On Melmac, saying "have a nice day" is punishable by death.

I am not about to buy a harmonica

Hello family 🙂  Here’s a wee post with a great video of a frenchwoman I have subscribed to.  She plays the harmonica really well.  Things have been quite busy, and its been great to be off work….so I can concentrate on some things up in the flat.

As for the flat its been more work, and again of the sort that makes you feel like you are going backwards rather than forwards.  There have been so many posts about stripping walls and lath and plaster I won’t bore any more.  Since moving out there, I suppose things will be faster in coming together, but moving all of the crap out has been a setback over the last week.

Well the good news is the bedroom walls have been squared off, and I’ve taken away the framework that used to house the insanely oversized water tank, loads of plumbing down into a hot water tank (copper, so worth keeping for the beer money).  Also the bathroom bit which used to extend into the bedroom (shower cubicle) has now gone.

At least 10 trips to the dump with four or five sacks of rubble each time!  The amount of material coming off this flat is amazing.  Look out for some photos soon.  I’m sort of caught inbetween elation in seeing the potential, and feeling a bit under the weather with all of the work that lies ahead…..or how much we are still off getting the living space liveable again.

And we still need to wait for the electricity people to get the new fuse board installed again….and….and….

Tomorrow I am going up with Brian – he is going to look into getting the kitchen floor down.    Ach well, a long chat with Maggie can often scheblonge a blogpost so here this one will wrap up and now just enjoy the aussie girl 🙂

Let me know what you think….

    Nice blog post – it will be worth it in the end, you just need to take some time out from it any minute you can, sit with your salt lamp lit and relax. Any time you are stressed, make yourself do 3 deep breaths, it is surprising how something so simple can stop the world feeling so busy. Book yourself in for a massage anytime you can. I will give you a massage when we visit too 🙂
