Still here? We are, still surrounded by decorators and contractors of various kind but not everyday... And more and more rooms are ticked off the list... And the number of boxes has declined sharply, which is nice.
I'm still missing the one with all the charges (currently dead laptops are us) and the ones with the chopping boards and my steaming pan.
On the plus side we have now have a functioning telephone line AND wifi. No 1, who had begun shrivelling up and dieing, is slowing springing back to life. I might even manage to blog more... There are so many things to catch up on!
On the down side I was so late in getting school stuff organised that afore mentioned child, who was inconsiderable enough to grow again during the summer, will most likely start school in his pyjamas. Either not enough trousers for skinny/tall 14yr olds were made or everybody else is suddenly the same size as he is, which is frankly quite a freaky thought. Imagine being surrounded by a whole population of perennially hungry, lanky, teenagers whose voice is deeper than Barry White's and whose sarcastic language is mostly incomprehensible, slothing around from chair to chair...
