Day 85 - Tuesday 12th September 2017

I set off really early this morning to get Jack to school for 7:30am as he was going on his plas menai school trip for a couple of nights.... he's back on Thursday! He wasn't allowed to take his phone with him so no contact for 3 days 😢😢 I then went round to the house to meet a painter that I had arranged myself.... the builders painter has never turned up so I've sacked him off and found my own..... he's cracking on with Jack's room today 😁 The bathroom suite turned up at about 9:30am but surprise surprise, no plumber!! I called him and he said he was on his way, but he didn't show up all day.... unbelievable!! I worked until late at the house on various bits.... I've not really been writing on here exactly what I am doing at home through fear of Lisa or Jack reading my diary, but being as they haven't looked at it, I will spill the beans.... 8 weeks ago, it was suppose to be a simple paint job and some cleaning up of the gardens, but having been promised by the builder we had enough time, it turned in to a full refurb!! The plan was..... Brand new Kitchen (inc new floor/wall tiles, re-wire, 32" wall mounted smart TV, new lights, and plastered). Yet to be finished! Brand new 'whirlpool bath' bathroom suite with double sink unit. Needs new floor, wall tiles, new lights and plastered before it can be fitted! Living room has a new baby proof settee and 55" smart curved 4K TV. Needs a new carpet fitting and painting. Dining room needs new carpet and painting. Our bedroom has a new bed (with hidden electric 32" smart TV in bottom), side cupboards and dressing table. Needs painting before I can build them! Theo's Nursery has a new cot bed, wardrobe, side unit and nursing rocking chair. Needs a new carpet fitting and painting before I can build them! Jack's room has been upgraded into 4 sections (King size bed, cinema room with 90" screen, settee and 42" TV/gaming station, music room with drums, guitars and keyboard; and a study room with desk and beanbag reading corner).... Almost done, just needs painting and wall stickers 😁 New carpet on stairs and landing Painted everywhere else (inside and outside) Decking area outside, with BBQ area It's going to look really good when its done!! I just hope I've got enough time left because the builders have let me down massively with false promises over the last 8 weeks!! Lisa and Jack have no idea that I am doing it and it's a real battle trying to hide it from them.... but I think there will be a few tears when they both come home and see it. It will be a fresh start for us all after the trauma we have been through the last few months!! I came back to the hospital at about 8pm and stayed with Lisa and Theo until about 1am. It looks like I was right and he has got a cold! We've just got to wait for the results of his mucus test coming back in 2 - 3 days!! I hope it doesnt get to bad and he's ok ❤ I measured him against my hand again and he looks massive in comparison now 😁😁

I am super tired today..... I think I'm running on pure adrenaline at the minute.... I'll be glad when we are all home and settled in our new home sweet home ❤❤ Thanks for reading, please share this blog with everyone you know to extend it's reach....
