5 weeks and 3 days to go....

Not that I'm counting. An Alien has landed though. He always does that when some significant event looms on our horizon. The last two times this happened has been when Christmas was just around the corner. The first time it was the children's room that got the treatment and was transformed to a semi liveable state enabling our bairns to no longer having to sleep on the sitting room floor and get back into their own beds for the first time in months. The second time was two Christmas’s ago when I invited my parents to come to our house for Christmas dinner. To say that my mother is not a fan of Georgian dereliction is a bit of an understatement. She is famously noted to have asked me on her first visit to our abode as to 'when is Tony going to apply for a council house?’ It was the hallway that got the last treatment. It was great. The Alien duly landed (assisted by our 'live in neighbour' Frank) approximately 1.5 weeks before the parental visitation resulting in the replacement of a gaping hole with a ceiling with lights and a real grown up light switch to make them go on AND off again! How cool is that!!! That was two Christmases ago. Things ground to a halt until this week when the Alien landed again. He's quite a nice chap really. Looks a lot like my husband Tony. If he were sat in front of a computer or in the Port nursing a pint of Guinness it would be impossible to tell them apart...............
The alien is making a cupboard, a bathroom and a bedroom and is transferring a kitchen to the basement. He seems quite happy though. The problem is I've nothing to moan about now - AND I find this Alien really quite sexy (shhhhh..... don't tell the husband.............
