I don't actually have a kitchen anymore! Yes Jon has ripped the kitchen out and is in the process of fitting a new one which is great fun as it means rather than a nice leisurely week-end relaxing and recuperating while he looks after the children I have to keep them out of the house all day. Lets just say it wasn't my idea for him to do it single handedly. Apparently it will be ready by Wednesday (minus tiling). I put my foot down and insisted we get someone in to do the tiling. What do we think? Ready by Wednesday?? No chance!
To top it off my car has had it. We've had ongoing problems with the battery. I think I know what the problem is and have explained it to 2 garages who have basically just ignored me (because I am female???). It was very funny yesterday as it passed its MOT so I went to collect it and realised they hadn't actually fixed the ongoing problem despite them insisting that it was all sorted. When I went to drive it away the battery had gone flat again so they were REALLY embarrassed. It turns out there is a massive problem with the electrics (yes hello garage I told you that!) and it will have to go to the nissan garage to get sorted. (The same garage who last year disconnected the radio telling me that would sort the problem - Arggggh!!)
Anyway I've generally been a bit rubbish this month. I've missed the deadline for the sewalong. Didn't even get to the measuring myself stage. Sorry Kitchy Coo! I failed to make the baby shoes for my February 2010 challenge and have not blogged about various awards or meme's passed on to me. I'm really sorry everyone. Its down to a combination of ill health, interview preparation, childcare stress and general day to day life. Will try to do better!
Also thanks to my lovely friend Debi who has been emailing me photos of Phillip Schofield and Christopher Dean (yes of Torvil & Dean fame - strange I know!) to try and cheer me up. It did make me smile!
