my twittering  
  • 09:20 discovering that there is a reason cucumbers come wrapped in plastic - it seals in moisture. Another option is to wax them, then we'd peel. #
  • 11:06 feeling trapped. Plumber is here replacing boiler and using every room except study & toilet. Boiler is in kitchen, gas is in bedroom, etc. #
  • 12:01 lots of noise here. He has to drill through the outside wall. And it's solid - no cavity. #
  • 13:23 so much dust in the kitchen. I wish I'd taken more stuff out. #
  • 20:39 eating okonomiyaki (Japanese "pizza", though I say omlette). Yum. It's been too long. #
  • 22:58 dusting... #

What on earth were you doing dusting at 22.58pm???

Trying to get rid of more of the dust created by the plumber. He had to drill through the wall. I foolishly didn't remove more stuff from the kitchen, so there's a lot of stuff to dust. I'm doing it in sections. Such fun.

LOL - yes, it is so much fun, eh??

Still, at least it's keeping you off the streets - and out the shops!!

Today, it's the rain keeping me out of the shops! Had intended going into town, but I really don't fancy it now. Kinda waiting for a guy to come back and finish the job too. He has a key, but I don't know if he'll use it.

Trust me, it's chucking down today in town - and traffic is a nightmare!! And according to the weatherman on Ireland AM this morning, we can pretty much expect the same for tomorrow - possibly could be even worse than today.

I'm so pleased this is my last working day of the week- am so looking forward to chilling out at home tomorrow - and decluttering more books *g*

Don't know if I fancy giving strangers a key to my house - in the past when I've had no choice but to do that, I've always changed the locks afterwards - you can't be too careful nowadays!!

Worse tomorrow? Bah. Then I'd better go today. Goshdarnit.

Is the plumber finished? I wouldn't bother to dust unless he's finished the job! otherwise you'll just be shifting the same dust round and round....
kaz001kaz001 on July 9th, 2008 12:18 pm (UTC)
I second that!! *g*
a very caring potato: houseworkmollydot on July 9th, 2008 12:38 pm (UTC)
Good point.

Not fully finished. But there shouldn't be any more drilling through walls, so the worst should be done. Also, I don't know know for sure when it will be finished. I was told today, but not in a terribly certain tone of voice. I have allergies, so I don't want huge amounts sitting around. And I don't want it to get into the other rooms either. Unfortunately, allergies also mean dusting is one of my least favourite things to do!

I am going about it the wrong way though - I've done a couple of bits really well, rather than a quick job over larger areas. At least I got some minor decluttering done with it.

Any chance you could throw some old sheets over stuff until he's finished - it'd make life easier for you.
a very caring potatomollydot on July 9th, 2008 02:00 pm (UTC)
He's arrived. Says it won't be as dusty today. And that it's unusual to produce the amount that it did yesterday - normal bits of the wall come out in chunks.

Cool - but I still think you should change all your locks when all the building work is done and dusted
(excuse pun *g*)
