Birth of Mitchell

We’d like to introduce you all to our new son, Mitchell Robert.  He was born in the afternoon of 6th August 2009, weighing in at a massive 4.5kg and 59cm tall already.

Meeting Gok Wan!

I ran into Gok Wan today at Oxford Circus. He is of course famous for making women look good naked! He kindly posed for a photo. EDIT: Gok didn’t introduce his friend at the time but a reliable source tells me it is Ruby Wax.

We both had a quick coffee and shared stories and he pointed out some funky shoes which I ended up buying.

I picked up this pair at Schuh

Flooring work

Some light construction work has been going on at the holmesmacleod household. We’ve laid down the new floors (without worrying about the underfloor heating) and as you can see in this picture, Lena enjoyed putting in a helping hand.  Most of the work was Greg and his dad Brian. We had a friend (Lewis) drop by to give some handy hints and lend some tools at the start.

A lot of work took place fixing the subfloor until it was slightly flatter than before. Then we put down a layer of blue foamy underlay. 

Finally we topped it off with our Rustic Oak boards. They are nice broad and long boards which fill out the house nicely, in the living and dining areas. Right now we are putting the edging and final touches in.

Who knows what the next project will be, but this one was a nice piece of fun!
