Karl And Eddie [Jul. 17th, 2006|05:30 pm]
Tony Grist

Karl and Eddie are decorating our front room.

Karl calls Ailz "Eileen"- which is a common mistake- and me "Terry" which has never happened before.

Karl and Eddie, Karl and Eddie- see I remember both their names!

But they're doing a fine job (I think). They tore up the carpet (and Ailz and I ran it to the tip) and then they took off all the wallpaper (a job that the rabbits started). The plaster behind the wall paper was in a sorry state- one section looks like someone may have hung a dart board there once- and Karl filled all the cracks and holes. Tomorrow, when the filler has dried, they'll put up lining paper.

This is my second post on the day that I announced I wasn't going to be posting so much. Oh well!

Ah, you see, you may think you do, but I bet they think the same about you two! Perhaps their names are really Charles and Edwin?

That's OK, Sweetie...

"This is my second post on the day that I announced I wasn't going to be posting so much."

We didn't really believe you... neither did you really. Denial is not a river in Egypt, you know?

I had a feeling I was going to make a fool of myself...

Oh! Silly!

We all know that you're no fool! That's why we read you. We would so miss you if you actually did stay away. You know that, right?

That's what I have to do in my study. Except that it was the pet rats who started the wall paper stripping, not rabbits.

Pets, all pets, are so destructive. It's the pact you make when you take on an animal- OK, I don't mind my stuff being messed up.

What I'm doing (I think) is giving myself permission not to post on days when I have nothing to say. I've spent too many hours racking my brain for suitable subject matter. In future, if it ain't pressing it don't get talked about.

Are there wood floors under the carpet? Or are you having new carpets placed?

People often call me Kathy. I have never figured out why, Terry.

Can you take some before and after pictures? How are the bunnies doing in the chaos?

How fun! I can't wait for photos.

My best to Eileen!

The floor is timber, but pretty rough, so we're having some fakey wood stuff laid on top. I'm told it's the right thing to do.

The bunnies have moved into the back room. I don't think they like it.
