Mum’s the word

I was lucky enough to get 2 days off work this week (Thursday & Friday) to get some more done on the house. My mum (Angela) came to see the house for the first time and to lend a hand. It was so nice to see her and even better to put her to work! I remember when I was young and my mum would make me and my sister (Amy) strip wallpaper and tidy up when our houses were being decorated. Revenge is sweet!

Mum's phone after about 10 minutes of sanding the walls (pardon my nails). It got so dusty in there that we kept setting the fire alarm off. Oops!

Taking a break from the dustcloud upstairs, we head to the lounge to find....the cat! Making herself at home 🙂

Mum again. "I knew I shouldn't have worn my good jeans" haha she's a numpty

Joe joins us after work 🙂

Time for a break in the garden. Sunshine!

My mum unfortunately had to leave the previous night as she doesn’t live locally anymore (insert sad face here). So Friday it was just me. I spent a lot of time singing wildly to cheesy music, and dancing on a ladder, which I now know is dangerous. Who knew?

Safety first!

Turns out I wasn't alone after all! Hello Lily

I sit down for a 5 minute breather...there she is again! Straight onto my lap. D'awww

Stripping the ceiling in the back bedroom, I thought she had left. But no, she's just exploring the garden.
