So for the last 25 days we’ve been away from home: first at Masterton, then later at R.‘s sister’s place in Hataitai.
All this while the bedrooms in the house were being insulated and re-lined; the floors sanded, and then, unexpectedly, the bathroom redone.
We’re home now; the place is liveable, but there’s still a lot to do.
It’s at these times one wishes for Barbara Eden to wave her fingers and just fix it all up, but that’s not how things work. Unfortunately. (Or fortunately – that whole premise was a bit dodgy…)
