We are getting the windows replaced. It will have to be one at a time and we have had a very nice local firm round to quote and measure up. We will have to wait as we are doing bear's window first, and it doesn't open. This means that the very nice man will have to come back with ladders to climb up to measure the outside when he's got the van with the ladders.
The man looked at me seriously and tried to break the news gently that we will have to re-decorate. I don't think he was expecting me to punch the air and say, 'Yesssss!' We need to desperately need to decorate and this means that we have to do it.
In other news, bear is voluntarily practicing the piano. For some reason he has taken to 'Donna e Mobile' like a duck to homicide and is slaughtering Verdi at least twice a day. I'm just thrilled that we've finally found something he will practice without threats, coercion and bribery.
