Some good news. While we were out yesterday afternoon James got a call from the lady organising the toilet to say that she'd reapplied to the council and they'd agreed to put in the last 1.7k themselves. This is such brilliant news and I suspect the fact we've been sourcing grants and applying to them ourselves and got over half the money we needed made her apply a bit pressure and get that goodwill offer.
We're still waiting to hear from a few other grant places, but if they do offer some money it'll be paid to the council, but if they don't, well, it doesn't matter because we finally have it all.
The toilet is going to make such a difference to James, and I can't believe it could be fitted within a few weeks. Almost as good, as it needs a power supply they're giving us a new fuse box too, which is much needed. We have the old fashioned wired fuse style, and it's at ceiling hight in the kitchen, which makes changing fuses very difficult. They'll be giving us the new style in an easy access position, and just, \o/
I enjoyed the show last night, though am glad my first theatre experience was a play as this felt a lot more amateurish. Plus, it wasn't very full up in the dress circle, though the people in stalls sounded like they were having a great time. I suspect tonight will be much busier, and James is really looking forward to spoiling his mam.
My mam there's no change. She couldn't have visitors last night as a pipe burst in the ward so they couldn't let anyone in. But we'll be there this afternoon and see what's been going on.
I'll catch up on comments/commenting asap. Until then, I hope you're all well ♥
