Oh dear, this could be short today as we appear to have had a pretty stormy night and the power seems to have bumped off at some point, causing all the clocks in the house to reset. Can you see where this is going? Yes, slightly late after an over-sleep. I cannot remember the last time. Fortunately I am an early riser naturally, so rather than 6:15am it was 6:40am, so just 25 minutes, but that makes all the difference as there are jobs to do still, not least this. Anyhow, chickens are done, coffee made, breakfast here and I need to still catch the 7:34am to Portsmouth Harbour.
The road at the end of the lane has been pretty nicely re-surfaced, as they promised, although it took a day longer. I was tempted to ask if they had 600 square metres spare to do my part of the drive, but it never quite seemed the right time
Managed to get some more of the wood trim down last night but the route was not simple, we had to lay a sub base to the mat well trim and then glue the mat well trim to that. Without it the trim would have been dangerously floating with a possibility of the trim snapping if someone trod on it. So, tonight we hope to get the carpet underlay down and the doormat in. The door bar between the hall and dining room was cut but for some reason, after scraping out the excess adhesive from the expansion gap between, the ‘no more nails’ glue seemed not to want to adhere well to either the floor or the wood of the door bar. That will have to be a job for tonight along with the last bit in the living room in front of the grate.
Anyhow, gotta dash………
Mood meter = Hate being late although the week has progressed toward the weekend quite nicely!
