So here I am awake at 2am after an evening of overindulgence at my lovely neighbours. When will I ever learn self control?
Might as well fill my time with something productive so here’s the latest.
So we had our first home visit. Bit of a non-event really. Our lovely SW asked if we’d tidied up for her with a smile on her face. Erm, well, yes but it’s normally kind of tidy.
So this is the garden, good, enclosed. Bedrooms, good size (although currently stacked with new bathroom and in the other an office). Lots of space downstairs both for play and quiet time.
Running through the H&S check list and realise the banister has gaps which are too wide – 5 inches instead of the recommended 4. Lots of ooo’s.
Where do the cats sleep…everywhere. Is that ok?
Locks on cupboards? Erm no but we’ll ensure the cleaning stuff is in a lockable place when the time is right.
Computers need to be downstairs. Internet access needs to be monitored.
TV – sky, parental controls? Erm probably.
One hour later I ask How are we doing? Good she says. Your challenges that you’ve overcome show you can be resilient and the house will be good for kids.
Just need to get that bannister sorted, the rest you can think about when you know the age of your children.
Phew! No cake required. Non event.
