It is officially warmer outside (10'C) than it is in the cupboard I call an office (almost hitting 8'C).
Still: this means that I will be getting my steps count in as I keep finding excuses to wander around to warm back up.
I think I've decided where the chickens are going! You know... when the house is finished and we are allowed to start on the garden (so... May?) I've had to phone up the carpet fitter, stove fitter, central heating plumber, and plasterer to let them know not to even think about us being ready before Christmas.
Not sure about the Green houses though.
But there is a plan. His lordship has two weeks off for Christmas. Although we spend it with family I need to get back up here for work: so surely he wouldn't stay down there with them? (Not if I can guilt trip him or more importantly his mother he chuffing wont). This means instead he'll be sat in a cold dark shell of a house while I sit in a... erm cold dark shell of a museum.. if this doesn't motivate him into action than its a good job he'll be working off site in January so I can get another man in to do the job quick before he gets back!
I have an aloe vera on my desk. Its looking rather sorry for itself. I think I need to find some clear plastic to build it a mini greenhouse if it is to survive the winter in here.
