Thoughts on Thursday...

At nearly 40 I have come to the conclusion I'm a cynical optimist... I don't expect things to go my way as I'm not that lucky... However should things work out in a manner that is pleasing to me ... It's a bonus!


I'm a planner... But I'm learning to be spontaneous...

However I think I might be just learning to be better organized incase of a spontaneous event occurring...



For example ...
I have a beach bag full of everything you'd need for a beach visit from first aid kit to glasses for drinks and lotion for sun plus wet wipes for sticky ice-cream situations... It's all cram packed into a reasonable sized bag... Beach towel too... Mind you I think this exists because Les rarely suggests a trip to the beach so a bag was put together so that he didn't have time to change his mind ...


When stuff goes wrong... I am learning to shrug my shoulders and think... Oh well ... Shit happens... And that's my way these days...

This way of thinking could be my saving grace this weekend... we can hear a water leak in the bathroom... But we cannot see a water leak in the bathroom... So the bathroom will be gutted (it really needs doing!) and the leak found and repaired... We surmise it is under the tilled floor... Which I don't like as it's really slippery when you step out of the bath...

However there will be much debris, dust and muck spreading into the kitchen and a skip needs organising and the kids will be at mums till it's fairly clear to come home... Thank crunchie for mums that help and other half's that can turn their hands to most DIY duties... Fingers crossed I end up with the bathroom of my dreams... However if I expect a functioning bathroom then everything else is a bonus! ;D

I will do before and after pictures... Lol

Better go ... Daniel will be finishing school in 40 minutes .... And I have to get there a little early otherwise parking is a pain in the arse...

Take care
Alex

I'm not sure what flooring we'll have ... But I have requested tongue and groove on the walls ... I'm aiming for an old fashioned 1940's simplicity ... Xx hopefully no tiles ... :D ... But thanks for the offer! Xxxx

You go for it girl you deserve a lovely bathroom, ok I know you would settle just to have a functional bathroom but I'm sure it's going to be lovely just like that kitchen of yours.

I thought you were describing me to begin with! I expect nothing which means i'm not dissapointed.

Good luck with the bathroom, that sounds like a big job.

I LOVE the idea of a 'standby beach bag!' - might have to do this for the summer. Fab idea! xx

I hope you got a parking space - and maybe went straight off to the beach?! How sensible to be so organized - I am always trying, but not always succeeding . . .
