Demolition Girl


I'm not quite sure why this happens. When I took Lyla to mum's house at the weekend, she went upstairs and gouged a huge hole in the wall with her bare hands. She ripped through wallpaper, and dug out plaster. Unfortunately, the wallpaper is 30-year-old Anglypta and the plaster 100 year-old lath. And the wallpaper is holding the wall together. So, in short, there is no possibility of a repair apart from replastering the entire hall up and down. Oops.

Luckily mum is very laid back, but what I can't understand is why she did it. She isn't able to explain it to us and I can't readily think of a reason. So, it'll have to remain a mystery for now. Watch this space.

  3. A very strong little girl; she could save you some money if you were thinking of having some renovations done...!

    I remember Amy going through a phase like this - very unpredictable, a little destructive even. And all you want to do is wrap them in your arms.
