As I sat down to write this at 10.30pm, I realised that I hadn’t relaxed all day. It was a full day of work including a long zoom call. The plasterer was also here for over 9 hours. Firstly he focused on the landing ceiling and used the wooden shelf (taken from our bedroom wardrobes that had been knocked out yesterday) to balance on the banisters. This way he could get to the tall ceilings.
It looked dangerous but it worked for him. I couldn’t go upstairs most of the day and my husband couldn’t come down from the spare room where he’s working. I passed the teas up and we communicated by text, ha ha.
The plasterer also made a start on our bedroom ceiling this afternoon.
He will be coming back on Monday to do the walls and start on the spare room.
When I finished work, I decided that it was going to be a fish and chips night instead of trying to cook when I had a lot of housework to do again.
After eating, I got to work on the cleaning. It felt so dusty and dirty around and it’s not helping my asthma at all. I vacuumed the entire of upstairs and the stairs and swept and mopped downstairs. I’m feeling quite wheezy right now as I completely forgot to put a mask on.
Do you remember that something flew at me in my bedroom last night? We never found it and we’re not sure if it was a bumble bee or a flying beetle. We ended up sleeping on the settee all night (well, my husband actually ended up on the floor by morning). So, we’re both really tired today and because I’ve run out of energy to fully clean and dust our bedroom again, we’re going to have to sleep downstairs again.
He’s already taken the sofa, so I’m going to have a nice bath and then sleep on the round sofa that’s currently in the middle of the dining room. I just need to find some bedding. I’m tempted to just sleep in the bath, ha ha!
The kitchen is messy, but the floor is vacuumed and mopped. I’m still seeing and tasting dust around, but I really can’t do any more cleaning this evening.
Everything will have to wait until tomorrow. I’ve made my weekend lists and it’s already looking full. The spare room needs clearing out so that he can plaster in there on Monday, but we can only put the stuff in a small part of our bedroom. It’s all too exhausting to think about right now, so I’m not going to think about it.
My bubble bath awaits me…
