I feel like I'm saying this a lot lately, but... Sorry I've not been around the blogs properly lately. I've been just about keeping up with posts, but sometimes it's taking a couple of days before I visit blogs again. Part of this is due to the things going on with the renovation work, but part of it isn't. The part that isn't is due to the fact I'm not feeling 100% right now (just a bit run down) but isn't helped by the fact I've had a lot going on with figure gaming and roleplaying these past few weeks. Anyway, sorry. And if I don't visit your blog sometimes, it's nothing personal, and I will get there... Honest!
As regards the work being done...
They need to come tomorrow to put some plaster over a hole they left in the wall when moving the location of the cooker switch slightly. They forgot to do it, so when they came to put the wood bits on the bottom of the cupboards now that the floor is sorted, we pointed it out. So, they're coming to sort that tomorrow. Also, when we moved in the skirting board was missing from one side of the bathroom. We did mention it at the time, but nobody ever came to replace it. Then we found out about their plans to do renovation work, so we figured we wouldn't bother nagging at them, since it would be done when they did the work. That's what we thought, anyway. But it isn't what happened, and when we mentioned it today we were told we have to get in touch with the council's maintenance department again, because it wasn't in their contract so they couldn't do it. So, I guess we do need to nag at them about that after all. Still, other than that the work is now done. We'll just need to sort the painting when we can. Not sure when that will happen though, so I will see about getting some photos of the work for you. I can just post new ones again when we do the painting and the rooms are completed.
I saw Emma-Jane again yesterday. Her first tooth - which has been bugging her for a while - seems to have cut through the gum. She's 5 months old now, and her motor skills are starting to be put in to practice. She's now getting the hang of grabbing for items - most of which end up in her mouth - and is desperately trying to sit herself up. She can sit up with minimum support now, and I'm pretty sure she'll be sitting up without support pretty soon. She's also starting to practice making different sound combinations... I think she's going to be one of those babies who are ahead of most other babies her own age. I also think it might be time to start being careful what we say around her, in case her first word ends up being something we'd rather she didn't say at all.
That's all I have to say today, so... Enjoy whatever's left of your day, and stay safe! :)
