Sorry for being AWOL yesterday.  Just plain old had too much to do.  OK, mostly what I did do was sleep in and it was lovely and a marvellous cure for feeling tired.  It was needed.

I also made a blanket decision that I was not going to the house yesterday.  There just wasn't enough for me to do there.  My skills will be called into service on the weekend, when they are ready for some actual cleaning and washing of things.  I took the opportunity to make an actual meal for myself.  I sat and watched TV for a bit.  I washed some clothes.  I knit a little.  The little blue hat is coming along nicely.

Anyway after knitting a little, I found I just couldn't sit still.  It was almost time for bed but I felt like I had wasted my evening. Dinner and rest was, apparently not enough.  What is up with that?

I went to the big back room and built the one last thing that needed building from the great furniture build of 2014, an under the daybed drawer.  And then, in a whirlwind of efficiency, I emptied the bags of pillows and I tucked the bedding into the now completed drawers. I picked up all the bits of cardboard, the instruction sheets, the little bits of tape that was stuck on the floor, all the detritus of building furniture and being unorganised and moved a few things around and...


One corner of the room done!  It isn't everything.  The bookcases are not ordered and tidy and there are still boxes of things that need to be put into those lovely under the daybed drawers, but it feels settled and right.

Home.  I am almost home.
