I’ve not made any mini-blog posts for a while because I’ve spent the last week constantly in and out of the toilet.
The good news: I didn’t have a dodgy stomach!
The bad news: (for me anyway), I’ve spent over a week, and more hours than I care to mention, on my own in the Square’s three toilets, getting them up to scratch for all of you discerning parents.
We’ve decided to make all of our toilets unisex, for maximum flexibility and to avoid any confusion should you need to take a small child to the loo with an older sibling in tow. So we’ll have 6 toilets in total (“no toilet queues at The Square” was one of straplines that didn’t quite make it into print)! We’ll also have two dedicated baby-changing areas, built by yours truly, so just make sure baby doesn’t start sinking during changing…*

It was also while working on the toilets that I realised just how many doors we have in The Square in total, especially in the corridor where the toilets and party room are sited. I’ve therefore come up with a master plan…colour-coded doors! OK, it’s not quite up there with E=MC2 or String Theory as far as ideas go, but I was pleased with it. Or maybe I’ve just spent too long on my own in small rooms but it would be far too exciting to let you have my secret colour-code all at once, so for now you can just start training your children that if they see a YELLOW door at The Square, it means TOILET! I’ll just have to make sure I don’t paint the wrong colour on any doors or we could end up with some embarrassing, erm, mishaps…
After tomorrow, I should have the toilets completed and I can then move onto the much more congenial environment of the party room 🙂
Until next time
*I joke of course, the reality is, I over-engineer anything that I build, to the point where, should the nuclear sirens start sounding, there’ll be an emergency call for “everyone to hide under the baby changing tables”!
