Checking my watch

(no subject)

I've been demolishing shelves in the basement. Rough wood cobbled together and attached to the wall with 20" nails. I've also made an exploratory hole in the wall of the basement into a void. I'm not sure but there may be a further room under the house.Probably the only way to be sure is to have the floorboards up and get in from above.

In other news a quick fix in the built in wardrobes turned into a major job a visits to several DIY stores today. Please don't ask. I'm too tired.

I'm beginning to regret giving the lodger permission to paint her room.... mostly the regret is due to the dodgy music that she's playing while painting. I wonder if it's too late to amend the lodger agreement? ;-)

Now I'm writing this rather than deal with a pile of paperwork. I do paperwork better if I'm at Peggy's café... trouble is I'm now 100 miles away from that café.

I've owned the new house for 1 month 2 days. I guess as I didn't move right away I shouldn't beat myself up too much about not having got too far along with settling in. Much of the remodeling will have to wait until next year, by then I should have a better idea of what I want to do and what needs doing.

Still.... one month... It's flashed by.
