Day Eight

Lots of activity today once the crew could actually get in, the contractor had to phone to check I was in because someone had disconnected the bell.  Our bell is the loudest in Edinburgh, as some of you know, so I am not tuned in to gentle knocking on the front door especially when I’m going through the teeth, bag, gym kit routine.  They got in and got on.

We no longer have a bathroom. Today the bathroom has gone from this….

This bathroom cabinet is the best ever, you can see the back of your hair and it has the most flattering light.  It’s great for doing your face in too.  It should be going in the skip since it is beginning to fall to bits but I am very tempted to keep it.  I know what my husband will say.

H’s room is clear now,  it was the perfect little room for a preschooler.  She’s a big schoolgirl now. Time to move on, I’ll miss how cosy it is.

This is the newly shared room, I guess I won’t see it as neat as this again.  I wonder how long they will last sharing in harmony. Is that really cynical?  They actually get on pretty well most of the time.  Fingers crossed that they love sharing.

Other Stuff

So, after another day emptying, moving and sorting what better way to unwind than having  nearly banoffee pancakes for pudding?   We have run out of jam, honey, maple syrup and nutella so this is what we had on our pancakes tonight.  It is a View from the Table kind of ingredient – I wonder if Sarah has ever used it on pancakes.  It is delicious, we sliced banana on top then rolled them up.  Sadly, the banoffee pancakes were eaten before the camera came out so here is the jar instead.  Yum

Any other pancake topping ideas greatly received ready for pancake day next Tuesday.

JB is doing well. Thanks for the comments.
