So the reason I’ve been missing in action is due to no electricity or wi-fi for 2 days. For me this has been absolute hell. I tried to be brave and do chores that didn’t require these essentials but in the end I just gave up. I did manage to squeeze in some exercise and painting up some colour samples….. I even tried to keep “on top of the dust” building up, but I now have a truckload of things to catch up on. The reason for the self-imposed isolation – work on my own home has started. Yes the backbone to the “discussions” my DH’s and I had here and here are now underway. Today the sanders are in, so more mess is on its way. Any sane person moves out but we’re going to mostly tough out the dust and chaos.
Well actually not completely tough it out. To ease this burden we are going to disappear for some R&R for a week leaving my trusty builders in charge.
I was very focused about picking a destination though as I had a list of wants (well more like demands) so diametrically opposite to our usual holiday/break requirements, this time I wanted;
- Guaranteed sunshine
- A pool and beach
- No reason to sightsee
- No long haul flight
- A spa
My lovely DH has complied with all of the above and we are off to laze by a pool/beach and not be culturally active. Can’t wait…
I'm also not trying to think about the mess we'll come back to or the 6 more weeks of building work
