The house is on the mend - it has windows, it has electricity- but hardly any of the jobs are finished. The kitchen is half a kitchen- with cooking facilities but no sink. Yesterday we did one or two things to cheer the place up. Ailz found the curtain hooks (in a bag of allsorts I was sure I'd searched) and I re-hung the curtains in the back-room. Also we stopped by the storage facility and picked up a load of books which I've returned to their shelves- and a picture which I've rehung on the wall.
