It's only just beyond breakfast time in some hotels (the sort of hotels I'd like to stay in), and already I've managed to see a lot of progress. It's a costly day, but sometimes you have to just live with costs. This morning, I was up and about before 8.15 - the benefits of a housemate who gives you a knock. The builder had also started work at this point and we discussed various details. I now have a plan for what DIY I'll be doing on Wednesday. On Wednesday I'll also be receiving delivery of the kitchen units (well, the builder will), which I ordered today. Oh yes. The kitchen will be operational in days.
As an encore, I organised for someone to jet out my drains and there will be an opportunity to work out what the hell to do about my newly located kitchen sink and washing machine in drainage terms, at least. They're not in place yet. But, they will be.
Not satisfied with solving some of my own issues, I did some Amazoning yesterday to solve a friend's problem and received a delivery notice that some of the solution is on its way. I like solving things.
All before breakfast ended... in some hotels.
