on wednesday, with torrential rain predicted for the end of the week, work finally began on my bathroom roof.
that was fine. the mess and dust was fine. the cold – fine. making endless rounds of tea for builders – fine. crawling out of the backdoor under ladders & trestles – fine. cleaning up soot every night so we could use the bathroom – fine.
it happens to have coincided with a freakishly busy sewing week where i can hardly keep up…
but i’m a trooper, so that was fine too. i simply divided the day into more portions… admin, work, maid, tv/admin, work, admin, bed.
6 hours sleep is fine.
but not today. today all of these things are not effing fine >:(
painful (cripple hands, remember) cleaning efforts WASTED when the paper roof turns out not to be watertight: not fine AT MIDNIGHT.
builders not turning up today due to non-delivery of velux window: not fine.
variety of dust allergy symptoms induced by continuing damp and soot and filth: not fine.
