Aaaaaarrrrgggghhhhh!!!!

Hurricane Harry has struck again!!!

All was going well this morning until approximately 8am, when Harry decided that it would be a really good idea to drop a can of paint, causing the lid to pop off, resulting not only in him being covered in paint but also the cream landing carpet!!! As if it wasn't bad enough to have a puddle of paint on the carpet, Harry decided that it would be a good idea to have a crawl around... just to add to the artistic effect!!!
So this morning didn't go according to plan. Rob stayed at home, to get Oliver ready for school whilst I peeled Harry out of his sodden pjs. I had to shower him down but as we have no radiator in the bathroom yet he was shivering so I didn't get all of the paint off. An emergency call to Rob's work, and half an hour later a couple of his colleagues turned up to get the van and brought us an industrial carpet cleaner to try and save the carpet. 6 refills later and we now have a really clean landing carpet, with really obvious blue stains!!! Another thing to add on to the shopping list which seems to be growing daily!!!

Does it look as bad from this angle?

What about from this angle?

The paint is in that shape as there was loads of stuff piled up on the landing, which I moved to clean the carpet... just imagine the mess he could have made had he have had the whole landing to crawl about on :o

Not had any opportunity to play along with HS:MS today, but hope to back playing tomorrow.

You just gotta love kids. Josh spilled a whole 5 litre can of magnolia down my blue stair carpet when he was about two. Accidents happen hun. I am glad he is okay and that you did not throttle the little lambkin. :)

OMG - how could someone so cute and innocent looking do this - are you sure it was Harry - I'd blame the dog - the dog always gets the blame in our house!
