The Poor Maintenance Man

He’s been out again. It’s the same bloke every time – either he’s on his own, or he’s just getting very lucky. 
But he has fixed our bath!!!


It’s faster, smoother and generally wow. Oh such a relief. 
(Yes that’s gunk from the fixing, yes I’ve cleaned it)
Tiny Tyrant did harass the poor man a lot, then spent about half an hour standing in the bathroom mumbling and grumbling and pointing at the bath. Think she wants one!

Even had a small breakthrough with lunch today:

#1 Son ate everything except the banana (he’s gone off them for some reason) and TT ate some of most of it.  
They did so well I cracked open the Birthday Cake Yo-Yos (what #1 Son calls Oreos) and was told “Mommy these yo-yos are the softest, stickiest and yummiest of all!”
Safe to say he approves I think πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£
And for you tea lovers out there, we have found a brand that doesn’t require two bags per cup to be decent!!!! πŸ™€πŸ™€πŸ™€πŸ™€
Amazingly it’s by Trader Joe’s and it’s Irish breakfast tea and it’s awesome.  
I’m fighting some kind of hideous neck-migraine so I’m going to relax in our new bath with a glass of wine and Netflix for a bit then catch up with Game of Thrones and knit.

  1. Hi Fliss, delighted to see you are absorbing so much Americana so fast and continuing to settle down so well. One guide we tend to use a lot for restaurants both on line and in print is Zagat, which is based on customers survey. You can get the Boston guide on Amazon. I don’t know what web based grocery shopping is like in the U.K. but here Gary and I are doing more of it and basically going to the shops only for fresh produce. One brick and mortar shop you must try by the way is Costco, a large discounter with good fresh produce that is also a cultural experience. Thank you for the updates, your children are gorgeous and you are such a great photographer!

  2. yeah, at Costo you can buy expensive luxuries such as scallops or crab meat really cheaply, as long as you don’t mind buying enough to feed an army.

    I can’t wait to hear all about the school visit in tomorrow’s update! The hus creature seems to be able to take time off work whenever something important crops up. Microsoft seem to be a great employer!
