Fairly momentous day – we have chosen a loft company and given them the go ahead. I have decided not to name them on this blog, just in case it all goes tits up and I feel the need to use this as a forum to rant about them.
Did I ever actually mention that we’ve had confirmation that the planning regulations are changing in our favour? No I did. So, the planning regulations are changing in our favour. Shock horror. The government actually did something sensible. Which means we will be able to do a proper loft conversion (the technical term is hip-to-gable) providing us with a decent amount of space up there. We will then be able to shut the door, turn the TV up really loud and pretend we can’t hear anything when the babies are crying.
The plan is that it will be done by Christmas. It all seems a little unfeasible to me, seeing as how that is just 3 months and 2 days away, but we’ll see. We’ll still have to decorate, tile the bathroom, fit the carpet etc in January, but it would be nice if we could actually have the house sorted in time for the new arrivals. The official due date is March 3rd, but twins never go full term, so they’ll probably arrive some time in late January/early February. It’s all disturbingly soon really.
