Hi Coops

A boy making a mess of his bedroom? How unusual LOL!!!

It gets worse as they get older so be warned.

In the end I used to just throw clean sheets on top of the bed and say let me have your dirty ones .. .. and that was as much as I did!!

Boy did that room take some clearing when he left home!!! LOL!!!

Your holiday went a bit quick!!!!

Love Jules xx
