We eventually sorted out the radiator courtesy of a dashing young plumber who had definitely had a public school education and then turned his back on becoming a solicitor to break the hearts of the fee payers and became a plumber instead. I seriously considered locking up my daughters in the face of such dashing good looks and charm (to protect him, them or my own chances? 😉 )
So now we have no radiator but we do have heat. Thank goodness for that 🙂 it hailed here today inbetween bright sunshine and heavy rain, prompting conversation about the “April Showers” thing we always say. Children clearly thouht this was madness; judging by their astonishment when their bike race was “rain stopped play” today, they don’t see nearly enough rain.
Can’t think what has gone on today; a certain amount of playing and garden stuff, Maddy did some fantastic drawings for the last 2 weeks worth of Illustration Friday. I love that she always produced several pictures using all the interpretations of the word she can think of. I must start submitting them for her.
I’ve spent the day pruning their toys and packing up the room, we are likely to exchange tomorrow on the new house and it is all getting quite imminent feeling. My blooming chest is playing up again and i’m going to have to go to the docs i think as i just STILL seem to be coughing up gunge and i’m bored of it now. I’m paranoid they’ll be a flu epidemic and i’ll already be ill enough to just keel over instantly. Argh. How long can one bug last?
Must do something educational this week, really must.
