Football widow

In today’s news it is suffice to say┬áthat the conception of our second child is being severely obstructed by the football.

I was hopeful that England‘s woeful performance and subsequent crashing out would bring the hubby back to bed before midnight each night but he remains captivated regardless.

I see that Spain v Portugal has gone to extra time so will accept defeat for tonight in favour of a good nights sleep!

5 beds, 6 baths!

As some of my regular blog followers may be aware we have been looking to move house of late. I am keen to be moved before babe no. 2 comes along, (I don’t think I’m pregnant yet but we are planning), as we are now running short on bedrooms.

We have today been to see a house that was worthy of its own blog post; not so much for its potential but it bizarre ratio of bedrooms to bathrooms.

The hubby and I were wowed by the open plan kitchen, refurbished living and dining space and gorgeous rear garden. There was a nicely done W.C. on the ground floor which was a bonus and all was going well. However, by the time we got to bedroom number three it was clear that mr developer had seen fit to cut several feet off each lovely bedroom to create identikit ensuite facilities in every one. The result was a house with 5 bedrooms, (none of them big enough to fit a decent sized bed!), and 6 bathrooms.

The accompanied viewer from the local agent also pointed out to me that cleaning 6 bathrooms on a weekly basis could be somewhat time consuming.

On to the next one….
