Haven’t they worked hard? My house is playing musical rooms a little like the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party or the Faraway Tree.

Loads of stuff has gone into storage and in a couple of weeks time the back of the house will be sealed off and we’ll be living in just the front room and the temporary kitchen (and out stuff-packed bedrooms) for two months. Let’s hope it doesn’t run over.

Then there’s the garden to think of, reorganise and plant. This is causing us a few nightmares at the moment but I hope we’ll find a way through.

I’ve spent most of the day catching up with the second tranche of the Boywonder’s ironing but now I’m off for fish and chips and a beer!
