Weekend16 October 2017
It’s late, the weekend is almost completed, and I ache from the successes during it.
We recently found out the dining room carpet was damp. Chastising our lovely female cat is out of the question so last weekend I sliced most of the floorcovering into conveniently-sized rolls and took them to the tip.
Meanwhile my wife had priced up a very fancy lino to replace the previous luxurious pile. Saturday was fitting day, so Friday after work was me shifting 2 bookcases, 2 CD/DVD shelving units and their contents, an overladen sideboard, and the stuff that builds up as one’s loved ones live, all out of the room.
The herringbone-pattern wood block-effect lino is lovely, we won’t have the peeing issue again, and most of the furniture and books and stuff is back where it came from. Did it fit right back again without much effort? No; the back of each of the CD shelving units and one bookcase required inexpertly hacking at to accommodate the change in height between the previous and required notches to clear the skirting board.
Yes, of course I’ve been asked to move one bookcase to replace the living room electric fireplace now donated to charity. No more convenient mug rest for me. (sighs)
I’ve participated in a small way during the pnut.io Hackathon Weekend. But I’m tired, I’ve already written too many words, so I’ll blog about the wiki next time.
