Week Seven, Day Two

Yesterday the temperature dropped to -4. Today it's at -1. We're having to go out in it to collect stuff from the storage unit. I have a roll of coconut matting I spread on the ice so Ailz can walk to and from the car.

The laminate in the small front bedroom is down, the laminate in the small back bedroom is mostly down. Work is beginning on our bedroom today. The other big bedroom is so jam-packed with furniture that the only way to feed the rabbits- who live down the far end-  is to stand on a stool and lob bananas over the barricade.

England won the second Ashes Test. Hooray!
