We have an interesting take on garden design going on at the moment. Our front garden currently contains grass (in dire need of a good mowing), a half-alive and half-dead hedge, some very confused daffodils who currently think it is autumn 2013 and a toilet. And a sink. And some bits of shower cabinet. In fact, practically everything that used to constitute our en suite shower room is now in our garden. Very classy it looks, too. We should really take the wheels off our W reg Astra and stick it up on bricks, just to complete the effect. (There is in fact actual moss happily growing on the window seals of the Astra which makes it a garden feature already in my book.)
Thankfully, Fraser The Gentleman Plumber and his trusty sidekick are working hard to instal a shiny new shower room for us and that should be ready in about, ooh, two weeks or so. But in the meantime?
We are having to share a bathroom with the boys.
(And yes, I know, being reduced to one bathroom between four can hardly be called a hardship. Nonetheless, there is no getting away from the fact that, much as I love my children, I can't wait to not have to share showering facilities with them. Doubtless they feel the same, judging by the eye-rolling going on every time I point out that the cardboard centres of toilet rolls do not climb into bins unassisted.)
