wow! we got an offer!

If you've been following our housing saga- we're currently in temporary housing (not to mention rent arrears) Then heres some good news for us

We are going to view a house with 2 other familys next weds!!! Well, the kids and I are as Clive is at work. We're probably the 3rd option couple, but we've been offered a viewing!!!!

It's a bit off the beaten track and neither in Isleworth NOR the surestart area, but it's big enough to sleep the kids in a room of their own AND house their clothes and it has a garden (or I'd not have bid on it!)

Thing is, I eitehr want to be in the surestart area or isleworth so I really hope that the highest priority couple takes it (and that we're not the highest priority!!)

It's Real Nappy Week!

Just thought I'd share the fact that it's real nappy week LOL. Apparently there are a whopping 4 parents who use cloth nappies in Hounslow heh. Well we had 5 Cloth covered butts between us!

We also started stay and play in the new family room in te new community centre today. The room is much smaller than previosuly, but when all the work is finished there iwll aslo be an outdoor area. I do like the brightness and open plan style, it's almost sectioned off but not quite! Everyitng is at toddler/baby level which is nice (for them LOL)

Biggest pain is you have to hike the kids to the bathroom or kitchen with you if you need to go to teh loo or want a cuppa.

Love You Rads

What's the life of a man any more than a leaf?

A man has his seasons, then why should we grieve?

Although in this wide world he appears fine and gay,

Like a leaf he shall wither and soon fade away.

Just cause!

I couldn't post one without the other. Sian was in a grouchy mood and this was one of the few good pics we got of her.

Boo at 6mos

Beth 2 days before 6mos. Notice how well she sits up? Sian was 8mos before she started even considering this feat! Boo has been sitting for well over a month now.

Kew Palace

We went to visit Kew Palace, before it is completley finished and opened to visitors. It will be gorgeous when it's done. They are restoring it to as close to original as possible as they can. In the lift they have a replica of what the wallpaper would have been like in one of the princesses bedrooms. Only 15 children! Unfortunately we couldn't take photos inside teh palace, but mum did get one of us outside, as you can see. It was a gorgeous day, but cccold and windy!
