Back online for a sec

I needed to check the opening hours of the library, so that I could print out the credit card statement that hasn’t come yet, so we can take P’s new boots back to the shop because they have both developed holes in the soles, after less than 3 weeks!

Anyway, the house work is going splendidly. Our new kitchen is lovely – before, after and during pics to follow.

Yesterday we had builders, a plumber, an electrician, two plasterers and a tiler all working in the house at the same time. We went out.

Off the top of my head, some of the things we’ve been doing lately are:

  • Going to work
  • Extra sessions at Kids Club, because there’s an end of term panto being rehearsed
  • A workshop at Kids Club with the brilliant Richard Robinson of Brighton Science Festival – they made propellers out of straws and towers of spaghetti and marshmallows
  • A visit to Allie’s dad and his wife – lovely as always
  • Shopping for house things
  • Putting things in boxes and taking things out of boxes
  • Giving away stuff on Freecycle, and by putting it outside the door – very satisfying, but we still seem to have an enormous amount of stuff

Normal service will be resumed in about a week.

Glad the work is going well, can't wait for pictures as I always enjoy seeing how renovations are going.
