Our painters were supposed to arrive at 7.30 am. Unsurprisingly they did not turn up at all. Our project is so far behind schedule partly due to the missed promises of the painters.

So instead we enjoyed the sunshine. We walked the dogs and then had a summery lunch of Greek salad and smoked mackerel.


Then time for a cup of tea and a quick sit down:


Imagine that you can’t see those boxes, the ones that wait patiently to be unpacked.. Imagine how lovely it’s going to be in 6 months’ time.

In the meantime, we can pretend that we live in the Med. In the meantime, I must go to bed. Jet lag has hit me hard today and I keep falling asleep. Which is annoying.
