Apologies for the lack of blogging yesterday. I was rather distracted by such things as finishing my decorating and getting my hair cut and other such things.
The decorating is now finished and I am pleased with the end result. I really will put some photos on here, but I still need to take a photo of the end result. Looking at the photos I think the way the room looked before I started was nice, which it was but it really needed to be repainted as the walls were a bit of a mess and it also did not go with my fireplace at all. There is now a distinct lack of colour in my living room now though, so new curtains etc are called for. Something else I want is a snake draught excluder. Maybe something like this. Only I would rather go and but one in person that over the internet, so if you happen to know of somewhere in the South East of England that sells them then I would be interested to know where that is. I have looked in loads of places and can’t find anywhere that sells them. At the weekend I took the opportunity to visit lots of shops that old people might frequent but was still unsuccessful. So any tip offs would be appreciated.
I still haven’t got my car back because they are having trouble fitting one of the replacement parts. I should get it back today. Hopefully. It’s a decided pain that it isn’t fixed though because I am going to the dentist this morning and it would take me about 20 minutes to get there by car, but about an hour and a half by public transport. I tried to call my mum last night to ask if she would give me a lift, but no-one was at home. I suspect my father was actually at home and just ignored the phone, as is his way. Fortunately my mum called me late last night and said she’d give me a lift, so it isn’t the early start that I had feared. I haven’t slept in any day this week, I’m not very good at making the most of my leave it seems. But at least the decorating is done. Anyway, I’d better go and get my teeth checked.
