Well, got Monday over and done with and the week is underway. Today sees the first of the World Cup semi-finals with the second tomorrow. It will seem pretty strange for the tournament to be over and with Wimbledon also finished, it looks like there will be a sport famine of a few weeks after Sunday. That should actually please Jo but me…can’t wait for the start of the new season for Saints. Still little moves on the transfer front for them but that is nothing unusual with the transfer window for attached players only opened in the last few days.
Forgot to to make a big announcement on Lindsay’s University degree. I’m not sure why although it may be that we are not going to her graduation until 20th July, but she got an overall 2:1 degree and a 1st for her dissertation so that’s a tremendous result for her and great reward for the work put in. Listening to the news this morning, it appears employers who are short of jobs for graduates are upping their minimum requirements to a 2:1, so that’s something she fits into too.
Managed to get some work done in the house last night and it was pretty pleasing, although I did run out of time. I have fitted the architrave to two doors and the small bits of skirting around the reveals. I am stalled on a few bits while I decide what to do as the floor slopes away a bit and leaves a gap. I’m thinking I will level the top of the skirting and fit a bit of scotia at the bottom as I will have to do that around the staircase anyhow.
Also managed to fix the garage lights which had a wire broken and they were certainly working last night.
I’ve discovered it is quite a trek to the bottom shed when you realise you need a tool or some fitting or another for the house. It is probably a five minute round-trip at least. What offsets that however is the fact you can find most things fairly quickly. That is apart from the gripfil so, I have not been able to stick down the door and mat well transitions which are cut but will need to wait for that.
