I have been distracted this week - not only was it the first of the May Bank Holidays, but the landlady has sent a proper builder to fix our bathroom, which has had problems with damp and mildew, especially during winter.
There has been an extension of the time it will take, as underneath the first layer of wall tiles to be removed were a further three layers. Can we say 'shonky' ?
I have to say, I despise people who take the short, easy route; who do a crappy job of something just to make it a quick and cheap fix; and additionally, it usually turns out in the end to be more expensive than doing the job properly in the first place, because the fixing the rubbishy short-cut(s) costs money and time on top of doing the actual job required.
Add in the grey and wet weather,which means oh so many muddy footprints across the floor (in spite of a doormat) and it explains why there is no point to housework this week. Hence the 'dutty' of the title; which also means that I have caught a whole bunch of Law & Order episodes that I hadn't seen, while I race along with knitting Mini Diva's Delphinium Shrug ...
