It was a good day too, the children were fun to be with most of the time and it's a shame it all ended with the most demoralising, depressing, self esteem and confidence crushing staff meeting I think I have ever been to - so I am saying no more about it!
There's been more progress with the bedroom. All the old paper has gone, the artex has gone and it's shiny new all over with fresh plaster on walls and ceiling. It now has to dry, of course, and the house feels slightly damp as it does so, but never mind. Next will be the painting and then they can get going with the rest of the job - building the units and laying the flooring.
So this Saturday I am on a hunt for lights and rugs and a curtain rail (must remember to measure up!).
