In London today, weather is not good.
Lovely weekend, Kez and Dez visiting Friday night so we got a curry from the new RajBari Indian right near our house. The Escondido for lunch the next day too, a proper weekend of gorging ourselves actually. Sunday, Bluewater, a big spend up on curtains and things. Bought quite a bit but did not spend as much as I thought we might as we managed to get ready made curtains and did not need the made to measure service. We do need the skills of the mother-in-law to adapt these to fit though, her previous sewing services have been great.
Nando's for lunch on Sunday at Bluewater, and then a big Chili on Sunday night. A nice light salad for lunch today here. It's not all about food, but it's mostly about food... did not get everything we wanted in Bluewater, but mostly, a successful trip. I have some more DIY to do now, fitting the new curtain pole and putting the curtains up, then I also got some more remote controlled light switches. Clare is particularly pleased about this... no, wait, she thinks they are a big waste of time! Maybe they are a bit, but I have them now, and it is the one thing I know how to do, so I'm going keep with it. I think I figured out how to "retro fit" some remote opening and closing action to any curtain poles, so I'm keen to have a go at that. This idea is even less welcome than the light switches though so I will have to be a bit careful about it. If I slip up and make things even slightly worse (ie pull the curtains down, puncha hole in the wall etc) then I will be in trouble...
The boy was a bit of a monster Friday night. Did I already say? Not sure, but he was up in the middle of the night and howling, and so as to not disturb everyone else I took him downstairs to sleep on the sofa, as he would only stop crying while I was holding him. Saturday night and last night were both fine though, a bit of an issue getting him to sleep to start with but then no problem through the night.
