The regeneration had a busy weekend so I’m doing the two days in one post. It should really be 3, but who’s counting? The upstairs radiators and shower screen went in along with some more painting and work on the bannister/hand rail. The carpet has been ordered, at last, it is on the neutral theme after all, there’ll be a strict shoes off upstairs rule coming in I’m sure (we’ll all forget after a couple of weeks, knowing us). The shower screen has been decided on, I think, just a case of finding the best price we can for it now, needless to say it’s way more than we expected to pay but when you are fussy that’s what always happens.
Here’s a wee visual roundup of what’s going on here at the moment.
F has an enterprise task on at school at the moment and he is keen to make and sell tablet to make money. I looked out Mum’s recipe book and we made a batch.
I was so sure we would undercook it that it was a little overdone but my expert guest tester on Sunday said it was fine, she even gave F his first sale! My sister said, “yes, it looks just like Mum’s” followed by a funny look on her face. I guess that means Mum often overdid it too – she’s probably who instilled the thought in my head in the first place. Anyway, it tasted pretty good, it had the right grainy texture, it was just a bit too hard. F seemed pleased when he took a large lump of the seriously sugary stuff off to his business partner’s house yesterday. He’s off to P7 camp this week, it will be quiet here without him
His big brother has taken to watch the Simpsons in the little round and round chair. Have to say it doesn’t look that comfortable but he likes it.
