Easter Holidays

So we have been busy these holidays. We've been to the cinema twice - once at Gunwharf and once at Port Solent. We've been to Staunton Farm and the twins fed the animals while Lucy did a treasure hunt. We've been to Pirate Pete's. We've had picnics in the playpark. We've been to Canoe lake and the seafront. We've been to 100 Acre Woods. Tomorrow we are going bowling - the twins haven't been before so this shall be fun.

Meanwhile, the staircase up to the loft is in, as are the velux windows and a lot of plumbing and electricity. The bathroom was delivered today and is sitting in the garage. The old cooker, therefore, is sitting in the skip to make way for the bathroom suite. We still have no slates on though - though you can't tell from the inside anymore as they've put up insulation under the membrane - maybe it'll be warmer tonight. Eddie has stripped off the wallpaper, dido rails and picture rails in the hallway (whilst I have been thinking of things to get the children out of the house) - ready for the plasterer (who we are expecting next week).

It will be good when the children are back at school next week and out of the way from all the mess in the house.
