Goodbye pink bathroom?

I’ve been waiting for over two years, but, if all goes to plan, it could be very nearly time to say goodbye to my horrendous pink ensuite bathroom.

I was pleasantly surprised that the kids didn’t moan about basically doing nothing all week as I juggled work, thanks to my new contract. Here’s our week in pictures… Day 45 – Sunday 14th February – I often...
