Pollocks in the bathroom.

Daddy Walker's Adventures in DIY
Can you believe this bathroom STILL isn't finished yet???

Next month it will have been a YEAR since Hubby started work on it. He is now on with the tiling though. This is a slow job he tells me. Although, since last month he has managed to tile one wall from the bath tub almost to the ceiling (it's a funny shape where the walls meets the ceiling so that's being held off for now), half way up the wall on the long side of the tub, and almost up to the window at the foot of the tub.

He has spent the last two days cutting tiles to size. There has been much swearing. I've tried to keep out of the way, as have the kids, but it's only a small house and sound travels. On Sunday Tom informed me that little Georgie had said "bollocks". I can think of only one place my 22m old heard that word! Tom then proceeded to chant "pollocks pollocks pollocks" (he likes to play games where he changes the first sound in a word) and when Jack asked what he was saying I quickly explained that a Pollock was a fish and changed the subject!

A Pollock, not a naughty word daddy shouldn't have said!

The toilet leaks now, have I mentioned that before or not? I forget now where I've got to on these updates. It only leaks when someone sits on it. Anyone. Even our 3yo who weighs very little compared to his parents. There is one of my (former) mixing bowls permanently placed under the pipes behind the loo. It's Hubby's job to check and empty it daily.

The sink still wobbles too. And he still hasn't got round to fixing down those floorboards he put in last month. Maybe I should mention that? Again? Maybe not today. Not while he's handling the tile cutter. It looks both sharp and heavy...!



Facebook has changed it’s policy for posts to Facebook pages like mine. They are only showing posts to a few likers unless I pay to boost the views.

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know
