Day Seventy-Three

Yesterday nothing happened works wise but we did move the big cupboards that have been taking up a huge amount of the hall.  The hall is now clear and tidyish – it feels massive – a bit like ‘A Squash and a Squeeze’ by Julia Donaldson.  The old lady in the story fills her tiny house up with animals so that it’s seriously overcrowded, she’s guided by a wise old man.  When she gets rid of them all she feels like the house is much bigger and better than ever before.  Great message there.

We have the last shower and screen in place, it looks brilliant and huge – need to wait a bit to use it though.  The grout in the upstairs bathroom had a little issue which is now fixed thank goodness.  The front room is now useable, in a kind  of haphazard mismatched kindof way, L needs to study for some end of year exams so it’s only fair he has somewhere that does not look like an obsessive hoarder’s house.

Other Stuff

The guineas thought they had gone to heaven today when I put them in some long long grass in their run.  They had a good go at it – just as well since the lawn mower is at the mender’s (up a wee st in Edinburgh that looks like an old Wild West set – really).

Well,  it’s that time again, have a brilliant weekend, I am hoping lots of painting and sorting is going to make the place an oasis of calm by Monday. as if!  xx

p.s. Sorry HC, no flowers for you today, hope you’re not too upset. xx
