Yesterday we had an action plan that flew out the window.
Guess who the sprawled out cat is?
When we finally got up, there was banking and laundry and breakfast to make.
So it set off the alarm system.
And we didn’t know the code to turn it off….
And either did the company that makes this alarm system…
And either did the woman whose mother owned Abe before us….
And either did the neighbours.
This alarm is loud – it could be heard up and down the whole street.
But luckily one of the neighbours who could hear the alarm let us know how to turn it off.
That was enough excitement for us.
We left the house and went to Will’s Mums kitchen company Burlanes to talk tiles, radiators and shower pumps.
We’re costing things up but still can’t decide what to do with the radiators.
To buy a couple of old school ones or not?
I think we all know my opinion.
The cost difference is outrageous.
We are also stuck trying to find what type of tiles we want in the bathroom.
Or something more geometric like these
Or these tiles
Btw, my chopping-wood outfit is very similar to this models. See
So on trend.
Despite going to three tile stores we couldn’t find the perfect tile. So we gave up for the night.
And we won a 2 foot high victorian light for our backyard from ebay! Yay! we are winners!
I’m going to use it to make our back yard look like this
We went to our local pub/bistro.
The food, atmosphere and people were great! But after all the excitement we over ordered on the wine and needed to bring a bottle home. Perfectly normal?
Only we couldn’t put a cork in it!
Eventually they gave Will a napkin to stuff in the bottle for the short term and asked if we were just bringing it to the car?
Car- Uh what?! We’ve just had a bottle and a half plus some whiskys?! Is that what people outside of London do?
We walked two blocks home and realised we still haven’t decided about those radiators or tiles. For another day…..
Ps. Happy Birthday Pappa Bear!!!!
