Oops. And a new room!

Oops. I am incapable of counting apparently.
When I posted the giveaway last week, I wrote that you had until Tuesday, Aug. 3 to enter. And then in my head, I thought that was yesterday. And so on Twitter I told everyone that it was yesterday. And then I realized that I was so confused it would be easier to travel back in time to fix this.
So! I will keep the giveaway's dates as stated, and you can continue to enter until midnight on Tuesday. Please enter in the original post if you haven't yet. Still only one entry per person!

Anyway, since I don't want to only bring bad news (or good news - another week to enter?) - here's something I promised you months ago.

If you remember, a few months ago I had quite an eventful week when a tree crashed through my bedroom. Good times. After being homeless for a week, I moved into the basement until the construction, painting, carpeting, etc. could be finished.

And now, a trip in photos:

March 15, 2010:

Two days post tree. My room was a mess, and I was a mess. It took another two days to remove the trunk from the house.
April 27, 2010:

After many delays, construction finally began 6 weeks post-treepocalypse.
First order of business: repair giant hole.
Mid-May 2010:

Construction just about finished. Missing: window, light fittings, radiator, floor.
Minor details.
June 2, 2010:
Painting finished, carpet installed. I was out of the country. Coincidence?

Furniture returned, curtains hung, mess accumulated, neverending pile of books.

The end.

Well, moral of the story: you can still enter the giveaway! And don't worry, I'll be back with next time. Right, food. This isn't a home decorating blog. Yet.
