Life continues to race along on it's up and down roller coaster and if I'm honest, this week I'm not much enjoying the ride. Some weeks seem to have dragged on for decades whilst others have whilstled past so fast I realise I have not visited you in a while.
Taking one day at a time is all well and good, and it's a great way to get by, but I feel well overdue for looking forward now, if I could only work out where 'forward' is.
I have baked the final single-number cake for my beautiful little boy. Next year I shall have to bake two cakes. The beautiful boy is delighted at this prospect!
Much fun was had with friends - for the first time this year due to Life in Limbo, we opted for an organised party venue and my oh my why didn't I ever do this before?! So much easier and so much less to clear up afterwards! The beautiful boy was delighted to spend a couple of hours doing death defying circuits looking all grown up....
....not completely all grown up yet I'm glad to say!
And finally last week it was time to ditch the crocs and tatty t-shirts and return to scritchy new blazer and tie and the tyranny of the school run, at least for my half of the time. Autumn is really here.
I have been shopping 'til I drop at Screwfix, Jewsons and other such builders' merchants haggling prices down and trying to understand how many possible ways there are to fix a tap to a pipe!

|The new workroom (try not to notice what happened to the linoleum floor!)|
So you are getting a feel for the grumpy in the kitschen today folks. Here's our little antidote to take the edge off of the building site that we call home!
PS: The old kitschen will be featured in Good Homes' November issue out soon. That will be a bit weird. And for those of you across the Atlantic watch out for a feature in an issue of Romantic Homes early in 2011!
