I forgot my camera. Again! Doh! Tomorrow: I promise, I promise…
While there was no camera, there most certainly were lights. I installed new overhead spotlights in the kitchen, and in the hallway. What a difference. I know that sounds obvious: gosh what a difference when you can see the room you are in, but the new lights have transformed the kitchen.
We also put together three IKEA uplighters (from the Anthrax-esque ‘Not’ range) which we purchased for a cool £5.50 each! The bulbs (energy saving ones) cost more than the actual light … incredible!
We got a lot done in the house today. After five years of marriage Jane and I have finally worked out how to work well together: we don’t! Instead we work to our strengths, which complement one another. I prepare the walls, remove rawlplugs, fill holes and cracks, sand things down, and Jane paints.
We discovered that one of the radiators isn’t working, at all — it could simply need bled — and another is leaking, at least the floor in front of it is wet. We’ll need to get that seen to before we order carpets; which we were hoping to do tomorrow.
We’re getting there. I’ll post some photos at the weekend — while I’m supposed to be writing a sermon!
