Sharing a couple of photos, we have some double doors leading off the dining room, into the sitting room and the room we have started calling 'the den', I hated the wavy 1970's glass, so we have had them changed to clear glass, what a transformation, it opens up the entire house.....still a work in progress, with horrible door handles and unpainted, and furniture all over the place, but getting there, inch by inch..I'll take a photo when it's done
So we have found a plumber, lovely chap. We needed to check out some supplies he was telling us about 'go to my suppliers showroom' he said 'in Island Road. We have lived here for a few years, never heard to Island Road, so when we were ready to set off I googled it. No Island Road in our town. Light bulb moment, perhaps he meant Ireland Road? Googled again. No results. So I called him. Where did you say that bathroom supply showroom was? 'Island Road' he replied. Can you spell it for me?
A flying visit to London this weekend to babysit Max and Milo (although they don't like the term babysit these days). A couple of random conversations with six year old Milo
Did you used to have a mummy Ma?
Yes, of course
Where is she now?
She died before you were born
Are you wearing her jacket?
What? (startled) Why?
When people die you get all their stuff, and I thought you may have got that jacket
and a bit later.....
You're not very good at Lego are you Ma?
Not very, no
That's because you are old, and old people are not good at a lot of things (he said this in a kindly voice, giving me a reassuring pat on the knee)
What sort of things? (I asked, all ready to take umbrage on behalf of 'old' people everywhere)
Well you aren't any good at Lego or climbing trees
He rests his case!
Game, set and match to Milo I think
See you tomorrow x
