Something BIG is happening this weekend! But we don't know what....we don't understand...everything is changing and the people are running around emptying the house...everything is gone and our home looks chaotic....
...so here we lay on our day beds in the kitchen...nobody told us to come here but we can feel it when things aren't right, so we cower in our beds and stay here all day...
....they've ripped up all the carpet...we hear that our Mummy has been wanting to do that for years because our big brother suffers from allergies and breathing problems...they're going to put down tiles throughout the whole house.
...hours later and we're still here...
Mummy was so shocked to find a "sand pit" under the carpet when they ripped it up...inches of thick dirt and fine sand from six years of heavy traffic...how unhealthy!!!
Marley is particularly stressed. Are they going to leave us here and go away....I'd better follow Mummy around from room to room as she works.
Sunday morning and now what is Daddy and big brother doing...ripping up the bathroom??? Mummy says that the insurance builder is coming to fix up the damage that the leaky burst pipes made a few months ago, ruined the vanity and underneath the bath. Daddy is taking the opportunity to get rid of the old bath and put in a new adult size one.
"Mummy, you won't leave us here with all this mess will you? Marley and I are worried, we don't understand why everything is upside down."
The kids are working hard! Mummy and Daddy are very impressed with the way they love to help.
Sigh.....how long is this going to go on?
Now what!!! Daddy found an ants nest in big sissy's bedroom when he pulled up the carpet in there. Eeekkk!!! Mummy sprayed them but they keep coming back. What a disaster. Better ring pest control tomorrow morning. Daddy says they're not termites so that's a relief. They're just the normal black house ants...still they're annoying. Mummy said "hmmm, so that's what that black dirt was I found under the window sill every now and then!"
I'm getting a bit bored!....Is it nearly over?
More ants....they're in every wall of sissy's room.
Last night the whole family camped out in the loungeroom with the heaters on and had Thai food take out for dinner. Mummy was so worried about us stressing that she even put our beds in there for the night. Daddy said "Just this once!" We usually sleep in the laundry, but Marley was so stressed he just went on back to his own bed and didn't come out until daylight! I slept in between Mummy and big brother most of the night but then I went to look for Marley to keep him company.
....watch this space for more destruction on the way...
BUT....a light at the end of the tunnel. By next weekend all new tiling and no more allergies hopefully!
