Your Regular Sunday Excuse Post
Yes, I’m afraid it is true dear reader – yet another week without me going on and on about something or other. While I’m sure those of you who subscribe are enjoying my sabbatical, I guess I might as well explain a little. We’ve just moved house, and I can certainly vouch for those reports and surveys that state that house is one of the most stressful activities one can undertake in life.
The actual move wasn’t so bad – the removal men were pretty amazing, being incredibly careful with all our worldly goods and being generally understanding and friendly and everything you need on such a stressful day. However, preceding events had meant the move was stressful before we’d actually moved in.
We’d given ourselves two weeks to sort the place out (the luxury of first-time buyers) but that time was swallowed up with a full rewire of the property, the elimination of woodworm and the replacement of many floorboards. Still, at least we got the carpets relaid and white goods installed. A busy two weeks, but not the gentle redecoration we’d had in mind. Rather, a building site with half the floor missing.
Yet, now we have a home of our own and any stress prior to moving in (or following it for that matter) is entirely worth it in exchange for the thrill of building a home with my long-suffering and ever-patient wife. Anyway, enough of the domestic update for now…posts of another nature (or a series of posts on the pitfalls of decorating) may or may not follow shortly! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
Congrats/sincerest condolences on the new house! It’s exciting because you have the freedom to redesign as you please, but frightening on account of all the responsibilities that come with it. Sounds like you’ve seen both sides of the coin with the flooring adventure.
This was Mike, btw. WP didn’t log me in for some reason.
Dammit! Still anonymous. You disappoint me, WordPress.
I have no idea why these are showing up as anonymous.
There we go. Sorry about the comment downpour. Problem solved.
Thanks Mike – both for your congrats/sincerest condolences and for the multiple comments, which at first glance makes this post look far more popular than it was.
