Hi you guys. Apologies for being slack.
This entry isn’t going to be witty and colourful because today I came down with the sickness and I’m struggling to put my words in the correct order, let alone be clever about it.
I really want to be able to show you photos of the work we’ve done on the bedrooms but progress is slow, and I don’t want to show you until all the boxes are ticked. Since we last spoke the blinds have gone up (I’m really happy with them) and we’ve bought hinges and ordered door handles, but the doors themselves are still leaning against the hall walls.
We realised that we can’t really seal the doors while the weather is so bad as we don’t have a space inside that’s big enough to coat them and then dry them with decent ventilation. Not having doors is driving me crazy, so we’re just going to hang them in the meantime and then seal them when spring comes to town. I’m hoping that we can get them up this week because it’s really flippin weird not having doors. Especially when it comes to going to the loo.

I wrote all that yesterday, and then I guess I just gave up, rolled over and went to sleep. Today involved a lot more of the same – I took the day off work in the hope of kicking this cold, but it just got worse throughout the course of the day. Come evening time I had convinced myself that I’d developed some sort of fatal aneurism because I was experiencing a headache like I’d never known, but after a few hours and a few painkillers my head is feeling much better. Am not going to die after all.
It’s getting late and I’d like to make it into work tomorrow, so I should probably tuck myself up in bed. Hope you guys are doing okay!
