Then I did some more coding. When I was done, I headed back home - after 8pm. It was DIY time.
My housemate and I started work on the grouting. We grouted until we could grout no more - this was owing to the fact that we'd used the 1kg of grout and had no more to use. So, I went onto some paint stripping.
You can't do DIY all night, so I went back to doing some coding. I did it on my home PC. Luckily, I still had some software development tools on there from the time when I was job seeking and trying to get my skills up to date again. I coded until about 1.30am. I was doing something for my own benefit. If any old my old work colleagues were to hear that I re-wrote my legendary progress bar library in .NET they'd probably laugh. This version is better. Really it is! Simpler.
I slept happy.
