We had a minor set back with the floor screed when my 3 year old decided to go into the utility room and dig some of it up. The builder was not amused, but he filled the small hole that had been dug up and my son hid from the builder for the rest of the day!
From the outside it looks fab and we are really pleased. We are now looking forward to getting the inside done and plastered so we can get children into their new bedrooms and reclaiming my dining room that is currently being used as a teenagers bedroom, yuk!
I am ready and waiting to turn into a Laurence Llewellyn Bowen type interior designer and paint, accessorize and drag my house back into life after the upheaval of all the work, at the moment it looks like a bomb hit!!
With our son's GCSE's finally done and out of the way we don't have to stress about getting our son out of bed on time, well fed and concentrating on his exams our next mission is to find a suit for the impending prom in 2 weeks time. Shopping with men is a nightmare, shopping with a teenage man is even worse. Fingers crossed we find a suit in the first shop and I can come home and rock in a corner to recover. Dragging a baby and toddler along probably doesn't help! I may have to stock up on chocolate to help with the recovery process.
So our next big occasion is our daughters 7th birthday next week. It has gone from no party this year to having 7 friends round for tea, whilst the plasterer is here trying to work and the house looking like a bomb has hit. I may make painting and decorating into a new party game, it could work, right??!! I am thinking the delivery of sweets that just arrived from American Sweets Online will either keep them quiet or send them into hyper overdrive!
