He's at that bloomin bathroom again!

This months progress has been.... well, it LOOKS like he's not done very much, but he has. Honest!

Those pipes in the picture? They're for the new shower. He's run pipes the length of the bath and up through the new wall, and there they are, WORKING and NOT LEAKING! That took him a fair while to do as he had about 6 inches of working space.

And the wall. Why am I showing you the wall?

It's because you can't see though it any more! You can now pee in peace in this house without kids hanging about on the stairs, peeping though the huge gap in the wall chanting "I can seeeeee yoooooooou!"

And there is board going up around the new window too, almost all the way round now.

I'm not kidding myself that this means we're any where near tiling yet. There's still more board to go up and we've run out, so that means I trip to Wickes on my own one day and getting one of the lovely staff there to help me out to the car with those huge sheets of Auqapanel (since he can't drive, and us both going means the kids go too, and then there's not room for the board!) Even when the board is up he still needs to plaster the other walls and what ever else before tiles can go up.

Still. Progress is progress..............

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…
