Emptied of expectation. Relax.


Well, I didn't want to post anything until we'd confirmed in case I jinxed it but we have a plasterer! Yes, there is plastering taking place in our bedroom as we speak. The reason this is quite so pleasing is that when we rang round the plasterers in Yell.com there was a wait of about 6 weeks and no-one would even come round to quote us for the work. Fortunatly, it turns out that Alex's next door neighbour at work has a semi-retired plasterer father so we got in touch and he's now getting on with it and I will have beautiful smooth walls to paint in nice shades, probably of purple.

Partly as a result of this, we had to get a wiggle on and get the rest of the paper off the ceiling this evening (horrible stuff, really!). We managed to get this done really quite well but I think I wore Alex out! Poor love. Fortunatly we'll be able to indulge in a bit of relaxing hanging out this evening and recover. The carpet in that room is truely disgusting at the minute (although we don't plan to keep it as it was pretty gross already) but the whole thing will be worth it in the end when I have a nice tasteful bedroom to enjoy with no bumpy wallpaper or stained carpet or plastic curtain rails. Plus the next stage is the painting, which is always fun.
