Then comes the fun part, the furnishings! I've been looking, but there is so much choice! Some of the stuff is really, really expensive, not sure I'm prepared to pay £60 for one piece of dolls house furniture. I did spot some job lots on ebay, well since it is 'my' house, I'm not one for overly modern furniture, I like classic styles. It was fortnate that mum and I had similar tastes when it came to furniture, I remember when she was looking for a cabinet for the living room we both spotted the same cupboard, it was the same with the suite. The suite is now on its last legs, and now that Harvey has stopped clawing at it I can think of getting a new one. If I could afford it I'd get the old one reupholstered, but it would be too costly.
I am also learning all about patience. I can tend to rush things, but I was determined to break that habit with the house. I've taken my time, and have realised when to stop, though my back lets me know. The back has been really problematic these last few weeks, I tweaked it getting into the car, yep that is all it takes, and for days it was agony. I tried my stretches but nothing was working, just had to let it settle down. I feel like a right old crock at times. I got my HRT sorted, but only after much faffing about. I went back to the chemist to pick it up, but as I got there so did their order, so I had to wait until they found it. I wouldn't have been so grumpy had all the staff been working, but it seemed a couple were staying out of sight and ignoring the ever growing queue. I was trying to get all I needed for the next few days as I decided to have a bit of a quiet time. When I got home I found a surveyor waiting, our housing association is having all its properties surveyed... not what I wanted when I was gasping for a sit down and a cuppa. The young man was very pleasant, and he didn't take too long. Harvey of course did a disappearing act, and the flat was looking a mess! Well with a bad back it is hard to do housework.
There'll be more house updates over the next few days. I may tackle the roof tomorrow, I found some grey card. Yes I had started the tiling, but having followed the instructions on Youtube I realised that my roof needs bigger tiles, the card I found will be perfect, and there is a lot of it!
Right, all from me....
