Of course you can post a quotation from me on Facebook, FiberQat. I am honoured that you should want to.
Life moves forward. The insurance company is going to arrange for the dismantlement of the ceiling, and pay the contractor directly. I hope we’ll see some action next week. Then David from ChemDry will come back and see what state the timbers are in. He also wants to inspect a layer of “deafening” which (even with the ceiling down) is best seen from above, by taking up the neighbours’ floorboards, I am happy to tell you.
The man Helen C.K.S. recommended is going to remove three large pieces of furniture on Monday, and keep them in store somewhere. We've got to spend the rest of the weekend moving as much as possible out of the room. My husband is not strong enough to do much, but he is well capable of thinking about it and organising it and getting cross about any decision of a what-could-go-where nature which I might make on my own.
A furniture restorer came yesterday and will soon let us have an estimate. Then begins the struggle to get Upstairs to pay.
Kristie is engulfed by chaos too, and has been good enough to include a cross reference to me. I don't mind chaos, really. But I hate crossness, and dealing with the world.
I was overtaken by a sudden, dreadful depression yesterday. On top of all this, the iPad lost contact with the internet. I rebooted it several times to no effect. This morning I tried re-starting the BT Hub which radiates wi-fi over a small area at this end of the house. That did the trick, and things seem better in general, as often in the morning. There doesn’t even seem to be as much stuff in the dining room as there was yesterday.
Not much of that, but some. I put a strong, irrelevant stripe into the Sky Scarf for the missed days, and we’re now back on course. For the moment. Today’s stripe is done, a nice blue one. And I reached stripe BBB on the snood. So that’s colour C finished – only tiny fragments remain, but that was the idea. And if C can do it, so can B. There should be no more need to knit fast in order to finish the stripe before the yarn runs out.
