Living with builders

The progress so far, and how I’m coping.

It’s weird when the builders are here. I suppose it’s obvious that I can’t carry on as cimg0312normal, but there are little things that are disturbing my life as well as the dust and the constant banging. My morning routine has changed as I have to get dressed first, instead of making the packed lunches in my dressing gown in case they come early. I can’t do my workout videos in the living room in case one of them sees me. I can’t sit on the settee and watch telly in an extended lunch break in case they think I’m lazy. And despite their typical builder’s attire, I’ve found myself staying in the clothes I wear on the school run, instead of changing into my baggy saggy round-the-house clothes during the day! Worst of all, I can’t talk to myself like I normally do in case they think I’m crazy!

The romance of a well
November 18, 2016
I was pretty much brought up on Enid Blyton and it instilled in me a desire to live in a cute cottage in a countryside village. A well in the garden would be an added bonus. Well, although more of a farmhouse than a cottage, I am lucky enough to have fulfilled that dream. We were told by the previous owner that the well in the garden used to also serve the farmworkers’ cottages opposite. The path leading from the well to an iron gate half way down the garden would suggest that’s true. We live at the top of a hill, and as far as I’m aware, the only other well at the top of the hill in Somerset is in a small village called Kilmersdon, which is famous for the Jack and Jill nursery rhyme. Wouldn’t it be cool if that’s a mistake and it was actually our well? Haha!….
