Well, the joiners departed today, leaving clouds of dust and wood shavings everywhere. It wasn`t quite as bad as I expected, but it was still pretty bad. And still is...we have no wall cupboards or intact wall plaster in the kitchen, holes or missing tiles round most of the frames and because the frames haven`t been sealed in yet, the house is whistling with draughts. And fingerprints on the walls, raw wood frames to be painted and curtains/curtain rails to be replaced. By me...no spare money for unnecessary tradesmen, Hubby at work all day. Me or no-one.
And the worst news...I have to clean the house. You know, cleaning? I don`t do cleaning.....
On the plus side, I have lost another three pounds, despite the stress and Fig Rolls. Must be the exercise involved in shifting half the furniture. Plus I have cast on my emergency stash of Noro Shinano shade 10, long discontinued and carefully horded. I`ve finally decided what to make with it...Bettna, from Noro Revisited.
Noro as therapy....I`ll clean tomorrow, no?
