Today

The electricians came.  More of our house fell gently into the kitchen.

I planted out annuals into the cutting garden and ox eye daisies into the orchard.

The chicks got lost in  the long grass.

The state of our house sent us off to our pub for burgers and very good chips.

Ian wanted to watch "Dave".  I was snotty.  QI was on and I was wrong.

It got, happily and hardworkingly and the days are too short, to bed time.

  1. But it has to get worse before it can get better, will be worth it in the end

  2. QI is always on, somewhere. We will learn to loathe it eventually for that alone.

  3. 0h dear. I've been there with a kitchen reno. The children were small and we'd work at night after a full days make-a-living work. When we went to bed, sometime after midnight we'd have to lay large sheets of plywood over all the holes in the floor, just in case one of the children got up during the night. I was SO glad when it was all finished and I could stop washing dishes in the bathroom sink!

  4. Just remember to take plenty of photos, then you can relive the nightmare for years to come (and laugh).

    Happy rubble, Cro.

  5. I share your pain. With the builders in at the moment, everything is covered in dust.

  6. This too shall pass. That was a mantra for us when we were also in the midst of home renovations ... it's nightmare stuff! Hang in there!

  7. I sympathise. We're shortly to be in the same situation - the front room and bathroom are about to be ripped out and put back together. Trouble is the builder is rubbish and very messy - it's me.

  8. I thought you were 'snooty' about Dave but now I realise you were just 'snotty'. Presumably an unrelated state. Well, unless you have cable-channel related allergies. Which I suppose you might. I do.

  9. This reads like a poem. I like 'more of our house fell gently into the kitchen' - there's a sense of tragic inevitability in there somewhere. Same with the chicks getting lost in the long grass. You do write well, even when you're not really trying to!

  10. Don't worry, the days are going to get longer still. For a little while anyway. Enjoy yourself.
