Waiting For Yousaf [Oct. 25th, 2010|09:29 am]
Tony Grist
We took a desk to Keith and Ruth's. It was my father's. He gave it to me when he got a better one, I've had it for several decades and now I'm giving it to my brother-in-law, who seems to have a use for it. We were hoping to get rid of a lot of furniture in the upheaval, but this is the only substantial item that's gone.

Ruth gave us coffee and chocolates. She'd eaten all the nutty ones out of the box and was happy for us to browse freely over what was left- which was excellent, because I've always liked the soft centres best.

According to Ailz's reading of the Mail, Keith Richards has effectively sunk the Stones by writing lots of bitchy things about Jagger in his book. You'd think extreme fame and wealth and adulation would cure a person of jealousy, but apparently not. Richards still smarts over all sorts of things Jagger once did. 

We're  waiting for Mr Yousaf to turn up with his builders and his bricks. He rang a few minutes ago to ask me if I'd unlock the alley gate for him.

There is a satisfaction in seeing space open up in one's home, isn't there?
I hope it's smooth sailing for you and Ailz with the renovations.
Take pictures!

This house is horribly overstuffed- or, at least, it used to be. I expect, once the builders are gone, we'll move everything back in.

No! Down with Clutter! Down with Stuff! Rationalise your life! Please take before and after pics, especially of the kitchen.

I'm resisting taking pictures- though everyone's urging me to. The kitchen looks horrid- and I'm not sure I want a lasting record.

Oh! It's renovations, then--I read Pondhopper's comment below. How exciting! Do you have a link to a discussion about your renovations?

I'm not sure I've ever really discussed them. We're having all our windows replaced, a couple of ceilings lowered and extensive remodelling done to the kitchen.

I'm trying to ignore the goings-on as best I can....

It's a dreadful paper, but it carries all the best celebrity gossip.
