Living On A Building Site

The bathroom sink has gone, so has the bidet which the cat used as a cat bed. Two bathroom cabinets have come down; I sorted through them yesterday and they were full of things nobody was using- including my father's shaving kit. We have an upstairs toilet for the time being (which is nice) and the bath is still in position because it's made of cast iron and the only way Peter says he'll get it out is in pieces. He'll see to that tomorrow; he warns us it'll be noisy.

The last time we let ourselves in for serious building work was in Oldham. That was much grimmer than this: for one thing it was far more extensive, for another it took place in winter. On the other hand we were younger and more resilient.
