My brain is all a mash...

I've got the double glazing starting on Tuesday at Sam's house, also the plumber should be there tomorrow to rip out the bathroom and get it plastered ready for a new suite... I've got the kitchen designed just need to see if we can afford a builder to fit it, or will be have to do it ourselves...

Have also been trying to plan Stevens student pad, I've now got he's bedding, paint and a new unit, but have to work out how to decorate he's bedroom without him going into one, cos it's changing, think I'll have to do a wall at a time, but that will have to be in school hours, lol... also want to change he's carpet and have bought him this new unit from Ikea....which I bought and collected last weds, it was a bit of a struggle cos of the weight (97kg) so couldn't take anyone with me to give me a hand, as not sure how my poor little micra would have coped with the added weight, lol... but a very nice man came to my rescue in putting it in the car, (just wish he had been around to help me lug it on the trolley in Ikea, lol).... and when I got home, I was again very lucky, as my neighbours grandson had just came to visit her, so yes he gave me a hand in getting it into the garage, but WOW, it was a draining morning, lol.... so it's just working out what I do first in he's room...

I've also got a 42 page document to go through from the meeting of last Thursday, as I'm now on a partnership board (am one of the people representing carers) to do with learning disabilities for adults, and this has to be signed off by the end of the month, but they want the carers side done this Tuesday... to be honest, I felt the meeting was going over my head, but afterwards talking to others they said the same, that's why we all have to really scrutinize this document and answer truthfully, as I for one, will be quick enough to moan if there's not enough out there for Steven....

trouble is, after the elections, things might all change again :-(

Hi Maria

Was exhausted just reading this post. I love Ikea but always get carried away, forgetting the size of my little car. My mum's land Rover Discovery was always the best - we could fit a full bedroom suite of furniture in it LOL!!!!!!!

Remember and breathe at some point missus!!!?
