I spent a good 30 minutes in the card shop today. June is full of family birthdays plus there's Fathers Day as well and there were 12 cards I needed to choose. Tom's cards had to be chosen extra carefully as some of the words were inappropriate considering the circumstances, but I got there eventually. I also bought some modelling clay from The Works for an Egyptian project Thomas has to do for school. I really wanted terracotta but they only had white so we'll have to get the paint out as well.
The daily jigsaw update is that I now have a faceless lady pushing part of a pram and some boys feeding the ducks. According to mum the red bus looks more like a charabanc although she said I would be too young to know what one of those was.
There's been another man up a ladder at Number 38. We're taking the bull by the horns and have decided to install a new bathroom while Amy is away on holiday in July. Part of the new look will be a smaller window so that we have more wall space. We're also having new windows fitted in Amy and Thomas' rooms. When we split the bedroom for them we were lucky in that they both got a window each but only Amy's side could be opened. Now they'll both get to have some fresh air. Today was the 'let's see what needs doing' part.
Amy is out with friends this evening, so I made the most of her absence and 'booked the bathroom'. I've started working my way through the basket of smellies she bought for my birthday and for my first pamper session I chose a bath bomb, candle and body spray.
It was all very relaxing.... I'll have to encourage her to go out more often.
