Noah is really starting to chat away. He can say lots of words and some phrases. He can say hiya, mummy, daddy, noah, mini, bye, baby, yeah, no, ta, uh oh, amy, narna (banana). He can also say all done when he’s finished eating, row row and up stairs!!!!!!! We have no idea why he has chosen up stairs to be one of his first phrases but he’s definately saying that as he points up there when he says it.
I’m sure he can say a lot more than Caitlin at this age….. He also says No with a really strong Rochdale accent!!!
Today we were supposed to be having a nice leisurely trip to the Blue Planet aquarium but Richard needed the car so we had to stay in! Then the man fitting our windows phoned to say he couldn’t come tomorrow could he come today? As we were carless and hence planless I said they could. So now we have 3 new windows a day ahead of schedule. I have also finished painting the front lounge so now we just need to clear it and we will be 4 rooms down, 2 rooms, 1 hall, stairs and landing and the minor task of a bathroom to go until we can go on the market!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It is completely chaotic here because we have emptied the bathroom all over the landing, the new bathroom is all over our bedroom and everything in the living room is moved towards the middle in an attempt to make a start on that!!!
Messy doesn’t even begin to describe it……..
I really really am!!!!!!!!!! The house we really like has been reduced which makes it a lot more affordable. Well when I say we I really mean me since Richard hasn’t seen it yet! He was banned in order to make the vendors think we weren’t that interested so they’d reduce it…it appears to have worked!!! I am sooo sooo excited I think I am going to pop!! Now we just need to get ours on the market which seems like a major task at the moment!!
So thats it really…….
Yesterday we planted out the bedding plants that Nan bought for us. Caitlin and Noah helped of course….. By putting some compost in and patting it around the new plants…..
Then when the planting was done Caitlin helped to brish the spilt compost back into the border. No idea who put it all there…but Noah was covered in it near to the end!!!!!!
Then Noah had a drive of the car…
Before he decided the empty plant pot made a good hat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nan missed Noah’s birthday this year as Peter had just died. So this morning we opened Noah’s birthday presents! Nan had bought Noah a Thomas the Tank train set…..
Caitlin of course had to help open it…….
Then we set it up, and as you can see from the massive grin on Noah’s face it was a big success…
Then Nan did some reading with Caitlin before it was time for her to go home!
Yesterday Richard and his Mum took Caitlin and Noah plant shopping, there will be some photos of the plants as soon as they are planted! Richard was supposed to be taking pics yesterday while I was at work but he forgot!!!!!!!!!! We also went out for a drink which was good.
Caitlin has just been to wave Nan off at the train station….. Bye Nan hope you enjoyed your visit, I know we’ve all enjoyed seeing you!! See you in a few weeks when we come down to yours.
Nan has been visiting for a few days. Caitlin and Noah have had lots of fun playing in the garden with her and reading books and sticking stickers!
Nan has also done loads of painting in the hallway which is great!! It makes it looks lots bigger and is definately an improvement. Yet again I’m not keen on the nuetral colours, which is good really because when its all complete I’m going to be very happy to move out and paint my new house in wild colours again!!!!
Last night we went to cloud 23 for a quick cocktail with Richards Mum. The weather was brilliant so we could see for miles and we had a nice window seat.
We then had a quick wander around the bar to see the other views then went for a tapas afterwards, which was also very nice. Then we had time for a quick drink before our train home…
Yesterday Richard and his Mum also worked on our garden and covered a rubbish border that just dies out with york stone which looks much better.
