My brother-in-law and his dental school classmates made this video a while back for class credit,  if you can believe that, and I cracked up when I saw it then. Mr U and I were having a YouTube watching sesh the other night and we rediscovered his video, its still such a crack up so thought I would share. (Ryan is the 'Leather Chaps Guy'...)

The sun has got his hat on...

hip hip hip hooray! And about time too ;)

We are having a mini-heatwave and I am loving it! We have also been having some mini-adventures.

Feeding the ducks, paddling pools, trips to London, shopping at Spitalfields market, cupcakes, walks and sleepy little boys that just fall asleep on the floor.

Wow - it's taken me a while to get crackin' with the before and after pics of our home. We finished the majority just under a year ago! We still have a few little bits to do but here we are...

Bathroom before (didn't actually get any of it, but it's the room straight ahead in the pic with the pink carpet, yum)...


The bathroom after...





 
Bedrooms before (only got pic of one of them, but you get the minging jist)...


Bedroom pics after (only taken pics of the biggest two, the third is painted a lovely light green but at the moment it's my dressing / craft / sewing / junk room so haven't taken any pics)...






Hallway & stairs....

It was such hard work and really stressful as we were living there WHILST renovating, but now we have a home we love and we can just laugh when we look back at that time.

I remember when the kitchen was being put in, we had a little fridge and microwave plugged in in the front room and that was how we ate for a week! (With disposable plates, obvs). 

I also remember coming home to no heating or running water, in winter, over a weekend, as the plumber didn't finish his job on time. We had to go round to friends homes or the gym for a shower and luckily our chapel isn't far and Mike had a key, so we drove over to the chapel to use the loo! haha good times...

7 months...

Shared by Rebecca U at 4:11 PM 0 comments
Our (not so) little Maxibon is just over 7 months, can you believe it. It will be his first birthday and Christmas before I know it! - He can stand by himself now and is nearly crawling. He does move around the room though by rolling all over and pivoting his body around, it is so funny to watch.
- He is on 3 solid meals a day and a lot less milk, so I am enjoying that.
- He is still sleeping through the night - wahoo! - He is napping better than ever before, at least an hour in the morning and the afternoon. He would previously have about 20 mins twice a day, so it is amazing to see what I can achieve in an hour of baby-free time.
- He says da-da but still doesn't realise what da-da is... he still just chats away and is very active and kicks about all the time - He has such a cute laugh and always has such a lovely smile for us first thing in the morning. In other news, my bestie Hailey just got engaged and I am going to be maid of honour! (well, I guess its 'matron' of honour if you're already married, right?)
I'm so pleased for them and glad that we get to be part of their big day :)
