Stu has now taken out all the kitchen ready for the plasterer to come tomorrow at 8am. I have had the back door open as its been so warm and I am pretending I am camping and it is an adventure, rather than allowing myself to get stressed at the lack of sink/cupboards/being able to find anything. We have moved the fridge out of the under stairs cupboard for now and that is being used for storage so its not too bad. Stu did just break the news to me that the plumber will have to disconnect the washing machine and dishwasher tomorrow to plaster the back wall so it looks like I will have to take the camping experience one step further and have to wash up outside in a bowl! Still, it will be so worth it and I have plenty of other things to think about to take my mind off the lack of kitchen!
I am using the picnic table at the minute to give me some extra worktop space
Thankfully the bathroom is next to the kitchen so not too far to go when we need some water
Noel and April went to school today wearing Red, White and Blue and they had a picnic on the school field to celebrate the jubilee. They are having a "street party" on Friday too. There were children today draped in flags and wearing really elaborate costumes, but we were a bit boring and just went for things that we already had in the cupboard. Even Mini got in on the act, and wanted to be included in the photo I took..
Not sure if you can tell but she is screwing up her face, saying "cheese!"
Its so lovely having some sunshine isn't it! It makes a really welcome change after all the rain we have had and its helped me get all those little baby clothes dry that I have been washing. I can't believe I am nearly 25 weeks already. I have bought some storage boxes to keep the babies clothes in but at the moment they are being utilised for the kitchen contents so that is another job for when the kitchen is done. I have plenty of white and a few little bits of pink and blue in there so I will keep the neighbours guessing as to what we are having when they see them blowing on the line! We don't know ourselves what we are expecting but we are agreed on two sets of boys names now (at last) so thats one less thing to worry about. We still have one set of girls names to decide on, but thankfully we have a more weeks to make up our minds and of course, we might not need two sets of girls names anyway ....
