we just sat and waited while he explored his new room until he looked out of the window....I have more photos of that for tomorrow!

And Lindz I wished to god it was an annoying singing bot from McD's - That my dear is a full size Iz. About 4x bigger, 3x louder and infinitely more annoying than those from McDs!!!

I'm not usually mushy, but Aaaaaar!!

Great job both of you. This is really impressive. We might need you both for a little decorating when we get there.

Essitam says:

Mr and Mrs Baron - We (not that James knows yet but he'll do as he's told *wink*) will be more than pleased to help with the decorating as and when it's needed, it'll be good to have you over here!!

I am of the same opinion as Steve, and would very much like you as my dad. I have a good enough mum, but i haven't had a daddy for 25 years and i wants a new one, and with design and decorating skills like yours, i can't go wrong now can i
