I don't want to jinx anything but..
... having helped me clear the bedroom of any last items that had sought refuge in there he has taken it upon himself to put new floorboards down. Its not quite the installing the electrics I hoped for (after all a plasterer can dodge the creaky boards) but it is a start in the right direction.
It occurred to me that this time last year I was reliant on an outside toilet (with no lights: to make it most fun for midnight tiddles the dog used to accompany me with his light up collar), no indoor facilities.... and we had turned central heating off while the re-plumbing was done.
NEXT YEAR I AM INTENDING ON HAVING THIS HOUSE SO WARM FOR NEW YEARS I WILL BE ABLE TO STRUT IN MY SWIM SUIT*
(*having of course succeeded in the new years resolution of loosing enough weight to fit in said swim suit)
The first of the fire works started at 15:00, the next at 18:00. At this rate there will be non left for midnight! Poor Reggie has had his dinner early and will soon be retreating with me to the bedroom (the one that still has a floor) for an evening of being read too in the hope that we can keep him contented while the world ends around him.
I hope you're all having a glorious evening should that be what you want!
