Week Seven, Day Three [Dec. 8th, 2010|04:24 pm]
Tony Grist
The kitchen sink was the first thing to go. For six weeks I've been washing up in the bathroom, bent over a knee-high bowl.  The highlight of yesterday evening was being able to stand at the new sink in the new kitchen and wash the pots standing up.

The floors are all but finished. Dougie says another hour will do it.

The stained glass panels are back in place. They look good. The windows would be finished if the glaziers hadn't managed to shatter one of the clear glass units. 

This morning we emptied the storage unit- and got our deposit back.

This sounds distinctly like progress. Looking forward to photos of the finished house, especially the kitchen.

I remember in 2005, 6 weeks of washing up in the garden, in a plastic bowl filled up in the bath and carried carefully downstairs, but that was in summertime.

It'll take a long time to get everything back where it ought to be, but I'm making a start.

It is. I'm starting to move things back to where they belong.

What a pleasure it must have been to do the washing up (which is never a pleasure under normal circumstances) in you own kitchen sink!

I've never enjoyed it so much.

I've been following all of this with empathetic horror, Tony. May this be finished once and for all, and soon.

Thanks.

The major jobs are finished- or almost finished- and we can start setting the house to rights.

Good grief, it really is that song.

Excellent news! Who could have thought that such pleasure might be found in the prosaic business of washing up?

It's all a matter of context.
