I've identified my room, which is father's old room, as a road block. I ground to a halt last year and never really picked up so it has become something of a dumping ground but badly organised, so I didn't have anywhere to put anything. If I want to clear other areas of the house I need to have places to put them, and that means sorting out my room and the junk room. However I managed to clear a very small space, which still filled several bin bags/donate bags and there's much more to do.
The plan was that as the electricians were coming at the first cough of the sparrow I would wait until bear had gone to bed before moving all the stuff around in the kitchen and dining room. However I got a call from the electrician to say that they would not be there until around lunchtime. So tomorrow morning I will be moving the kitchen stuff around. This is perhaps just as well. I have just come back to my computer after spending at least three hours with bear who has a tummy ache. I am not sure how much is your actual tummy ache and how much is being overtired but it's been a long evening.
Last night I spent far too long watching videos about braided rugs and stuff made out of newspapers. I found this particularly intriguing. It is far too hard for me, luckily, so I don't have to stock pile newspapers and magazines. If I do try anything, I'll share. Here's a picture from one channel that I found amazing. It's in Spanish, which I don't speak (yet) but the way she shows the process is incredibly clear.
Maybe I'll try it one day
