I had decided that I wanted to get some decorating done. The "dining room" in particular needed a little help and I decided to have the hallway done at the same time. My dining room is rarely used for dining but it is often used for sewing, sometimes used as a bedroom and I have previously called it the Room of Shame on this blog.
Anyway, I had to empty the room for the decorator to do his bit. Add to that the stuff from the hallway and my general untidiness and you will see that even at the start of the week I had a problem.
I decided to sacrifice the sitting room.
Anyway, the decorator moved in and I went out as much as I could. Until he said, "Did you realise that you have a large bulge in your hot water tank?" No I hadn't realised and once I did realise I was rather uneasy! Phone call to the landlord and visit from plumber. I had to empty the linen cupboard. The tank was replaced.
The plumber and the decorator have now gone their separate ways and I have my home to myself. Not that I can relax exactly. This is my sitting room this morning. The plus side of this photo is that I know I can find my vacuum cleaner and Father Christmas is giving me a cheery wave.
I may be some time.
